It’s like the ultimate Texas fantasy — the combination of horses in the yard, a stable out back and a country club within a mere gallop, all in a safely gated community tucked into the tree-shrouded countryside near Tomball. The equestrian community of Willowcreek Ranch is where we find this custom home built on a two-acre homesite with a barn and, yes, horses.
While this one is not for sale, it represents what is being done in the 720-acre enclave that has room for 250 homesites and boasts a 50-acre lake, full equestrian facilities, more than seven miles of riding trails, a boat house, fitness center, parks and open space.
For the record, the homesites range from one to seven acres with custom home prices starting at $800,000 and soaring as high as your imagination and bank account will allow.

Mahogany stained wood arches and window and door frames dramatically play against the white walls throughout the vast dwelling.
The homeowners, she an interior decorator and he a businessman, were among the first to build in the retreat and to take advantage of the horse-friendly atmosphere as well as the surroundings including the enviable hiking/riding trails through wooded terrain.
With two fenced acres, the owners enjoy luxurious views of the surroundings, much of it savored from the back terrace where a see-through fireplace provides two entertaining areas complete with ceiling fans, flat screen TV and even a swing sofa.
Developer of the ranch is Caldwell Communities, which includes in its portfolio Towne Lake just west of Highway 290 off of Barker Cypress Road, Copper Bend at Indian Trails in the Cypress area, and Rock Creek, also near Cypress.
