Escape Ebola With This: A Dang 4200 Square Foot Barndominium With Concrete Floors You Can Bleach

Share News:


Don’t know about you, but I’m thinking the ‘burbs and the boonies are looking mighty fine right about now. No worries of Ebola out there in the country, right?


(Maybe. Recall you can only get it from the body fluids of an infected person. Or monkeys.)

But this place caught our eye at 3136 Jordan Valley Road, off Route 20 southwest of town near Dowdy Ferry Road. I have always liked that street name, by the way. We think that concrete floors might be the new hot flooring item because you can bleach them, and then this barndominium is just a gas. It holds all the SUV’s, tractors and even a few playground items! When the weather’s bad, this is like a big huge enclosed patio that you can drive in and out of. I have seen these in Midland, and apparently they are super popular in country living. And how great would this be for the dogs when their paws are muddy?

Plus if you had to be quarantined, well, get thee to a ranch!




This spread comes with  34+ acres, a natural spring-fed pond stocked with bass, perch & catfish. The main house was custom built in 2006 and has more than 4200 square feet.

But the Barndominium! Two huge bays for your RV, SUV or boat storage, plus carport and garage. It’s like the cars can have a party!




The kitchen has an island, gas cook-top, large pantry, and plenty of cabinet space. The floor plan is open with sweeping views of the water. The master is on the first floor with a great spa bath and enormous walk-in closet. The guest room is also on the first floor with a private full-sized bath. Nice laundry room. The third bedroom is upstairs with a game room with a viewing window, full bath and more storage — this sounds like it could be two bedrooms maybe, or a bunkhouse. Somewhere there is an office. Then there is an updated guest house of 1610 square feet, which sits at the front of the property, watch-dog like.

There is a barn and extra storage building, and the property is completely fenced for security. Listed with Teri Gumm of Ebby Halliday, asking $1,150,000. Plus won’t this be near the New Horse park?

Fifteen minute drive from downtown Dallas. Hell, I want a Barndominium in Preston Hollow!
