This impressive shell limestone residence with original red terra cotta Spanish tiled roof and black metal casement windows was built by Judge William C. Hurst and his wife, Esther, using renowned Dallas/East Texas architect Percy Zimmerman. This 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home is just over 4,000 sq ft.

The main level is perfectly planned for entertaining. Beyond the impressive foyer at the entrance is a den, formal living area, sunporch, dining room, breakfast room and kitchen. With all 3 bedrooms, a den, a living area, a sleeping sunporch upstairs, you have a choice of stairs or an elevator to connect you between floors.

The home has many original details still today; including original tiles, hardwood flooring, stained glass, original copper gutters, lanterns, ironwork (original designer drawings are featured in The Meadows Museum at SMU), quartz, and a historical fireplace in the den with a mantel that is built of rocks gathered from many parts of the continent. There is a rock from the Alamo, from the Supreme Court Building in Washington, from Mt. Vernon, a piece from Monterrey Mexico, chips from the gold mine in the famed Cripple Creek, a garnet from Alaska and many others.

The exterior beauty of the home is highlighted by a large backyard terrace with lovely mature gardens and trees. There is also an original greenhouse with a water well on the property that has been restored.

This was the first house built on Sixth Street in Nuggett Hill and holds a special place reserved right in the middle of town; surrounded by the bell chimes of First Christian Church, Trinity Episcopal Church and First United Methodist Church. Come see this historic Longview gem!!!
