Candler Ranch 270

390 Acres    ·    Waller County, Hempstead, TX, TX    ·    $ 2,850,000 - SOLD

The Candler Ranch is a working cattle ranch and recreational ranch located just south of Hempstead on FM 1887, 45 minutes from downtown Houston. The ranch includes 965’ of highway 1887 frontage, two miles of Clear Creek frontage with plenty of wooded areas to complement the numerous pastures of improved grasses and an excellent building site on high hill overlooking ranch.

Location:  The property lies on the east side of FM 1887, just over 5 miles south of Hempstead.

Habitat & Topography:  Much of the ranch is gently rolling prairie along the highway frontage and in improved grasses. Approximately 150 acres of the ranch is heavy woods with large oaks, hackberries and pecans. The back end of the ranch is a high hill with fantastic views and would make a great area to put in a wonderful home. All of the ranch perimeter is well fenced with some areas along creek needing some work.  Multiple cross fencing in the pastures for rotating cattle.

In addition to the road frontage on FM 1887, there is an entrance to the ranch at the dead end of Diorio Road. 

The western half of this tract is mostly in 100 year floodplain, but as you head to pasture on the northeastern half of ranch you will find high ground with beautiful views of surrounding countryside and would make a fantastic site for a home with plenty of privacy surrounded mostly by thick woods.

 Wildlife, Hunting:  White-tailed deer, hogs and dove are abundant on the property. This property is located along the Brazos river flyway and would be very conducive to putting in wetlands for waterfowl hunting.  There are several small low areas running into Clear Creek through the pastures which would make excellent places to put in duck wetlands.

Water:   There are several ponds on the ranch and one is fed by a solar water well.   There is two miles of Clear Creek on the boundary of the ranch as well as several smaller creeks.   Groundwater in this area is very good and relatively shallow for putting in more water wells.

Equestrian Potential:  This ranch lies in a region west of Houston that has seen an explosion of growth within the equestrian community. With ample portions of the ranch providing good footing for horses and the proximity to nearby clinics, shows and services; equestrian related activities could be a great additional component for this property.  The east side of the ranch abuts Ranches of Clear Creek.

Minerals:     Significant minerals are believed to be owned by Seller and may be negotiable. There is no production and the ranch is not currently leased for minerals.

Price:                        $2,240,000.00 ($8,296/acre)
