About the property

This 5 acre homestead was built in 1978, and became the home of J B and Louise Spradley They lovingly cared for it, providing a place where family, extended family and friends could gather. It is still used for gatherings by the family to this day. A red barn can be seen across the pond, where ducks return year after year. Take a stroll around the property, sit and enjoy nature in one of the sitting areas.

My husband Tom and I have been married for 53 years. We have 3 children, 15 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren, One of my greatest pleasures is having my family come over. We use the main house, the one you will be staying in, as a gathering place for our 'Family Time. Another is sharing this place with others.You can often find me outside puttering around in the yard or on the lawn mover.

BEVERLY CROUCH purchased this house in 1978

Why BEVERLY CROUCH chose Mansfield

I, Beverly Spradley Crouch, am the second generation owner of 'The Farm' .My dad literately purchased this land from the court house steps and built the house himself. As my parents health declined, my husband Tom and myself, moved onto the property. My dad, built the main house, pond, waterfall, bridge and landscaped the property. All after the age of 62!

One of his desires was to have a place where his family, friends and church family could gather and enjoy each others company. Both Louise and JB loved to have people around them. Their grandchildren and great grandchildren spent many hours at 'the Farm' building lifetime memories. Now we are sharing it with others as well.

What makes this house unique

Upon entering the drive way, you will see a swing hanging from a limb of a Live Oak the JB planted when he purchased the property. Rockers are on the front porch, for those who want to rock away their day. For those winter months, a wood burning fire place can be found in the main living area. Whether having a meal inside or out, you can see the pond and all the activities of the outdoors. Squirrels chasing each other, hawks gliding by, or a red cardinal feeding from one of the feeders. You can take a walk out back, sit in the gazebo, or walk the short meditation trail where you will find another tree swing. The red barn out back and the old fence is a good picture spot for those who want a real country background.

A children's play area can be found in the back yard. Pitch some horseshoes out front or shot a basketball. For a larger group, volleyball is available.

Perfect cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house and the property. We made plans last minute when hurricane Irma ruined our Florida plans. The owner was lovely and couldn't have been more kind. The only negative that we saw is twin beds that would have better to have queen or even king size beds in the guest rooms

When will I receive my deposit back?

Everything was great but don't understand why I haven't received my deposit back

Owner's Response: HomeAway issues this refund, usually 10 days after the guest leave, giving the owners time to thoroughly go through the house. I checked this morning and the refund was issued on the 19th. It was my pleasure to have you as guest and I hope you will make a return visit. Beverly

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could possibly need or imagine. The owners are very sweet and accommodating. The home itself is beautiful and the outdoor living in amazing. We had a small family wedding and it was perfect for the bride and groom and their 50 guests. We would stay here again and again!

Fantastic Family Farm Fun

  • 5 of 5

Its almost impossible to fully explain how great this rental is. Fully stocked is a huge understatement , we hosted my daughters HS Graduation party for 60plus quests and literally only had to bring food and decorations, every thing else was there, every possible serving item you could ever need and more.

The property fully accommodated our out of town quests , with room to spare.. The kids used full roll away beds and set up in the game room.

The "Farm "is super clean, beautiful sprawling back yard oasis , covered porch with tables and ceiling fans ..Beverly and Tom are beyond wonderful and easy to work with. If you need a place to put quests for any of the Mansfield High School graduations , the property is 5minutes from the venue. Movie theater , shopping and loads of restaurants 5 minutes (try Cha-Chas Mexican ). The "Farm" is worth every penny. We will rent again. Also super close to Fort Worth and Dallas .

Thank you Beverly and Tom

Our quests loved your wonderful retreat
