The 211.11+/- acre Lake Ray Roberts Ranch has been owned and operated for many years by a family that loves cattle and horses. This ranch has scenic views of the countryside, green pastures, area ponds, and has frontage on Lake Ray Roberts.
Located in the southwestern portion of Grayson County, the property is approximately 3.3 miles northwest of Tioga, TX. The physically street address is 360 Pop Noah Road, Collinsville, TX, on the east side of Pop Noah Road with frontage on Pop Noah Road and County Road 292. It adjoins the Corp of Engineers land and Lake Ray Roberts on the eastern side of the property.
The property is currently used for agricultural and recreational purposes with cattle grazing on the property. Good land management practices are in place, to help conserve and protect the soil, water and air resources of this ranch, and the land is in good condition and has been well maintained.
The property has excellent water features with 11 bodies of water located on the property ranging in size from less than one acre to just over four acres in size. Additional surface water includes the frontage on Lake Ray Roberts, a 29,350 AC reservoir. There are multiple draws and tributaries running through the property as well. The main residence and the barns are serviced by the Woodbine Water Supply Corporation. There is also a well on the property.
The elevation of the property is varied with ravines and hills typical of the area, and it ranges from 700+/- feet above sea level at the highest point of the property near the residence with the lowest point of the property 640+/- feet above sea level below the dam of the largest lake. These measurements were taken from a USGS topographical map online.
This custom built 3,037 SF residence is ideal for year-round living. Sitting east to west, on the highest hill top in the area, the home was angled so that there is always a cool breeze blowing across the front and back porches. These deep porches, which run the entire length of the house, provide plenty of room for rocking chairs from which to enjoy a beautiful full view of an early morning sunrise or a late afternoon sunset that North Texas is known for. The house sits back from the road behind a beautiful gated entrance on an all-weather road. There are floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the first floor, allowing an abundance of light to fill the home and from which to enjoy the scenic views of the pastures and adjacent ponds. The open floor plan features a spacious living room with built-in bookshelves, a vaulted ceiling, and woodburning fireplace. A well-laid out kitchen is situated between the formal dining room, breakfast room, and utility/mud room with plenty of built-in cabinets for storage. Off the breakfast room is an office that could be converted to a sunroom. The downstairs master bedroom has a large bathroom with dual sinks and vanities, a jetted tub, and separate shower. An adjacent bedroom could be used as a sitting room or a guest room. French doors open from the master bedroom out to the back porch. Upstairs are two guest room suites. A Porte cochere connects the oversized two-car garage with the house. The area around the house is watered by an underground irrigation system that includes the garden and mature fruit trees.
There are two 3,600 sf barns on the ranch with water and electricity, which are accessible from the paved road that runs from the front gate by the main residence out to the barns. Rough-cut roads and trails can be found throughout, providing good access to the property and various pastures. Fencing on the property includes perimeter fencing and cross fencing. All the fencing and gates are in good condition and there are seven different pastures, as well as a small trap around the barns and a house pasture.
The ranch has good frontage on Lake Ray Roberts, which provides recreational and hunting opportunities due to abundant vegetation and tree cover surrounding the lake attracting the area wildlife. Views of the lake are limited due to the Corp of Engineers regulations regarding clearing of vegetation; however, this provides for excellent fishing and duck hunting, an abundance of deer, and other native wildlife on the ranch. The Corp allows walking paths that lead down to the lake to be built to allow exploring and fishing. There is also fishing available in the many stocked tanks across the ranch.
There is no oil/gas production on the ranch at this time. Contact broker for more details.
