While we’re already hot on 505 Ranch Club at Cedar Creek Lake, you can find out why this community provides the very best of lake living this Saturday: stay tuned.

56 private, waterfront home sites meander along the lake, dotting a 505-acre shared ownership ranch. (Insiders say the total house population may only top 40 or less, as buyers snap up more acreage per purchase.) And if you are not familiar with the shared ownership ranch concept, well get ready. City Slickers, you’ve met your nirvana. Enjoy the attributes of living on a ranch with zero work. Suzanne Warner of Compass, marketing the property, has sold many vacation homes to buyers on Cedar Creek Lake as well as local ranches. She says 505 Ranch Club buyers are looking for more than just a place to go on the weekend and vacations.

“They don’t want to just have a lake house, or a ranch, they want to have the lifestyle,” says Suzanne. “And the 505 offers you both the fun of living on the lake with a full ranch at your disposal.”

And now, a new offering for the future is a private polo and equestrian facility that will provide homeowners with exciting events, membership programs, riding lessons, polo lessons, and boarding and stabling opportunities. And all so close to Dallas.

In recent vacation home surveys from the National Association of Realtors, buyers say the ideal vacation home is located within a two hour drive of their primary residence.

“The drive to the 505 Ranch Club is not stressful drive at all,” says Suzanne. “In fact, it’s downright peaceful. It’s just enough time to make a few calls and wrap up the hustle.”
