This outstanding East Texas ranch offers high fenced hunting opportunities with great whitetail habitat, an enjoyable 5 +/- acres of fishing water, and a remarkable home on a hill with a view to it all.
(An additional 520 +/- high-fenced acres with two homes that adjoin this ranch are available by separate contract.)
The ranch is located in south central Anderson County, approximately 7 miles outside of Palestine. It is accessed by a deeded easement across a neighbor and is secluded and quiet. The drive is approximately 2 hours from Dallas, and 2.5 hours from Houston. It is accessed by paved Anderson County Road 153, which brings electricity and phone services to the ranch.
The home sits at an elevation of about 610’ that looks north towards the lake and has a wrap around porch with views in all directions. The area around the home and hill are manicured to offer the best views of sunsets and sunrises. Elevation changes of about 170′ make for great topographical features, and the property has good roads throughout the pines and hardwoods. The soils under the ranch are from the Cuthbert, Bowie, and Kirvin formations in the western Coastal Plain soil region, which are highly weathered and acidic and support pine-hardwood vegetation, typically characterized by loblolly pine.
The high-fence provides for great security, management of a whitetail herd, and the opportunity to bring in exotics for year round hunting. The 1+/- acre lake at the front of the property was stocked with catfish, and the 4.5+/- acre lake was stocked with bass.
There are over 3 miles of mostly galvanized high fence that surround the perimeter of the ranch. This game fence is in good condition.
The ranch style home on this ranch is in great condition and has been very well maintained.

The ranch also has a back up power propane generator that can supply power for the whole house, and a storm cellar.
There are two lakes on the property, with the largest being approximately 4.5 acres.
The ranch has community water (Slocum Water) and two water wells, one of which is metered, that service both the home and shop. The ranch gets an average of 40” of rainfall annually. The ranch is within the Neches and Trinity Valleys Groundwater Conservation District.
There is no production on the ranch, and the owner does not own any of the mineral estate.
There is one active easement on the ranch. It is a buried ATMOS gas line on the western edge.
