A Texas ranch of more than 2,500 acres was recently put on the market for $16 million.
The North Paluxy Ranch is approximately 2,520 acres of farmland nestled neatly within the northern Texas Hill Country in the heart of Erath County.
Located about a two-hour drive from downtown Dallas, the ranch is along County Roads 128 and 130 and about 12 miles north of Stephenville.
The property features a sunset view overlooking the North Paluxy River, two water wells, a two-story main home, rolling hills, and a “wonderful mix of habitat and tree cover well-suited for running cattle and attracting wildlife,” according to a press release from Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
The legacy North Paluxy Ranch has been in the same family for multiple generations and supports a range of ranching operations. The 2,500-acre, $16 million property primarily serves as a working cattle and horse ranch, with 70% of the land consisting of rich pastures, hay fields, and towering hardwoods offering thick cover for the wildlife.
The two-story main home sits on a high point near the edge of a prominent bluff and is approximately 2,200 square feet with three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a 3-car garage, and a large covered patio with a 360-degree view of the property, according to the news release.
Adjacent to the main home is a 3,000-square-foot barn with an attached two-bedroom apartment quarter.
The Dallas-based real estate firm Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty brought in ranch experts David Burgher and Harlan Ray of Burgher-Ray Ranch Group to bring the property to market.
“North Paluxy Ranch is well-suited for hunting and recreation, including riding horses or driving ATVs on many of the trails throughout the ranch,” the news release said. “The diversity of the habitat throughout the property provides excellent cover for white-tailed deer and turkey as well as excellent fishing on either of the main lakes.”
This North Paluxy Ranch is northwest of Dinosaur Valley State Park. The Paluxy River feeds into the Glen Rose area and is the focal point of of the dinosaur tracks found in the river bed of the park.
