LUXURIOUS LAKEFRONTS AT LONG COVE What’s New, What’s Happening, What’s Now


DSD 18


“There’s nothing like Long Cove at any lake I’ve seen. It is just a special and safe place,” says homeowner Jason Kulas. Kulas and his family are just one of dozens of families who have discovered the treasure of Long Cove, the dream develop- ment of Don McNamara, a suc- cessful Dallas real estate devel- oper. Located on Cedar Creek Lake, just over an hour south of Dallas, the development offers a respite from hectic city life and an opportunity for owners to unwind and reconnect with nature, all without losing any of the benefits of a refined lifestyle. “We’re a family of five with a wide range of ages and prefer- ences, but there’s something for


everyone. This morning I got up and played basketball with my son, went on a long walk, took some bread and fed the turtles in the pond,” says Kulas. The full-service resort-like


retreat is a perfect location for those seeking a second home. Amenities include boat valet and concierge services, paddle boarding, kayaking, a swim club, fish and canoe pond, driv- ing range, biking trails, tennis courts, fitness center, amphithe- ater and more. The helpful staff is on call 24/7 to accommodate any homeowner’s request. McNamara spent 10 years planning and developing the family-friendly lake community— modeled after the popular Florida destinations Watercolor


and Seaside. At Long Cove buyers can build custom second homes on plots offered for waterside cottages, lakefront homes and family compounds, all finished to the owners’ spec- ifications.


“I have invested in Long Cove on both personal and business levels because I don’t believe there is another product out there like this family-oriented community,” says Mark Molthan, a homebuilder for Platinum Homes. “It has a truly whole- some nature which is a thing of the past in most places. At Long Cove kids can jump on their bikes and not come home until dark, and their parents don’t have to think twice about it.” Covering over 1,200 acres,


this sanctuary of pristine natural beauty has a number of plots for family compounds and homesites available as well as spec homes. Buyers can select from four Waterside Cottage floor plans and seven Lakefront or Family Compound home styles, including Craftsman, Rustic Shingle, Low Country, Ranch, Austin Stone, Hill Country Contemporary, or a hybrid. “Long Cove gives us a place we can go as a family, slow down and really connect. It is a place that provides a great bal- ance of community and family,” explains Kristie Raymond about her family’s experience at Long Cove. “Long Cove has become our true neighborhood.” long-cove.com, 214-220-9992
