Athens, Texas based United Country Real Estate | East Texas Real Estate and Auction specializes in lake homes, farmland, recreational properties, country homes, land, luxury homes, ranches and commercial properties for sale throughout Henderson County and surrounding areas in East Texas.
Multiple U.S. and state highways run through Henderson County, making it an ideal location as far as easy access to other cities and metro areas in parts of East, Central and North Texas.
Athens (the county seat) is a little more than an hour’s drive southeast of Dallas (and technically within a sub-section of the Dallas-Fort Worth combined statistical area). The city is also 45 minutes southwest of Tyler and 26 minutes due south of Canton. On its official website, Athens touts itself as having “the charm of a small southern town while still retaining many of the qualities of a larger city.”
Henderson County is essentially a transitional region between East and Central Texas, moving from the northeastern Piney Woods to the western Blackland Prairies. This is a unique region called the Post Oak Savannah, with open prairies, timberland and multiple lakes, parks and other places to enjoy outdoor adventures such as hunting, fishing and hiking.
In addition, farm and ranch life is also prevalent here, with everything from large commercial operations to small family farms and even agritourism playing a part in the local economy. Fresh produce, grains and row crops, cattle, horses, dairy and more … it’s all part of the county’s identity.
That said, if neither agriculture nor outdoor recreation are your thing, no worries. There are also some fun downtown areas with local shops, restaurants and community events to enjoy. Whether here in Henderson County or in neighboring counties, there are plenty of great places to live, work and play.
