Hi, I'm Dirk!
I bought this home as a weekend getaway in the summer of 2005. I completely remodeled the entire home to modernize and make a few structural adjustments.
I am an IT professional, so getting outdoors and enjoying the countryside is very important to me. I work and live in the Dallas area and Holly Lake Ranch is less than two hours away, so getting out of the concrete jungle is very easy. Escaping the city lights and noise, I noticeably feel more rested and relaxed when I visit the Ranch.
I lose track of time as I am outside playing golf, riding my bike, hiking in the woods, swimming in one of the many ranch pools or boating\fishing on the lake. My home is on the top part of the 18th hole, so the Club House (Starter) is a short walk down the hill. I often just tee off of 18th hole and walk down to play a round of golf. Another advantage of being so close to the Club House is the dining. If I am too lazy to cook at the house, I will walk down to the Four Seasons restaurant (next to the Club House) and enjoy a steak, chicken, or salad. The restaurant has a full menu with daily specials, so you can always find something to get stuffed and walk it off heading back to the house.
On occasion, I have to tend to business matters so I have high speed cable internet and every room in the house wired for service. You can also access the wireless network and sit out on the porch taking in the beauty and peace of the course. When I am not working, I either kick back in the living room and flip through 100 plus channels or sit out on the front porch and watch the deer, squirrels, foxes and other wildlife as they forage for food.
If you enjoy being outdoors or just getting away for all the city madness, you will love my home. Although I love my home in Dallas, I can never match the rested feeling I have after visting the Ranch. Rent my home and come enjoy the Ranch. I guaranty you will feel more refreshed and rested when return to your daily livesâ€¦
