Property Description

The 978 Ranch is the perfect recreational property with no compromise in its grazing and hunting productivity. Planted Coastal has been spreading nicely throughout the fertilized pastures of sandy and clay loam soils, mixing with the native Bahia grasses. Thick stands of woods bisected by multiple drainages, including Ferry Branch, provide cover, forage and water for cattle and an abundance of wildlife. Located only three miles outside of Madisonville with over 2,000 feet of frontage on 978, this ranch truly has it all.


The 2,171 square feet of living space were remodeled in 2016 with new appliances, furnishing and fixtures. Propane and a water well with overbuilt motor, pressure tank and self cleaning filtration system provide reliable power and water to the home. 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a large open kitchen and massive mud room/laundry make this house perfectly suited for both weekend enjoyment or as a permanent residence.

Just to the east of the home sits a 1,200 square foot, concrete slabbed, steel framed barn with 4 large roll up doors, power and water. A large open air hay barn and horse stall with sliding barn door is attached as well as an enclosed workshop. In the yard there are 4 large 3 sided sheds that sit on sleds, making them easily moveable.

A well designed and steel pipe enforced working pen and squeeze chute sits behind the home.


4 ponds give a total of just over 3 surface acres of water with the largest lake being 2.5 acres. Additionally, well over 2,000 feet of Ferry Branch and multiple wildlife pools through multiple drainages provide a significant amount of surface water dispersed throughout the ranch.


The wildlife on the ranch thrives off of a great distribution of surface water, brush diversity and an extremely large acreage neighbor with little to no hunting pressure. A large mesquite flat provides great cover and forage for whitetails and open landing areas for many dove. A managed number of hogs travel the drainages along with a healthy population of other small game species.The lakes have been stocked with bass, catfish and many species of forage fish.


The ranch is located in central Madison County, just 3.5 miles west of the town of Madisonville, the County Seat. The ranch sits on FM 978, a paved blacktop, giving quick access to Madisonville and Interstate 45. Centrally located, the ranch is only 100 miles from Houston and 145 miles from Dallas/Fort Worth.
