Luxury Ranch Roundup: East Texas Ranches That’ll Put a Spring in Your Step

Saddle up, folks, it’s time for our luxury ranch roundup! This week we found three sweet East Texas ranches that are among the best on the market right now. From a nationally renowned Longhorn cattle operation in Mineola, to a picturesque farm with bass stocked lake in Brenham, to an equestrian ranch with a reputation for breeding world champion paint horses in Winona, we’ve rustled up some winners – all ranging from $1.85 million up to $6.75 million.

NATIONALLY RENOWNED LONGHORN CATTLE OPERATION ON 367 ACRES

 

 

Best known as T BAR W Ranch, this exclusive rural and recreational property has earned a reputation far and wide for its Longhorn cattle operation, and now it could be yours to the tune of $6.75 million. With over 367 acres of pristine pasture and top-of-the-line equestrian facilities, including a 6,215-square-foot, 12-stall, European-inspired horse barn, it’s the quintessential East Texas ranch.

Adjacent to the horse barn you’ll enjoy a two story ranch office, tack room, exercise room, full bath, laundry, and heated and cooled three-car garage. The property affords three private and lovingly maintained residences, plus an additional ranch manager’s cottage. Two spring fed lakes, a working longhorn cattle pen, elevated sale ring, and 12-acre polo field take this East Texas ranch over the top.
