This stunning 84 acre estate
offers a sprawling custom spanish-style home designed for entertaining, an inground
pool, guest apartments and equestrian facilities on some of the prettiest land
you will find around Lake Ray Roberts' horse country corridor. From the home's
private setting, there are beautiful panoramic views over rolling fenced
coastal pastures dotted with grand-daddy oak trees, ponds and a 3-acre lake.
Set on a moderately wooded
hilltop and built in grand Texas style in the mid-1980’s, the 6,300-plus square
foot single-story home offers a spacious layout that centers around two huge
living areas with a vaulted wood ceiling and a massive double-sided rock
fireplace and expansive kitchen and dining areas, all with ample room for large
gatherings. The roomy master retreat has
a vaulted wood ceiling and a rock wall with a wood-burning fireplace and the
two guest bedrooms each have private full baths. There is also a large private office with a
half bath, a three-car garage and a courtyard with covered porch and inground
pool with full pool bath. The views from
the home are amazing and extend all the way to the Denton skyline.
Separated from the home are
the horse barns, shops and several guest apartments. The main barn is insulated and heated, has 10
interior stalls with rear windows for ventilation plus an adjoining 2 bedroom
apartment. There is also a 12-stall
barn, a covered round pen and several storage buildings for equipment and supplies.
The land is truly
spectacular. Previously a polo ranch,
there is a wide level area near the horse barns that was used as the playing
field, but the rest of the acreage is more scenic in nature, with rolling
cross-fenced bermuda pastures set up for livestock, with water and loafing
sheds. The soil is a sandy loam, there
are 4 ponds, a picturesque 3-acre lake
with its own water well to keep it a constant level, and a current agricultural
exemption in place.
11320 Saint John Road is minutes
from a state park and boat launch on Lake Ray Roberts and close to the growing
cities of Denton and Frisco.
