In 1908, a prominent Central Texas family built a new home in Brady. It was the White family, W. N. and Nina White. They were a ranching and banking family, and were community and church leaders. The home was built on elevation above the courthouse and the downtown area.
It was a large, beautiful home with architectural features that are rarely found today. This home is now on the market. The one-of-a-kind property has over 3,400 feet in the main house, plus an apartment and guest quarters.
The exterior is a very solid cut limestone and brick construction. A wide covered porch curves around 2 sides of the home. Both the exterior and interior are historically accurate, with numerous period pieces and features in excellent condition.
In the living room/parlor at the front of the house is a double fireplace, which also opens to the adjacent living room. The flooring catches the eye, it maple hardwood with a beautiful inlaid walnut design.
The dining room has more of the striking inlaid hardwood flooring, the fireplace, the thick walls, and a crystal chandelier.
The kitchen was completely remodeled in 2011. It has tile flooring, 3 ovens and a bread warmer, stainless appliances, and granite counters. The cabinets are all new and have a number of rollouts, including 2 spice racks.
The master bedroom is 15 by 15 feet with a full bath. It features an additional 12 x 9 sitting room, an ironing board in the wall, hardwood flooring, and a hidden closet in a closet.
Each bedroom is roomy, with hardwood flooring and private bath.
The main house also includes 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a cedar closet, den, and a study. The study has built-in bookshelves with beveled glass cabinet doors.
Just outside the kitchen is a fairly new apartment, one bedroom, one full bath with a kitchen and a laundry room. Just behind that is a separate guest cottage with one bedroom and another full bath.
The grounds are attractive and inviting, with numerous shade trees. It is spacious, nearly an acre, and features a gazebo and a 2,400 square foot entertainment building.
Lots of history is well preserved here, and yet it is fully equipped for today's lifestyle. The home has new wiring, new plumbing, and 3 buildings all have new roofs.
