The property and structures not only offer an opportunity for relaxed and playful living, Quarry Lakes Ranch offers fishing, horseback riding trails, hunting, and recreational vehicle/mountain bike routes without ever leaving this private parcel of land.
Purchased in 2002, the owners developed the former limestone quarry over the last 19 years to create a serene and outdoor wonderland on the vast property. It all begins with a spacious 3,768 square foot main house that cuddles with a 1,400+ square foot front porch with stunning lake views. The open floor plan includes three bedrooms, which are complimented with three full bathrooms. The third bedroom is a loft, making it ideal for multiple beds or setup as one grand bedroom. The master suite comes complete with built-in shelving and a generous number of windows to enjoy the natural beauty offered by this property. Several sitting areas help create the perfect exclusive retreat for its occupants. A spacious walk-in closet and changing quarter enhance this private and spacious suite. The master bathroom anchors the master suite and it includes a Jacuzzi bathtub. The main house features heated and central air-conditioned climate control, along with a propane-powered generator capable of running the entire household if the power goes out.
Walking through the main house reveals high-vaulted ceilings in a rustic, yet stylish fashion that is indicative of ranch homes out west. The details throughout the domicile continue to carry the rural ranch theme with eloquent use of wood for function and form. Expansive windows provide natural light, while giving residents gorgeous views of a tranquil lake and the private undeveloped land that makes up this property.
The main house kitchen offers multiple sinks, copious amounts of countertop space, range top and stove, multiple refrigerators, walk-in pantry, and wine fridge. It is setup to serve the most basic of meals up or capable of handling a feast for a popular holiday party. An open office space sits off the kitchen area for those who need to mix work and pleasure. Just off the main house sits a gardening/potting shed with running water and power, as well as a gardening section that includes irrigation. A casual stone patio with outdoor fireplace is a short distance from the main house, the perfect space for those cool nights to entertain family and friends or relax in the serenity of the Quarry Lakes Ranch.
The guesthouse was built in 1984 and is 1,888 square feet, capable of hosting family and friends or setup as a vacation/rental property. The large front porch offers a clean view of the pasture and animals. It has been fitted with four bedrooms and 2.5 baths, which have been impeccably maintained and designed with the appropriate ranch décor. The living room features large windows, vaulted ceilings, and is a wonderful location for guests to congregate and enjoy their time away from home. Multiple skylights have been strategically placed to provide natural light across the entire area. The updated kitchen features a breakfast bar and up-to-date appliances. Like the main house, the guesthouse offers a back-up generator in the event power-outages occur and this one runs on diesel fuel. A bonus pole barn is located close-by for farm equipment storage or other utility use.
The final living accommodation is a quant cottage that checks in at 767 square feet with one bedroom and one full bathroom. A bonus room sits on the backside of the structure, which can be used as an office, hobby room, or even a spare bedroom. The cottage is a cozy settlement for guests, ranch employees, or as a vacation rental. It features a full kitchen with appliances and a washer and dryer, perfect intimate accommodations for full- or part-time living.
For playtime, the residents and guests can enjoy an aquatic fusion that combines a large-sized pool and hot tub that was built in 2020. The water will always be the perfect temperature as it is both cooled and heated, depending on the season. The pool house, which was built in 2009 and carries 2,853 square feet of inside space and over looks the generously sized pool. The heated pool house has two full bathrooms, kitchenette, washer/dryer combination, and an entertainment area. Adjacent to the pool house is a spacious garage with room for four vehicles and a work area. A smaller garage beside it is designed to house recreational vehicles, lawnmowers, and other equipment. If lake living is in the plans, the owners added a structure on one of the lakes that includes a tiki bar, outdoor kitchen, and entertainment space.
The final structure on the impressive Quarry Lakes Ranch is the barn, which features 2,257 square feet under the roof. The functioning barn includes an air-conditioned tack room, half bath, feed room, and five stalls that include automatic water bowls. The fifth stall is extra-sized to accommodate birthing and/or animals that require extra care. Additionally, there is a cattle pen and chute to give proper care to cattle and other livestock.
Work, play, and entertainment are the hallmarks of the Quarry Lakes Ranch and its diverse property and lakes. It is capable of family living with room for large numbers of guests and it has hosted weddings, fishing tournaments, company events, and private hunting adventures.
