We all love to dream big. When it comes to dreaming big about real estate, East Texas has some phenomenal options. If you're dreaming of an enormous house, or a huge amount of acreage, or a combination of both, you'll be able to find it in East Texas.

Looking at real estate listings online is a great way to pass some time while dreaming about the house you would like to live in and what it could look like. Reality quickly sets in when you see the sticker price! The vast majority of us could never afford a place like I saw on Realtor.com recently, even if several of us combined our incomes I don't think we could make the minimum mortgage payment! But it's fun to look and dream though.

Rio Neches Ranch Is For Sale In Tyler

In addition to being a primary residence, this property is set up as a working ranch with cattle and horses and several other big surprises.

A house of this magnitude is going to have all of your normal expectations: a large chef-style kitchen, spacious dining room, and impressive living/great room, but it's the luxurious add-ons and unexpected things that make the difference. Some of those impressive extras are:

  • 40 acre private lake

Some of you looking at this listing might have even been on this property and not realized it because it has hosted many charity events where some of the most popular entertainers have performed. So this property has an entertainment history.

I will say that an agent is going to make a nice commission off of this listing. This place is stunningly beautiful but will come with some maintenance too because a lot is happening on this property. Check out what $26,500,000 will get you in Smith County, Texas.
