The home on Quarter Oak Ranch – wait til you see the horse stalls (photos: Norman & Young)

I’m the first to admit that I don’t know much about horses.  While I’m sure there is a bowtie-wearing cowboy out there somewhere, it’s not this bowtie Realtor.

However, when I heard about the Quarter Oak Ranch in Gainesville, Texas, I had to tell you about it.  Yes, yes, Cooke County is not quite within the boundaries of Tarrant County, but allow me some creative license.

Quarter Oak Ranch has it all

87 acres, 2 ponds, 1 heated pool, 5,800 ft. home, 64 horse stalls…quite a ranch!

The Quarter Oak Ranch

Gainesville is approximately an hour and a half from Fort Worth.  This Texas town of around 16,000 residents is known by many as being located in the heart of the Texas horse country.

Why is that?  It is conveniently located midway between two large destinations for horse shows and events (Fort Worth and Oklahoma City) and that the sandy loam soil is very friendly to horsey feet … we call those hooves in the horse biz.

The 87-acre estate that makes up the Quarter Oak Ranch is found at the end of a private road and yet five to ten minutes from “downtown” Gainesville and Interstate 35.
