LoMaRo Ranch, which straddles the Austin and Fort Bend county line, is a productive, diverse Texas-sized ranch with huge commercial potential. The ±925 acre-ranch is located less than an hour southwest of downtown Houston near Wallis.
The ranch includes more than 1.5 miles of Brazos River frontage and fronts Highway 36 for ±.7 of a mile. An active railroad, with a perpetually maintained crossing, parallels Highway 36 adding another appealing commercial feature.
For a discerning buyer interested in agriculture and livestock, wildlife and recreation, or commercial investment, the potential is limitless. While LoMaRo is convenient to urban amenities, it’s a world away when it comes to privacy. The stars still shine big and bright here.
Tracing its lineage to the original Stephen F. Austin land grant, the low-fenced ranch, has been in the current family since 1871.
Early on, some fields were broken out for cotton fields, but the LoMaRo Ranch has been a working cattle ranch throughout much of its multi-generational history. Traditional ranch roads provide easy access to the entire ranch, which has been cross-fenced into six separate pastures.
The front portion of the ranch features improved Coastal Bermuda pastures and hay meadows. Here the terrain includes flat meadows and rolling hills.
The back portion slopes down into the rich Brazos River bottom. Legacy oaks, pecans and cottonwoods provide shade. Native grasses and brush create superlative wildlife habitat. While the ranch has not been actively managed for wildlife, game abounds. The ranch has never been hunted commercially.
White-tailed deer, migratory waterfowl, feral hogs, and sandhill cranes as well as small game are plentiful. Quail have also been spotted.
Stretching for just over 1.5 miles, even the river frontage is diverse. An oxbow lake, stocked with two types of bass and bluegills, spans about one mile. Another portion includes a sandbar that gives a different type of access to the river. A high bank marks a third portion of the ranch’s intersection with the river.
A ranch lake, covering ± 3 acres, delivers stock water in the upper portion. Anglers seeking a different type of challenge can fish for catfish in this impoundment.
The original ranch house, which has been updated and currently is the site of family retreats, features 3 bedrooms and 3 baths with 2 bonus “kids’ rooms” in the loft. Its strong bones, dating back to the 1870s, could be the basis for the new owners’ dream home or it could be converted to a guest house. The ranch offers many different building sites that could be the foundation for a perfectly appointed retreat.
Ranch infrastructure includes livestock working pens, 2 equipment barns and a hay barn. A well supplies water to the house and the pens. Mineral rights are negotiable.
Diversity. Productivity. Proximity. Privacy. Access. Convenience. History. Water. Wildlife. Livestock. Endless opportunities.
LoMaRo Ranch is home to it all. Claim its abundance for yourself.
