Lake and Land Views at Lone Star Ranch
February 5th, 2014 | by The Update
A short drive east of the Metroplex is the 491-acre Lone Star Ranch, a premier equestrian and cattle ranch, on the north shore of Lake Bob Sandlin. The lake and nearby state park feature a variety of wildlife and birds, including eagles nesting during winter months.
The property has three homes, including an 8,250-square-foot primary residence, making the Lone Star Ranch both a great commercial opportunity and a perfect retreat for family and friends. The main home has four bedrooms, seven baths, a study and a home theater. It also includes four barns, three shops, dog kennels, a solid wood 50-foot round pen, an electric horse walker and a two-slip boathouse.
With panoramic views of the lake, ponds and a negative-edge saltwater pool, the home is well designed inside and out. Tall, double windows bathe the large rooms in light. A covered, wraparound patio offers an excellent place to unwind and enjoy living on this unique ranch.
The Lone Star Ranch at 40 CR SE 4210 in Mount Vernon is being offered for $7,988,000.
Ideal for both horse and cattle raising operations, the ranch features a sandy loam soil, extensive Coastal Bermuda pastures and numerous lakes and ponds. With a rock exterior, several interior rock walls and extensive woodwork, the home has a sophisticated rural feel. Wrought-iron chandeliers grace the dining room and kitchen. Two rock fireplaces warm a great room and den.
The kitchen with a large island and wood cabinetry features an eight-burner, stainless-steel cooktop and a double oven. A butler’s pantry and wine closet make entertaining a delight. The master suite has a bedroom with large windows that overlook the pool and lake. The bath has a separate tub and shower amid beautiful wood cabinets. For the car enthusiast the garage has car lifts that will house eight vehicles.
