Once in a Lifetime Opportunity

A rare opportunity indeed, to own one of Brenham's finest homes! This Grand Lady was built in 1923 by H.F. Hohlt, owner of the Hohlt Department Store in Downtown Brenham. He was a prominent business man and the house was widely known as the "Hohlt House."

Since being built, this lovely home has only had three owners. It was last purchased in 1962 and has remained in that family for nearly 50 years. Over the years it has been lovingly restored and updated. She is a showcase home full of grace, charm, and comfort.

Main Home

The Main home's architectural style is that of an American Foursquare, which is an adaptation of the Prairie Style, popularized by famous architect Frank Llyod Wright.

A central hallway on each floor creates an open feel and provides ease of access to all rooms. The home features 5 bedrooms, each with its own bath, and over 5100 square feet of living space. A formal living room, formal dining room, butler's pantry and country kitchen provide for easy and elegant entertaining and what was once a back porch is now a cheerful and comfortable sun room/study.

There are two bedrooms downstairs, and three bedrooms upstairs. At the top of the grand staircase is a large landing area and separate study/library.

Town Home

Located across the backyard from the Main House is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath townhome. This spacious home has been updated with Saltillo tile floors downstairs, large and open living room/dining room combination and a den with custom built-ins. (The den can be used as a fourth bedroom).

Upstairs you'll find 3 large bedrooms and a "Hollywood" style bath. This town house was ingeniously designed so that it can be converted into 2 large apartments.

Garage Apartment

Connected to the town house and situated over the 4 car garage is a 1405 square foot apartment which features 2 bedrooms and a "Hollywood" bath, and an open floor plan.

This property holds so much potential! Live in the big house and have 2 or 3 rentals in the back... mother-in-law house... commercial potential... the possibilities are endless! There is a total of 10 bedrooms and nearly 10,000 square feet of living space on the property!
