Make sure you’re exploring all your possibilities in today’s fast-moving real estate market. If you’re not tied to an office every day of the week or attached to city life, it’s the perfect time to check out what communities have to offer a little farther outside of Dallas’ core.

Allie Beth Allman & Associates has incredible listings, with acreage for every buyer’s taste. Enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, all while the adventures of the city are just a short drive away.

A property in Sunnyvale lives up to the town’s name. Ripe for cheery days, the home at 339 Town East Blvd. offers 16 acres to spread out across and includes two barns for keeping horses. The residence features high ceilings and walls of glass. Originally built in 2002, it gained an addition more recently to bring the footprint to 8,003 square feet. Mary Alice Garrison holds the listing.

Approximately 30 minutes from Dallas, the custom ranch at 12300 State Highway, No. 205 in Lavon could be your ideal family compound or weekend getaway. This 10-acre property features a main house and an attached guesthouse, providing seven bedrooms and seven-plus bathrooms. The estate has a pond and looks out to Lake Ray Hubbard, with views from the second-floor terrace. Melissa Oates has the ranch listing.

If you’re an avid golfer, check out Jim Walsh’s offering at 2145 Grand View Court. Situated on 3 acres in Cedar Hill, the custom limestone home is full of perks, including a three-hole golf course. After working on your swing, you can soak in the pool or spa, unwind in the cabana with its own fireplace or host guests on the expansive terraces. Inside the over 7,000-square-foot home, everything is also done to an impressive scale.

Another custom creation, the new construction at 890 Liberty Lane in Keller, was completed this year with many modern conveniences. In the great room, automated sliding doors open to the backyard, where outdoor living spaces and a pool await. For a tech-minded buyer, features like the four-car garage with a Tesla station or the home’s sound system might be major selling points as well. Nanette Ecklund-Luker and Shane Taylor hold the .82-acre listing.
