This could be your Green Acres fantasy come true. With 40 acres of “land spreading out so far and wide,” escape to quant La Rue in East Texas for this beautifully-updated three-bedroom home featuring views of your own private lake and green pastures. This is the place to be.

The 2,621-square-foot brick home, built in 1975 and recently renovated, offers all the modern amenities you’d expect of a North Dallas home with none of the traffic and big city life. It features three bedrooms and an office that could become a fourth bedroom, two baths, and one half bath.

The kitchen features granite countertops, tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances including gas cooktop, double oven, and built-in microwave smartly nestled into the island. Pendant lights hang over the island and sink, as well as a conveniently-placed ceiling fan in case any of your dinner entrees end up too well done.

Retreat to the second living area featuring a wall of built-in display shelves, a granite countertop as a workstation, and lots of cabinet space. A French door gives access to the outdoor living space with pergola and firepit. There you can admire the beautiful 3.5 acre lake stocked with bass and catfish. Waterfowl and other wildlife provide your own nature sanctuary.
