Open July 21st from 2:00-4:00 PM!!  Bring boots to explore the woods,  and fishing poles if you wish!

Cool it, Waco. We’ve got a new Texas hot spot. Y’all just wait ’till Chip and Joanna hit Royse City. Royse City is near Dallas, and quickly becoming the hottest new Texas community to find your pastoral dream home.
 
Just 32 miles east of Dallas, Royse City is a growing area experiencing a spike in new construction, gaining new residential development, all less than 10 miles from Rockwall. The setting is way prettier than Waco: natural beauty abounds with hundreds of post oak trees, pretty ponds, plus that Sandy loam soil which is so great for horses, cattle, and livestock. The deer and the wild turkey play right outside your front door, and there are so many fish in the tank they are jumping out of the water, begging to be caught. You can even hunt down wild pigs, shoot guns, and no one will protest. That is why we want you to stop, breathe, and consider this area as home.
 
You know what else folks love about this area? It’s right off Interstate 30 and NO CITY TAXES!
 
This property at 3767 County Road 2512 is an authentic farmhouse completely redone with modern conveniences. You get the Modern Farmhouse vibe, but retain tons of character in a well done, high quality make-over. Kind of reminds you of a barn-dominium with an agricultural exemption. Asking price: $645,000.

Why consider renovating an old house in Corsicana?

The small town off of Interstate 45 between Dallas and Waco is familiar to some Dallasites, if only for the stigma-defying fruitcake at its Collin Street Bakery.  But recently, Corsicana has been enjoying quite a different sort of buzz — a downtown art center, 100 West, or 100W, as it is known, is calling attention to the community, and in a good way. An artist and writer’s residency program offers space and support for promising creatives. Gallery space is springing up. Shops and restaurants are being cultivated in the historic downtown.

Corsicana was a thriving metropolis in oil boom years of the early 1900s. Wealthy residents built lovely houses. Many still exist and are good prospects for renovation. It’s a chance to get in on the ground floor of the promising renaissance of a small town. See an example of a house which would make a lovely bed and breakfast, or second home under an hour away from Dallas-Fort Worth. Read more on SecondShelters.com now.

If you like the idea of having a home on the range but can’t imagine living in the middle of nowhere, you might take a look at Corsicana. The first oil boom town in Texas, it was founded in 1848 and by the early 1900s it was one of the top 10 cities in the nation with the most millionaires. It’s stuck to its small-town roots ever since.

Sometimes when those listings sound too good to be true, they really are! I don’t know which room description made me laugh hardest… maybe the mother in law house… Talk about a fixer-upper… you’d need uppers 24/7 to get this place in shape!
