Rainbolt Ranch is a premier ranching opportunity in the western hills of Leon County, TX. At 2,500 acres, it is notable for size and production capacity, and is capable of supporting 725 AU. Serious ranchers will appreciate a productive yet beautiful ranch with clean, modest, and functional improvements in the heart of Texas. The ranch is exceptionally watered with over 30 ponds and lakes. There are also springs and creeks supporting some individual pastures. Three water wells across the ranch supply water to the headquarters and homes. Elevations range from 290’ to 450’ above median sea level. Nearly every larger pasture will have greater than 30 feet of elevation change, creating big views from all directions at multiple points on the ranch. Rainbolt Ranch is larger in terms of acreage and capacity for the region, situated between Houston and Dallas and less than one hour from Bryan/College Station. With over 1.5 miles of paved Highway 3 frontage, which is a quiet country road just outside of Marquez, it is readily accessible to HWY 79 and HWY 7, making cattle and commodity transport to this ranch exceptional.
A comfortable cabin-like brick 3,200 square foot owners home features four bedrooms and three baths with a spacious deck overlooking the wide creek bottom. Pastures are accessed via six miles of well-developed interior roads with cattle guards, and cattle are handled utilizing two sets of larger shipping corrals, three smaller local corrals, and a 12,000lb pen cattle scale. The headquarters are anchored by a four bedroom, four bathroom manager's home, and an 8,000’ Quonset shop with 5,000’ of covered equipment storage. Horse pens, horse barn, and a saddle house round out the headquarters for an operation of this size.
