Valle Vista 205

Posted on: June 11th, 2019 by Cody Maxwell

Valle Vista 205 in Athens, TX is for sale. The property is located inside Loop 7 SW of Athens. Close to the amenities and restaurants in town, yet completely wooded and secluded! You would think that you are way out in the country due to the big elevation changes, dense hardwood trees, wildlife, and quiet solitude. Good deer and duck hunting!

This is ideal for a buyer looking for a beautiful large acreage property with direct access to the amenities of the city (across the road from Athens Country Club), or hold and develop later. There are no old improvements to clean up, or dispose of – just lots of wooded, raw land.

A large acreage development prospect so close to town is quite rare, and would make a great subdivision with the Northeastern corner (10 acres, more or less) of the property already being in the city limits. The entire property is under ag valuation with low taxes currently. There are public roads on two sides of the property – East (Valle Vista Road FM 2494), and North (CR 1500, W. College Street).

Priced to sell at $4,365/acre! What will it be worth when developed into home sites?

There are few places left where the experience of natural beauty, a deep serene remoteness, and living history collide. The Big Canyon Ranch, set in the conversion region of the Chihuahuan Desert, Tampulipan Thornschrub, and Edwards Plateau, is such a place. This vast ranch must be seen to truly be understood and appreciated. Miles of remote roads end into this vast ranch that is steeped in rich history, rolling plains, deep canyons, and towering bluffs. The unique combination of wildlife, serenity and remoteness, and wilderness are a taste of nature that few ever get to experience, much less own.

The elevation ranges from 1,900 to over 2,100 ft. at the tallest points, there are sweeping views as far as the eye can see. The caps of the Serranias del Burro Mountains in Old Mexico can be seen in the distance, providing an awe-inspiring backdrop.

Flora and Fauna
The three ecological regions that meet in this area creating a biologically diverse field unlike anything else in the state. It has been years since significant livestock roamed the ranch, and therefore, the property's grasses, browse, and shrubs are in outstanding condition.

The hills grow a variety of brush such as sotol, juniper, algerita, mesquite and cedar. The grassland flats are scattered with algerita, grama grasses, cresosote bush, ojasen, catclaw, and sideoats.
