Sometimes even the big city folk want to roll up their jeans and go fishing in the backyard pond – as long as they can return to a traditional home with luxurious amenities in close proximity to shops and restaurants.

Are there actually fish in the pond? Maybe not.

Does it really matter? Definitely not. You’d have your own pond – and there’s no homeowners association to tell you what you can do with it.


Tonight, a very special treat: get yourself over to Ebby Halliday’s Little White House on Northwest Highway at Preston, get yourself on a party bus, and head east to beautiful Rockwall. You will be fed by The Hamburger man, sip Mimosas and enter a raffle to win some really great prizes. And it all happens at this beautiful house, 662 Chisholm Ridge Drive.

We have told you about  662 Chisholm Ridge Dr. , a stunner that sits on 4.37 acres  in a tight-knit neighborhood in Rockwall. You get so much more for your money when you venture out of Dallas County:  the main house (yes, there are more than one) is over 5,000 square feet and features a wonderful floor plan for entertaining, relaxing, beautiful hand-scraped hardwood floors, and a wine grotto. The property has a whopping seven bedrooms, six full bathrooms, two half baths, a study, four living areas, and three dining areas all on two stories. Practically still smells new, the house was built in 2012.
