Anyone who can work from home and live in the country, pay attention: I have found your paradise! Chefs and gourmands, go from ground to garnish in five minutes. This is truly one of the most amazing properties I have ever seen, and it is just an hour east of Dallas on I-20. There are so many “firsts” and innovative design touches in this compound, you do feel like you are in the heart of Preston Hollow but have just kind of helicoptered over the traffic.
Well, you could very well have: there is a helicopter pad and even a fuel tank, so you won’t run out of gas.
Located near the quaint town of Canton, county seat of Van Zandt County, home to the famous “First Monday Trades Days” flea market, you are in God’s green acres out here with trees, water, rolling hills and the freshest air you can find. And even better, you can grow your own food! Top notch medical facilities and equally excellent schools are available nearby. At night, you hear no sirens or tires screeching — just birds and the jack rabbits scurrying through the grass. Rather than watch traffic jams on the mixmaster with a glass of wine while you cough cough on polluted air, you can count the bats flying over the house from the back porch. Like a natural Mosquito Mist, these guys eat the mosquitoes and keep them off of people. Canton has a country club with golf course, a new Splash Kingdom, not a $3.5 billion Dreamvision vision, no Starbucks but Val’s Italian in town. Recreational lakes are thirty minutes away — Tawakoni, Cedar Creek and Lake Palestine.
Of course, why would you drive there when you have your own lake?
Why would you even leave this pastoral heaven except to go to church and shopping? Like I said, if you can work from home even two days a week, listen up.
