FM 954 Round Top-area Real Estate Find

FM 954 Round Top-area Property is a real estate find!

Ever dreamed of living outside, but with all the comforts of home? Well, look no farther than this Round Top lake house treasure.

Renee Diehl, an agent with Round Top Real Estate and sponsor of this article, is working with the owner — and designer/general contractor — of a unique outdoors-inside property near Warrenton in Fayette County that epitomizes the Round Top modern country style.

FM 954 Round Top area
A three-story home perched above a stocked lake awaits new owners near Round Top, Texas.

Built in 2012, the highly improved retreat covers about 24 acres and features a three-story glass house perched above a 4-acre lake stocked with fish. Constructed of steel and glass, the 2,700-square-foot main home offers three stories of living space, with an open-concept first and second floor ideal for relaxation and entertaining. Atop the social spaces rests the master suite, which encompasses the entire third floor with almost 360-degree views of the lake and Round Top countryside.

The outdoors served as the catalyst for the owner, who designed and oversaw construction. Through travels and experiencing many types of homes, the owner wanted family and guests to feel part of the outdoors while enjoying the home. Each floor of the home provides a window to the diversely scenic property dotted with ancient oaks, grasses and ever-changing wildlife. The native woods invoke a feeling of privacy — while peering through the glass during a rainstorm is a special experience.
