This is so dreaming but this is what my fmaily dreams of when we buy our 2 lotto tickets every once in a while LOL The only thing we would change is enclosing the pool so we could use it no matter what the weather and Alyx and Taylor want a red little one room school house in the yard for school like the one pictured below

North Texas Ranch Paradise Near Dallas, Texas

Beautiful Home & Guest House Set on 89 Acres

Luxury Rural Living – Less Than 1 Hour from Dallas!

Perfect for the active family who enjoy the outdoors and love to entertain.

Also a great property for a corporate retreat or company vacation spot. The property offers a huge variety of recreational opportunities, 5-star living and entertaining facilities, and plenty of room to build additional lodging or a corporate conference center and meeting areas. Would also work great for a camp retreat for adults and/or children. The ranch offers a 2400' runway for small private aircraft and the McKinney airport is only 20 minutes away and offers complete jet service.

Situated on 89 beautifully-manicured acres, the property features multiple living facilities (over 7,000 sf under roof), a 2400' runway, ski lake, numerous stocked ponds, live running water and exotic game animals. This property would make the perfect retreat home to escape the stress of the city, but close enough to Dallas to make an easy commute to work or for shopping. No expense was spared in the construction of the facilities or the improvements made to the land. This is an incredible one-of-a-kind property.

The owners just completed a $1 million plus renovation. All the hardwood floors in the main home downstairs were replaced. There is a company in Maine that takes barnwood from actual old barns and turns the wood into the most incredible wood floors you have ever seen. These incredible wood floors are one-of-a-kind (at $60/sf)! Next, all the stone in the main home entryway, den and front office/gameroom has replaced with a beautiful new cut limestone - a new style that creates a clean and elegant look. A new closet makeover in the master bedroom has to be seen to be believed. The barn has been completely renovated with cedar walls, new flooring, built-in furniture - this once barn/office has become an upscale quest quarters complete with it's own bath and kitchen. The guest house downstairs received all new Whirlpool Gladiator flooring; upstairs a 450 gallon salt water aquarium was installed. 25 additional acres were purchased in July, 2009 to accommodate the construction of a 2400'runway and lake. You can fly in and fly out of this property -- nothing like landing in your own backyard! Also just completed is a regulation sand volleyball court, horsehoe pits, shuffleboard courts, 5 trap shooting stations around the lake - no shortage of recreational opportunities here!

A great place to live is also a great investment opportunity! Tejas Ranch is located in Collin County. Collin County is one of the fastest growing counties in Texas and is experiencing tremendous growth. Additionally, to accomodate the incredible growth in this sector, there is a proposed Collin County Outer Loop, which is a major thoroughfare that will connect the north end of the Dallas North Tollway to 75; and then on to Hwy 380, and then to the Rockwall County line. This proposed loop will run within 1 mile of this property, which could increase the value of this property considerably.

Exotic Game - Approximately 40-50 head of exotic game animals are for sale separately (not included in asking price). Exotic animals include Zebra, Elk, Water Buffalo, Antelope, Watusi (African longhorn), Gazelle, Scottish cattle and more.

Taxes: The current owner has an agricultural exemption on the property (except for 1 acre right around the main house. With this exemption in place total property taxes for 2010 are $6,912.43.
