Cattle drives and grazing horses. Fenced green pastures and tree-shaded lanes. Rolling hills as far as the eye can see. These are the things of which legendary ranches are made. Welcome to Furst Ranch, a truly unique property that offers peaceful country seclusion yet is just minutes to city conveniences, major business districts and the Dallas/Fort Worth International airport.
Ideally suited for comfortable family living or as an idyllic corporate retreat, Furst Ranch offers all the essentials needed to maintain a working ranch and accomplished equestrian facility. The 24-stall show barn is equipped with two wash racks, an office, full bath and oversized tack room. Additionally, there are a 200×100 covered arena, auto horse walker with panels and a 1,400-square-foot foreman’s house. Particularly noteworthy are the 9,000-gallon storage tank and two water wells serving the barn, house and executive office.
The 6,651-square-foot main residence provides a luxurious take on lodge-style design with an artistic display of quality materials and detailed craftsmanship. An abundance of glass fills the two-story home with natural light, while ensuring peaceful views from every room. A retractable screen and concealed blinds convert the primary living space to a theater room complete with a kitchenette and wet bar.
Complementing the five-bedroom, five-bath interior plan is an extensive flagstone terrace where a swimming pool, spa, fire pit and adjacent putting green welcome relaxed outdoor gatherings. Meal preparation is easily facilitated in the island kitchen outfitted with Sub-Zero, Viking and Dacor appliances.
Augmenting the primary house is a separate 2,500-square-foot office complete with a library and billiards room, four-seat bar, vaulted ceilings and soaring windows that capitalize on scenic views of the surrounding countryside.
