TWP-Marvine4048A

Despite what it looks like, no, this gorgeous ranch in Aledo is not a dream. It is totally real, and it is truly amazing. This award-winning ranch in Aledo is just a short drive from D/FW International Airport and sits on 176 acres. It is the ultimate equestrian experience, a world-class training facility for those serious horse people. I mean, this is the Landry Center and Cooper Clinic for horses and it’s gorgeous, too!

Front of Home

Talk about location, y’all! Commuting distance to Dallas, and right by Highway 75 and McKinney, 4445 County Road 208 in Celina is for the working rancher. The property is a modest 7.22 acres, so plenty of room for a few stay-at-home horses without being overwhelming or too much to take care of. Seven acres is still what I like to call “riding lawnmower size.” No tractor required.

Welcome to Horse Country

Horse People, looky here! As a specialist in horse property, I’m always being asked to find clients  a “modest home on acreage, set up for horses”. Well, here it is! True horse people care much more about the land than the house, but this one is the rare gem that has both beautiful accommodations for the equines, as well as a stunning updated home for the two-legged loves of your life.

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.

If Mabank is the new Athens, then this house is the place to be. Located a mere 60 miles from Dallas, this is the perfect weekender, but is close enough to the city to commute if you need to. For the price of a typical subdivision home in Highland Park, you can have your own ranch paradise on 220 acres, right near Purtis Creek State Park. Talk about a great bang for your buck!

BarefootFarmsEntrance

Howdy, folks, and welcome to Barefoot Farms. We’ve explored a lot of cute hobby farms, nice vacation homes, and quaint gentleman’s ranches here on Ranch of the Week. This is not one of those times. It’s time to cowgirl up a little (ok, a lot), and check out a real incoming-producing working horse property in Sanger, Texas.

Barns

This is Barefoot Farms, a 19.26-acre equestrian paradise for the serious horse trainer, breeder, or anyone aspiring to own a big-time boarding business.

There are six different living quarters on the property, including a charming three-bedroom two-bath main home that has been completely remodeled into the perfect practical owners’ quarters.

Barefoot Farms is really quite whimsical for such a hardcore horse property, which honestly, I just love about it. The guest quarters and ranch hand house have a country-chic southwestern feel that just makes you smile.

Alright, I’ll admit — what really made me smile about this amazing facility were the incredible equine amenities. This place is a horse lover’s dream. The six barns have more than 90 stalls, complete with multiple tack rooms, wash racks, and two hot walkers.

InsideBarnThanks to this totally bi-polar winter we’ve been having here in Texas, everyone with an indoor arena is envied by the rest of us horse owners. This farm has not only a 120- x 200-foot covered arena, but also a covered round pen for your all-weather riding activities.
