Ensconced amid the luxurious shoreline of Long Cove is this swoonworthy property. Spanning over 1,000 acres toward the far end of Cedar Creek Reservoir, this lakeshore community is nothing short of spectacular. Imagine if Nancy Meyers had a lake house in the Lone Star State, and odds are that your vision will look a whole lot like this house. From clean lines to comfortable finishings, the moment you step foot into the house, you will feel immediately at home and ready for some much-welcomed R&R.

Natural beauty beckons with sparkling water mere steps away from the verdant lawns that provide the perfect oasis. Approximately an hour southeast of Dallas, this environment undoubtedly evokes a sense of carefree joy. “We wanted our kids to have free range to run and just be kids,” enthuses Angela Wonderly, homeowner of the property. “We needed a space where we could just hop in the car for a quick getaway.” She admits that she and her husband were looking for a place that offered a family escape—away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The moment she and her husband toured the space and caught one glimpse of the gorgeous surroundings and community amenities, they were hooked. “Knowing what residential markets are trending is part of what I do,” shares Anthony Wonderly, who is a partner at BellRock Real Estate Partners. “We found Long Cove at exactly the right time for the market and for our family.” With the blink of an eye—aka 30 days after signing—the family settled into the new space and geared up to enjoy the dog days of summer.

Clearly the family struck before the iron was too hot as we all know the lake house market has exploded over the course of the past year. Weaving the serenity from the cool breeze in the air and the small ripplings of the water into a casual setting, this property is a daydreamer’s paradise.
