More About This House

Just shy of her 100th birthday, this still stately, but weathered farmhouse and an accompanying mix of comparably aged barns, sheds, pens and coops sits on some of Central Texas's richest and quickly disappearing blackland. In constant production for over 100 years and home to more than five generations of a hard-working farming family. Every detail-rich room, still with it's original hardwood floors, pine-trimmed doors and windows, beadboard and wainscoting bearing witness to their busy lives under her gabled roof and the daily work on the family farm. The home's rooms are still bright with sunlight from rows of antique, wavy-glass windows, the dining room and kitchen share her best and most decorative feature, an original pine and glass-fronted cupboard/passthrough, the Master bedroom features another of her charms, a petite music room built to house the family piano that's said to have inspired impromptu dances on her broad wrap-a-round porches. A "hidden" staircase leads upstairs to an expansive, open room with four separate areas, a dormer under every gable of her roof, each with it's own closet, unique row-crop view and built just for the farmer's daughters...The boys slept in a separate bunkhouse just outside the backyard gate. Not built to be grand or grandiose, intended instead to serve a working family, with good bones and thoughtful practicality, she's worse for the wear but worth one's time and investment. Still standing, wrapped by the land she anchors, patiently waiting for someone to rediscover her, understand her worth and fill her again with happy voices, lively music and good memories.
