An Early Texas Vintage Home
This property showcases an early 1900's home with the desired dog trot, sleeping room, parlor, and kitchen area with not only a sink, but running water. This must have been a luxury in this early home. And as expected of this era, there is sleeping attic space that is accessed by a stair ladder. All of the original doors, window sashes with original wavy glass, ship lap plank walls, and chamfered ceiling remain in place. The paint colors are typical of the time and some of the original wood surfaces have been enhanced to typify the era and age. The long leaf floors remain original to the structure with enhancement provided through selective aging and stenciling. This structure is made very comfortable with central air and heat and ceiling fans.
The bonus to the original structure is the attached carriage house which is in reality self contained living quarters. This fairly recent addition is very well done with appropriate windows, flooring and finishes which are complementary to the original structure. The kitchen has furniture-like cabinetry and cabinet tops that become an asset as this area is a part of the very large living space. The loft sleeping area is accessed by a plank open stair and is quite open and roomy. A downstairs small bath area shows off a Texas tumble stone tile covered dressing table with sink. Also, the tub has a surround of the same stone to accommodate a shower feature. The carriage addition has its own central heat and air.
This large lot includes a sizable carport, split rail and picket fencing, a pergola and storage building. The yard was xeriscaped in 2002 with many of the older plantings preserved, i.e., antique roses, and a lovely oak tree and other small plantings.
Please call for an appointment for a private showing of this outstanding vintage Texas home located in a very progressive small town half way between Houston and San Antonio right off Interstate 10.
