This ranch in Aledo will give its new owner a lot of reasons to be thankful. Stone Ridge Acres is a horse lover’s dream, sitting in the midst of 20 acres and only a 20-minute drive from downtown Fort Worth.
The stately iron-gated entrance leads to the main house on a scenic quarter-mile concrete drive. Upon arrival you are greeted by a two-story Mediterranean-style villa constructed of limestone and stucco with a red tile roof.
This is one horse farm with true curb appeal. The house is positioned to provide front views of the horse pastures and private, tranquil rear views to the pool and spa, terraces and greenbelt full of native Texas trees. The grounds are entirely landscaped with beds of flowering plants, concrete walkways and native trees. Professional lighting frames the house and landscape.
The central entryway opens to the grand, two-story, formal living room with French doors leading out to the patio and poolscape beyond. Arched door facings and gleaming Travertine marble floors marry the lower-level living areas. The formal dining room has expansive views as well. An adjacent library is warm with built-ins and boxed wood-beamed ceilings.
The professionally designed kitchen layout includes custom cabinets, granite countertops, a functional island, a convenient breakfast bar and a show-stopping carved farm sink. It is open to the expansive family room and breakfast room, making this space the heart of family life. The main level also boasts a state-of-the-art media room, as well as a guest bedroom and full bath.
Numerous amenities are found in the private master retreat, with its own sitting area grounded by a solid carved marble fireplace. A luxurious spa bathroom with Sherle Wagner gold and onyx faucets and fixtures has a garden tub as well as separate glass shower and separate vanities. The second story also has a sitting area, kitchen, game room, billiard area and two additional large split bedrooms, each with its own bath.
Equestrian facilities include the 18-stall stables, a covered arena, fenced pastures and two large equipment sheds. The caretaker’s home is 1,000 square feet.
