    This property in Cresson, just 25 miles southwest of Fort Wort, is described as a country club for motoring enthusiast. People who don't live in the subdivision can become a member.

    When the owner Jack Farr first purchased the property 20 years ago it was only a racetrack. The houses started to come in the early 2000’s. Farr tells us, there are plans to build more homes on the property.

    The Villas at Motorsport Ranch is a place you can go to satisfy that need for speed.

    "But it’s really the unique location. There’s only a handful of homes on the track that have an unobstructed view," Kwan said.

    Kwan just sold a home on the property, one of only a handful that is surrounded by the nearly two miles of track.

    "It’s the proximity to the unobstructed view to a race track," Kwan said.
