This property comes with many amazing features, some you won’t find with just any property in Texas. First, this almost 9 acres comes with mineral rights to the land, meaning you’ll not only own the land, but what’s under the ground. This property recently renewed its agricultural exemption in January of 2021, locking in very reasonable taxes on this property, especially considering it’s size. The lot dimensions are 325′ x 1180′ and that includes 325 feet of road frontage.
Natural trails cross the property, and we even found shedded antlers along one of these trails when we were walking the land, making this an ideal property for a hunter looking for a private retreat to hunt.
At the property you will see the beautifully cleared land and the 325 feet of road frontage. Power and water utilities run along the road, and a power pole even extends about 150 feet into the property, meaning you won’t have to pay for an extension, and just need to get hooked in with Huston County Electrical Co-op. Not only do tall mature pines border the entire property, giving you incredible protection from noise and nosey neighbors, but the entire property has also been fenced, with a gate already installed at the road. Coupled with partial access to this stock tank to the rear of the property makes this a wonderful spot to graze livestock, or move one of your herds.
Whether you’re looking to build your new home, move your mobile home, tiny home, or hunting cabin, this 8.8 acres is right in the middle of the adventure. Surrounded by National Forest, two world class lakes within an hour of the property, and full unrestricted living means whether you want a 9 acre yard, or a place to start or expand your farm, you can realize your dreams in Apple Springs.

Who We Are
Dream Land Deal – Real Estate Dreams made Affordable
My name is Andrew Finger and I live in Houston, Texas the multi-cultural center of the country. I live here with my wonderful wife and family in one of the more affordable metropolitan areas you can find in the country.
I started Dream Land Deal about 3 years ago after learning about land investing when I started to search for alternatives to traditional investments like Stocks and Savings Accounts. I wanted a place to store my hard-earned savings that could be protected from the high volatility and uncertainty on Wall Street and the dangerously escalating national debt.
So I found land. I was really attracted to it because it’s a fixed resource and Still relatively cheap compared with other high-cost investments like rental homes, apartment buildings, and so forth. But I really love it because land is like a blank slate – You can really do anything with it. And this is how my passion grew into a business because it gives me a connection to other people that share in my excitement for endless possibilities.
Our business model is all about acquiring vacant land at wholesale prices and passing along the savings to you (our customer). This helps us to keep the costs low and bring additional savings through our unique marketing channels and streamlined sales processes.
Our goal is to get you the best deal possible and we provide a 90-Day Exchange Policy – if you decide one of our properties you bought isn’t what you wanted, we will exchange it for any another property in our active inventory – you only need to cover for any differences in the price.
Call us today at 970-420-2440 to get the ball rolling, ask any questions about our ad or business processes and what we can do to help you find the land of your dreams.
