Bay City is growing and developing into a thriving industrial contender. Projects that are already up and running are the OXEA Chemicals expansion project and Chevron Phillips Chemical which broke ground in 2014 on two world scale polyethylene units in Old Ocean just down the road from Bay City. The Chevron Phillips project will create 400 full time permanent jobs. STP Nuclear Operating which is Matagorda Countys largest employer was granted license to build two new units in late 2015. STP looks to hire more than 460 workers over the next five years. With this expansion comes the need for more housing and more land development. This is the opportunity youve been looking for. Not to mention its less than a 20 minute drive to Matagorda with prime bay fishing and access to the Gulf of Mexico. Give us a call for a private showing of this property and lets talk about the up and coming development of Bay City and Matagorda County.

Twin Lakes

Posted on: April 12th, 2018 by Cody Maxwell

Entertainment Recreational Ranch! This is a real showplace in the booming triangle between Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. Complete with a two-story ranch house with partial wrap around porch with outstanding views over the vineyard, and rolling hills leading down to the lake! Behind the house is the chapel/banquet building which is the perfect structure for a wedding or indoor get-together! There is also a gorgeous in-ground pool and pool house on the edge of the lake! This is possibly the most impressive view on the ranch, and is ideal for a party or reunion! Theres a soccer field and covered outdoor kitchen with covered dining area overlooking the pool and lake. There is another beautiful pond with a rustic, woodsy cabin on it. This is the perfect getaway deep in the woods on a pond with a fishing dock right off of the front porch. Across the pond is a most impressive wooded deck walkway through the woods terminating into a jaw dropping rock and hardwood covered gazebo.

There is a 4,000 sq.ft. warehouse with apartment, separate kitchen, and two bathrooms. This warehouse was once the wine making kitchen and storage facility. The area surrounding the home, chapel, pool house, and large lake is high fenced out of the remaining acreage. It was in place to keep deer from the grapes, but now could be used to fence animals such as axis deer or farm pets. The fishing is great in both lakes with lots of largemouth bass, channel catfish, tilapia, and bluegill. Ducks find both lakes as a secluded home ideal for viewing or hunting. Hog and deer hunting are excellent along Copperas Creek being the north boundary. There are three operating water wells with corresponding plumbing, pumps and ancillary equipment.

Twin Lakes was once a working vineyard turned into an entertainment ranch. Some of the vineyard is still alive and fruiting although now it serves as more for the view and ambience than production (its a lot of time and expense!), and for this improvement packed ranch, is now an added bonus!


Ranch House and Garage –

4,782 sq. ft. (including porches)- hardwood floors, fireplace in Master bedroom, and private porch access, Master bath has walk-in closet, double vanity, deep tub and shower. Kitchen has a large island, granite countertops, newer appliances, and an awesome Wolf gas stovetop with flat iron griddle, double-oven commercial stove. Living room also offers a fireplace. Wrap around porch with incredible lake and vineyard views. Detached 3-4 car garage offers plenty of covered storage.

Pool and Pool House –

Lakefront in-ground pool with hot-tub and waterfalls! Pool House includes Mens and Womens separate bathrooms/dressing rooms on either side, and island bar with sink and granite countertops, new appliances, two gas grills with stainless vent-a-hoods, a range with two burners, and a pool storage room. Theres a soccer/sports field with retaining walls next to the pool house.

Chapel/Banquet Room –

1,670 sq. ft. building with open room for entertaining or a wedding reception area with cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the vineyard! It also offers a bedroom with bath, kitchenette, and two storage rooms. Pews are stored in the warehouse for special events. This would make an excellent office, guest house, or event building.

Log Cabin –

Overlooking the pond is a rustic log cabin with fireplace, bar with sink and range, bathroom, and hardwood floors. The covered front porch is an ideal place to sit and watch the fishing, ducks, or just relax.

Pond-Front Gazebo –

Across the pond from the Cabin is a gorgeous lighted Gazebo with a long deck walk from the entrance trail. This is a great place for romantic walks, gatherings, weddings, or just about anything else you can imagine. What a setting!

Warehouse –

4,000 sq. ft. cement foundation warehouse that includes an office, living quarters complete with bedroom and attached bathroom, kitchen, dining area, and an upstairs bedroom apartment. This once served as the gathering and mashing of the grapes from the vineyard, so its very well insulated and serviced by a 10 ton HVAC system!

