FAIRFIELD, Texas —Ever dreamed of owning your very own 2,400-plus-acre lake?

The largest private lake in the Lone Star State has hit the market for $110,550,000 ($22,000 per acre). Surrounded by 21-plus miles of undeveloped and elevated shoreline, Fairfield Lake offers unlimited opportunities for entertainment, residential, commercial, or investment development, according to the listing. Located in the heart of Freestone County, Fairfield Lake is just east of Interstate 45, roughly a three-hour drive from Houston and Austin, and about 90 miles from Dallas.

The lake is estimated to be 50 feet at its deepest point and offers opportunities for boating and finishing. The property itself is 5,025-plus acres.


Property features include three concrete boat ramps with truck and trailer parking, a combination of underground and aboveground power throughout, a 4,350-foot earthen dam with a low hazard classification from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, 10 acres of wetland ecosystems, mature hardwood forestland, and 8-plus miles of highway grade blacktop, two-lane roads, and bridges. The fishing stock includes trophy bass, catfish, bluegill, and sunfish.

‘‘They say everything is bigger in Texas and that is definitely the case with this exceptional Fairfield Lake property,’’ said Blake Hortenstine, Broker/Partner of Hortenstine Ranch Co., the listing firm. ‘‘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, [it] is the only offering of its kind.’’

Fairfield Lake is located in the town of Fairfield, Texas, a rural ranch community of nearly 2,900 people.
