Four decades ago, entrepreneur Sam Wilson began a search for a special piece of Texas, a country haven where he could build family traditions and priceless memories, a throwback to growing up on a ranch south of Dallas. He found it on a prime 64-acre rolling parcel of land filled with wildlife, native oak and pecan trees, less than an hour from both Dallas and Fort Worth. He named it Shady Oaks Ranch, and over the years, it became his family’s home, workplace and playground—a rural paradise to walk, explore and fish and to ride horses and ATVs. With its vistas and Texas Longhorns grazing on the lush meadows, the legacy ranch also served twice as the iconic backdrop for the Cattle Baron’s Ball.
Sit back and put your feet up on the front porch and watch the Black Angus cattle graze in the lush green meadows below. Saddle up a horse, climb onto an ATV or take in the vistas while sitting under native trees as they cast their shadows at sunrise or sunset. Grab your rod and reel and sit on the dock or fish from the banks of your well-stocked private lake. Of course, on those hot summer days a swim or an adventure by boat to the center island that is shaped like a Texas Longhorn can be lots of fun. Life at Shady Oaks is good.
Today people want a place that does not confine but gives room to roam and live large. Because of its location and wonderful topography, Shady Oaks Ranch is perfect for a developer to offer a unique Texas style neighborhood. A special place to build a dream home and have plenty of land for elegant country living, exercise and open spaces. Shady Oaks Ranch is the land of possibilities.
