Dream of living in a magical fairy tale cottage? Here is the home you’ve been waiting for.
Fall in love with the “gingerbread” accents, the dormers in each bedroom, the walk-out balcony, wrap-around porch, and unique antique features throughout. Main floor has 4 eclectic exterior doors – one with stained glass, one with etched glass, and all with unique carvings. A beautiful archway with original doors and hinges invites you from the living room to the dining room. Original and historic replica trim, doors, floors throughout – all trim is unpainted except for the kitchen and full bath, just waiting for restoration to its former glory.
The home features 2 large bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a living room, formal dining room and a bonus room off of the dining room that can be used as an office or kid’s play room. Kitchen has a bar opening to the dining room perfect for visiting with guests. All major systems – including plumbing, electrical, sheetrock, HVAC were completed by the previous owner. The home has central air and heat, on two units (upstairs and downstairs).
Backyard patios, gardens, and firepit area offer a peaceful, secret garden oasis. Perennial plantings are staggered by season – so nearly year-round something is in bloom, including Texas Mountain Laurel, Coral berry, Texas violets, Lantana, Antique Roses, Turks Cap, Crepe Myrtle, Purple Coneflower/Echinacea, Trumpet vines, Honeysuckle, and many more. Cardinals, mockingbirds, doves, blue jays, hummingbirds, finches, and butterflies make the gardens a home as well.
Large yard is fully fenced, with gothic French Victorian wood fencing facing the front and alleyway, and including an enclosed side yard for kids or pets to enjoy. Off-street parking on concrete pad behind home, with locked gate and alley access.
Property additionally features a small garden/potting shed, as well as a large shed with electricity, ceiling fan and a loft, and could be converted to a “she shed”, art studio, guest room or retreat space. The two structures were built by the previous owner to replicate the original property’s layout, which included an outhouse and a barn.
