Located just minutes east of Glen Rose, TX, at the “Top of the Hill Country,” lies the Twin Lake Ranch. The ranch sits high up on a hill, with majestic views up and down the valley, including several locations where you can actually see the Glen Rose courthouse. This incredible property has historically been operated as a high fenced game ranch but has endless potential. A property this close to the DFW metroplex with all of these features will not last long.
The property is located at the northwest quadrant of US HWY 67 and County Road 308, approximately 1 hour 20 minutes southwest of Dallas, TX, and just under an hour southwest of Fort Worth, TX in the northeastern corner of Somervell County.
The ranch has approximately 2200 Ft of frontage on HWY 67, and over 2,500 feet of frontage on the west side of County Road 308, and 1,000 feet of frontage on the south side of County Road 308. Primary access is through two code-accessed gates on HWY 67.
Twin Lake Ranch features some truly breathtaking “Texas Hill Country” topography, views, and vegetation. Elevation on the property ranges from approximately 780 +/- feet above sea level at the highest point, to approximately 710 +/- feet above sea level at the lowest point. The pastures are rich in native grasses and vegetation, with excellent examples of live oak, red oak, and cedar elms trees throughout the whole property.
The surface water on the ranch is particularly good. There are two large (approximately 6 +/- AC) lakes, with a nice seasonal creek running through the middle of the property. All of the improvements are serviced by water wells.
There are two homes (a log cabin/lodge and a manufactured home) a large barn, storage barn, and small office.
The main house is a 3BR/3.5 BA log cabin/lodge with metal roof and wrap around porch on three sides. The two-story great room has numerous windows, wood beams, and wooden vaulted ceiling and a large river rock fireplace and hearth. The kitchen overlooks the great room and has a large island and counter that will allow at least twelve people to eat comfortably. The kitchen has custom cabinets and all stainless-steel appliances. The dining room is separate and has a barn wood half wall and an iron chandelier. There is a powder bath for guests. Floors in the living area are slate/tile, walls are wood paneling or sheetrock, and ceiling is wood or sheetrock with lights.

There is central HVAC with two zones and numerous ceiling fans.
The in-ground swimming pool has stone and tile coping and concrete deck.
The guest house is a 3BR/2BA modular home with wood siding, stone and masonry skirt and metal roof. There is a covered porch on the front and the back, and a large stone patio under seven exceptionally large live oaks in the back.
The perimeter of the ranch is high fenced. There is some cross fencing in place in other parts of the ranch.
The ranch is well suited for recreation and hunting. Enjoy riding ATVs on beautiful trails throughout the property, fishing in the stock tanks, or relishing a sunset while watching wildlife from a bow stand. The ranch is currently being operated as a high fenced game ranch. In the past, the sellers have sold hunts on the property, and there is excellent potential to do this in the future.
