Located in Independence, Texas, Bluff Road Farm is an excellent opportunity for a buyer to create their own private residence or weekend getaway. This 26 acres for sale offers multiple homesites with impressive 30-40 elevated views of the Central Texas countryside. This Washington County farm is entirely low fenced with convenient access off of paved frontage road FM 1935.
Rich in history, the Bluff Road Farm has been in the same family for 150 years. The property is just north of the historic La Bahia Trail that has been used since the 1600s by the Spanish and had been used before that by Native Americans as a trade route. A short five miles down the road from the property is the historic community of Independence, which was founded in 1835 and was home to Sam Houston and his family in the 1850s. Brenham is also only 19 minutes from the ranch and College Station is less than 40 minutes away. The big city amenities of downtown Houston and The Woodlands are also nearby, at just an hour and 20 minutes from the property.
Over half of the farm is pastureland, with seasonal bluebonnets, while the rest of the acreage is mostly rich farmland with some areas of dense brush. At the front of the property is a six-acre hay field bordered with trees. Additionally, around two acres of thick woods line the drawl that feeds into a two-acre pond on the property. This pond is an excellent source of drinking water for cattle grazing on the land as well as the abundant native wildlife.
Bluff Road Farm, with its low fenced, undeveloped acreage and surprising views of the countryside, is an ideal canvas to build a rural homestead or getaway retreat.
