Overview

About the property

Great house, great view, deep water, great East Peninsula location w/ Wifi

This waterfront tri-level home was built in 2005. It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home, located close to the end of the Peninsula on the east side of Possum Kingdom lake.

This is a private home with a wood burning fireplace, central air and heat, Wifi, beamed cathedral ceiling, multiple covered decks, and fabulous views of the lake from every room. (We turned the house plans around so the large windows face the lake.)

There are extensive custom stone patios with steps going down to the lake, a fishing pier and over 300 feet of private secluded shoreline. We are the last house on our road, with a wilderness area to the left and there's unlimited shoreline past our 300 feet, to explore.

Mexican saltillo tile floors with rugs are on the second and lower level, two fully tiled baths, central heating and air conditioning, ceiling fans, huge, well equipped kitchen, with microwave, range, dishwasher, washer & dryer, side by side refrigerator with water and ice in the door. The living area has flat screen cable TV, dvd player and stereo. There are carpeted bedrooms, (with a king, two queen sized beds and two roll away beds.) The over sized master bedroom has it's own TV, sitting area, huge paladin windows with a panoramic lake view, Master bath with jacuzzi, separate shower, twin sinks and a balcony for relaxing and taking in the views.

Everything you need has been provided to make your stay a pleasant one!

*Ten Good Reasons to Go To Possum Kingdom Lake Any Time of Year;

1.Listed as the best man-made lake in Texas according to Kirk Dooley’s “Book of Texas Best.”

2.The Hell’s Gate/Devils’ Island area is the best party cove in Texas.

3.Mardi Gras on Bourbon Street is the best winter celebration on the Brazos.

4.Trails for hiking, biking, and wildlife observation are all around the lake.

5.Don’t miss the annual Possumfest & BBQ Cook-Off the first weekend of October where almost everything but possum is being cooked!

6.Canoe or kayak along the John Graves Scenic Riverway below the dam or take an airboat ride up the Brazos River.

7.Watch the fireworks waterfall at Hell’s Gate during the Fourth of July celebration.

8.The best view by a dam site is at Observation Point located above the dam.

9.Anglers take your pick! You can fish for all kinds of bass, catfish, crappie, and even rainbow trout below the dam in winter.

10. It’s the Great Lake of Texas!

About Anna Blair

We started renting our home as a 'Vacation Home Rental' in 2015. We are retired and have a home in Fort Worth. When we are away we thought we would share our home with families that would love and respect our home as we do. Friends and family are what makes life rich, and each of our homes are filled with gatherings from our travels, good food and laughter. We designed the spacious home to utilize the beauty of the lake, the native trees, Palo Pinto mountain surround, and wildlife gathering spot. It's such a treat to see the herds of deer gathering in the evening by Sandy Beach!

Possum Kingdom will bring you back year after year. Noel and Anna Blair

Anna Blair purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Why Anna Blair chose Graford

This home undoubtedly has the best deep water views on the lake!

We are close to the end of the Peninsula in a secluded area, teaming with wildlife and nature. Our home is located on a point with panoramic views in every direction! We offer covered porch decks, stone patio with adirondack chairs, huge window views of the lake, and a fully equipped, almost new home and satellite wifi.

Our waterfront has 350 feet of private shoreline, and unlimited, natural shoreline to the left, since we are the last property. We have a fishing pier and our secluded wooded, hillside lot is 1/2 acre.

You will find peace and relaxation at our place, in comfortable surroundings. Nature lovers will find plenty of wildlife. We have deer, wild turkeys, humming birds and of course, there's lots of fish and water birds!

A new hiking trail was recently put in which goes to Sandy Beach on the left. Just a short hike through the woods to reach deep sand and a playground, picnic tables and the lake. Of course everyone can swim at our place as well.

We are close to several public boat launches and boat rental facilities, if you are into boating, be sure to check out the cliffs of Hell's Gate. The lake offers a vast variety of natural lake views.

