L ongtime Houstonians Cone and Fourticq fell in love with Round Top's rolling countryside, as well as the people who live there. "It's a cool little town with cool people doing all kinds of unusual things you might not expect in a small Texas town," Fourticq says. Cone grew up on a farm in Austin County, not far from Round Top, and was familiar with the town's lively vibe. "You can go dancing or listen to live music, or go to a great restaurant," he says.

With seven-day notice prior to arrival, they can arrange car service from airports in Austin and Houston, and stock your refrigerator, pantry, and bar. For the uninitiated, a first trip to Round Top can feel a little like being marooned at sea. The town's only mercantile closes at 6 pm on weekdays and even earlier on Sundays, many restaurants are closed on Monday and Tuesday. "I tell people it's like a yachting experience — you have to plan in advance." Red Antler has already caught the attention of top interior designers. They won't name names, but "we've had a lot of prominent designers stay here from all over," Fourticq says. "One recently flew in from San Francisco, and there's a lady based in the Bahamas who's very well known." Recently the high-profile owner of a Dallas private club took all three bungalows for friends flying in from New York and Los Angeles. Fourticq and Cone filled a big silver bowl — shaped like a deer's head with antlers — with champagne, rosé, and white wine. "It was a huge hit, and they had a blast," Fourticq says.
