$1,500,000 187 Acres
10 Bedroom 6 Bathrooms 10000 Sq.Ft.
Property ID 153629


Incredible waterfront ranch less than one hour from downtown Houston. The ranch has nearly 6,000 of frontage on the West Fork of the Double Bayou which is a deep navigable waterfront that leads directly to Trinity Bay. Cross fenced property with three homes on well landscaped waterfront with 600 of bulkhead and three lighted fishing docks. Terrific get away from Houston in a very private setting. Excellent long term investment with so much navigable water frontage that could be further developed.

Location: The ranch has 1,800 feet of road frontage on Jobe Wilson Road. It is located less than 11 miles from I-10 and 4 miles south of Anahuac. Chambers County airport is also only 10 minutes away (6,000 airstrip).

Habitat: The ranch is a mix of improved pastures and heavy woods. Currently the property is used for hay cutting but would make a great cattle or horse property. The woods include large stands of mixed pines, oaks and elms. There is also a year-round creek that flows through the middle of the property which is surrounded by large pines and oaks.

Wildlife: White-tailed deer are abundant on the property. Hunting in this area is excellent. Plenty of other wildlife including eagles and ospreys which make the bayou there home in the winter months. Dove hunting in this area can be excellent as well with nearby agriculture fields.

The one acre pond is stocked with largemouth bass and is terrific fishing. The bayou is excellent fishing for both saltwater species such as redfish, speckled trout and founder during times of lower runoff and freshwater species such as bass, catfish and crappie during dryer times.

Improvements: There are 3 homes on the ; a 3/2 1920s updated ranch home, a 2200 sf 5/3 manufactured home, and another 3/2 1500sf manufactured home. All homes have wrap around covered porches and have been recently updated.

600 feet of the 6,000 of the bayou frontage has been bulkheaded and includes three lighted fishing piers and a boat launch. There is an enclosed barn and the sale will include boats, jet skis, four wheelers, horses, tractors and other equipment. A real turnkey operation.

The entire pasture has been extensively cross-fenced and designed for cattle, hay cutting or running horses.

Water: 6,000 of frontage on the West Fork of Double Bayou. This bayou is deep and wide and allows boat access to Trinity Bay. The boat ride to the bay is less than 20 minutes for great access to water sports and fishing.

There is a one acre pond in front of the houses designed as a fishing and swimming hole with a dock and pavilion overlooking the lake.

The homes are watered by a water well. Groundwater here is good and easily accessible.

Electricity: Available on the ranch.

Minerals: No minerals convey with the sale of the ranch. There is no production.This is an excellent private waterfront retreat with great boating, fishing, and hunting.
