About Dale Fortenberry
About Dale Fortenberry Jr.
I traveled the world 100 nights per year for 25 years in my previous sales position. I have stayed in every type of hotel and bed and breakfast you can imagine during that time. I have taken the best of my experiences and tried to replicate them into these homes. We used only the finest things when furnishing the ranch. 400 thread count sheets, luxuriously thick terry towels, makeup remover wipes, pillow top or memory foam mattresses, the list goes on and on.
Dale Fortenberry Jr. purchased this Estate in 1993
Why Dale Fortenberry Jr. chose Smithwick
This is my family ranch. The larger home on the hill was my parents and the other home belonged to my grandmother. I have remodeled them extensively with all the latest amenities. They sit on 55 acres so it is peaceful and secluded. My nearest neighbor is my cousin. We have incredible 25 mile hilltop views in every direction from the main house. The 6000 square foot deck is perfect for weddings, dances, reunions, etc.
What makes this Estate unique
We have an incredible amount of room. The main house is nearly 4000 sq ft, and the deck is about 6000 sq ft. There are seven bedrooms in the main house plus a game room with a pool table. The smaller house has a game room as well with a pool table and a foosball table. Lots of amenities are nearby including horseback riding, and off road adventure park for 4 wheelers and motorcycles. Longhorn Cavern, several golf courses, boating, are all nearby. Hiking at Balcones National Wildlife Refuge is literally around the corner. My other business is Heart of Texas Wine Tours, so wine tours are almost always available. The hill country of Texas is the #2 wine tourism destination in America right behind Napa Valley.
