Rarely does an opportunity this exciting and this versatile come along. Just 45 minutes from DFW Airport — and just one easy hour from Dallas — is a ranch estate that makes the perfect family home, relaxing weekend getaway or inspiring corporate retreat.Comprised of 100 gorgeous and groomed acres, the estate has an impressive centerpiece: a 5,300-square-foot modern Hill County–style home. The grand living room’s soaring ceilings, fir beams and dramatic wood trusses set the tone for the whole house: both rustic and refined. There are Australian cypress hardwood floors, solid alderwood doors and custom stone countertops throughout. A flowing, party-perfect floor plan offers several spaces for entertaining, including the open kitchen with its commercial-grade appliances. There are screened porches for relaxing and a large covered patio for entertaining, all with scenic views. One of the most unusual and enjoyable features of the home is the third-floor lookout tower, with built-in seating and 360-degree views of the gently rolling Texas countryside in every direction. The home’s many luxuries include three fireplaces, a media room and a whole-house indoor-outdoor audio system.The master suite feels utterly hidden away from the rest of the house, and offers a sitting room, spa bath and private courtyard with stone spa and outdoor shower. A second-floor bedroom offers its own bath, and utmost privacy. Family and guests can also escape to a cozy casita — just steps from the main house and connected to it by a porte cochere — with its own bedroom and bath, the latter with a soothing steam shower. A remote guesthouse on the estate offers tremendous luxury and privacy, too, with its own bedroom, kitchen and bath — and a patio for watching those Texas-size sunrises and sunsets.The ranch estate offers boundless pleasures. A 7-acre lake with fountain is stocked for fishing and features its own boat ramp, and covered boat dock. There is a private seven-hole golf course, for novices and pros alike. A charming country barn is the perfect place for horses — the open pastures are ideal for riding — and comes complete with its own estate office. The property offers an herb garden, rock garden, fire pit, lighted pathways, four-car parking pavilion and two loafing sheds.Every structure on the estate is immaculately maintained, every detail thoughtfully considered. The home offers commercial-grade infrastructure, construction and safety features, including a steel-doored concrete safe room in the master suite and a 55 kW generator that can service the entire home. The ultra-quiet geothermal HVAC system efficiently uses the lake water for both heating and cooling and is complete with air cleaners and room-by room independent controls. There is both city water and a 780-foot water well.Celina is one of the fastest-growing cities in North Texas. Situated in high-growth Collin County and nestled between the major arteries of Preston Road to the east and the future Dallas North Tollway to the west, Celina is positioned geographically, demographically and economically to become a major player in the metropolitan community. Residents are only minutes away from Frisco’s “$5 Billion Mile,” major hospitals and the top-ranked Prosper and Celina school districts. Celina is also known for its celebration of authentic culture. Its signature event, Cajun Fest, and its many other family oriented events — ParkFest, the Friday-night farmer’s market, Movie Night on the Square, the Splash & Blast Fourth of July celebration. For the adults, several local wineries promote an interest in culture and good wine.Golf, fishing, parties, picnics, family dinners, weddings, retreats: This unique estate is elegant, exciting and one-of-a-kind. Impressive to the enthusiast, engineer, architect, friends and family, it offers resort living — every day or on weekends and getaways — a mere hour from Dallas.
