Rancho Martita

120 acres – Washington Co.

Rancho Martita is one of the most impressive equestrian properties on the market today. Every aspect of its design and development was engineered and constructed with a focus on quality and functionality and an indisputable attention to detail. If you are in the market for a premier equestrian facility, you will be hard-pressed to find a more stunning property with high end improvements in a better location.

LOCATION:

Just 7 miles west from Brenham on FM 389, which the locals claim as one of the most scenic roads out of town in the most attractive part of Washington County. The town of Brenham has a legendary past with a modern feel.  Brenham also holds a reputation as a hot bed for the cutting horse industry and is home to the American Cutting Horse Association and several renowned cutting horse training facilities.

LAND:

The pastoral setting on this 120.76 acre property is unrivaled anywhere else in the state.  Rolling, productive pasture, live water creek, massive Oak trees and a knock-your-socks off undeveloped homesite that will embolden even the most content to aspire.

There is 1850 ft of both sides of Rocky Creek that gently flows through the property during normal rainfall years. This creek bed is a combination of narrow, shallow sandy bottom shoal and wider, deeper holes of water. The banks of the creek are heavily wooden and provide cover and shelter for whitetail deer and other native wildlife.  In addition to Rocky Creek, there are 2 ponds on the property each approximately a ½ acre in size. The deeper pond, located below [below what] and within view of the main barn is stocked and ready to be fished.

Approximately 34 acres of the property is in hay production historically round baled with yield of 4 bales per acre.

Every grassy acre at Rancho Martita is productive and part of a larger pasture management system suitable for horses or cattle. A total of 10 horse paddocks constructed out of top rail pipe and no-climb horse friendly mesh wire fencing are functional and in place. 7 of these paddocks have enclosed loafing sheds with freeze-proof water troughs. Regardless of your equine discipline, the current pasture design, layout, construction, and equipment allow for efficient management of your horse operation from day one.

SITE WORK:

Water distribution, storm water drainage as well as electrical distribution systems were constructed to subdivision specs and buried to a depth of approximately 36” throughout most of the improvement area. This increased cost incurred during infrastructure construction resulted in increased safety and reliability for owners and their animals during inclement weather. The main road system throughout the ranch is built from a desirable local red gravel and allows for all weather access and reduces dust in dry times. Extensive welded pipe fencing throughout the ranch was built to last a lifetime and adds to the properties attractive curb appeal.

There is one high-volume water well that services the barns, arena and pasture troughs and there are 3 independent septic systems at various structures throughout the ranch. Please contact listing Brokers for disclosures.

IMPROVEMENTS:

Entering the ranch, your focus immediately shifts to the imposing and impressive covered arena and horse barn area flanked by ample concrete parking areas.
