If peace and quiet lake living is your jam for the Fourth – 1901 Park Street is for you!

Let’s face it, parades and clowns aren’t everyone’s ideal way to spend the Fourth of July holiday.  If you are more of a “relax and enjoy the lap, lap, lapping of the lake” type, then I have the property for you!

Azle, Texas and Eagle Mountain Lake

Azle? Where is Azle?  Is that in Tarrant County?  Does it qualify for our Bonus Tarrant County Tuesday post? Actually yes, Azle, is a bedroom community of Fort Worth – one of the best-kept secrets that is starting to get out – about 17 miles northwest of Cowtown.

Lake living at its finest

Home, pool, and lake — any questions?

The town of around 13,000 residents is partially in Tarrant County as well as Parker County — so it totally counts to be highlighted in our Fourth of July Bonus Tarrant County Tuesday

Eagle Mountain Lake Marina just can’t catch a break, it seems. The Fort Worth marina, which leases boat slips to owners in North Texas, has sustained several storms and one fire only to be completely wrecked during high winds last night. 

The owner and operator of Eagle Mountain Lake Marina, Suntex Marina Investors, has closed the marina until further notice.

“We have been able to access the docks and are glad to report a considerable amount of boats are undamaged and thankfully there has been no loss of life,” said Linda Kennedy, general manager, Eagle Mountain Marina.

Find Exclusive Lakeside Living Just 1.5 Hours from DFW at the Links of Lake Athens | CandysDirt.com

An hour and 15 minutes east of Dallas, I’ve found a private waterfront golf resort on one of the most pristine lakes in Texas. Three parcels at the Links of Lake Athens have hit the market, offering exclusive, one-of-a-kind living for the right buyer or buyers. 

The Links of Lake Athens is a 52-acre, gated development subdivided into five separate parcels. Ownership of three of the parcels is being offered exclusively by Ashley and Malcolm Ross of The Ross Group at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. The price for all three is $7.5 million, and includes a 7,200-square-foot, seven-bedroom home, plus two guest houses. The three parcels can also be purchased individually (details below). 

What’s so wonderful about the Links of Lake Athens? Privacy tops the list. This is the place you can get away from it all and enjoy total relaxation and peace. Amenities are another thing owners enjoy: think 2,500 feet of lake frontage, an eight-stable equestrian center, two grass tennis courts, and a lush four-hole golf course that plays like an 18-hole, par-72 course and practice area.

“The Links at Lake Athens is for the person or family who seek privacy, exclusivity, and is passionate about the outdoors,” said Malcolm Ross. “The gated property offers unparalleled lakefront views, an incredible golf course with practice area, stables, water sports, and so much more.” 

I’ve got a video and photos after the jump — so beautiful!
