Sotheby's International Realty - Athens, TX

A treasure in East Texas. This ranch is a very rare offering of the perfect sized ranch that provides a sanctuary from the outside world without being too large.

The pastures and landscape have been highly improved ensuring the coastal bermuda is lush each year. Another aspect of this ranch are its high-end recreational and wildlife refuge areas. Deer, fowl, and fish are managed carefully for optimal hunting and viewing. The ranch has served as a nature lover’s paradise for a family with many interests. Owners and guests alike have participated in the day-to-day cattle working on horseback alongside the cattle dogs. Sweeping views of the valley below while overlooking the stunning large lake and surrounding hills are breathtaking -- sure to please the most discerning land buyers.
