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. Like we got there in less than an hour. Anyhow, here I am riding western as we trotted the property. More stories and photos to come. Listen to this: these lots range from one-third to two full acres and get this pricing — don’t fall off your horse: $70,000 to $120,000. I have an idea. let’s get a 5,000 square foot home here, a condo in downtown Dallas (Ritz, House) and call it our second home!

It’s ski season! You know about the real estate auction business, yes? I have tried to educate my readers (and myself) about this growing and phenomenally great way to pick up extreme real estate for a great price. I am told that Dallas pipeline magnate Kelcy Warren LOVES to buy real estate through auctions and […]
I’m hours away from my flight home to Dallas and figured it was time for a Hawai’ian roundup (and share some odd pictures with no meaning beyond amusement value). This year I chronicled my real estate travails in Hawaii for SecondShelters.com. It started innocently enough with an interview with the local Berkshire Hathaway Home Services […]
