Turn-of-the-last-century home endowed with the character and charm only the passage of time can impart--yet is in excellent condition. The home was built in 1911 by the Fagg family and was purchased from an heir by the present owner in 2004. Since then, the home has been wrapped in composition overlapping siding, received a new composition shingle roof, most of the original pine flooring has been refinished, custom-made blinds for the windows installed, and it has been painted through-out. The 1788 sq. ft. of living space (according to owner) is divided into a living room, dining room, kitchen, utility room with washer/dryer hook-ups, office, 3 bedrooms and 1 and bathrooms. There is a fireplace in the living room and a second fireplace in the master bedroom. Ten foot ceilings and large windows add space and light; central heat and a/c and ceiling fans increase the comfort factor. A wide covered front porch wraps around one side of the house and a second porch runs the length of the rear of the house.
The most exceptional feature of this property is the gardens surrounding the house. In addition to 11 pecan trees, Texas ash trees and other large shade trees, all manner of flowering plants, shrubs and bulbs plus areas of vegetable gardens and herbs occupy the entire lot. The lot covers a city block being 0.686 acres, according to the survey, with curbing and paved road frontage on 3 sides. There are 3 storage buildings and chain link fencing on 3 sides on the backside of the property. All city utilities.
