Sprawling ranch in Texas bluebonnet mecca steps onto market for $7.75M
Anyone in the market for wide open spaces — where the views go on for days and the hills stretch all the way to the sky — should consider Big Step Ranch.
Located in the town of Chappell Hill in Washington County, the 186-acre property is on the market for $7.75 million, represented by Tonya Currie of Compass Realty.
The ranch offers killer views that span all the way to College Station, a modern farmhouse, a metal pergola wine arbor, and a sense that there are still places in the world where the only development is the wind blowing through the trees and the lonesome cry of a hawk overhead.
Sure to be tranquil setting, an onsite pond reflects the glowing Texas sun.
Set amid a stunning vista, with New Years Creek forming part of its boundary line, Big Step Ranch offers history and modernity in one epic Lone Star package. The farmhouse is a classic design, with killer modern amenities.
Massive, double-hung windows overlook the ranch's rolling grounds. In the kitchen, Thermador appliances will delight contemporary cooks. Wide, wooden floors and planked walls pay homage to Texas ranches past.
Big Step's house home sprawls across nearly 4,000 square feet, with four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. A wide porch is not only a natural welcoming space, but also a spot to while away the day under the ceiling fan.
Out back, a covered summer kitchen offers seating along with ample prep space make it the perfect spot for entertaining.
There's plenty of room on this spread to add outbuildings. A guest cottage? Multicar garage? Barn? There's space for all of the above, and more.
Chappell Hill is known for its lush fields of bluebonnets, for which people make pilgrimages each spring. It annually hosts one of the most popular bluebonnet festivals in the state.
