Editor's Note: Houston, the surrounding areas and beyond are loaded with must-have houses and properties for sale in all shapes, sizes and price ranges. In this continuing series, CultureMap snoops through some of the best and gives you the lowdown on what's hot on the market.

"Oh, give me a home". . . That could be the theme song for the buyer of this 205-acre parcel of beautiful rolling terrain in the heart of polo country, a stone's throw from Fulshear and 35 miles west of Houston. Of course, instead of buffalo, the new owner would be singing about horses.

The picturesque red barn, positioned amid lush rolling terrain, is outfitted with 10 horse stalls making it the perfect property for a working ranch. Or the acreage could be ideal for a family compound or a country retreat. The alluring landscape is dissected by Bessie's Creek which empties into the Brazos River.

Boasting 1,000 pecan trees, the property is part of the Pecan Acres Ranch at 35616 Vernon Frost Rd. and is unrestricted, meaning that developers could swoop in and create master-planned community. If that happens, we pray there will be no cutting of the beautiful trees.

Acreage: 204.7 acres.

Asking price: $10,750,000

Listing agent: Cindy Burns with Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty.
