Cowhouse Bluff

Posted on: November 13th, 2018 by Cody Maxwell

More acreage available!

This is a prime piece of a family owned ranch since 1875, and first time listed for sale!

This is a very rare land offering due to the almost one-quarter mile of Cowhouse Creek frontage, and hill country mountains on the same place. This ranch is on the southern run of the creek before it enters Lake Belton; therefore, gaining more runoff water, and making it more dependable with deep holes and good fishing in comparison with more northern parts of the Cowhouse.

Giant Pecan and Bur Oak trees line the creek and the seasonal stream that comes out of the wooded hill on this magnificent place! There is an impeccable view of the creek valley ready for a home, a spring-fed hilltop pond, and a waterfall/crawfish hole to enjoy! Sandhill Crane watching, pond-side dove hunting, awesome white-tailed deer hunting, flint filled Indian campgrounds, a hand-stacked rock fence along the old wagon road are just a few of the attributes on this jewel of a place.

This place really has it all on such small acreage almost 1,200 feet of rock bottomed Cowhouse Creek frontage, limited floodplain due to tremendous elevations and views, huge hardwood trees and an abundant amount of thicker deer hunting cover, lots of water (creek, seasonal creek, spring fed pond), and minerals available!

Believe me, this could be the perfect place if there ever was one, and these dont come along hardly ever. This has been owned by the same family for over 140 years! Come have a look, and youll see why.

If you are a discerning buyer looking for end of the road seclusion on a ranch that has it all, give Cody a call today at 979-530-7010.

Cowhouse Deluxe

Posted on: September 28th, 2018 by Cody Maxwell


A once in a lifetime chance to buy a small place with all of the desired quality and character that you would have to buy thousands of acres in the right area to achieve! This is an immaculate and incredible part of a historical 1,200-acre Cowhouse Creek Ranch owned by the same family for several generations. This family has decided to sell a prime small portion to the lucky buyer. As you may know, ranches on this creek especially this far south where it flows a lot of water, are tightly held due to the high demand and very low supply. Small parcels with woods on the Cowhouse with high elevated homesites out of the floodplain with an ideal symmetrical tract shape are relatively unheard of. This is the one!

Private Russell Road dead ends into this hill country mountain property overlooking the astounding beauty of the Cowhouse Creek valley. The trees have been trimmed up allowing views of the deer and animals under them. This presents an ideal setting for a homesite high on the hill overlooking your new ranchette on Cowhouse Creek. This is approximately a 100-foot elevation (900 to 800) change from the homesite to the creek bottom!

The hand laden rock wall that bordered the wagon road between King and Pidcoke that once bisected this property is still visible. There is a gravel road leading down the hill through the woods ending into the hay meadow. This field is usually bright green and an ideal place for cattle, deer and other animals to graze and still be secluded, away from any houses or traffic noise. With a steep wooded hill on the West providing shade in the afternoons, and the Cowhouse on the East, they are well protected. This is a special place, well-hidden and offering incredible beauty. Mature Pecan, Elm, and Black Walnut trees line the field making perfect shading spots for the animals, or for people to picnic and sit and watch nature at its best.

Over a quarter of a mile of Cowhouse Creek frontage! 1,400 ft. more or less!

There are walking trails leading along the creek and down to the waters edge providing easy unfenced access to the rock bottomed, reliably running, clear creek. There are lots of fun wading areas, and fishing for bass, sunfish, and catfish. You can usually see the fish in the clear water. This is quite unusual for Central Texas live water, making it a very special find indeed. Every acre on this place is useful to a recreational buyer.

Call Cody at 979-530-7010 to come have a look. Please make sure that you are qualified, and have your funds in order before viewing. The price is firm per the Seller. MORE ACREAGE IS AVAILABLE! 48-hour appointment to showing time lead needed.

Posted on: June 13th, 2018 by Cody Maxwell

Spring Branch – This place is a special one! 78 acres more or less, to be surveyed, has just about everything desirable for a discerning buyer. Malinowski Lane is paved, and on the Houston side of Brenham and Washington County for a quick drive to the Houston area.

Spring Branch generally is a pretty dependable creek as far as running flow, and this property has its own private iron bridge crossing over it! Across the creek is a trail that leads to a hidden food plot area backing up to the wooded creek. The creek bottom is park-like with giant Pecan and Cottonwood trees towering over it. Another trail leads through dense brush and woods into an opening where the Brazos comes into view, and the pillars of the old Railroad rise out of the river! This is a beautiful view, and big addition to an already beautiful property. Due to the tremendous elevations, this property has only limited floodplain, which is quite unique for a river property. An electric meter and working water well are already installed, and operating. One-half of owned mineral rights are also offered. Hurry, this is a one of a kind place so close to Houston!
