Off market. I like the staircase! Circa 1893. On 3/4 acres in Texas. $187,795

January 10, 2023

I like how the staircase turns off into two directions upstairs. This home was built in 1893. It is located on .75 acres in Marlin, Texas. The home features a wrap around front porch, stained glass window, some hardwood floors, french doors and transom windows. I bet there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting. I would get the paint off the transom windows. The electrical in the home has been updated. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms and 2,644 square feet. $187,795

From the Zillow listing:


Beautiful victorian home located in Marlin ready for your special touches. This is an opportunity to restore a timeless home built over 100 years ago. Many updates have been started and the rest are just waiting for you to bring this beauty back. After taking in the porch that wraps around the home in true southern style, you will enter through the large wood door topped with a stained glass window. To your right, you will find the parlor with tall windows, tall ceilings and a beautiful fireplace. Across the entrance is another room with great possibilities that includes even more tall windows and lofty ceilings. Downstairs you will discover another winsome fireplace in the den which is open to the kitchen area. Downstairs there are also two full bathrooms, a small bedroom and a good sized utility room. Walk up the sturdy, split staircase to the additional three bedrooms and another full bathroom. Beautiful windows light up the upstairs rooms just as they do downstairs. The second level also includes a great storage room and another space that was likely previously used as guest quarters. Back downstairs, the enclosed space out back would make the perfect garden room. Electrical has been recently updated. All of this and nearly .75 acres. The details and workmanship of this home are unmatched in today’s construction. Come take a look!
