A ranch in Forney that’s been the site of filming on the TV shows “Dallas” and “Walker, Texas Ranger” is on the market for a skosh under $3 million.
The 4,800-square-foot main house at Southern Cross Ranch has four bedrooms, three baths and features a pool-spa, gazebo, and a tennis court said Robin Sheedy of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, who is marketing the property along with John Albert. The ranch contains 82 acres.
The owners are asking $2,799,000 for the property. You can see more photos of the property by clicking here.
The working ranch has 10 horse riding corrals, a riding arena, a metal shop and three stocked fishing ponds, Sheedy said. The property also has two guest houses.
“It has a beautiful tree-lined drive,” Sheedy told the Dallas Business Journal. “The terrain cascades. It’s very hilly. On a clear day, you can see downtown Dallas from the house. It’s just a beautiful piece of property.”
Sheedy said it’s 22 minutes from downtown Dallas, combining big-city proximity and natural beauty.
“This is one of the larger ranches I’ve (listed) closer into Dallas,” she said.
The property has a rich history on the small screen.
According to a story from UPI, the property was auctioned in 1988. The marketing theme leading up to the auction was, “This magnificent horse-breeding ranch has become world-famous through its exposure to millions of television viewers as one of the two main ranches featured in 'Dallas.’”
In the television show, Southern Cross was in San Angelo, which is about 260 miles southwest of Dallas. In the TV series, the ranch was owned by Clayton Farlow, who married Miss Elly and decided to sell it and move to Elly's South Fork Ranch — the series' more famous ranch — which in real-life is in the town of Parker, east of Plano.
