Property Description

Dogwood Hill offers a rare and picturesque combination of Texas farmhouse appeal and the features and luxuries of a modern farm, ranch, family home, or private retreat. Nestled in historic Milam County less than a mile from Six Mile Creek and only 3 miles from the Brazos River, the original quiet homestead has blossomed over the years into a beautiful and functional estate central to Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio.

The 40-foot long front porch and 3 backyard patios provide plenty of space for enjoying the beautiful outdoors – rolling pastures and oak woods, with elms, pecans, and the namesake dogwood trees dotting the landscape.

The entry foyer opens on one side into a large living room, and on the other side into an open-concept great room, kitchen, and dining room, with beautiful original full-thickness wood floors.

The luxurious farmhouse kitchen offers extensive countertops and solid hardwood cabinetry, stainless steel farmhouse sink and prep sink, and stainless steel appliances including a large Sub-Zero refrigerator and Thermador gas cooktop and electric double oven.

A master suite with walk-in closet, solid brass plumbing fixtures, and whirlpool tub, and 4 additional bedrooms (2 of which also have walk-in closets), offer plenty of space for family living or get-togethers.

Extensive improvements and an existing agricultural exemption make Dogwood Hill a dream come true as a family farm, cattle ranch, horse farm, vacation place, or any combination!

A 36’ x 48’ horse barn offers room for four 12’x12’ stalls, a 10’x12′ stall area, a wash area with floor drains, and plenty of room for tack.

A 30’x50’ shop, with a dedicated 200 amp electric service, water to the building, and a multi-channel Ethernet connection to the house. The building includes a 500 sq foot closed-in and insulated area that opens onto a 50’ porch, and is perfect as an office or for conversion to guest quarters. The large clear-span shop area is perfect for automobiles, woodworking, or events.

A 42’x48’ cattle barn with a large open area and 8 reconfigurable stalls opens to pipe working pens, and has an additional 20’x48’ 3-sided addition. A separate 25’x38’ 3-sided barn is perfect for hay or equipment storage.

Extensive 50-year high-tensile net fencing, suitable for horses, cattle, and small ruminants, surrounds and cross-fences the property. There are an excellent mix of woods (primarily oak, interspersed with elm and dogwood) and of improved pastures (coastal and Jiggs bermuda grass and bahia grass). Two private water wells with full water rights provide water for the house, buildings, and livestock.

Only 45 minutes from Bryan/College Station, 55 minutes to Temple/Belton, and 90 minutes to Austin, Dogwood Hill is an extraordinary opportunity to enjoy Milam County’s heritage in a peaceful rural setting with abundant amenities.
