 Overview
 Description
The property appears quite large. There were originally two entries according to satellite, but it looks like the floods washed out the front entrance that would have been off of the frontage road a couple miles from the main house. I did not walk the entire property, only where the visible structures were. The satellite shows a clear path right up to the home along the RR tracks. However there is a concrete barrier right at the tracks so you will have to walk over the rail (which is very active, BTW, so park accordingly) and walk up to the home. It's a very short walk. Be very cautious of the wildlife out there. I've never seen so many wasps as I did there last October, and the high grass is perfect for snakes and poison ivy, etc. You can expect your usual Texas culprits on this property.

  •  Interesting Features
    I've been to this place three times just to photograph the front of the main house. It also has an RV on site, which I believe is a first for me on an explore. The interior is not noteworthy, IMO, but there are many personal effects that remain. Unfortunately, the weather, local teenagers, and scrappers have done a number on the main house. The barn is probably three or four times the size of the house, and is somewhat interesting and less vandalized. There are a couple smaller structures and a grain silo on the property as well.
     Security Measures
  • Demolished (2018). DA. There are no measures. However, the road dead ends at the RR tracks directly in front of this home. The only other legitimate person on this road is the neighboring electric company, so it will be obvious where you're going during business hours, so I suggest going at night or on a weekend.

     History
    I could not find anything on this home except that the prior resident's name was Santiago Sanchez (a prescription bottle told me his name and that he was diabetic). According to the most recent car inspections and registrations, he likely left around 2008. Most of his belongings appear to have been left behind, but the inside of the home has been heavily vandalized and damaged badly by the weather. Not much of interest is inside, but the home's exterior is very photogenic. There are also several other structures, an RV, and a couple scrapped vehicles on the property as well. It's well secluded but will not likely stay standing for much longer. This property is in the most highly sought after area in North Texas. I would not expect it to make it through the year at the region's current rate of expansion.
     Media Coverage
    Nothing specific. Generally speaking, the explosive influx of the local population suggests the first or second highest annual population growth in the Nation (depends on who you ask). The result is that the majority of these farm homes and agricultural lands are quickly becoming extinct. Homes like this one are demolished daily around here, sadly.
     Future Plans
    This location has been demolished. DA 1/2018
    A neighborhood with some generic homes and a generic name, like "The Villas of Frisco," will one day magically pop up where this house once stood. There will be a 7-Eleven with a strategically positioned Redbox in the parking lot as well, according to my psychic premonition.
