Property description

Incredible 60-acre turn-key working ranch. This property has it all!

Drive in the gated private road through a picturesque Live Oak tree-lined drive to the newly completely updated ranch-style home, garage, and massive air-conditioned barn. The ranch house is very welcoming with wrap around porches and lounging patio overlooking the acreage and fishing pond through the giant Post Oak trees. The pond has bass, bluegill, and catfish that swim beneath the new wooden pier where the depth is 10 feet at the end. To the north of the pond pasture is a 22-acre hay meadow for cattle/horse grazing, and 28 acres of Post Oak timber where the deer, hogs, foxes, owls, and other wildlife call home. The woods have been cleared of underbrush making them traversable in a 4-wheeler for exploration. This Ag-exempt property has it all wrapped up in a very charming presentation just 20 minutes from College Station!

The +/- 2,400 sq. ft. home offers open dining/kitchen/living room with vaulted ceilings for an open and natural light environment. Almost 1,000 sq. ft. of open porches wrap around three sides of the home creating a southern country feel and covered sitting and walking space. The residence was built in 1997 and has been completely renovated into a new ranch house featuring comfortable bedrooms, a huge primary bathroom and walk-in closet. Wickson Creek water provides the water meter service and Mid-South the electric and high-speed fiber internet! Watching sunsets and wildlife at the pond and in the pastures is a truly relaxing pleasure from the inviting covered back porch.

The two-car garage has also been transformed into a like-new structure and looks great between the house and the barn with new siding, roof, insulated garage doors, and RV hookup.

The barn is a 40x84 air-conditioned metal insulated Mueller metal building in great shape complete with RV hookups, LED lighting and covered ends for storage. Inside is a studio loft, a kitchen, a full bathroom, washer/dryer hookup and more. This is an ideal setup for entertaining, storage, and workshop.

The yard offers an irrigated peach and apple orchard as well as a vineyard. The irrigation is easily operated by a smartphone app.

The location is great in the center of Grimes County between Houston and College Station. Only 20 minutes to College Station, an hour from the Woodlands, and 80 miles to downtown Houston. This is a growing part of the state, but still offers the rural feel and wildlife.
