Roznov Ranch

 Round Top, TX

In the early 1970s legendary Houston automobile dealer, Sterling McCall, and his wife Marianne started their search for a family retreat in the country. Not finding the desired combination of land and buildings, they purchased 200 acres, approximately 8 miles southwest of Round Top, Texas.

 

Over the years this ranch developed into a picturesque family compound that provided many hours of quality time for family and friends. Improvements include; a main house, a guest house, two retreat houses, a large social hall w/ commercial kitchen, a one room studio building, and an 7 bay automotive workshop.

 

Sterling McCall designed his compound so family & friends could have their private accommodations, gathering for meals, entertainment in the Social Hall, or one of the recreation areas. There is a rec building with attached garage, a heated swimming pool, tennis courts, and a pavilion with 2 commercial BBQ pits.

Location & Land

Located in the highly sought after Round Top, Texas area, less than 10 minutes from the Town Square of Round Top, one finds themselves in the heart of Fayette County, which is rich in history, where the original land grant from Spain to Stephen H. Austin was made. The storied Painted Churches dot the “roads less traveled” here, and add flavor to the culture of the country side. Just a 1.5 hour drive from either Houston, or Austin to these rolling hills, makes this a convenient weekend getaway for family and friends alike.

 

This gem of a property provides a rich diversity of woods, scattered trees, open pastures, rolling terrain, and abundant wildlife. Enjoy the summer breeze and take in the magical views of sunsets and stars. A wet weather creek runs along the southwest perimeter of the property, there is a pond and 4 acre Fishing Lake near the compound proper. An unique property like this rarely becomes available. Come experience it now, and imagine the lifestyle it could provide you.

 

 

Adjacent the Social Hall there is a rec room of approximately 1,188 sq. ft. air-conditioned space, with a large ¾ bath. The space is used for a Theatre room, Game room, and an Exercise area. Sparkling, spacious swimming pool, surrounded by a large entertainment patio. Tennis Courts and a Pavilion with 2 oversize smoker BBQ pits round out the entertainment facilities.
