THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN ONE OF THE FIRST HOMES BUILT IN ONE OF THE OLDEST CITIES IN TEXAS! Prepare to be stunned at how well this historic grand dame has been maintained and fall in love. Built in 1853, before Abraham Lincoln became President, this four bedroom, two and a half bath, 2530 square foot grand mansion sits on a huge corner, estate lot in a prime location, walking distance to all the quaint amenities of burgeoning downtown Seguin. She beckons from the street and invites you in from a classic front porch. High, 12 foot, ceilings greet you with a traditional floor plan awash with natural light from huge windows and gleaming hardwood floors. So much of this home is original -- window and door casings, brick art niche, stained glass window, crown moldings and baseboards -- that she bespeaks history with every step. Combine that with updated plumbing, electrical, foundation, central air and heat to give you all the best modern conveniences with all the magnIficent, old world charm. From your bright foyer, accented by art deco flooring and wall to wall windows, step into the formal dining space that graciously opens to formal living. Off to the right find a second bright living space, perfect for family room, home office or hobby room. Back through find the private master suite, tucked off the elegant dining room, behind original pocket doors. A stained glass window decorates above bay windows and enjoy a luxurious adjoining bath with a sleek renovated, walk-in shower and separate bathtub with tile surround, plenty of shelving, new vanity, window for natural light and two closets. The kitchen, open to a large breakfast nook, features granite counters, window over sink and access to a renovated half bath and mudroom off one side and the utility room, way too pretty in its own right, off the other. Head up stairs tastefully hidden off the cheerful breakfast nook and find you are welcomed by a cozy landing that doubles as a library. Here find a guest bath renovated with an art deco feel while still retaining history and three large bedrooms with banks of windows and lovely angles that simply wow you. One bedroom is open to a sunroom that invites a lazy day of reading with a view of your picturesque grounds and charming neighborhood. Outside, towering pecan trees shade the nearly 1/3 acre, fully fenced and level estate lot. Enjoy gardening in the raised beds, leaving plenty of room for rose gardens, swimming pool, play scapes and more. Imagine living in a home that transports you back in time to a gracious era before Texas was a state! Prepare to be stunned how well the owners have loved and maintained this gem over hundreds of years. Not many homes in Texas have a real live basement but this one does! Be part of a gentrifying neighborhood that is mere blocks to the quaint coffee shops and cozy restaurants springing up along Court Street. Take your daily stroll along the historic storefronts of downtown. All this just a quick hop to I-10 and 20 minutes from downtown San Antonio or 10 minute to the toll road to Austin. Try to find another move-in ready, ultra-convenient historic mansion at this affordable price and you'll run here to see her before someone else claims their own place in history!
