About This Old House

At over 150 years old this purple lady is just hitting her golden years! Built in 1868 this two story brick building has been a part of the historic City of Calvert since the very beginning. A product of the successful cotton farms of the Brazos River Bottom the city of Calvert grew quickly and was at one time one of the great cities of Texas boasting the worlds largest Cotton Gin and a booming economy behind it. A reflection of this can be seen in both the downtown, where the building is located, and in the many historic old Victorian and Plantation type homes that still grace Calvert today. Known as a antique hot spot in Texas, the City of Calvert can be a busy place throughout the year with shoppers moving along the streets and weekenders enjoying one of the many beautiful homes or BNBs located in the historic neighborhoods. The current owners have taken full advantage of this with their charming Antique shop located on the first floor of the building, along with making available the large lots located next door for artist booths and other events. Located on the second floor of this recently gutted and semi renovated building you will find a blank space ready for the next owners loft apartment, airbnb, or useable space. With the only porch if its kind in town this building has some of the best views in town and offers a cool place to hang out on those long summer evenings. The current owners have done lots in regard to the long term care of a older building like this one. A new roof with a 15 year warranty was recently added along with a complete gutting and replacement where needed. Other added features include modern electrical, central Ac and heat, new high quality paint on the exterior, and many other very visible changes and upgrades have occurred. Conveniently located half way between Baylor University and Texas A&M this building is only 1 hour and 45 mins from Austin, 3 hours to Dallas/FT Worth, and 2 hours to Houston making this property right in the center of everything. Price includes the building and the two lots next to it as seen in the photos. No restrictions, do as you like in this building! Call Cody for more info and thanks for looking!
