This 608-acre East Texas ranch has homes with a Dallas designer’s touch

When country charm meets Dallas chic, you get this home filled with patterns, prints and hints of its East Texas locale.

Hickory Wind Farm, as it is called, is a 608-acre property in the city of Chandler, about an hour and a half east of Dallas. The property has a 7,341-square-foot main house, a guest house, a cedar barn with an apartment, two ranch manager residences, a workshop, a shotgun range, five ponds, a lake and a pool. The property also comes with six quarter horses, 32 cows and a donkey, should you want company during your stay.

Listing agent Michelle Wood with Compass said that the property could be called a ranch because of its expansive size. It is located in Henderson County and Van Zandt County.

Before you picture a ranch home dressed in taxidermy and leather, note that the main house and the guest house were designed by Dallas designer Cathy Kincaid who is known for her timeless, elegant style. Kincaid said the home offered various spaces for entertaining and porches for relaxing and she wanted the home to reflect the couple’s personalities.

“I used striped cotton rugs and natural fabrics to evoke a casual, relaxed feel,” Kincaid said via email. “We used a lot of painted furniture, Arts & Crafts cabinets from Belgium and early 20th century English ceramics.”

The property is listed for $17 million and is to be sold furnished.

The main house has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. It is a multi-level design with three livable levels.

The lowest level of the house is used as an entertainment area, and residents or visitors can walk out from there to the backyard area where a pool and fireplace are located, Wood said. The main level of the home includes multiple living spaces, a large kitchen with a breakfast area, plus a wet bar. All of the bedrooms, including the primary suite, are located on the upper level of the home and each one has an en suite bathroom.

The guest house on the property was also designed by Kincaid and has two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms plus a full kitchen, a dining area and a living room.

The address of the property is 14006 FM 279 in Chandler, Texas.
