If you’ve ever driven on East Texas backroads, you know there are a few customs to follow. Number one, give a friendly wave to local traffic, especially cowboy hat-wearing gentlemen driving old pickup trucks. Number two, just know that Google Maps probably won’t help you here, and that’s certainly the case for getting to this east Texas luxury lake home we’re featuring today on CandysDirt.com. Trust us, the two hour trip out of Dallas is worth it for this 4,858-sq-ft lodge-style lakefront property that’s up for auction by Elite Auctions later this month.

OPEN HOUSE PREVIEW | 1-4 p.m., Nov. 10-11. The auction takes place 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, with final preview on Friday, Nov. 16. Visit EliteAuctions.com/109-Pennys-Path for pre-registration instructions and driving directions.

You’ll find peaceful landscape at 109 Penny’s Path near Marshall, Texas, where this lodge-style home is situated on a two-lot property totaling 2.84-acres. The auction lot includes this five-bedroom, five-and-half-bath home, nearly three acres of lakefront property, two-boat, covered slip dock on the water, and another lot that’s open for development or sale. Maybe it’s time to build that family compound at the lake!

With the heat of summer bearing down upon us, it’s time to start thinking about heading to the lake as often as possible. Land’s End, a gated community on trophy bass fishing heaven Lake Fork, is located an hour and a half east of Dallas and adjacent the Links of Lake Fork, an 18-hole championship golf course.

We have a beautiful new Spanish style listing located there to share with you, complete with four bedrooms, two kitchens, lots of space for entertaining, a separate casita, and fabulous views. Named El Regalo, meaning “the gift” in Spanish, it offers all the amenities you could wish for, in tranquil surrounds.
