History of Cinco Ranch TX Real Estate

Cinco Ranch was once a working cattle ranch combined with a rice farm. Located on Buffalo Bayou, the ranch was the result of five families partnering to form an outfit called Cinco Ranch. Cinco is the Spanish word for five. The Cinco Ranch Venture conglomerate bought the land in 1984. They planned to develop the ranch into a housing community. It was designed by Newland Communities, and it opened in 1991, covering 7,200 acres 25 miles west from Houston. Most residents commute to the city for work. Cinco Ranch Real Estate is home to 8 school and several recreational facilities with plenty of green spaces. A complete history is found here.
