Property description

This is a 1700 sq. ft home on a wooded property near Lake Texoma, with home-away-from-home amenities. Tastefully decorated; dotting the walls are canvas photographs we have taken of some of the wildlife and nature you may see around the area. Immerse yourself in this quiet, peaceful, nature-lovers environment.
*Roomy full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge, and a trash compactor.
*Large large living area with 32' flat screen HDTV, Dish Network and broadband and WiFi internet connections. Also in the main area is a sofa that is a queen-size sleeper and a futon that can convert into a full-size bed.
*Solid wood dining table with wood / leather trim comfy chairs seats 6 generously, but more can join the table as well.
*New memory foam mattresses in all 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and private bathroom; the second and third bedrooms both have 2 twin beds that can used separately or pushed together to make one king sized bed - adding flexibility for your sleeping arrangement needs. The second bathroom is off the main living area; in a hall between the two bedrooms described.
*Large front porch, small back porch - both perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and evening cocktail, relaxing and bird watching. The front part of the property has plenty of room for badminton, bocce ball, or a game of horseshoe.
*in the back near the pond is a firepit available for your use
*gas grill for your use
*On the acre next door is our vacation home, if you need more room along with Juniper Place; you can rent this one, too.
*There is also a pond in the back. You can feed the turtles and fish - but no fishing is allowed. Several walking trails in the woods - we've marked the boundaries with large metal butterflies on the trees -see if you can find them all!
*This property is on a migration path; so you never know what kinds of birds you will see!
*For the more adventurous (and those with a GPS), the property backs up to 500 acres of Corps of Engineer property which is available for walking around/easy hiking.
*5 minutes drive further down Flowing Wells Road is Flowing Wells Marina with access to Lake Texoma; you can fish there. 10 minutes up the other road at Mill Creek Marina, you can rent a boat or arrange a guided fishing tour of Lake Texoma. Let us know what you need and we'll get you fixed up.
*horseback riding is available further up 289
**NEARBY: A few minutes south on 120, turn right on Keefer road and follow the signs to get to Hagerman Wildlife Refuge, a must-see while visiting Lake Texoma if you enjoy wildlife and birds. This property and the surrounding area is a paradise for bird watchers. There is also golf, a spa, Eisenhower State Park and The Choctaw Casino all within less than 25 minutes. Lake Texoma itself is enough to keep you busy the entire time you are here. The lake is 89000 acres and has all the activities you would expect, power boating, sailing fishing (guided if you like) and there are several islands in the lake with large sandy beaches to spend the day on.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live in Dallas; have 2 dogs, 2 grown sons and a daughter-in-law. We love the quick getaway from the city/suburbs to relax and enjoy nature in the Lake Texoma area as much as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Pottsboro:
Carole came to Lake Texoma occasionally as a child for family reunions. We've been going to Lake Texoma as a family and as a couple over the years on weekend trips and family reunions; enjoying jet skiing, boating, and spending time together at the lake. In 2008 after our sons were in college, we found a home that's on the way to the marina where we keep our boat - just the spot for spending relaxing weekends. When the property on the adjacent acre lot became available in 2013 (we knew the owner, knew the house, and what great condition it was in) - just thought it would be perfect to buy and turn into a vacation rental so that others would be able to enjoy the relaxing Arboritaville® nature getaway experience We also were able to purchase the undeveloped acre next to our vacation home; now 'squaring off' the whole 5 acres - so lots of space and privacy. David named our area Arboritaville® because of all the beautiful trees on the property. We decided to call our vacation home 'Oak Haven' because of all the oak trees around, and the home we offer as vacation rental 'Juniper Place' because of the large Juniper bushes in front. Arboritaville® is only about an hour north of Dallas, 45 minutes north of Frisco; but worlds away in terms of feeling and environment.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
45 minutes north of Frisco; about an hour north of Dallas; - so an easy, quick getaway. Great for birdwatching, relaxing, and just enjoying the simplicity and beauty that surrounds you when you are there.
