Ranch of the Week: Grand Texas Country Home in Italy, TX

White Fence

Front of House

Well, looky here! Surely this charmer is someone’s dreamhome. Located within the magical one hour bubble from D/FW in Italy (pronounced It-LEE, if you’re a local), this stunning estate on 33 white-fenced acres is sure to please.

If you haven’t visited yet, Italy is a lovely community with many ridiculously awesome horse farms and ranches, giving the impression you are in the outskirts of Louisville, Kentucky, rather than 50 minutes from downtown Dallas. Italy is the perfect landing point for a family that wants to be in the country, but yet still within commuting distance for work and entertainment.

Main Living

Den

Den 2

The extraordinary home at 320 Dale Evans Drive (aka the most awesome address ever …) is a true Texas-sized mansion with 8,362 square feet, featuring eight bedrooms, six full baths, and one half bath. Gorgeous hand-scraped wood floors, custom light fixtures, top-notch professional gourmet kitchen, great room, game room, formal dining, study, and full-sized theater complete the ultimate luxury in this stunning home.

Kitchen 2

Kitchen 1

Every aspiring chef with love this light, bright professional-grade kitchen complete with oversized island, stainless double ovens, gas range, and gorgeous double refrigerators. I don’t even like to cook, but drool. I’m sure catering would look just lovely arranged across the island, right?

Master Suite 2

Master Suite

You’re certainly the master of your domain in the enormous master suite, with a stone fireplace and huge windows offering stunning views of the property. This just looks peaceful.

Media

Bar

Fancy a drink? A film? No need to go into Dallas! Love this incredible theatre, especially the Secretariat poster on the wall. There are media rooms, and then there are theaters, and this is clearly the latter. Very impressive and so well done.

Party Barn

Pool 1

Pool 2

Keeping with the trend of over-the-top-super-cool throughout this home, the sparkling double pool is no exception. The huge spa, waterfall, and tile slide will be fun for the entire family during hot Texas summers. And for the grown-ups, check out the funky rustic bar in the party barn. Can you say “Ranch Party”?

There is also a horse stable with five adjoining pastures, but unfortunately the listing did not include any photos of this icing on the cake.
