The Ranches at Bar-V-Bar represent a very rare and unique opportunity for a limited number of people to purchase a portion of this Historic Central Texas Ranch and begin their own legacy. The Monteith Family went to great lengths in the planning of this community and quality covenants were created to protect the integrity of the locale as well as the property values going forward. Their intent is offer large, spacious tracts for single family homeowners that yearn for peaceful, clean, country living. Conveniently located to several cities but far enough away to appreciate the star filled sky at night or a nursing Whitetail Fawn at its mothers side. Don’t miss your opportunity to own a part of this “Special Piece of Texas”.
Our Legacy: The Ranches at Bar-V-Bar represents the first ever partition of our Texas ranch. Founded in 1905 by Arthur MacArthur Monteith, the ranch has been in continuous operation for over 114 years. Arthur Monteith was the epitome of the country lawyer of his time, practicing law in the hills of Salado and Belton until his death in 1913. His son, Walter Embree Monteith took over the management of the ranch and established our iconic -V- brand, which has been synonymous with fine hoof stock for generations. Walter led a colorful and distinguished life. He fought with the British in the Boer War in South Africa, served as a District Judge in Houston and was elected Mayor of Houston. He then became Chief Justice of The First Court of Appeals of the State of Texas until his death in 1953. Despite his career obligations, he made time to spend every holiday and most weekends at his beloved -V-. Walter's heirs are also attorneys and have prepared the following covenants and restrictions to the exacting standards of Arthur and Walter Monteith. Our collective family goal is to protect property values, maintain a classic hill country setting and be good neighbors. Several generations of Monteith's still live on the ranch and plan to be buried there, just as their ancestors have done.
