I love finding spectacular homes for sale in the area, even if I can't come close to affording them. However, when it's an amazing home, in an amazing location and a home that a budding Team USA track star lived in during his childhood I have a tendency to take a bit more of an interest in it.

Enter the childhood home of Norman Grimes Jr, UIL champion for Canyon High, Big 12 champ for Texas Tech and member of USA Track & Field. You can see one of his track uniforms along with some medals mounted on the wall there. Pretty impressive right? That's not the only thing that's impressive, because the house itself and location is simply amazing.

Nestled away high on a hill in River Falls, this 5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath, 4200+ square foot home provides spectacular views that are unmatched and unobstructed. You can take in the amazing views from the balcony that wraps from the front of the house to the back. It's absolutely breathtaking.

Once inside, the architecture is beautiful. High vaulted ceilings in the main room with a stone fireplace that extends to the top of the ceiling. Beautiful hardwood floors and a ton of windows complete the room. The views you get from the front room alone are enough to sell me on the house. You can see for literal miles.

For all you chefs, there is a spectacular kitchen complete with chef style equipment, granite countertops and top of the line appliances. Oh yeah, there's also two dining areas with those views we keep on talking about. That's dining in style.

All the bedrooms in the house are very well sized, plenty of room in each one of them. Nobody will feel slighted with whatever room they get put in. Each one is a palace in it's own right. In case you were wondering, yes all the bedrooms come with the incredible view.
