NEW PRICE! Lone Star Farm is Texas history personified. Whether you choose to use this historic property as a family compound or a commercial B & B, you will find a perfect combination of rugged simplicity and stylish charm. Positioned on 12.9 acres just minutes from the town of Round Top, the significantly historic main home, cabins and entertainment barn are shaded by massive live oaks and huge pecan trees. Relics from the 19th and 20th century enhanced by all things Texana fill each of the 4 structures on the property.
A centuries-old live oak, one of 5 on the property, spreads its canopy above the deep front porch of the main house, a classic example of Texas-German architecture. Built in 1863 during the Civil War, the low-slung house had 2 rooms flanking a dogtrot hall made of heartwood cedar logs. One hundred years later, the addition of a kitchen, bathroom, laundry, bedrooms and a dressing room bring this piece of history into the current century. Floors of long-leaf and knotty pine paired with white-washed, ship-lap walls form a backdrop for a significant collection of antique and primitive furnishings and collectibles. A wood-burning fireplace warms the antique filled living room on cold nights. The dining room, filled with examples of the finest Texas and German furnishings, is decorated with antler draped homespun swags. A 9-foot long pine farm table with benches salvaged from an old rural church will make your Thanksgiving reminiscent of long ago holidays. With the master bedroom downstairs, antique stairs lead to an extra-large loft bedroom and a separate 2nd bedroom with access to the outside. The bath is decorated with a white raw edged wooden countertop and a copper claw foot tub. The kitchen includes an Elmira range and Heartland wall ovens.
Built in 1830, a 2-story log cabin is the oldest structure on the property. With original log walls, a ceiling high stone fireplace forms the centerpiece of the living room. The upstairs bedroom has a plaster ceiling and the bathroom boasts the must-have claw foot tub. Olmas Cabin, an early 20th century one-room house sleeps additional family or guests. The cabin has a welcoming front porch, original beadboard and heart pine walls, a full bathroom with a claw foot tub and a large storage closet.
The barn, built in 1960, is an entertainment delight. More than 150 years later, it features a full kitchen with a commercial Garland range, wine cooler and a small-drinks and full size refrigerator. The main room includes a nine-foot dining table, bar and lovely sitting area which opens to a large outside deck. A covered patio and grilling area ensures that the party will go on regardless of the weather.
Remnants of a log smokehouse behind the main house and a pair of hand-dug wells, original to the property, add to the propertys historical mystique. Service buildings include an equipment garage, a well house and a storage shed. Two modern-era wells service the structures and supply the irrigation system used to water the lawns and Texas native plants. In addition to the front acreage, an additional 7 acres of rolling pastureland give the opportunity for horses and riding trails or land for building additional structures in the future. The property is sold turnkey.
From Round Top travel south on Hwy 237 1/2 mile to Hartfield Rd. Turn right and property will be on the right. Look for RTRE sign.
