Going to the lake is a summer pastime for many Texans. Whether its boating, swimming, fishing, or any other water based activity; Texas has plenty of lakes to choose from throughout the state. However, now Texans have the chance to own a lake of their own, as long as they have $110 million to spare.
Fairfield Lake, a 2,400-acre body of water located in Freestone County, is the largest private lake in Texas and recently went up for sale. According to Dallas Culture Map, the lake comes with over 21 miles of undeveloped and elevated shoreline. It even has a convenient location, between Dallas, Houston, and Austin, and just east of I-45.
The lake is currently being marketed by Hortenstine Ranch Company. “A water asset of this magnitude is virtually impossible to find anywhere in the lower 48 states, and combined with the land development possibilities and amenities, is the only offering of its kind," said Blake Hortenstine, Broker/Partner of Hortenstine Ranch Company. For anyone jealous of their friend’s lake house, it may be time to step it up and buy a lake.
