Enjoy living in the country in a beautiful hilltop home on 80 acres, with outstanding views of the countryside. This beautiful custom 4 bedroom split-level home was built in 1990 by the current owner with the climate and environment in mind.
Location: This property is conveniently located between IH 35E and IH 35W, with the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex only 50 minutes away. Live in the country and work in the city!
Improvements: The open floor plan of this two-story home is ideal for entertaining with the great room, including fireplace and wet bar, opening to the dining room and kitchen. The kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a center island, overlooks the outdoor balcony. A spacious master suite, located on the main level with the living area, includes a sitting area, spa like bath and screened in sun porch for watching the sunrise. An adjacent room could be used as an office or nursery. Downstairs on the lower level are three bedrooms, a media room, pottery studio that could be converted to a fifth bedroom and a greenhouse attached to the east side of the house complete with running water and built-in drain. Two large metal equipment barns are located on the north edge of the property and a stocked one acre pond with fishing dock is located just a short walk from the house.
Energy Efficient: Positioned so that the oversized two-car garage and breezeway act as a buffer, from the sun and wind. Additionally the home was built into the side of the hill providing maximum insulation on the lower level and a first floor exercise room that doubles as a storm shelter. The roof was designed for solar panels to be installed and currently two panels provide energy for the solar water heater. French drains direct the runoff water from the house and yard, out to the fields and three young bald cypress trees.
Utilities: There is one active 500 water well which supplies all of the water for the house and the landscape irrigation, and an anaerobic septic system on the property.
Terrain: This 80 acre tract of land in the western portion of Ellis County is level to rolling. Approximately 55 acres are in hay production, 24 acres are native grasses and the pond covers one acre.
