Improved pastures and plenty of water make this ideal for cattle ranching. There are two wells on the property, one for the house and one very deep well for cattle and irrigation. The pond is deep and has not gone dry, even during times of drought in the area. There is also a nostalgic pole barn on the property, perfect for storing tractors and equipment, as well as a creek running through the rolling countryside and beautiful scattered oak trees.

This Washington County property is conveniently located in Burton Independent School District, between Houston and Austin off Highway 290 on FM 1697. (The seller is conveying surface control.) Make this unique farmhouse and property your new home.

Remember, it is only 15 minutes from World Famous Historic Round Top Antique Show, where twice-a-year, cow pastures are re-purposed for an antiques shopping extravaganza that stretches across 26 miles. Celebrity shoppers mingle with interior designers and bargain hunters among 60 different venues featuring everything from fine antiques to architectural salvage to handmade and boutique items. Summer also brings Shakespeare at nearby Winedale, music at Festival Hill and the country’s longest running Fourth of July celebration west of the Mississippi.
