A WORLD-CLASS TEXAS RESORT, this 2,500± acre idyllic and very private, almost hidden, retreat ranch-resort absolutely defies the imagination and defines the very best of authentic Texas lifestyle with a Four Seasons finish. Exuding a simple tranquility and functional excellence, the property goes beyond pampering both its owners and guests into a realm of extraordinary luxury and eclectic, exclusive comfort not previously seen in the area. Barefoot is simply an Icon: One of One.
Containing world-class comfort, amenities and hosting capabilities, this secret and secure property lies just an hour from Dallas and 10 minutes from the nearest jet strip. It has hosted—in both comfort and security—economic and leadership summits and retreats for high-security executives, state and national politicians, countless rock and country music stars as well as celebrities of all kinds. It is also capable of hosting and handling several large families and groups of 50 or more at once for extended stays in the multifaceted lodging, cabins and luxurious apartments that go beyond the main lodge, expanding the maximum capacity while providing privacy and intimacy when desired.
Barefoot is truly a luxury resort with a distinctive “less is more” approach, exhibiting clean architectural lines, subdued use of wood and stone and bunkered service buildings built into hillsides. Some features are even obscured by massive boulders and hidden by groves of beautiful pine trees that flourish throughout East Texas. If the Queen of England owned a family royal retreat disguised as a ranch in Texas, it would be this one. Detailed in design, impeccably maintained and meticulous in thought, planning, landscape design, architecture and use of space, the estate is breathtaking. It features an incredible 35,000-square-foot, timber-beamed lodge with exquisite gardens, PGA rated 9-hole golf course, boat house, multiple cabins and cottages, tennis courts, driving range, paintball course, shooting range, equestrian center, organic garden and greenhouse and garages for car and toy collectors—all sequestered and combined across the hills and dale in an idyllic and incredible setting encompassed by scenic ski and boating lakes. It is all wrapped up in and surrounded by an incredible mix of serene rolling hay fields with woods and wetlands with abundant wildlife. In its discerning class, Barefoot is by far and away the single most outstanding example of tasteful “money is no object” craft and construction in Texas.
