What a beautiful home this is! How about that spacious wrap around porch! The Moore House was built in 1900. It is located on .73 acres in Seguin, Texas.

The home features a wrap around porch, hardwood floors, picture rails, pocket doors, vintage light fixtures, and wainscoting. That is a huge attic! Could be finished off for a lot of living space. Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 2,578 square feet. $399,500

From the Zillow listing:


Rare opportunity to own a piece of history with this Queen Anne Victorian home. The “Moore House” (with a historical designation) is a work in progress and is looking for someone to continue restoring it to its original grandeur. The interior retains architectural details from another time…massive pocket doors, transoms, a turret and 5 fireplaces. Some expensive items have already been completed (a new roof using polymer tiles with a 100 yr warranty, the house leveled, new plumbing and some updated electrical wiring). The fully floored attic is huge and was once used as a ballroom…lots of potential for additional living space. There is still much to be done and this beauty is just waiting for the right person to complete her transformation.
