Back of The Home With Pool & Spa
A classic Greek-Revival Mansion, The O.B. Robertson House in historic Gonzales, TX. It is the epitome of gracious living in the heart of central TX. 100+/- yr. Colonial in one of the Premier Historical towns in Texas. "Come and Take It"!!! Beautiful Columns, Porte Cochere, Pool, 100 yr. Old Trees, detached Studio/Garage. Truly one of the rare Jewels of Texas. Full attic and awesome basement. Wood floors, loads of windows. Ask about recent oil boom in Gonzales!

Built in 1910(Some records show 1913), and continually maintained by the four families that have called her home, this 4860+/- square-foot masterpiece of turn-of-the century craftsmanship is an extraordinary property.

O. B. Robertson came to Texas in 1875. He was an attorney before taking up banking. He built this beautiful Gonzales Mansion and moved in early 1914. In addition to banking, he was involved in farming, lumber and the Sunset brick Company.

The century old, red brick beauty, on over an acre of painstakingly landscaped grounds, anchors the eastern edge of the official Texas Historic Museum District. Her elegant entrance opens onto one of the most historic residential avenues in the state of Texas – the avenue of ancient oaks where Sam Houston, his troops, and the population of Gonzales heroically marched to Texas victory and Independence in 1836.

Today on that avenue opportunity abounds. Gonzales, the home of “Come and Take It” the battle cry where the first shot of the Texas Revolutionary War happened, is an irresistible, carefully planned canvas of historic homes, churches and museums, of public parklands and playgrounds, just ten minutes south of Interstate 10 on an inviting stretch of Hwy 183 as it winds its way to the Texas Coast. A short one-hour drive time to Austin and San Antonio and a little more to Houston and the Gulf Coast, Gonzales is among the most desirable locations in the state.

In the heart of the Eagle Ford Shale oil and gas activity, economic indicators place Gonzales as one of the wealthiest rural counties in the nation within the next five years. With its charming 19th century storefronts, five Texas History museums, and avenue upon avenue of elegant historic homes, the quality of life opportunity and economic potential of life in Gonzales today is unparalleled.

The O. B. Robertson Home, masterfully maintained and reinterpreted into 21st century luxury living, awaits the excitement of the next history- making century in Gonzales.
