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.

Contemporary Golf Course Home In Bent Tree Royal Sweeps Our Dallas Open Houses | CandysDirt.com

I became more familiar with the Bent Tree Royal neighborhood up north of Bent Tree Country Club when I was running for Dallas City Council last spring. The area is amazing, and I instantly knew the real estate would be worth writing home about if a home ever became available there.

And it finally did! 17310 Club Hill Drive sports the best of what this neighborhood is all about. Sleek contemporary homes built into a bluff, many with updates, most facing the golf course greens. But the maintenance is practically zip, save for bushes and a few trees. 

To make it even better, Bent Tree Royal is tucked away between two creeks, with winding streets and TONS of mature trees. It is nesteled between Preston Road and the Dallas North Tollway off Westgrove, which at one point sounded oh so far north. 

But now, with all happening in Plano and at Legacy, this area is a most perfect location to jump north OR south. DFW is a hop skip jump off George W. Bush, and The Star is just up the Tollway.

Homes RARELY come available up here, because the location and bones are so great.
