Ranch of the Week: More “Martha Stewart” Than “Field and Stream,” This Upshur County Ranch is a Dream

Laurel Oaks Home

So, not everyone wants a gritty city getaway with a log cabin and a cooler of Lone Star on the porch. Some folks want to escape for a place that has white walls and chic decor that looks more like a Crate and Barrel catalog than a page from Field and Stream.

That’s what Laurel Oaks Ranch offers. It’s a gorgeous Upshur County property just 2 hours east of Dallas. Tall pines and a well-maintained stream and lake make for picturesque views from the brick front porch of this incredible farmhouse. It’s marketed by Hortenstine Ranch Company for $1.7 million, which includes 181 acres of ag exempt land and a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath country home.

Other improvements include a 3,200-square-foot workshop/barn with several sheds and storage buildings, pastures, wells, and plenty of space to roam. If you enjoy bass fishing, this six acre private lake comes well stocked. Whitetail deer roam the property, and duck are plentiful during the season.

Really, this is a great place for quiet time when you need it. Find out more about this outstanding property on the Hortenstine Ranch Company website.
