Lone Star Farm is Texas history personified. Whether you choose to use this historic property as a family compound or for a commercial B & B, it exudes a perfect combination of rugged simplicity and stylish charm. Positioned on 12.9 acres only minutes from the unique Central Texas town of Round Top, the significantly historic main home, cabins and entertainment barn are shaded by majestic Live Oaks and huge pecan trees. Sold turnkey, relics from the 19th and 20th century enhanced by all things Texana fill each of the 4 structures.
A classic piece of Texas-German architecture, the main home was built during the Civil War in 1863. Originally two rooms flanked a dogtrot hall. One hundred years later the addition of a kitchen, bath, laundry and bedrooms bring this piece of history into the current century. The white-washed, shiplap walls form a backdrop for a significant collection of antique and primitive furnishings and collectibles. The rooms are filled with examples of the finest Texas and German pieces. With the master bedroom down, antique stairs lead to an extra large loft and a separate second bedroom with access to the outside.
The oldest structure on the property, built in 1830, is a 2-story log cabin with original log walls. A ceiling-high stone fireplace forms the centerpiece of the living room. A sleeping loft and full bath make this cabin a cozy hideaway. A second one room house, Olma's Cabin, sleeps additional family and guests. Built in 1960, the barn is an entertainment delight. Features include a full kitchen with a commercial Garland range, wine cooler and small drinks and full sized refrigerators. The main entertaining space has a bar, a 9-foot long dining table and a lovely sitting area which opens to an outside deck.
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, the back 7 acres of rolling pastureland give the opportunity for horses and riding trails or for building additional structures in the future.
The property is sold turnkey. Come enjoy the country with us!
