Attention aviation enthusiasts — ever wished you could walk out your back door and hop in your Cessna 182 to zip off to work? Well now you can, at Granbury’s fly-in community Pecan Plantation.

The 4,200-acre, master-planned development is located ~40 miles southwest of Fort Worth on what used to be the largest pecan orchard in the country. Managed by Patten Properties, the development boasts amenities across earth, water, and air.


Aviation enthusiasts can store their personal planes in on-site private hangars.

High-flying features

Pecan Plantation just added a second airpark. The community has two 3,000-ft paved runways where residents can land private planes — and then taxi them to personal hangars on each lot.

The community is divided into ~3,200 residential lots and has 2,500 homes and counting. New phases of housing are set for development along the newly opened Landings Airpark.

With access to concrete taxiways and a self-service fuel station, the lots range 0.3-7+ acres + start at $179,900. Future homes must be a minimum of 2,000 sqft and can be constructed by any home builder, but don’t have a construction time frame.


In addition to airparks, explore golf courses, parks, and water amenities.
