Luxury at Eagle Mountain Lake
There are numerous parks and hiking trails located around the lake and the many hills and bluffs surrounding it offer beautiful 360 degree views. Eagle Mountain Park, located on the western shores of the lake is a gorgeous 400-acre conservation area created primarily for hiking and recreation with over 5 miles of well-maintained hiking trails. The trail system is made up of six separate trails highlighted by a short quarter mile “Overlook Trail” with great views of Eagle Mountain Lake.
Eagle Mountain isn’t generally considered a destination lake for fisherman, but those who know will tell you the fishing here is a well kept secret. With plenty of bass, catfish, and crappie chances are great you will catch a lot of fish and some of them might just be wall hangers. In fact, the lake record largemouth bass is 11.65 pounds!
The lake has a large and active sailing and power boating community with many dedicated water skiers and wakeboarders. The epicenter of the sailing activities is the Fort Worth Boat Club; however, the Boat Club is by no means the only game in town. There are several marinas around the lake with fuel stations and boats for rent. Despite its proximity to the greater Fort Worth area, Eagle Mountain is rarely crowded. There’s always plenty of room for skiing and boating.
Another thing Eagle Mountain is known for is the fabulous lake homes that dot its shoreline. The lake was created by damming of the West Fork of the Trinity River in 1932. Shortly thereafter folks started building homes and residential development has continued non-stop from the very beginning. While some of those beautiful old homes are still there, some truly spectacular modern homes have been built too. 8900 Crest Ridge is one of those.
This extraordinary waterfront home in a gated community features five spacious en-suite bedrooms, multiple living areas, a stately study with floor to ceiling bookshelves, a theatre, and majestic panoramic views of Eagle Mountain Lake. The very nicely appointed chef’s kitchen opens onto a large family room with a fabulous wet bar, and the many open spaces indoors and out make this home perfect for entertaining friends and family in a unique and fun environment. With a private two-story boat dock and a resort style backyard that features meticulous landscaping, a heated pool with spa, and a putting green, this home is the envy of Eagle Mountain Lake.
