This exceptionally beautiful 60.97 acre property perfectly reflects what makes Bosque County so very special, the rolling countryside with long vistas that rise to the crest of the Bosque County ridgetops...breathtaking, tranquil. The Funny Farm goes one step further as the southern border is the cool, crystal-clear Meridian Creek...deep enough to swim, kayak and fish. This property features a winding drive to the headquarters designed in the Santa Fe compound fashion with the main house, guest house and art studio graced within a masonry wall with 2 gated entrances so that it offers a cozy courtyard and pool without obstructing the views. The buildings are custom designed with an artistic eye that sought hand carved vigas from Bernalillo, NM to grace the porches. Senses soar with the artistic flair of this one-of-a-kind property. Funny Farm is a lifestyle of family, outdoor living and creativity. Clifton is known as the Norwegian Capital of Texas and takes great pride in the events that expound on that history. The region is filled with artists and the town showcases local talent via the Bosque Art Center, art galleries, and the many quaint restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops. Bosque County is the land of good neighbors and close family.  

The land is magnificent, scenic and productive. The 1800 feet of live creek is absolutely a jewel of an asset for this property with clear, running water offering fun recreational activities. The drive up appeal is beautiful from the moment you turn through the Funny Farm gate and begin the climb to the headquarters. A gravel drive and inviting landscaping welcomes guests. The appeal of the ranch has already captured your heart. The improvements are custom and one of a kind.  The 2600 SF home features 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths with recent updates. The expansive living, dining area and kitchen offers great views from many directions. The fireplace in the living room has warmed many cozy conversations. The kitchen area is flanked by an inviting island with sink, dishwasher and "cozy up to the bar" seating. A long, tiled countertop offers a cooktop range and ample workspace. An additional countertop between the oven, microwave and double-door refrigerator is utilized as the perfect coffee bar.  

Off of the kitchen is a large laundry room with additional pantry space. An outside door opens from the kitchen to the interior of the courtyard and is so convenient for entertaining.

A hallway leads from the kitchen to the spacious primary bedroom and bath, two other bedrooms and a second full bath.  The third bedroom has an outside door to the courtyard as well. The house has large closet spaces with additional storage.

Fabulous porches wrap around the west and the south side of the main dwelling, offering pleasing views and outdoor living space. The hand carved vigas supporting the porches were brought in from Bernalillo, NM, creating a southwest ambience to the improvements.

The three structures are enclosed with a masonry fence that offers 2 custom wooden gated entrances.  The 703 SF guest house features a huge downstairs combination living and bedroom with full bath with another spacious bedroom upstairs. Windows from the guest house offers unobstructed views of the Bosque county countryside. With two entrances guests have easy access to the pool and patio.

In the center of the courtyard is a custom pool with water features and patio space.  The 1325 SF art and design studio is nearby and creates additional entertainment opportunities with a long porch, large open space, full kitchen and bath. The art studio is totally FUNspace the owners utilized for designing, creating, painting!  The  The space is equipped with a large screen tv  and sofas for "hanging out".
