Is the sky really the limit when the neighborhood has its own landing strip, or is that what it takes for commutes from Richmond? That’s where a Covey Trails property, located out FM 1093 near FM 1463, took off at $1.2 million in its listing over the weekend. Hangar (top) and hangouts (middle) are harbingers of the adventurous array — and many, many murals — found within the unassuming house, which previously kept its active inner life to itself. But now lookie here:
Old Glory and Out of Africa mix in (and over) the entry (above). And what of the family room? Here, if the view of the landing strip doesn’t provide enough passing planes to entertain, the overhead artwork sees to it that there’s always some FAA non-compliant maneuvering nearby:
Faux distressed walls and ceiling sections keep a dining area as rustic as a section of nearby lanai — that’s all fired up with a frontier motif:

and its no-fly bar zone (or is that no bar fly zone?).
A tree of life sprawls above one type of pool area:
In the master suite, enhanced by a waterfall-and-woods scene, there’s an overhead television screen. The master bath is steps away . . .
where the natural world has provided several of the finishes, including a tub carved in stone . . .
and sinks of petrified wood:
The 4,850-sq.-ft. home has 3 secondary bedrooms, 3 and a half bathrooms, and a few more murals:
Geological formations defy gravity in the exercise-and-game room upstairs:
A brick-sided Tiki bar sits between pool room and pool playground . . .
with double waterfalls, a handy flame pit . . .
and a really wet wet bar:
Here’s the approach to the air park‘s 3,000-ft. runway, which slices between homes fronting the aviation community’s 2 streets:
The air-conditioned hangar, decorated with aerial inventory, is big enough for 4 actual planes and some cars:
The structure includes a workshop . . .
and quarters with a living-dining room, kitchen, bed, and bath (and a mural):
