SS Dutch Ranch

The Dutch Colonial estate has a stone gated entry that leads to the 10,623 sq. foot home overlooking a stocked 13-acre lake and 47 gorgeous acres.  The 5 bedroom, 5 bath home has 6 living areas and 7 dining areas for masterful entertaining for small or large groups looks as though it has been cut from the pages of Town and Country Magazine.

The chefs kitchen is very large and would accommodate family or friend gatherings easily.  Along with the vastness of the high ceilings and timber frames, stone fireplaces, brick and wooden floors, and large covered porches, the home is warm, welcoming, and relaxing much like a lodge on the East Coast.  In fact, the timber frames actually came from New England and helped support the structure when the home was built in 2002.

This property is exceptional in its current state and offers country living and recreational opportunities very close to the modern amenities of Sulphur Springs. Beyond its current use there is value in commercial usage as a special events venue, equestrian center, retreat center or residential development.

The exterior is just as appealing from the stone and silo appointments, concrete circular drive, to the pool with the pergola covered lounging area. A large covered 3 bay parking structure provides ample parking and additional storage area.

The home sits on 47.31 acres that includes a 13-acre lake stocked with largemouth bass and catfish along with another 2-acre lake. There is also another vintage dwelling that was moved in on site to be converted to a party house or simply a guest cottage.

A small barn with concrete floors sits close to the main house and would be ideal for small livestock or stables. Currently, owners run 12 head of cattle and there is a small working pen.

Development Potential: With over 2200 feet of frontage along Park Springs Rd/CR 2301 and close proximity to modern amenities this property is ideal for residential development. There are certainly no other developments in the area with their own 13-acre lake to provide for a community focal point. Additionally, there is a 6-inch water line running along the road frontage for water access.

Location: Located just south of Sulphur Springs, Texas along Park Springs Rd/CR 2301 and only 70 miles from Dallas off of I-30.  This town of 17,000 is the home to this wonderful property that can be utilized in many formats and uses.

Water: Water is provided by a local Co-Op and there is a 6-inch City Water line running along CR 2301 that could be utilized as well. The property has 2 stocked lakes, one 13 acres and the other roughly 2 acre in size. The home is serviced by an aerobic septic system.

Land: Primarily open gently rolling sandy loam pastures surrounding the 2 lakes. Coastal Bermuda has been planted for livestock. The property is currently under Agricultural Valuation and is supporting around 10-head of cattle. The barbwire fencing is good.

House Details: The 10,623 sq. ft. home was originally built in 2002. There are 7 dining area, 7 fire places, 6 living areas, 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, a pool with a pergola covered lounging area, workout room and a sound system wired throughout the home. The commercial grade kitchen is fully equipped with a Viking 6 burner/griddle gas cooktop, double oven, convection oven, Viking vent hood, built-in ice maker, water faucet at stove, huge marble topped island with sink, large main sink, and we could go on and on. This home was built right, using only high-end materials, appliances and hardware. Its not a stretch to say it looks as if it leapt off the pages of Town and Country Magazine!
