Antiques fairs, fabulous local restaurants and watering holes, rolling hills and a sky filled with stars. . . Round Top and its environs beckon louder than ever. We scouted the area for the most picturesque farms — and an antiques venue as well — all available for sale.
Who doesn’t fancy having their own rural retreat?
This beautiful new modern farmhouse-style home is filled with natural light, thanks to walls of windows — all the better to showcase the bucolic property filled with live oaks. You’ll find us with a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc by the firepit après, a stroll through the 1.5 miles of trails.

Triple Creek Ranch
This dogtrot cabin dates to 1800, pre-Texas independence, and has ties to Stephen F. Austin. A little trivia for your guests: Sam Houston slept here. Triple Creek Ranch is a quintessential Round Top country retreat — the historic main house, guest cottage, barn with game room, gardens, orchard, and chicken coop are all about rustic charm. With more than 97 rolling acres, Triple Creek feels worlds away, but it’s only 1.5 miles from Round Top town square.

The Lush Life
More than 89 acres of landscaped perfection give this ranch a wow factor. Native wildlife pasture, hay meadow, and scores of irrigated trees and flowers along manicured paths are the perfect escape from city life. The equally impressive home is ideal for entertaining. We imagine ourselves tending to our topiaries in the climate-controlled solarium.
