I’ve found the perfect antidote to the stress of city living, and it’s just 30 minutes from downtown Dallas!

The lakefront property at 1 Candlelite Trail in Heath sits on the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard. On its more than 13 acres, you’ll find two fully stocked ponds, plenty of room for horses, a barn, and 5,500 fully irrigated trees of both native Texas and fruit varieties. Total paradise!

There rural amenities are complemented by the grandeur of the house, which has all the luxury of a Preston Hollow build. This is a Tuscan-style, 9,323-square-foot residence with five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, three half baths, outdoor living and dining, and a separate guest house. Think soaring ceilings and the finest finishes, luxe kitchen and room after room of well-appointed, thoughtful spaces.

I’m not the only one swooning over this Heath property — it’s been featured on two TV shows!

“It’s so private and it looks like the grounds of the Dallas Arboretum'” said Dee Evans, who has listed the property with the Dee Evans Group of Ebby Halliday Realtors. “The lakefront is unbelievable — 2,316 feet of shoreline — and there are ponds and bridges…it’s just amazing, like a total paradise away from the city.”

I couldn’t agree more. Let’s take a tour of this Heath estate!

Westover Hills, Texas is located in the western portion of Tarrant County. The city is very small, coming in at only 0.7 square miles. Westover Hills has consistently been named as one of the wealthiest communities in Texas per capita income and the 10th or 12th highest income place in the U.S. since 2000! The median income for a Westover Hills household is well over $200,000, no matter the price of oil. The community is a township with its own police, fire department and city hall, but is located in the Fort Worth Independent School District. Most children here attend several private schools.

Westover Hills has many luxurious homes and a million would be just the starting price. Westover Hills, Westover and Rivercrest form the old premiere FW neighborhoods. You cannot really compare Westover Hills to any other community in North Texas — the lots are huge, spacious and rolling. When you give your address as being in Westover Hills, expect a second or deep third glance.
