A beautiful Texas hill country home on a picturesque heavily wooded, creek-side 6+ acres in the quiet Collin County countryside.
This special custom-built one-of-a-kind, single-story, stone, hill country estate is situated on scenic acreage down a quiet, secluded country road. This unique property features a charming stocked pond with flowering plants and lily pads sheltered by willow trees, set along the winding driveway under a canopy of native trees.
