Maybe it’s because my butt is already sore from horseback riding, but I am obsessed, I mean OBSESSED with Kirk’s Rockin’ K Ranch in Celina, just a few miles north of Deion Sander’s place on Preston Road in Prosper. This 314 acre elite horse breeding property is amazing, overloaded, sexy, steroidal, fabulous, and honestly one of the most God-fearin’ TEXAN ranches I have ever seen. This is horse heaven with a capital H. I am guessing that Kelcy Warren might be looking at this ranch for ideas on what he is building in the Hill Country.

Just got off the phone with West, Texas Realtor Pat Grimm, of Slovak Realty, who tells me he has lived in West all his life. The town’s main business is farm and ranching, the town’s population about 2800. West was founded about 1882 around the KATY railroad, and a lot of Czech and German settlers nestled down to farm and ranch, much like Fredericksburg. The town is named after a major landowner, Thomas West. This from the town’s Chamber of Commerce

Is there a better way to honor the original bad boy of Dallas than to don a Stetson and some Lucchese boots while showing some of the city’s best properties tomorrow? I couldn’t think of one, either.

That’s why, I guess the folks promoting this nice little ranch in Van Alystyne, Texas put this guitar crooner on the website for the ranch. Like, front and center. Five bedrooms, four and a half baths, this place is billed as 30 acres of a horse rancher’s paradise with an executive home, pool, hot tub, riding arena, stables, bunk house, and will only set you back $899,995.

This place was built to be shown off. If you need convincing of this fact, I point you to the unbelievable second-floor bar and billiard at 12780 Hilltop in Argyle. It’s like Boston’s famous Bull and Finch Pub (Cheers, if you watch the TV show) without the weird smell and surly barmaids.

We all know Dallas is buggy. Let’s face it, you move to a warmer climate, you get bugs. When I grew up in Chicago we had millipedes and spiders in summer months, but not even an amoeba survived the tundra months of winter. I will not step foot in Main until July 1 because of the black flies. They are VICIOUS!! And I think the mosquitoes on the east coast are the worst, confirmed by this Off Insect Repellent study. After leaving Vail I checked for ticks as I always do when out in the western woods. In Johnson City, I know that scorpions are waiting to get me inside my boots and shoes so we shake ‘em before we put them on.

Mid century modern lovers, get your engines rolling! Consider 9039 Devonshire an early Christmas gift. You won’t find more pure MC than this in a 50 year old, one-owner home that is like a time machine back to 1951. Look at those built in benches, sloped ceilings, reams of walnut. Same owner all these years, this is the first time the home has been made available. Lovingly maintained with kid gloves and much love, but I hear agents are using the T word in whispers, since it is located on a prime creek-edged Devonshire acre with views of a lake. You get the necessary goods: four bedrooms, three baths in 2500 plus square feet. Asking $1,450,000 with Claire Dewar at Briggs Freeman Sothebys.

Good morning! You may have heard that the Cowboys trounced the Redskins yesterday!You may also have heard that ranches are coming back in style. Yes, after all those years of mega-storied McMansion utility hogs, guess what more people are craving: a one story ranch! And 5337 Southern is a stunning ranch that was TOTALLY taken down to the studs and updated by mega builder Nickey Oates. Basically, you have a new home with a pool so gorgeous it’s won an award. There’s a kitchen that will compete with (and rule over) any brand new sassy McMansion kitchen. Case in point: an Advantium oven. Where do I begin? Traditional, but not overtly so. Perfect size at 3509 square feet: three bedrooms, four and a half baths, formals, den, library, verandah and that stunner of a pool. Inside there are vaulted ceilings, gorgeous hardwoods — pecan in the master and adjoining library — central vac, plantation shutters, fire sprinkers, limestone and marble baths, recirculating tankless water heaters, and 18 SEER HVAC. Listed with Christopher McGuire over at Briggs-Freeman Sotheby’s International for $1,185,000.

This home at 5317 Emerson is just north of Greenway Parks, east of Inwood, and so adorable I want to stuff it in my pocket and take it home. Built in 1949, super updated from the floors to the energy efficient windows in each room: updated kitchen, updated guest bath. (They wisely kept the original pink tile in the main bath.) Two bedrooms, two baths, two living areas in a perfect 1706 square feet. I feel like I’m over-using the word new, but new slate front porch, new back porch. New siding & brick. New recessed lighting. New garage doors & more! I think it’s as cute as a button for $399,00… that’s right, just under $400,000! Listed with Susan Thomas at Allie Beth Allman.
