This week’s Tarrant County Tuesday will once again take us west to Parker County.  Head out on Interstate 20 and go past Aledo, Hudson Oaks, and Weatherford until you come to the unincorporated city of Brock, Texas.  That is where the Running Horse Ranch can be found only 15 miles south.

Wide Open Spaces

In the hit song, “What I Like About Texas,” by Gary P. Nunn, one of the first lines about Texas is, “the wide open spaces.”

Running Horse Ranch has 57 acres of trees, pasture, and the Brazos River — plenty to like about Texas.

If that resonates with you, then the Running Horse Ranch is calling your name.  Located at 851 Red Bank Road, this 57-acre sprawling ranch features rivers, pastures, farm land, fishing holes, and views as far as the eyes can see.

All of this beauty and serenity less than an hour from Downtown Fort Worth.  Not a bad commute at all.

The Main House

Built in 1988 but totally renovated in 2008, the 3,497 ft. home fits the Running Horse Ranch perfectly

Found on the property is a single-story home of 3,497 square feet with three bedrooms and three and one-half bathrooms.  Every bedroom has its own en suite bathroom.  Designed in a Spanish Colonial vein, the home was completely taken to the studs and revived in 2008 with the utmost care.

The main living room is the total congregating room.  Tall beamed ceilings with large windows to see the Brazos River

The family room is perfect spot to hang out on sweltering Texas summer days

Reclaimed Materials

Materials from all over the world were shipped in to adorn the dwelling.  Tile throughout the home were reclaimed from Portugal and Spain.  The fireplace pillars are from France and are to be from the late 17th century!

Throughout the home are colorful tiles and finishes that give the home an authentic, rustic look-and-feel

When It’s Not 100-Plus Degrees Outside

If ever there was a patio made for rocking chairs, it’s at the Running Horse Ranch.

Taking advantage of the property — wonderful views and scenery — the home has spacious porches and patios.  Imagine the Texas sky on dark nights with nothing but moon and stars shining brightly as you relax on your covered porch or patio.

Running Horse Ranch at 851 Red Bank Road is also located in the heavily praised Brock Independent School District.  As private schools become more and more expensive and parents want smaller classrooms and solid teaching, districts like Brock ISD are becoming very popular.

The kitchen features Viking and Subzero appliances – and great Texas views

Check out this slice of Texas at Running Horse Ranch.  The property is listed by Jo Ann Royer of Williams Trew Real Estate and is listed for $1.65 million.  Giddy-up!
