TK Ridge Ranch

$2,679,300 Tyler, TX 458± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

TK Ridge Ranch, prominently perched near the midpoint between Tyler and Kilgore, offers an expansive 457± acres brimming with potential for investors, developers, or recreational enthusiasts seeking to capitalize on future possibilities.

With the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) poised to initiate highway improvements, the imminent clearing of the right-of-way (R.O.W.) will unveil the ranch's features: rolling hills adorned with hardwoods, creeks lined with pines, and diverse landscapes stretching across both sides of its mile-long Highway 31 frontage.

The ranch's ecosystem is a haven for the typical wildlife of Smith County, supported by a rich mix of forbs, shrubs, plants, and trees. These natural resources foster a thriving habitat for native game, benefiting from the edge and transition areas that are hallmarks of uneven-aged timber management.

Diverse in topography, the ranch's elevation spans from approximately 400 feet above mean sea level (MSL) to 582 feet, creating an array of scenic vistas and unique elevation features on either side of the highway. Access is currently facilitated by curb cuts on each side, with any future modifications subject to TXDOT's approval to align with their standards.
Distinctive in character, the south side of the ranch, approximately 161 acres, features a prominent ridge and expanses of comparatively level land. In contrast, the north side, encompassing 296 acres, is characterized by a dynamic landscape of hills and valleys. Prairie Creek and Jackson Creek serve as natural drainage systems for the western and northeastern portions of the ranch, respectively. Despite its well-drained terrain, the property contains less than five acres within FEMA's 100-year Zone A floodplain designation, underscoring its advantageous topography.

TK Ridge Ranch is a rare find, presenting 457± acres of predominantly wooded timberland, dissected by Highway 31 in the eastern region of Smith County. The property boasts an elevation change of over 180 feet, offering expansive views and breathtaking sunsets. With about one mile of highway frontage on both sides, it stands as a premier investment opportunity for those drawn to its recreational and aesthetic potential.
