Built in 1909, this 2 story Victorian home is a jewel sitting on 1.3 acres. It comes with 5 bedrooms, three baths. Curbside appeal begins with flowering crepe myrtles and two large oak trees as a spacious, colonnaded wrap-around front porch welcomes you.
Entering the front door reveals 12 foot ceilings downstairs, a columned arch and pine floors throughout the house. Features include a double parlor with a gas fireplace, picture window and pine pocket doors. All downstairs rooms have pine doors with transoms, trimmed by more pine, all which match the 32” x 84” windows. Beaded board wainscoting lines the hallway, the stairway, guest bathroom (which has the original claw foot tub) and the kitchen.
CA/CH was added in 1993, along with modernizing and expanding the kitchen to include a large island and a a family room. A butler’s pantry leads to the formal dining room with built in china cabinet. The dining room is painstakingly restored to Victorian splendor with 14 types of handscreened Bradbury & Bradbury wall paper on the walls and ceiling. Bradbury paper is accented in several other rooms also.
Three of the 5 bedrooms are upstairs, along with one bathroom. One room has a large walk- in closet. Large attic space for storage.
Two other porches compliment the front wrap-around porch. A circular concrete driveway leads to a two car Porte-Cochere for covered parking. A concrete deck is next to the 30’ x 13’ fiberglass pool. A 13’ x 12’ separate pool house includes a shower bathroom for outdoor use, as well as washer and dryer connections.
The large yard has several large producing pecan trees. The stone lined, original hand dug water well still functions, but is covered.
