Modern ranch for nature lovers south of Houston hits the market for $5.3 million

Houstonians looking for land, lots of land and starry skies above have an attractive new option. A 257-acre multi-purpose ranch south of El Campo (about 90 minutes from Houston) with luxury amenities, a crystal-clear lake, and top-notch birding has hit the market.

Currently offered for $5.299 million by Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty, the ranch is located at 2256 County Road 453 in Midfield, Texas. The main residence designed by Lake Flato and the interiors by Martin-Lemaire Design offer comfort and luxury design – such as a modern kitchen and wide wooden beams lining the ceiling – combining contemporary and rustic.

Interiors, especially the main salon, are lined with stone finishes and a clean, updated aesthetic. Ideal for a common meeting place during getaways, the four guest suites are connected to the main residence by an adjoining breezeway and covered patio, as per the property description. More visitors can stay in the guest cabin and a dormitory – for a total of nine bedrooms and eight full bathrooms.

A huge outdoor seating area houses a fireplace and comfortable group seating. Cooking meals will be made easier thanks to the outdoor kitchen and grill.

In terms of open spaces, fishing enthusiasts can take advantage of the five-acre lake. A herd of genetically improved deer and an irrigated duck pond add to the wildlife, which benefits from improved pastures, dense undergrowth and an abundant water supply.

Nestled on a migratory flight path, the property is also visited by a pair of migrating bald eagles, making this site a paradise for nature lovers.
