An Inside Look at a True Equestrian Texas Wonderland — This $15.9 Million Estate is a Stunning Retreat For Horses and Humans Alike

72 Acres in Bartonville and a Home on the Range All Your Own

BY // 11.09.21

One of the more impressive equestrian estates in all of Texas just hit the market with a $15.9 million asking price. The modern main house was built in 2020, capping off a 72-acre showplace, complete with 24 oversized stalls and both indoor and outdoor arenas for horses. The home was designed to capture the expansive outdoor views.

The site plan was intentional ― even the bathtub is positioned so there is a view to watch the Texas storms roll in. Home on the range never looked this good.

Located in Bartonville, the estate is only a short drive from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (26 minutes) or Alliance Airport (19 minutes), with shopping and restaurants easily accessed in Fort Worth’s Alliance and Trophy Club. Roanoke and Denton are also nearby.

The meandering, country setting at 1200 Rockgate Road leads to a gated entry, where the main house is situated to take full advantage of the stunning scenery. There are panoramic windows all over the home. Several rooms feature pond views. There are four ponds on the estate in all.

Yes, this is a true country estate. The 8,079 square-foot home was built with modern families in mind, with four bedrooms, four full-bathrooms and one-half bathroom.

The great room’s linear fireplace is centrally located, framed by a three-sided wall of windows, opening the home to the outdoors in a breathtaking way. The kitchen is on the opposite side, with its massive central island and exotic granite slabs and farm style sink. A wooden extension to the island adds to counter seating built in along the side wall with views to the wet area beyond.

A covered outdoor patio expands the living area outside with a pool in a fenced backyard. The property is lush and green, dotted with glorious oak trees and meadows for grazing cattle. There is also an oversized three-car garage and workshop.

Additionally, 20 acres of the property are largely untouched. They are currently being used for beekeeping, producing local jars of honey. Then there are the grounds to ride around, including those four ponds, a custom built barn and world-class equestrian facilities.
