Mountain Springs is one of the best-kept secrets in the area—right at the heart and soul of one of the nation’s best horse-raising regions. Just an hour north of Dallas/Fort Worth, the community has attracted some of the most skilled horse ranchers and trainers and a few well-known movie and music celebrities who own ranches in the area.
About a mile north of Lake Ray Roberts in Mountain Springs is a beautiful 105-acre property that could be a perfect place to build a dream horse ranch. With sandy loam soil, the Mountain Springs ranch has three ponds and scattered oaks on rolling topography. Currently used for cattle grazing, the property is enclosed with pipe and cable fencing.
There are several excellent building sites, including the heavily wooded north end of the property where one could place a house on a hill overlooking the countryside.
The ranch at 2 FM 922 is being offered for $1,102,500.
Located between Interstate 35 and FM 377, the property has extensive native wildlife, including deer and turkey, attracted by its excellent cover and water.
Lake Ray Roberts, a 29,000-acre reservoir, is considered one of the jewels of North Texas recreation. On the banks you can camp, hike, bike, ride horses, rollerblade, geocache or backpack. On the water, swim at one of our beaches, paddle or fish in either the kids’ pond or in the lake. Anglers catch largemouth bass, crappie, white bass and catfish. There are also boat ramps, a marina, a fishing pier and fish-cleaning stations. No fishing license is required in the state park.
