Jack Road North is a 266 acre tall grass prairie and wetland property that has been operated and maintained by the Katy Prairie Conservancy. This ranch has great wetlands to attract waterfowl, dove and wetland birds as well as lots of native prairie with huge oaks and plenty of woods for a variety of wildlife. The property is bordered to the west by the historic Warren Ranch which has produced outstanding hunting. In addition to the excellent waterfowl hunting, there are good quail, deer and hogs all within 40 miles of downtown Houston.
Location: The property is located on paved Jack Road in northwest Harris County and is only 6 miles west of Hwy. 99, seven miles south of Hockley, and nine miles north of Katy.
Topography: The Jack Road North Ranch is located in the historic Coastal Prairie Region of Texas that once extended over miles of the Texas coast. In the 1990’s, this former rice farm was converted into wetlands mitigation with multiple established wetlands and almost a mile of a Cypress Creek tributary traversing the property. The property is covered with large live and water oaks as well as acres of native prairie grasses.
Wildlife: This area is well known for holding outstanding numbers of dove and waterfowl. The multiple wetlands attract great numbers of ducks and geese as well as large numbers of cranes. The woods and brush hold great numbers of whitetail deer and hogs. The prairie can also hold excellent numbers of bobwhite quail for a property so close to Houston. Overall this ranch has a fantastic variety of wildlife and great recreational opportunities.
Water: Water features include numerous wetlands units, nearly a mile of a Cypress Creek tributary and an approximately one acre tank which is great for fishing. Groundwater in this area is very accessible.
Price: $1,463,000 ($5,500/acre)
Other: The sellers will require a simultaneous easement conveyance at closing to protect the land from development. The easement will provide for recreation and a building site to put a lodge or house on it but it does restrict further development. The easement will allow cattle grazing, some farming, and complete recreational use such as hunting.