Fishing and Hunting –

Twin Lakes is perfect for secluded, end of the road, hunting and fishing. Plenty of deer and hogs are found in the wooded areas especially along Copperas Creek serving as the North perimeter of the property. The fishing is good in both ponds, but the large lake, which is more or less 8 acres according to the map, is packed with good sized Largemouth Bass! There are also giant bluegill which will also hit soft plastics and top-water baits.

Water Resources –

Twin Lakes has plenty of perhaps the most important asset/feature: water. Two nice sized water holes being the lake at approximately 8 acres at capacity, and another pond of close to 2 surface acres.

There are three operation water wells plumbed together supplying all the water the user needs for all the improvements and irrigation of the yard. One is in front of the house with an old-time hand dug water well covering, one is behind the Chapel, and the other is on the trail leading to the Log Cabin on the pond.

Copperas Creek (seasonal) runs most of the year in normal rainfall, and is lined with huge Pecan, Elm, and other hardwood trees.

Taxes –

Twin Lakes currently has an ag exemption on the 20-acre vineyard (part of which has been turned back to pasture (for future hay production). In addition, the balance of the ranch not enclosed by a game fence, is approximately 115 acres has begun the process of qualifying for an ag exemption. Cattle are being run on this part since 2017, and it will qualify in 2022 for ag valuation. Taxes are currently $28,705 in total for the ranch.

Shiner Hill

Posted on: April 9th, 2018 by Freddy Rouse

The Shiner Hill property consist of 86.61 acres just 2 miles outside of the Historic town of Shiner, Texas. This hilltop property is said to have some history to it. Elders stories say that the location of this property was once the original location of the town of Shiner up until 1887 when Henry B. Shiner donated 250 acres for a depot and right-of-way for the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway. When the railway came through, the town of Shiner was moved 2 miles north, where its located today.

Atop this scenic hilltop looking over the 86.61 acres, sits a 3,205 square foot brick home which also has an additional 2,853 square feet of patios, and closed in porches to enjoy the view. The concrete courtyard would be a great location for that evening fire pit to relax, or would make a great party venue to entertain guests. The yard around the house has several mature Live Oaks for shady summer days to entertain guests, or just to relax and enjoy the view. Looking out from the patios and porches you can enjoy the sloping terrain which leads down to Rocky Creek on the northern end of the property. Rocky Creek, which is lined with ample trees and dense cover is most likely home to wildlife such as deer, turkey, hogs and other wild game. The pastures are full of native and coastal grasses perfect for a small cattle operation, or for the horse lovers alike along with the barns, pens and water troughs throughout the property. With this awesome location, this property will make a great main residence, or the perfect entertaining weekend getaway!!

River Hills

Posted on: March 28th, 2018 by Cody Maxwell

River Hills – Awesome place that shows like its twice the size! There are dense woods, rolling hills with distant views, a nice 2-acre pond, Spring Branch Creek, a live spring, and lots of Brazos River frontage with a park-like river entry. Krotofil Lane is a paved county road which dead ends after the property entry, offers seclusion, and the property is on the Houston side of Brenham and Washington County, for a quick drive to the Houston area.

The property offers expansive views with high elevations. Wooded draws and beautiful Spring Branch offer plenty of water and cover for wildlife. Spring Branch enters the Brazos River on the property, and theres a live spring nearby! At the river entry, theres a peninsula of washed sandstone jetting out into the river allowing a fisherman to bank fish near the middle of the river. Due to the tremendous elevations, this property has only limited (about 15%) floodplain, which is quite unique for a river property. mineral rights are also offered. Hurry, this is a one of a kind place so close to Houston!

Butterfly 54

Posted on: March 28th, 2018 by Cody Maxwell

54 acres to be surveyed, offers plenty of wildlife for hunting and fishing, AND commercial site opportunity with frontage on Hwy 290 close to the Brazos River Bridge. Malinowsky Lane is paved, and on the Houston side of Brenham in Washington County, for a quick commute to the Houston area.

The property is in the shape of a butterfly, hence the name of the listing, with plenty of road frontage on both Hwy 290 and Malinowski Lane in Chappell Hill, TX. The Western part, or left wing, is out of the flood plain, and could possibly host a business on Hwy 290. The Eastern portion offers more woods and a wet slough, which is usually full of water and home to ducks which appreciate the hidden seclusion.

Weve also seen quail running up and down the trail alongside the slew. Theres not much traffic on this parcel, so theres a lot of wildlife calling it home. Theres also a riverside field of native grasses where you can put up a deer stand. The Butterfly piece offers about 1,000 ft. of Brazos River frontage for fishing and recreation, but there has not been an opening cleared to access it as of yet.

Half mineral rights are also offered.
