Located on the outskirts of Ennis, Texas, a charming suburb just southeast of Dallas on I-45, this 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath barndominium offers a unique blend of rustic charm while still bringing all of the modern comforts we love. Situated on a spacious 5.1-acre lot with scenic views of the surrounding countryside, 761 Moseley provides a serene retreat for all its guests. I mean, how could you go wrong with a small-town atmosphere, beautiful countryside, and such a distinctive design?
As you pull into the drive, you'll quickly recognize the farmhouse appeal. White metal siding with black accents, plus the covered porch and metal roof, make this style versatile, durable, and inviting. From the very first impression, you feel welcome to relax and enjoy the peace of the country. Another thing you notice is the incredible detached 40’x40’ shop/garage. It has two 12’ overhead doors and a half bath of its own.
Stepping inside, we’re greeted by an open floor plan that seamlessly combines the living, dining, and kitchen areas. The interior boasts high ceilings and polished concrete floors. This area is a blank slate, ready to support your sense of style. Natural light pairs well with all the accent lights, bringing even more room to breathe.
The kitchen is a focal point of the home, featuring modern appliances, ample cabinet space, and a large island that doubles as a breakfast bar. It's the perfect space for preparing delicious meals and entertaining guests. The area directly across from the kitchen can serve as a dining area and offers plenty of room for a family-sized dining table.
The three bedrooms in the barndominium are thoughtfully designed, elevating comfort and class. The primary bedroom becomes a peaceful retreat, complete with a private en-suite bathroom featuring a large custom closet, dual sinks, quartz countertops, a garden tub, a walk-in shower, bright accents, and modern fixtures. On the opposite side of the home, there are two bedrooms that share a fantastic full bath and an additional flex room which would serve as a great office space or playroom. The layouts are spacious and versatile, accommodating multiple arrangements to suit individual needs.
There are a few more spaces we really like here. So many little details have really been thought through to bring great functionality to this space. The utility room provides access to the attached two-car garage, and the back of the barndominium has a full-length covered patio. The extra space, either on your lot or even in the detached garage, can be utilized for various purposes; maybe as a workshop, for tools, a storage area, or a garage for vehicles and recreational equipment. The detached garage is a 1600 square-foot, commercial-grade steel metal building that features 12' W x 14' H heavy-duty, roll-up doors. It is also fully insulated and comes with a half-bath restroom of its very own.
Known for being an escape from the Big City, Ennis capitalizes on its picturesque views, rolling hills, and wide-open spaces. It’s truly a tranquil environment for outdoor activities and relaxation. This specific lot is just 10 minutes from I-45 on FM 879 (and 15 minutes from your own HEB). It’s a blank canvas with endless homestead possibilities.
When we say there is much to love about this area, we aren’t exaggerating. Ennis and the surrounding communities within Ellis County have really prioritized keeping their hometown charm alive! Here are just a few of the reasons we know you’d love to come home to this area:
- Bluebonnet Trails: Ennis is known as the "Official Bluebonnet City of Texas," and during springtime (typically in April), the area comes alive with vibrant bluebonnet blooms. Just “going to town” will take you on a scenic drive to enjoy a stunning wildflower display.
- Historic Downtown: Visit the charming downtown area of Ennis, filled with historic buildings, boutique shops, cultural history landmarks, and local restaurants. Take a leisurely stroll, enjoy the architecture, and indulge in some shopping and dining.
- Lake Life: Lake Bardwell is located just outside Ennis and offers opportunities for outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, swimming, and picnicking.
- Wine Down: Wine enthusiasts can visit the Sugar Ridge Winery. Take a tour, sample a variety of wines, and even enjoy live music on select days.
- Watch and Learn: Galaxy Drive-In Theatre is a local favorite, drawing in movie-goers from all across the Metroplex. This classic drive-in theater brings movies to life every night of the year (and one ticket gets you a double feature all summer long)!
The small town life that Ennis offers might just be the quiet comfort you’ve been looking for. But remember, you’re less than 30 minutes from Dallas and all of the luxury shopping, dining, entertainment, and culture you could ever need. While tempting to head to a northern suburb of Big D, don’t miss out on this part of our country.
