RockwallIf you’ve been in the real estate business long enough, you can plumb run out of superlatives. So when a Realtor uses words like “dreamy” and “happy place” to describe her listing, you sit up and pay attention, which is why we’re headed to Rockwall to see a 95-acre family estate.

“My clients are headed back to The Bubble after a long hiatus on the most secluded and dreamy piece of property, high on a hill, deep in a forest, in Rockwall,” listing agent Erin McClung with Allie Beth Allman and Associates told us. “The perfect setting to raise two boys, now grown and flown, they found their happy place amidst the ponds, trails, and wild birds (thank the birds for the low taxes) in a home that they completely made their own.”
