The Lakehurst Ranch is among the finest estate properties in East Texas. Located only 65 miles from Downtown Dallas and just a few miles south of Canton, TX, this breathtaking 415 acre Gentleman’s
Ranch boasts an opulent 7,231 square foot main house with the finest furnishings. The main residence sits on the high point of the property, overlooking the hay meadows and large lake. A tree-lined paved
drive way with white pipe fence leads you to the main house. Driving through the property, you can’t help but feel right at home as you are looking over the pastures and see the true beauty that Lakehurst
Ranch has to offer.
The main house, built in 1985 and since updated over the last few years, is in impeccable condition. The house consists of 4 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 2 half baths, 3 living areas, and 2 dining areas. The
large living room, which features two sitting areas and a grand piano, is highlighted by a large fireplace. Flowing off the living room is the enclosed sun room, lined with windows to bring the outside beauty
inside. Looking out these windows, you have a wonderful view of the property. Located just off the sun room is perhaps the best feature of the residence, the large covered back patio equipped with an
outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and several large seating areas. The views of the sunset from the back patio are breathtaking. Looking to the west off the patio you have views of the rolling pastures and beautiful
Along with the main residence there is an additional house on the ranch that is currently being used as a rental but could also be used as an onsite ranch manager’s house.
The improvements on the ranch are not only tastefully done but are 100% functional. From the pipe fencing to the quality of the shop, cattle barn, and horse barn, the owner has spared no expense in
improving and maintaining the property to keep it in pristine condition.
Lakehurst ranch is a cattleman’s dream. The multiple pastures and the layout of the ranch make for a great cattle operation. The pastures on the ranch are set up to rotate cattle through the ranch at different times of year, allowing for maximum forage growth. Rotating cattle around the ranch also allows several pastures to be cut for hay on a yearly basis. Complementing the cattle operation are two
shops, cattle barn and working facilities, and horse barn. Lakehurst Ranch has the ideal location and setup to become a first-class horse operation. The tree lined drive and white pipe fencing gives the feel
of the Kentucky horse farms.
Located on the property are several good sized fishing ponds. The highlight of the ranch is the large 14± acre lake equipped with boat dock. The boat dock contains a boat slip, covered seating area and storage rooms. Fishing on the lake is excellent. White tailed deer and other native wildlife species are seen on a regular basis and are often viewed from the patio in the early mornings and evenings, crossing the
pasture and along the tree line.
Lakehurst Ranch is located 65 miles east of Dallas, 15 miles north of Athens, and 8 miles south of Canton, home of the world famous First Monday trade show.
