Page 16 - The Real Estate Book Online - Vol. 22, No. 3 ABOUT THE COVER HOME

Grand, luxurious, and peaceful, this Gentleman’s Ranch is an estate you would be proud to own. Custom designed and lovingly built to the highest standards. From the gated entry to the fencing surrounding the nearly 10 acres of pristine property with a fully stocked Tilapia acre lake, you will enjoy this viewpoint from your wraparound porch sitting high on this tranquil and enchanting property. In viewing the relaxing and inviting pool, the first thing that will come to mind is that you own your very own resort, with three outbuildings including a four stall horse barn, equipment barn, and a three-stage chicken house that you must see. Some of these chickens even lay multi-colored eggs, right in time for Easter. The main house is made of block/poured concrete, and concrete board siding, metal roof, impact doors and windows, and a safe room with its own air filtration system so you can weather any storm. And now for this 6,500 square foot masterpiece, let’s just say, “You’ll have to see it for yourself.” By appointment only. $1,395,000 Gene Billero will be delighted to show it to you within 24 hours of your request.
