There are many reasons to raise horses. Folks race and breed these beautiful animals, while horseback riding is one of the best activities for anyone from the most athletic to the disabled. It gets one outdoors, doing something physical, and working with a powerful horse is a thrill.
Just 35 minutes north of Dallas/Fort Worth on Interstate Highway 35 is one of the nation's best horse-breeding regions. There a 156-acre horse farm is found that offers the chance to indulge one's passion for horses.
The first-class, Denton County horse farm has a three-bedroom, custom-built home that is the perfect weekend getaway, full-time residence or corporate retreat. Constructed of elegant Austin stone, the 4,590-square-foot home at 4021 Corbin Road has a pool and cabana.
For the horses there are three large barns, a six-stall mare barn, a four-stall stud barn and a 14-stall metal barn.
This extraordinary farm is being offered by Brenda Moerschell and Julie Gilbert for $3,395,000.
Enter the property through a stone and double-iron gate beneath a flagpole that flies the American and Texas flags. Delight at the statue of a mare with her foal in front of the home.
Inside the two-story home are large rooms designed for entertaining. The main room has a stone fireplace, matching stone columns and a wood-beamed, vaulted ceiling.
A covered, enclosed patio offers year-round enjoyment. Step from the house through stone columns to the large pool and cabana.
In addition, a manager’s home and other housing are available for staff.
Two gas wells are on the property. Mineral rights are negotiable.
