I found the most amazing property today in Gunter, Texas. Would make an AWESOME second home. Way the hell north of Dallas, north even of Deion Sander’s home, which I think is still on the market, all 29,122 square feet of it but I think it’s been reduced from $21,000,000 already. Anyhoo, this development is called the Bridges at Preston Crossings, a 1580 acre former private horse farm (Cattle Barons was here twice and no cars got stuck in the mud, nanny nanny boo boo!) that a brilliant group of developers named Bluegreen turned into a living community. There’s an 18 hole golf course, a clubhouse, pool, 24 acre fishing lake, greenbelts and forests and yes this is all in Gunter, which is like a little Marble Falls (minus river) north of Prosper.

Panama City Beach was 8.3% of all Dallas originated searches. This according to a report from the folks at Trulia, who checked into which […]
Growing up in Chicago, Saugatuck was one of many beach communities where folks who went to beach communities went. My childhood summers were spent in the cement pond rather than a sandy lakeside beach. In my 20s, I discovered Saugatuck and its sister city, Douglas, located on the Lake Michigan side of …. well … […]
