Cowhouse Bluff

Posted on: May 20th, 2021 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.
