Property Description

Located just 70 miles from downtown Houston, the Smith Ranch is 37 acres of prime Austin County land. The ranch is located between Bellville, New Ulm and Industry, with access along New Bremen Road. An automatic gate leads into the property and opens into a view across the pasture and rising to the house on the ridge. As you enter the property you pass an antique home and two great barns sitting close to the road. The drive up to the house winds past two lakes and the live water Black Walnut Creek off to the east.
Land: With a 40/60 woods to open ratio, the front of the property is comprised mostly of improved pastures, two lakes and a long stretch of Black Walnut Creek. The property rises up towards the custom home set on a ridge overlooking the ranch. Behind the house the property crosses a creek tributary and rises into a cedar and hardwood grove cleared of underbrush.

Water: Two one-acre ponds sit towards the front of the ranch and are stocked with bass. A highlight of the property is 1,700 of Black Walnut Creek which meanders with the eastern boundary while additional tributaries fed by springs bisect the property. The creek flows year-round with multiple springs, making for great aesthetics and recreation.

Improvements: The 2,200 square foot custom home sits as a central feature of the property. The kitchen and living area are wide open with wooden beams and a stone fireplace. Tons of storage, quality finishes, a full garage and whole house generator make this home ready to serve as a full-time residence or weekend getaway. No compromises were made in its construction while remaining understated and efficient. There is an additional home at the front of the property constructed in 1920 that could be restored as a great guest home, or rental property or left in its current state as a nice antique feature. Two well built three-sided barns house equipment and hay.

Wildlife: Several large neighbors, little to no hunting pressure and a great mix of woods and open pasture make this tract a wildlife haven. Whitetail frequent the property as well as many migratory birds including dove and passing ducks. Strong numbers of bass and bait fish thrive in the well sized ponds.

Location: The ranch is located just 20 miles from Brenham or Bellville and only 8 miles to New Ulm. Additionally, Austin is an easy 100 miles to the west and Houston just 70 miles to the east.
