Description

First time on the market in 166 years! Texas history speaks as you step back in time and into this historical beauty. Once the largest home in Washington County you can assume many famous Texans graced the doors to this welcoming home. Situated on 217+ acres in Independence, Texas is this beautiful, completely intact, southern plantation home built in 1855 using Greek Revival architecture and a recorded Texas Landmark Home. This architectural gem was originally constructed as a single story home and rolled nearly three-quarters of a mile on cottonwood logs to its current location in 1856. Once relocated, a second story was constructed staying consistent to the original design and timeless elegance. This iconic home was built of hand-hewn red cedar & pine and boasts 4,742 SF and huge 11 ft. deep porches leading through double doors into the 10 ft. wide central hall featuring a beautiful walnut and cedar staircase. There are 4 fireplaces, 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, basements, original cedar and pine floors, walls and ceilings (11 ft. downstairs & 10 ft. upstairs) and some original light fixtures all sitting on a foundation of native shale. Surrounded by a grove of 100+ year old live oak trees the other astonishing features of this property include a stone smokehouse, 2 original log-pen servant quarters (Uncle Finn's and Aunt Carolines), blacksmith shed, log-pen barn, hay mow and corn crib, an outhouse, guest house with another barn and a mounting block for the ladies in long skirts to easily get in carriages or on their horse side saddled. The property is rolling with elevations ranging from 390 to 285 and features 2 ponds, heavily wooded areas, open pastures, rock outcroppings and a beautiful creek running through the property that feeds into Independence Creek which meanders along one of the property lines. Located 1 mile from the center of town (Independence) and offers very easy access to Brenham and College Station. A rare find, own a part of this stunning preservation of Texas history! Additional acreage is available.
