This 1,600 acre Texas ranch is within 30 minutes from Downtown Dallas and features one of the great architectural masterpieces, a stone mansion with approx. 20,000 sq. ft. of museum quality construction. This stone mansion was designed and built by one of the world’s top entrepreneurs for his own personal country home. A double gated entry offers the utmost in privacy and security.
