Robbie’s Real Estate Trends: Lake Lifestyle

As seen in the Dallas Business Journal:

Something about water brings out the best in families. Skiing across the foaming wake, swimming together, sunning or grilling outdoors at a picnic by a lake house. It can be the perfect place to make memories that will last a lifetime.

As El Niño is likely to be succeeded by its cooler kid sister, La Niña, in Texas that’s meant a lot of water. And when our lakes are as full as they are today, there is a good deal of interest in our beautiful and diverse waterfront properties.

A good example of that is The Harbor, a stunning development Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty represents on beautiful Possum Kingdom Lake. Nestled in the foothills of the Palo Pinto Mountains, just a short drive west of Fort Worth, Possum Kingdom is often called “The Great Lake of Texas.”

The area features more than 300 miles of picturesque shoreline and 18,000 acres of clear water surrounded by magnificent cliffs and rolling hillsides. Breathtaking rustic views of the Texas landscape are legendary, as are the premier homes located within The Harbor – an ideal family retreat.

Living spaces at The Harbor range from cabins built on serene creeks and private ponds nestled in the woods to grand, lakeshore homes with commanding views and spacious, three-story floor plans.

The development also features a significant list of amenities including a luxuriously appointed 18-room hotel; lakeside dining at The Grille; a well-appointed spa and fitness center; and a full time, service-oriented concierge.

For those looking to build, The Pointe is a separate gated community within The Harbor that enjoys all the amenities with the additional luxury of a private shoreline and secluded peninsula.

North Texas is peppered with beautifully historic lakes to be enjoyed. In my experience, water makes the perfect backdrop to make a lifetime of family memories.
