A Home Where the Palo Pinto Mountains Beckon
April 15th, 2014 | by admin
Looking for an idyllic escape from the city? Come to the beautifully rugged Palo Pinto Mountains about an hour west of Fort Worth. There you will find the Lazy H horse and cattle ranch at 521 Indian Creek, which could be a resort, a hunting and fishing get-away or a planned residential development.
With 35 acres of coastal Bermuda grass everything is in place for ranch and cattle operations, including 15 tanks, paddocks, a corral, covered turn-out pens, a barn, an arena and working pens and chutes.
There is also an updated Spanish Ranch-style home with four bedrooms and four and a half baths. The 4,359-square-foot home also has an inviting pool and a spa where one can relax and enjoy unparalleled views down the valley.
The views of the mountains and valleys in this diverse topography can be enjoyed from several vantage points. There is a Saltillo-tile patio on the back of the house, and for a closer look an observation deck stands above a sloping valley.
The property, which is pipe and cross fenced, is great for hunting and wildlife management. Miles of interior ranch roads bisect the property, and a covered carport will house four vehicles. In addition to the adobe-style main house, there is housing for a foreman and ranch hands.
