Rocky Creek Ranch is a sprawling neighborhood filled with rolling hills, mature trees, and wonderful vistas in southwest Fort Worth. Homesites range in size from 10 to over 35 acres. If you are looking for an area that has a look and feel of the Texas Hill Country but is only 20 minutes from downtown Fort Worth, Rocky Creek Ranch is exactly the spot.

Mustang Creek is part of Rocky Creek Ranch

Residents within the community not only have plenty of space to build custom homes, but also enjoy access to Mustang Creek and Benbrook Lake for fishing, miles and miles of biking trails, undulating terrain for hiking, and even horseback riding opportunities.

One unique quality of this rural ranch is that homeowners have every opportunity to use each homesite to its fullest potential when designing their homes. As the land isn’t flat and boring, and neither are the homes.

You wouldn’t think this was a 4,820 ft. home built in 2017

In 2017, the Fort Worth-based firm Urban Bobcat Architects took a wonderful 15-acre parcel and placed a historic-looking hill country home into the side of a steep hill. What appears to be a quaint single-story home is certainly much more.

Delightfully Deceiving From First Glance

At first glance, the home at 10700 W. Rocky Creek Road appears to be an old settler’s home. With its stone facade, deep porches, and metal roof, it absolutely appears to be an old cabin that has been sitting there for decades.

The inviting front porch feels like it has many stories to share

In reality, the home totals 4,820 square feet with three bedrooms and four full plus two half bathrooms. It’s a newer, energy-efficient architectural marvel.

Instead of the traditional wood-frame construction, the home is built with foam-core panels called SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels). Because the home is built into the side of a hill, there is a massive concrete foundation that also doubles the size of the home and creates a walk-out basement and living areas.

While the home is very green, it certainly is not without many luxuries

Deep eaves, a rain catchment system, and other energy-efficient technologies are used to give this home a high green energy rating.

No expense is spared in the design and finish of this home

How About a Swim?

Over the years, your Tarrant County Tuesday columnist has encountered our fair share of swimming pools. We’ve pretty much seen them all — big, small, simple, elaborate — but we’ve never seen a walk-out swimming pool on the second floor!

From the back of the home you can see the walk-out basement and to the left is the pool

Because of how the home is situated into a hillside, there is a large living area under the home that is literally carved into the hill.

From the master suite is access to the pool as well as views of trees, creeks and lakes

From the main level master suite, simply glide open the doors and jump into your own private swimming pool!

The pool is directly off the master suite, above the finish floor and completely shaded

This home is truly one-of-a-kind. The unique and creative way the home is situated into the hillside, the rustic design of the exterior and modern energy features make 10700 W. Rocky Creek Road a perfect mix of the past, present and future with beautiful views.
