Rancho Martita West is one of the most impressive equestrian properties on the market today. Every aspect of its design and development was engineered and constructed with a focus on quality and functionality and an indisputable attention to detail. If you are in the market for a premier equestrian facility, you will be hard-pressed to find a more stunning property with high end improvements in a better location. Just 7 miles west from Brenham on FM 389, which the locals claim as one of the most scenic roads out of town in the most attractive part of Washington County. The town of Brenham has a legendary past with a modern feel. Brenham also holds a reputation as a hot bed for the cutting horse industry and is home to the American Cutting Horse Association and several renowned cutting horse training facilities. The pastoral setting on this +/- 67 acre property is unrivaled anywhere else in the state. Rolling, productive pastures, seasonal creek, a fishing lake, productive hay pastures and ideal curb appeal make this offering truly special. There is 980 ft of both sides of Rocky Creek that gently flows through the property during normal rainfall years. This creek bed is a combination of narrow, shallow sandy bottom shoal and wider, deeper holes of water. The banks of the creek are heavily wooden and provide cover and shelter for whitetail deer and other native wildlife. In addition to Rocky Creek, there is a small lake, located within view of the main barn stocked and ready to be fished. Approximately 30 acres of the property is in hay production historically round baled with yield of 4 bales per acre. Every grassy acre at Rancho Martita is productive and part of a larger pasture management system suitable for horses or cattle. A total of 9 horse paddocks constructed out of top rail pipe and no-climb horse friendly mesh wire fencing are functional and in place. Six of these paddocks have enclosed loafing sheds with freeze-proof water troughs. Regardless of your equine discipline, the current pasture design, layout, construction, and equipment allow for efficient management of your horse operation from day one. Water distribution, storm water drainage as well as electrical distribution systems were constructed to subdivision specs and buried to a depth of approximately 36 throughout most of the improvement area. This increased cost incurred during infrastructure construction resulted in increased safety and reliability for owners and their animals during inclement weather. The main road system throughout the ranch is built from a desirable local red gravel and allows for all weather access and reduces dust in dry times. Extensive welded pipe fencing throughout the ranch was built to last a lifetime and adds to the properties attractive curb appeal. There is one high-volume water well that services the barns, arena and pasture troughs and there are 2 independent septic systems at various structures throughout the ranch. Entering the ranch, your focus immediately shifts to the imposing and impressive covered arena and horse barn area flanked by ample concrete parking areas. The 25,000 sqft arena structure is roof-over galvanized steel and was professionally and custom designed by MidWest Steel. The roof beams sit on a concrete runner slab with LED lights and covers the 100x200 cedar post-lined arena with multiple gates, 2 Big Ass Fans, remote controlled Pro Cutter flag, holding pens and sunshades. Adjacent to the arena is a shaded barbeque cooking/entertainment area a covered cedar post lined 6-horse programmable walker and an elevated arena viewing area. This arena structure also houses (5) Priefert horse stalls and 2 small animal kennels. On the west side of the arena there is a 75x30 carport area for vehicle and trailer parking with electrical outlets for trailer for plug-ins. This polished, jewel of a ranch, is a well-designed, well built and well-maintained t
