This Painted Lady is a Candy-Colored Dream Come True!
I’m getting major Willy Wonka vibes from this expansive Queen Anne. The massive wraparound porch, color scheme and turret are serving up slam-on-the-breaks curb appeal. The interior is all rich wood detailing, pocket doors, and fabulous wallpaper. The kitchen also delivers big time for all of us “please don’t gut the kitchen!” folks with retro tile and classic black and white checkerboard flooring. The owners have been devoted to this whimsical one for the past 26 years, with a 14 year stint running it as a popular Bed & Breakfast. I can see the love! This house is going to make someone’s dreams come true.

Imagine a simpler time, relaxing on the front porch of a large country home on a hill sipping lemonade. Built in 1897, this home sits in the historic district of Weatherford and overlooks the 1886 Courthouse with views of the city of Fort Worth on a clear day. The home was built and has served as a single family residence, but the current owners also operated this Queen Anne Victorian painted lady as a Bed & Breakfast for 14 years. The entire property has 10 bedrooms and bathrooms, which includes 2 guest suites with separate entrances, hot tubs and full bathrooms. The second floor boasts a grand ballroom with a domed ceiling and acoustic tiles. The home has been immaculately maintained by the current owners for 26 years.
