Own your own private lake in North Texas for a cool $24.5 million.
Hurry, all offers must be submitted by October 12.
Sometimes the lake is just so crowded, isn’t it? Flooded by noisy wake-boarders or brimming with pesky pontoon boats, the solace of a day on the lake is usually confined to those awake early enough to see their reflection on the smooth, un-churned surface. Instead of restricting your fishing or waterskiing or on-the-water activities to the hours surrounding sunrise, we've reeled in another option.
Valley Lake Ranch is a 2,245-acre property located about an hour north of Dallas. The lake itself comprises more than 1,000 surface acres, with private entrance points on each side, consistent lake levels, depths to approximately 38 feet, collections of largemouth bass, crappie, drum, and catfish, and “amazing water clarity,” according to Hortenstine Ranch Company, the brokerage firm. Additional features of the land include heavily wooded oak and elm forests, native pasture land for cattle grazing, wildlife including whitetail deer, feral hogs, bald eagles, dove, Rio Grande turkeys, bobcats, coyotes, and waterfowl, and a 2,771-foot landing strip.
Offers are being accepted until Friday, October 12, 2018. To learn more about Valley Lake Ranch’s history and why it’s for sale (the property is owned by Luminant, and the lake was created in the late 1950’s as a reservoir for its Valley Power Plant), contact Cash McWhorter, Casey Berley, or Blake Hortenstine with Hortenstine Ranch Company.
