PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

CONTEMPORARY RANCH BARNDOMINIUM, BUILT IN 2011, SITUATED ON APPROXIMATELY 30 ACRES OF THE MOST SCENIC LAND WITHIN LESS OF ONE HOUR NORTH OF MCKINNEY WITHIN EASY ACCESS OF HIGHWAY 121.

Entering the property, take a recently redone, re-milled asphalt drive approximately mile around a thick grove of trees to a picturesque and secluded home site. The structure is 100 by 60 with a 10 porch overlooking the valley, which leaves 4800 square feet enclosed with half in the shop and half in the house. The shop offers plenty of space to store ATVs and farm and ranch equipment as well as plenty of cabinetry and a basketball goal. There are three overhead garage doors and two other doors to enter the shop. A recently re-sealed asphalt driveway connects all three doors. There is a 20×20 concrete slab/ wash bay outside the west-facing door.

Entering the 4 BR, 3 bath house, buyers will appreciate the stained concrete floors and color palate of grays and whites mixed with maple cabinetry. The kitchen, dining room and den are open concept and allow plenty of room for entertaining. A wall of windows facing east draws your eye to significant change in elevation on the property. From the porch, you can see the lower pasture and appreciate the 100 feet drop in elevation. One of the 4 bedrooms is a bunk room which has three sets of bunk beds (two twin/full and one twin/twin) which are perfect for kids. Two other bedrooms have queen beds and the master is big enough for a king bed. The house has county water and a septic system. The entire living area (kitchen, dining and den), shop and porch have a zoned speaker system so you can enjoy listening to music while you work or play.

The land itself is approximately 30 acres and has an ag exemption on all but the 1 acre where the house sits. The top pasture is beautiful Bermuda grass and there is a nice barn at the front of the property. Once you round the bend in the road, youll see thick trees along the ridge line and feel like you are in the hill country. The house has approximately an acre of grass and a sprinkler system surrounding it and towering trees surrounding on all sides for great privacy and seclusion. There is one pond between the house and the road in thick foliage and trees. Taking one of two paths down the hill to the lower pasture, youll pass an electric fence on your way to the bottom of the property which is bisected by a (mostly) dry creek bed and tree line along with a large pond before going back up the other side of the valley to the tree line at the propertys edge.

THIS HOME IS PERFECT AS A WEEKEND RETREAT TO GET OUT OF DALLAS AND IS CLOSE ENOUGH FOR AN EASY (LESS THAN AN HOUR FROM MCKINNEY, PLANO, ALLEN, RICHARDSON, ETC.) DRIVE FROM MOST LOCATIONS IN DALLAS NORTHERN SUBURBS. OR, THIS COULD BE A FULL-TIME HOME FOR A FAMILY INTERESTED IN ENJOYING THE PEACE AND TRANQUILITY OF THE PROPERTY FULL TIME.