This is a great place for a family vacation or a place to unwind, relax and take in the natural beauty!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

When we built this home in 2005, we turned the back of the house around so it faces the road. The true front faces the lake, and is much more attractive than the back but we did that so most of the windows would face the view. We have arched windows in the master with a beautiful lake view and windows all across the lake side. This is a secluded, quiet, beautiful and relaxing place!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here in April 2013 and had a great weekend. Anna responded very promptly and professionally to all questions and planning needs. The house was gorgeous and comfortable and very accessible to everything we needed within the area – lake, boat rental, golf, dining, grocery, etc. I would highly recommend.

Chateaux Blair

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay at this house and we, once again, had a great visit. The views of the lake from the back porch are just fantastic. We always enjoy the local hiking trails -especially when the weather is so perfect! The local grocery store (the Trading Post) is about 2 miles away and has just about everything you could need.

Chateaux Blair

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the Thanksgiving Holiday at Chateaux Blair. This was our third stay here and once we again had a terrific time. The 3 bedroom house is very nice and the view of the lake is fantastic. The new and improved (larger) porch was a great idea and we spent lots of time just sitting outside enjoying the view. The sunsets we amazing!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the nice review, Greg! It seems that God, in his infinite wisdom, paints the sky glorious colors as the Fall colors of nature subside. I'm glad you both enjoyed the sunsets, which are even more spectacular when reflected by the lake. I hope you continue to remember our place when you need a place to get away for awhile. :) Best Regards, Anna

Very nice house with great view. Great well equiped kitchen. Master suite with balconey enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

This a very nice lake house with great views and extensive balconies. The dock is somewhat primitive but functional. Good sand bass fishing off dock in early mornings ( it was very hot while we were there). We had a trailered 21 foot boat and there was no way to park or turn it around. We ended backing it back down Upper Burma road!

Owner's Response: Hi Charles, I'm glad you all enjoyed our place! I've heard from others that the fishing is better off of our dock than it is from a boat. I would attribute it to our secluded area..the fish must think they are safe there. :) Our turn around is large enough when we pull our 18' trailer, but it might take a bit of practice to turn a longer one. Please keep us in mind for future visits. We're adding a new rock patio in October. Best, Anna

Well beyond my expectations

  • 5 of 5

More secluded than I expected - which was perfect.

Better views and lakeside experience than I expected - which was perfect.

Bigger, nicer home and furnishings than I expected - which was perfect.

Will DEFINITELY lease this property again - and bring more family with me.

Great access to eating, took great tour around lake, great dinner at Wildcatter, Bonitaville, etc.

For a great place to relax, read, getaway, sleep, etc. - this is the place.

Great house with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house over one weekend and loved it. It's definitely bigger than the pictures show. The deck is fantastic and we loved watching the sunsets. House was well stocked with everything you need. Grocery store is about 10 minutes away and is also well stocked. We would definitely go back.

A network of Hiking trails have been completed, one of which is on our road. Turn right on the trail at the Trail- head and it's a short hike to Sandy Beach. Small children can play on the playground equipment, swim and play in the deep sand and gentle lake slope. Pack a picnic lunch, there are tables and grills.

Lots of deer and other wildlife abound (no hunting). P.K. is a great place to water ski, since the lake is 75 miles long! The Brazos River feeds the lake, and a short distance away are canoe rentals, where you can spend the day on the river.

Golfers can play at The Cliffs- one of the finest and most difficult golf courses in Texas and one of the most beautiful. The view of the cliffs and lake from the cliffs behind the club house is a must-see.

Or just stay at our home and relax, read, fish and/or swim. Watch the sea birds and deer, an occasional fox, wild turkey, etc., etc.

Come out and relax- you won't want to go home.

P.K. is approximately 75 miles west of Ft. Worth and the metroplex. Come out, sit under the stars and feel the stress slip away!
