Pooles Creek Ranch is situated in central Madison County just north of Madisonville, TX. The ranch is set up for a combination of cattle ranching, hunting, and recreational uses and is also suitable as an investment property. The property is comprised of approximately 70 percent pasture and 30 percent wooded with an excellent mix of mature hardwoods, younger brush and tree studded pastures. The productive sandy loam pastures are predominately Bahia and common Bermuda, and provide excellent grazing for livestock. The meadows are spaced and surrounded to maximize serenity and edge habitat over much of the ranch. One 92 acre pasture is typically cultivated and grazed for winter annuals such as wheat or ryegrass. The perimeter and cross fencing of the ranch is in good condition, with sections constructed in the last few years.
Elevations range from a high of 326 feet near the front gate and gently falls to a low of 276 feet in the Pooles Creek bottom where it exits the property in the southeast corner. The relatively shallow upland channel of Pooles Creek meanders through the property for approximately one mile. Pooles Creek appears to have intermittent springs charging it during wetter periods throughout the year and is a haven for wildlife.
The ranch enjoys frontage on the Interstate 45 feeder road between the Highway 21 and Highway 75 exits, both offering easy access to north and south bound traffic. The frontage is serviced by a two-way traffic road and there is a small amount of frontage on the northern end along FM 3091. Road noise is surprisingly absent once into the interior of the property, offering the combined benefit of location and privacy. The ranch is centrally located approximately 85 miles north of The Hardy Toll Road in north Houston, or 132 miles south of Dallas at I-20. The only Buccees on Interstate 45 is in Madisonville at the Highway 21 exit. The nearby Madison County Airport offers Jet-A fuel availability and 3,200 feet of runway.
Pooles Creek Ranch is an easy to enjoy ranch property in the path of progress. The location assures stability of your investment, but the ranch is private and easy to enjoy with family, friends, and a nice set of cows.
