This incredible Ranch estate in none-other-than Colleyville, Texas is simply a paradise. With panoramic views of green Texas pastures, I’m surprised this estate hasn’t already been sold!

With a landscaped front gated entry, a stained driveway leads up to the residence. The drive up is fantastic with views of the rolling countryside and a full view of the home. Passing a private lake surrounded by barely wooded grounds, the driveway splits into a circular path with roads to either side of the parking areas – 6 total garage bays. A perfect amount of landscaping around the immediate residence allow a clear view of the front of the house. Around back, the estate boasts a 3 part, and odd looking, swimming pool, large loggia, second floor balcony overlooking pool/outdoor activities, and cabana attached to two bedroom guesthouse. The total acreage spans 4.65 acres.

The interior is no different. With a calm and homely Western/Ranch touch, all interior amenities boast fine living. The key features include 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms with a master suite. A dual staircase foyer gives way to a formal living den with fireplace. Other interior amenities include a large gameroom upstairs, exquisite master suite, 8 seat media room, formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, and 12,826 sq. feet of living space. Truly a Texas estate!

The estate can be found at 405 John McCain Road, unknown if the former presidential candidate had anything to do with the naming of the street. It is listed for $2,999,999.

    Daniel, do you want to jump in here? You can have first dibs on this one. I don’t know where to start.

    With an address like “John McCain Road”, how can you go wrong? Only in Texas…

    Kenny, I can honestly say that is one of the worst homes EVER featured on this site. It looks like the photos were taken 2 hours after the show “Hoarders” left. It is so incredibly filthy, dingy and ugly. Architecturally it is garbage. The driveway looks like it is caked with mud. The tiny arch at the top of the stairs is begging for Nosferatu to come peeking out. All the other rooms look like they were under water for about 2 weeks. Including the picture of that closet with the finest Salvation Army threads was a BRILLIANT idea. I can smell the smell of smoke and mold in the theater from my computer here in S. Florida. The rainbow, although a cute touch, only makes the exterior look even more gloomy.

    Shi*tiest house I have seen in a long time. I refuse to believe this home was built in 2004. The worst cookie-cutter homes I have been in look nicer than this house. Heck, I’ve seen the inside of trailer homes that are better decorated than this pile of feces. And a $3 million price tag? Pardon me while I laugh my a$$ off…

      What is it with all the (potential) ghosties in these homes lately? That’s our new theme, I guess. 🙂

        Seems to be, but is it really that hard to create something that doesn’t cater to the paranormal? I mean really, how can you not see this happening in this home:

          Thanks a lot, Daniel. Ubercreepy. Now I have to caffeinate my border collie so she stands guard all night.

        I don’t know what it says about me but when I first read your comment very quickly I read the word “firsting” as “fisting”. I wasn’t quite sure what you were trying to say! Take that to mean what you wish about me!

          I knew someone would read it that way. Points to you for actually admitting it here. 🙂

      Bless John’s heart for believing in this home, but Daniel, you probably will win for “Funniest” comment of the year. And it’s only January 10th.!!!

      I looked at the pictures, and I was thinking much of the same, what the HELL was the photographer and interior designer thinking!!!??? They must’ve been on Meth or something. You’re right about the driveway looking caked with mud. I didn’t even noticed that until I read your comment. So Classic!

      But I think like others have said, that if you cleaned up this place, changed a few things around, got better paint jobs, that you could make this place pretty nice. It does have some potential, and I think that in the very least, that is what John saw when he wrote this post.

    Nice amount of acreage. But John McCain Road? No thanks.

    It needs lots of cosmetic updates, but I can see this being a great family home. Plenty of indoor and outdoor space for kids to run around, and reasonable proximity to a big city.

    I usually avoid looking at the prices (I’m not shopping), but this seems like a reasonable deal.

    Daniel, you hit most of my major points. I did want to add the pond out front looks like it’s filled with mud. It is definitely a dark and creepy looking house. As for John McCain Road…you couldn’t pay me enough to have to give out that as part of my address!

    This is just as bad as the last house. Nothing in this house is attractive. Maybe it’s the camera but it all looks really dark, dingy, uninviting. And the orange kitchen is terrible. I love the rainbow over the pool that lands on the house, your very own pot of gold. LOL

    How do homes like this one manage to pass any kind of quality check here? If a rich person owned this house, I really REALLY want to know who he or she is, because frankly, I don’t believe it that they’re rich.

    I remember this house.
    I am sure it has been on this site before.
    John McCain road, how many homes on a road named that could there be on this site?

    The reason that this house has not sold is that it is an utter piece of sh*t on the inside.
    It is just abyssmal.
    Everything about it is just wrong.

    Down almost a mil from the original asking price–another 1.5 down and it will probably sell. After that, about a million in redo and it will be a decent home, although nothing special.

    About a year ago Kenny posted a house in Saddle River NJ. He named it the decorator show case. We all thought the decorators were the worst we had ever seen. That they were in competation to out ugly each other. That they would never work again. Well, in this time of high unemployment it makes my heart feel good to know that thet all found work, even if it is 1500 miles away.
