Starr Mountain Ranch offers the future owner or investor a unique opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful and timeless properties in the region. Boasting the highest elevation in Smith county at 648’ above mean sea level, the ranch benefits from tremendous views along the tops of the multiple ridgelines in nearly every direction and is accentuated by nearly 275’ of elevation gain. The livestock improvements are exceptional, with new fencing around the entire boundary, and new cattle pens fed by nice traps and lane fences. The pastures vary from heavily wooded with cedar and oak, to mostly open and cleared, and multiple stock tanks are scattered across the property. If desired, there are several large lake sites that could be constructed by the buyer, as well as the potential of adding a newer and larger homesite near the existing home. Starr Mountain Ranch obeys the three rules of real estate: location, location, location. It is located near Winona immediately north of 1-20 with road frontage on three sides, and with easy access to Tyler via State HWY 271 (ten minutes), Longview via US HWY 271 or I-20 (fifteen minutes), Dallas via IH-20 (one hour and thirty minutes), or Houston via I-20 and US HWY 259 (three hours and forty-five minutes). The ranch is certainly a “path of progress” asset as Tyler’s growth continues to march outward. The ranch sits only six miles from the UT Health Center North Campus, which is nationally recognized and boasts a level IV trauma center. Starr Mountain Ranch allows the owner to enjoy ranching, hunting, and all of the recreation an east Texas ranch could offer, yet is also an investment that will yield dividends both experiential and tangible. With exceptional views, tons of wildlife, and great ranch amenities, Starr Mountain Ranch is an asset that will grow in value in the future. Seller financing available.
