Close to Fort Worth and in the Aledo school district is one of the most luxurious and versatile properties I’ve ever seen, Kipling Lear Farm. In addition to three incredible residences and a pool house, there’s a beautifully appointed 20-stall barn and covered arena with an enclosed viewing gallery and catering kitchen for entertaining.  

Previously the home of champion race horses and Iberian dressage horses, the 135-acre working farm is ideal for horses of any discipline and their owners who want to ride in style. The grassy fields and pastures slope gently toward the banks of the South Bear Creek, and wooded areas are full of mature pecan and century-old oak trees. White tail deer, wild turkey, foxes, quail, owls, and other birds call the farm home, too. This property is a rare opportunity to enjoy an oasis of natural beauty just 30 miles from Fort Worth. 

“Kipling Lear Farm was purchased by the current owners in 2006, who embarked on an extensive remodel of the existing buildings, as well as adding new ones, between 2009 and 2016,” said listing agent Martha Williams with Williams Trew. “This is country living at its finest, with native wildlife, woodlands, an orchard, and a main house with a genteel and welcoming front porch from which you can enjoy the views.” 

Taking full advantage of the surrounding views, the home has multiple outdoor living spaces, like the back of the home with a kitchen patio, courtyard, outdoor fireplace, and flagstone steps leading to a creekside fire pit below. That is living! And it’s just one small example of the thoughtful, gracious spaces throughout Kipling Lear Farm.
