Equestrian Retreat on the Red River
June 21st, 2016 | by Michelle Eastridge
The Red River Estate at 1267 Gun Club Road in Denison sits on about 29 acres of private paradise overlooking the banks of the Red River in Grayson County.
Located less than 1.5 hours from downtown Dallas, this property is ideal for year-round living or a weekend getaway. The combination of the wooded terrain and adjacent river provide an abundance of recreational activities as well as peaceful tranquility.
Once you arrive through the gated entrance, you’ll follow the paved road through the tall hardwoods to the 3,940-square-foot, updated home with a large cantilever deck that protrudes out over the river.
Impressive equestrian facilities as well as a multitude of top-notch improvements are found throughout the property.
Red River Estate is at the end of Gun Club Road, about 75 miles north of Dallas off of US 75 and only four miles from quaint downtown Denison. The majority of the forest on this property is typical of the Cross Timbers region, with very large hardwoods, including some pecan trees, scattered throughout the lower portion.
The property consists of mostly sandy, loamy and clay soils. Red River Estate has approximately 80 feet of topographical change that slopes from southern portion of the property to the river.
The timber portion of Red River Estate provides cover for large deer and hogs traveling down and across the river corridor. The river attracts waterfowl from the surrounding areas. Two feeders and blinds are set up on the property but it does not receive intense hunting pressure.
This property revolves around the impressive Red River. The recently refurbished scenic deck protruding out from the back of the residence looks directly across to Oklahoma and sets up perfectly for relaxing around the outdoor firepit.
The property includes a private boat launch into the river allowing easy access to fishing for a number of different species or bow fishing for alligator gar.
The residence has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, with scenic views from the front and the back of the home. There is also an attached two car garage with an apartment loft and bath above it.
Newly painted pipe fencing is used throughout the property. The 2,880-square-foot, six-stall equestrian barn includes a tack room, medicine room and bathroom. Loafing sheds, paddocks and a hot walker round are located nearby.
A newly finished open-air riding arena is ready to be broken in. There is a metal barn with bay doors and ample storage.
The property also comes with access to a nearby river cabin used as a gathering area by some of the neighbors. Minerals: Please consult with broker regarding minerals
