Hey oh, we’re again in Abilene for at this time’s function. It’s a killer cluster of properties – a LEGENDARY set of short- and mid-term leases known as Sayles Ranch. It’s not an actual ranch, however there’s no cause for me to elucidate that when the proprietor, creator, and visionary Terry Browder is a little bit of a poet.
“As you will have found out by now, the Sayles Ranch is just not actually a ranch in any respect, however it’s a idea — a digital actuality. Oh sure, it’s an enclave of lovely homes — a spot the keep while you’re in Abilene, however, hopefully, it’s extra,” Browder informed CandysDirt.com. “It’s a particular place that was born of my love of West Texas, my love of Abilene, and my want to share a lot of the sweetness, aesthetics, and historical past of this nice a part of Texas with folks such as you!”
Sayles is a set of eight properties, every with a distinct theme and every stuffed with acceptable furnishings, high-end ending touches, and truthfully a few of the most inventive design components I’ve seen these days. I believe one of the simplest ways to do that is simply to name out every dwelling and what makes it so freaking cool.
Additionally, this isn’t an invite to guide one in all these dialog items. It’s an invite to purchase all of them. They’re at the moment listed on the market with John Hill of Barnett & Hill for a simple breezy $1.9 million. Consider you’re shopping for eight properties — every absolutely furnished — and also you’re additionally inheriting the Sayles Ranch title, model, and URL. Looks as if a steal.

Each inch of wall in Downton Abbey is “coated with the backs of three,000 classic legislation books from the legislation library of an area, 100-year-old legislation agency.”
The place’s the open-mouth emoji while you want it?

Hey, no matter floats your MCM boat.
Cottage Clare, 942 Amarillo
This three-bedroom, two-bathroom dwelling is likely one of the bigger ones within the Sayles Ranch portfolio. It’s a charmer and named after the proprietor’s daughter, Clare.
The finish-out is a bit softer, and the furnishings is a bit more ornate. It positively skews female and that’s why it’s the proper rental for any and all girlfriend weekends.
Dance Corridor, 1918 S. 9th Avenue
This two-bedroom, one-bathroom, ground-floor rental was Dottie Botkin’s Ballet Studio within the Nineteen Fifties. How freaking cute is that? It may also have my MOST favourite ending touches — a headboard made out from the turquoise doorways of a 1957 Chevy pickup truck, a 30-foot wall coated in blue and turquoise guide covers, and a kitchen backsplash made out of two,700 pennies. SO FUN.
Falling Star Lodge, 1002 Amarillo
She’s a cute little three-bedroom, two-bathroom Craftsman cottage with the most effective title origin tales. In 2006, proper earlier than buy, a meteorite fell within the yard. So now Falling Star Lodge is just not solely a rental but additionally an area legend.
Inside, the décor is rustic, however the furnishings are high-end — additional comfortable mattresses and plush towels. Whee. It’s the most effective of each.
Sayles Ranch, 1001 Sayles Avenue

It’s rustic, it’s barn-like, there are plank flooring, and the “patina of the unique, yellow pine partitions and ceilings are complemented by a persimmon-colored leather-based smooth …” I informed you Browder was a poet.
This one is a comfortable little cutie that I’d need all to myself, although it technically sleeps 4.
The Hideout, 1002 1/2 Amarillo
Wait, the place’s the deal with? Ain’t none.
“The Hideout is situated on the alley between The Sayles Ranch and The Falling Star Lodge.” It has a non-public courtyard outlined by vintage doorways imported from Previous Mexico.
