Land Description

Here is the perfect turnkey mini farm, loaded with amazing features, and ready for new owners. If you have been searching for a hobby farm with a nice home - at an affordable price and a manageable size - you really need to see Madrid Farm. You can grow crops, raise livestock, cut hay, hunt and fish, and enjoy the quiet life in the country. Located in south Houston County, just outside the small town of Madrid, the farm offers all the advantages of good country living with “move-in ready” convenience. Madrid Farm's 37 acres feature:

• 1,665 sq ft, Ranch-style farmhouse with covered carport and enclosed storage

• Large metal barn with concrete foundation and several smaller sheds for storage

• Two stocked ponds with covered pavilion, power and water

• Five acres of farmland

• Four acres of hayfield

• 80' x 175' of irrigated grape vines on a sturdy metal trellis

• Two-acre Pecan grove nearing age of production and a variety of fruit trees

• Two deep wells

• Combination of hardwoods and planted pines creating great deer and turkey habitat

The 1,665 sq ft, 3Br/2Ba farmhouse was built in 1979. The bedrooms surround the kitchen and living space creating a warm and inviting feeling without being too large. There is a brick fireplace that was converted to gas but could be restored to original use. The utility room also serves as a mudroom and it has a good-sized screened in back porch for late afternoon or early morning sitting. A covered carport leads to an enclosed storage area. A large metal barn behind the house provides ample room for all your outside equipment and has a chain link front fence that can be locked for security. Several other barns and sheds provide covered storage for tractors, boats, etc.

The ponds are fed from natural springs, so they maintain constant levels with fresh, cool water, even during the dry periods. Stocked with bream and largemouth bass, you can expect to catch fish year-round at the farm. The hay fields produce excellent hay and are partially fenced. They could easily be converted back to improved pasture if you are thinking about raising some livestock. This property provides many options for the new owners. You could work the farm yourself or continue to lease it to a local farmer for hay and crop production. If you want to raise domestic or exotic livestock, fence some or all the hayfields and turn them loose.

This property is priced to sell so don't miss this opportunity to own your own farm - call and schedule your showing appointment today.
