Regal Round Top ranch boasting endless possibilities hits market at $9.95M
Big-picture buyers will find something special about The Vine, a luxury property in New Ulum, about halfway between Houston and Austin, and just outside popular getaway spot/shopping mecca Round Top.
Currently used for weddings and corporate events, the 30-plus-acre ranch could easily be adapted to a private family compound. For those looking for an investment, there has been possible interest in turning it into a boutique hotel.
The place has many possibilities.
It's on the market for $9.95 million, to be sold at auction by Concierge/ Sotheby’s Auctions. It's listed by Rick Doak of Republic Ranches LLC.
Among its many amenities, The Vine offers seven indoor and outdoor venue spaces, including a vineyard, winery, a tasting room with a screened-in patio overlooking said vineyard, wedding chapel with high ceilings and room for more than 250 guests, and barn reception area. There's room to build a helipad.
Originally built in 2016, the thoughtfully designed space features fine detailing throughout, with high-quality finishes, stone detailing, reclaimed barn wood, and custom fixtures. All of the furnishings will stay with the property following the sale. The Vine's rustic luxury feel makes it a perfect investment for those seeking to capitalize on Round Top's ever-growing popularity. And the property's proximity to the city center is another attractive selling point.
Those looking for a second home can easily transform The Vine to their weekend getaway with additional outbuildings, and other structures and amenities. Pools, fitness centers, outdoor kitchens — the sky is the limit on what The Vine offers as far as add-on options. The surrounding land's natural beauty has been respected and has three stocked lakes and plenty of native wildlife including deer, fox, rabbits, quail, dove, turkey, and Texas songbirds.
Bidding runs from October 4 to 11, with starting bids expected between $1million and $3 million. Qualified showings are by appointment only. Interested buyers should email for more details.
