    Very typical house of this age. The owners have been good stewards. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not crazy about the kitchen or bathroom, but considering the condition of the place and the original features intact, I wouldn’t complain. Lots of great lighting, a high-tank toilet, pretty wallpapers, nice big lot. A fantastic old house for someone who can pay for it!

    Terrell is near enough (east of Dallas) to be considered a bedroom community of the sprawling metropolis. Victorian houses of this kind with this level of intactness are now rare in Texas. They most often survive in smaller communities and there’s a sprinkling of them remaining in smaller towns surrounding the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. Gainesville to the north, Waxahachie to the south, Weatherford to the west and Terrell to the east all have some survivors from the late 19th century. (other towns to the east and north of Terrell have even more)
    I agree that the folks who lived or still live in this house were/are good stewards. Very pricey Bradbury & Bradbury “Neo-Grec” reproduction Victorian wallpapers were used in the entry and other Bradbury patterns were used as friezes/borders in some of the other rooms. Nice to see a surviving “sleeping porch” which was considered essential in hot summers Texas in the days before air conditioning. While still warm at nights, they were far cooler than interior rooms and in a second floor location they could catch cooling breezes. The transom windows seen above the doorways also aided in air circulation in the summers. The sole stained glass window, some scarce fretwork, pocket doors, and nice millwork trimmed staircase provided a modest but adequate amount of visual drama expected in a Queen Anne style house of this period. The expansive wrap-around porch is another acknowledgement of dealing with the heat of Texas summers. Almost for certain the square porch supports are replacements for original turned posts with gingerbread corbels/bracket and a now missing balustrade with turned spindles. (or possibly Neo-Classical columns) I suspect the entry door is also a replacement from the same period (1910-1920) -a more ornate Queen Anne style door with a central pane surrounded by smaller paned border would have likely been the original. Considering the work that has gone into this house, now with the added benefit of central air condition as well as an acre plus level lot with verdant landscaping, the price seems reasonable. I believe Terrell is near enough to Dallas to be within commuting distance and one might check to see if DART (Dallas light rail transit) extends out to Terrell or will be in the near future. There’s quite a bit of suburban and exurban business activity from Terrell into Dallas as well.
