    The inside is pretty rough but at least it’s original and not ruined; I would love to fix this place up!

    Is it me? I count 3 bathrooms rather than 2.

      You are right, I didn’t even count the pics of the bathrooms, just went by what was on record. lol

        LOL – I’m kind of used to checking for myself as when hunting, buying and (now) selling; the room counts (mostly baths and/or beds) are off as often as not.

    I don’t think it needs a “complete restoration” at all! Just a little cleaning and minor repairs, I love it!!

    I’m with Cheryl Plato, I would to paint and clean up definitely. Possible minor change kitchen reconfigure. But I may scope behind walls with telescopic camera wand to check for insulation (or lack of) as well as mold/insect damage before I start pulling down drywall. Why break when doesn’t really need changing.

    Looks like a neat little town with a movie set central square. I can see the potential in the house, but waking up here wouldn’t be my fondest dream.

    Goliad is a small town of less than 2,000 south of San Antonio. The town is steeped in early Texas history as a Spanish Colonial settlement: (Handbook of Texas History) https://tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/hjg05 However, this 1898 house was built long after the Spanish era. The interior photos make it look larger inside than the slightly less than 2,700 sq. ft. in the listing information. Style-wise, I’d call it a generic version of the Queen Anne style but its almost in the Folk style house category. Some of the details seem to suggest older than 1898 origins (the four over four windows) but alone are not enough to make claims of older age valid. Nearby Beeville to the south and Victoria to the north also have nice collections of Victorian era and early 1900’s homes and downtowns. There’s a nicely restored Victorian cottage across the street. Note the numerous ancient Oak trees…one even stands in the middle of the road near this house.

    Its austere interior does seem more Folk than Queen Anne. I see potential here but tons of work. Those old trees almost make it worth it though, they’re phenomenal!

    I would keep the trees and build a whole new house.

    I’m not sure I have the stamina for such a refurbishment, but it’s an interesting place.

    The oak tree alone is worth the price of the house.
