Description: This is an extraordinary opportunity to own one of the last true classic Texas cattle operations located in the Central Great Plains Eco-Region. With approximately 31,739 acres located near Electra, Texas in the heart of big ranch country, the ranch is comprised of two separate physical locations, the Electra pastures (Triangle and Lakeland Ranches) boasting the majority of the ranch acreage at 28,011 +/- contiguous acres, and the Lake Diversion pastures (Best Ranch) located a few miles to the south at 3,728 acres.
This ranch shares fence lines and borders the legendary 514,000 acre Waggoner Ranch both at the Electra location and at the Lake Diversion location. Access can be had from U.S. Highway 287 on the North, Texas Highway 25 on the East, and numerous Farm-to-Market and County Roads (both paved and gravel). The Lake Diversion location is a special place with fantastic panoramic views of the lake and surrounding terrain. There are several promontory points that would serve well as building locations for an executive retreat or corporate lodge.
The northernmost portions of the ranch located on the south side of U.S. Highway 287 are mostly well-maintained pastures with a predominately gentle rolling terrain that could make great row-crop. Several home locations exist that would provide edge-of-the earth views in the middle of thousands of acres. Quick access can be had via Highway 287 from Wichita Falls (20 miles) and Dallas Fort Worth (125 miles).
