The Oaks is a fabulous 5,000 sq. ft. historic plantation country home, built in 1850, that sits on 25 wooded acres, just 45 minutes south of downtown Dallas off I-45 in Chatfield, Texas. The house is the backdrop for renowned designer, Carolyn Westbrook and her bestselling interior design/lifestyle books that have released globally. The property could also be used for hosting photo and film location shoots, as well as a fabulous event venue for weddings and other special events.
The main house sits on 2 fenced and landscaped acres, surrounded by an additional 23 acres of both wooded and fertile pasture land. There is a tank on the 23 acres which makes it ideal for agriculture, hunting and fishing.
The plantation home features 5 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 half baths, forty-foot hallways, both upstairs and downstairs, library, living rooms, formal dining room, eat-in kitchen, and sunroom. The home has been lovingly restored with updated electrical, plumbing, and a complete renovation.

The home features original hardwood floors, along with 8 original fireplaces. The interior also features vintage crown moldings, baseboards, and hand hewn original doors.
The grounds feature studio/guest cottages, one of which was photographed for the cover of the best-selling book, Where Women Create. In addition, one can find a charming wooden playhouse, the original hen house, an 1800s log cabin, and a huge log barn that is approx. 4,000 sq. ft. This property must be seen to be appreciated.
