Daily Dream Home: Kipling Lear Ranch


The 136-acre Kipling Lear Ranch is located near Fort Worth in the Aledo School district and represents a rare opportunity to enjoy country living only minutes from the city.

The main house is situated on the banks overlooking Bear Creek in a setting like no other in the area. The 7,014 square foot main house has five bedrooms, five baths, and two half baths. The owner’s architects and builders worked with  New York interior designer, Alexa Hampton, to create a sense of history and tradition in a relaxed atmosphere.

The wood floors throughout are original 8-inch oak floor boards salvaged from century old buildings. The master bath has marble floors, a steam shower, and a tub. The suite opens onto a beautiful courtyard with a fountain and views of the creek. Upstairs are four bedrooms, each with their own private bath.

The kitchen has a large island, an abundance of cabinets and storage space, and boasts two of almost every appliance a modern kitchen needs. An outdoor room with a fireplace and a retracting wall system can be used in comfort year-round giving beautiful views of the creek.

This farm features a 20-stall horse barn with amenities including a catering kitchen. It is currently being used primarily for private parties but is also fully functional for horses. The adjacent covered arena has an enclosed, climate controlled viewing gallery with a retracting window system. The pool house is ideal for poolside entertainment or weekend guests and the Zen-inspired pool has a large spa, copper lined waterfall, and three copper fountains that spill into the lap lane.

The property also includes a three-bedroom guest house and a three-bedroom manager’s house. This unique ranch is listed for $10.85 million with William Trews and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
