Own Your Own Dream Farm Retreat

BY // 03.15.17

Everyone seems to be decamping to the hill country, specifically the Round Top, Burton, Fayetteville, and Brenham environs, for a front seat to the twice-yearly Round Top Antiques Fair. We scouted three of the most picturesque farms for sale so you can join in on the pastoral fun.

Beautiful country farmhouse, dating to 1880-1920, situated on 115 acres in Brenham. The fully-fenced property has wraparound porches, a swimming pool, barns, working pens, pond, and creek.

Centuries-old live oaks sprinkle more than 200 acres of farmland with elevations reaching above 430 feet. The vintage-style farmhouse, built in 1962, with front porch and dormer windows, is just 10 minutes from Round Top. Skull Creek winds through the property, with a charming 15-foot waterfall.

Mature live oak and pecan trees along a gated driveway leads to a European-style farmhouse built in the 1960s and remodeled in 2016. A two-story living room with vaulted-beam ceiling and the master suite that overlooks the pool have views of the 51 acres. A stocked pond, large barn, and cross fencing for hay or cattle complete the pastoral fantasy.
