Quail Valley Ranch
The distinct cultural and geographic area of East Texas is affectionately referred to as the "Pine Curtain." This area of the piney woods is known for its fields of green native grasses, lush vegetation, numerous lakes and ponds, and of course, the tall trees that provide the namesake for this area. The Quail Valley Ranch perfectly encapsulates all that is special about this part of the state.
Located just eight miles from Athens and under an hour and a half from downtown Dallas, the 123-acre Quail Valley Ranch is situated in southeastern Henderson County, along the famous stretch of Highway 175 that also leads to the Barefoot Ranch and other notable properties in this region.
A 17-acre deep-water lake is the centerpiece of this property, spanning over 500 feet in width and over 1000 feet in length. Towering native hardwood trees line the banks on the east side of the lake, and lush bright green pastures surround the waterway, offering up spectacular views of the surrounding land and wildlife. A covered dock with two boat lifts and entertainment deck stands on the west side of the water, a feature that provides enjoyment and access to the water. Fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and boating are popular pursuits for owners and visitors alike.
This impressive view across the pond also offers up a vantage point to take in the stately 6,000 square foot home that is flanked by a three-car garage and three-car covered parking area. A lovely pool overlooks the lake below and provides yet another opportunity for outdoor recreation with friends and family. The spacious decks, patios, and porches adjacent to this home offer exceptional vantage points to absorb the beautiful surroundings of this home. Blooming dogwoods, azaleas, and crape myrtles bloom in the springtime, giving a splash of color to be enjoyed from these exterior spaces.
Inside, the home boasts multiple bedrooms and living spaces, and is decorated in a rustic, classic style, and features three fireplaces throughout the expansive floorplan. Exposed trusses and wood floors are two of the architectural features that stand out within these walls.
In addition to the main home, a second foreman's home is located along the county road on the west side of the property. And paddocks, barns, and arenas provide the infrastructure for equine operations, giving the ranch exceptional potential for horseback rides, steer roping, and other pursuits.
The ranch improvements are surrounded by well-manicured fields dotted with hardwood trees, and other areas contain native brush species, providing habitat and vegetation for wildlife. These woody areas come alive with color in the spring, and later in the year, a kaleidoscope of color is revealed as the leaves change.
