Walnut Hill Ranch - Grimes County, Navasota, TX

Key Attributes

This +52.945 acre ranch epitomizes the title of gentleman’s ranch, with “end of the road” privacy. The signature features of the property are the +5 acre lake loaded with bass and the hilltop, move-in ready, three bed, two bath ranch house. The ranch offers a live oak lined drive up the hill to this beautiful home which features front and back full- length porches with dramatic views from the high point on the ranch. The incredible back porch view through several huge oak and black walnut trees showcases the lake and ranch’s fantastic topography. The hills slope dramatically down and away from the house and open up into beautiful rolling pastures, punctuated by several stands of hardwood trees scattered throughout the property, creating a good mix of open pastures and woods benefiting the wildlife.  Heavy timber on neighboring properties provides additional serenity.


Location:                The ranch is located just east of Whitehall off of County Road 307. The ranch is 18 miles east of Navasota, 63 miles north west of downtown Houston and just 34 miles south east of College Station.   While already convenient, upon completion, the future “Aggie Expressway” will provide even better accessibility.


Habitat:                  Per USDA data, soils are predominantly sandy loams. The topography is generally rolling and slopes down and away from the high point of 360 feet just behind the home. Elevations range from 360 feet to a low of 290 feet with drainages assisting the two water features.

Pasture grasses are thick and include bermuda, bahai, and some bluestem.  Trees include various oaks, black walnut, ash, cottonwood, elm, and cypress.


Wildlife:                  Native game on the ranch include deer, dove, few hogs, and ducks. The exterior fencing is completely made up of hog panel fence which keeps populations low. There has been very little hunting pressure on the ranch. 


Improvements:    The home, built in 2006, is a 3 bed, 2 bath home plus a loft (+2,426 SF, including loft) with an open floor plan and full range of amenities, fireplace, full length front and back porches and a two-car garage.

A +3,200 SF steel framed, slabbed barn with roll up doors sits to the north of the home.

Fencing around the ranch is comprised entirely of net wire fencing as well as high fencing along one side by virtue of a large high fenced neighbor to the north.


Water:                    In addition to the main lake, there are two additional small tanks with catfish.   Water to the house is supplied by a water well. The lake and tanks have held good water in both dry and wet times over the owner’s tenure.
