Horse People, take a look! Here we have the famed purple unicorn combination of acreage, a real barn, turn-outs, not ginormous home, and close enough to the city that you can actually run a business or drop into the city with ease. The 19.44 acre property even has several rentals or barn help homes on the back to help with income stream.

The ranchette at 200 Bevans Circle is the former home of Bevans Arabians, a top Arabian show barn. With the popularity of Arabian showhorses in the 80s and 90s, these Arabian show barns were built with a spare-no-expense attitude, with every amenity. The 4,705-square-foot main owner’s home features two large bedrooms and four bathrooms, with towering ceilings and tons of windows overlooking the entire property.

The real draw of Bevans Farm is the OMG-A-MAY-ZING 24-stall Morton barn complete with concrete barn aisle, stained wood stall fronts, grooming/bathing areas, feed room, tack room, and half bath. Half of the stalls also have attached turnout runs. Morton barns are arguably the best on the market, and this one is no exception. It is absolutely paradise! There is also an outdoor arena that was formerly covered, and the concrete supports are still in place if the new owner wishes to re-cover it.

This awesome property is just perfect for a serious horseperson that doesn’t want to be too far away from the city. Rockwall ISD and just minutes from shopping in Rockwall. Only 30 minutes to Dallas for a super easy commute.

This home is just so beautiful, so one-of-a-kind, I’m a bit at a loss for words. Built in 1914 by a prominent Commerce family, the John T. Knight home is a fully renovated masterpiece of charm and elegance. Mr. Knight was a big shot in this little town, serving as both the banker and the grocer, and the home is reflective of his Edwardian-era status.

Boot Ranch Chef Aaron StreitmaterBoot Ranch is our favorite vacation (or permanent!) home community in the Texas Hill Country. When Chef Aaron J. Staudenmaier moved to Fredericksburg (from Dallas — he worked under Chef Kent Rathbun at Abacus, Jasper’s and at the farm-to-table concept, Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen) to become the Boot Ranch Executive Chef in October 2012, he came with a vision to showcase the best of the Texas Hill Country farms and vineyards in five-star style. With several seasons of exploring the best farmers and vendors in the area under his belt and refining his creative ideas with their ingredients, Chef Staudenmaier is ready to share some of his introspection and findings. His quest continues and the bounty begins:

Y’all were expecting the typical Pilot Point white-columned mansion-on-the-hill, huh? Nope! This magnificently unique ranch home is just waiting to be loved by the adventurous, equally unique modern family. A Santa Fe style hacienda on the outside, the interior is straight out of Meet The Jetsons with a dash of Mad Men. Does it get cooler? No, no it does not.
