The Watson Ranch headquarters is the last part of a massive 3,500 acre ranch which was one of the first parcels settled in Montgomery County, Texas. Mr. Watson, the current owners, great-grandfather settled this ranch in the 1830s.
This is one of the last large parcels left in this highly desirable area. Watson Ranch is a well-managed cattle, hay, and hunting operation. Tifton-85, Jiggs, and Coastal hay meadows with large Pecan and Oak trees line the creek bottoms, and Pine and Oak thickets provide dense cover for wildlife on the sandy hills. The ranch has offered day hunts for White-tailed deer and hogs for 14 years from the many deer stands over protein and corn filled feeders.
There is a well-cared-for 1,900 sq. ft. 3/2 brick ranch house built in 1974 with covered parking present for a residence. There are also multiple barns and sheds for equipment, implement, and hay storage. A horse barn with stalls has been repurposed as a bunkhouse for hunters as well.
This working ranch has never changed hands since original settlement before now, and is a one of a kind place for this location. Its at the end of Watson Ranch Road, named after this ranch, which provides seclusion and end of the road privacy. Lake Creek bisects the property the property providing constant live water for wildlife and livestock. The creek bottom Bermuda grass fields provide optimum forage for horses, cattle, and hay production. There are also Pine tree harvesting options for the new owner. A large pond behind the house offers a beautiful setting to fish for catfish, bass, and brim.
