Welcome to the 221 Farm. This meticulously maintained 221± acre farm is 35 minutes west of Houston, just north of Brookshire. Originally it was the Buhler Ranch, recognized by the Texas Department of Agriculture as a Family Land Heritage ranch. With a completely renovated country farmhouse (built circa 1934) renovation was done in 2019 by Jake Houseberg Homes and Virginia Kelsey Architects, and a 24-stall Dillon Kyle architects barn, also built in 2019 by Jake Houseberg, the views over the polo field are glorious. Set in the woods beyond these improvements is an elevated sand exercise track and 100± acres of wooded fenced pastures for the horses, as well as cattle and a high-fenced pasture for all kinds of animals. Abundant wildlife can be seen, with a mix of deer and birds for hunting and bird watching. There is one small pond, a larger pond, and three wells for easy irrigation and barn water, plus two additional domestic water wells for horse and livestock troughs.
A perfectly updated 3 bed/3.5 bath country house, this fully renovated home with new bathrooms and kitchen still embraces the charm of a country farmhouse. The pointed arches in the entry are reminiscent of an old country church. The front living room has a wood-burning fireplace, and the dining room connects to the completely modern country kitchen. The family room and the porch all have huge windows with light coming in from all sides. The firepit, the pizza oven, and the screen porch keep the stars close at night. The 24-stall barn and the 3 extra guest houses or foreman’s house are laid out perfectly for privacy and security while everything is steps away from the barn, the trails, and the wildlife. The house includes Wolf 36” range, a Subzero 48” fridge, a Bosch dishwasher, Hoshizaki “Sonic Ice” nugget icemaker, and a Whirlpool washer/dryer. The barn was completed in 2015 and was designed to maximize the cooling of stalls through the chimney effect and alignment with prevailing breezes. The 24 stalls utilize Rocking J stalls, air-conditioned tack rooms, a utility room, and a bathroom. The utility room has a washer, dryer, Koolaire commercial ice maker, and one unconditioned feed room.
