c. 1914 Workingman's Foursquare
Chock Full of Original Details
$100, if you can move it this year
This ± 2,000 square foot farmhouse, originally constructed in 1914, contains many original materials and details.
The front of the house is accessed by a deep covered porch with classical order wood columns and balustrade. Front entry consists of wood door with three-quarter glass lite, two sidelites & triple transom lites with original beveled glass and integrated mechanical crank doorbell.
Original continuous plank hardwood floors extending wall to wall without interruption are common on the first floor. Tall, solid wood painted baseboards are also common at this level. The front hall features a formal entry portal to the living room consisting of classical columns on pedestals.
Most interior walls are original wood bead board construction, although significant portions have been overlaid with modern materials.
Original five panel solid wood doors with period appropriate architectural millwork frames and most hardware are present on the main floor. Among these is an oversized pair of pocket doors separating the Living Room from the Dining Room. First Floor windows are original double hung wood construction with operable counterweight operation.
On opposite sides of the house, the dining room and center bedroom have a full width bay window wall features. The house has a traditional front entry hall, living room, dining room, private back hall, three (3) first floor and two (2) second floor bedrooms, one (1) bathroom, eat-in country kitchen, large utility/mud room and ample upstairs storage. Second floor bedrooms and storage room were added into a portion of house attic in the early 1960’s. Following examination and review, the ‘Preservation Georgetown’ organization endorsed the house as having “Very Good Bones”.
It is located on County Road 110 between Georgetown and Hutto.
We would like the house to be relocated and restored. We believe it could become a valued contribution to the historical narrative of Central Texas as well as a source of pride to those who restore it and the families who live in it.
Would you be interested in acquiring this house for this purpose? It’s available for $100.00 to the first buyer who can demonstrate the ability to relocate or dismantle and remove the material by the end of this calendar year.
