The ranch features a custom-built 3,800± square foot hill-country style home with views of the Brazos River valley. Three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and an attached three-car garage comprise the house. Outdoor living is emphasized with large porches and a detached recreation courtyard that offers a lap pool, spa, and barbecue area. A fire pit and wine cellar are built into the side of a hill and incorporated close to the home and pool area, serving a dual purpose as a storm shelter.
The residence maintains a split floor plan with two master suites and a downstairs office or media room. The third bedroom and full bathroom are upstairs over the attached three-car garage. Attention to details typically found in large estates, the home was designed and landscaped to complement the natural surroundings. Large windows and vaulted ceilings flood the space with natural light, emphasizing the views and seclusion of the property. The home and surrounding improvements are supplied with underground electrical service, a 220-foot-deep water well, and propane gas for fixed appliances.
Conservative horse improvements include quality-built pipe and welded no-climb wire pens, including four 18'x18' covered stalls with 18'x30' uncovered turnouts at each stall. Complete with a lighted riding arena, climate-controlled tack-feed room with attached covered hitching posts, and wash area.
In addition to the equestrian facilities, a 3,200± square foot insulated shop offers storage for equipment and supplies. Attached to the shop is a 40'x50' covered equipment parking with a gravel base and a separate 8'x40' dry storage container with electricity and water.
The property has exceptional hunting, with larger neighbors to the west and residential development to the east with minimal hunting pressure. A flooded duck slough provides waterfowl hunting, attracting a diverse population of ducks and geese. Access to the Brazos River provides wildlife, fishing, boating, and watersports. Approximately 760 acre-feet of adjudicated water rights allow irrigation and impoundment of water from the river.
The riverfront property, minus twenty acres along the waterfront, stands above the floodplain, ensuring that most of the land and its developments remain unharmed by flooding. The approximately twenty acres of floodplain consist of coastal Bermuda pecan bottom. The seller believes to own roughly 11% of the mineral estate and will convey all of it with the sale of the property.
The prime location and proximity to the metroplex, waterfront access, adjudicated water rights, custom home, equestrian amenities, and exceptional hunting opportunities make this waterfront ranch on the Brazos River an investment-class property in the path of progress with amenities built for enjoyment. This ranch offers a distinct opportunity in a remarkable setting.
