The John Howland Wood Mansion, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, beckons to individuals who have a passion for restoration and preservation. Though damaged by Harvey, this unique residence offers the opportunity to own a piece of history dating back to the late 1800's. Once the centerpiece of the Wood's Bonnie View Ranch, it is situated on .8 acre, high on a bluff overlooking Copano Bay, in Bayside. The original Greek Revival-style 3-story home contains approximately 3500 sq ft per floor, crowned with a widows walk capturing spectacular views. Recognized as one of the oldest homes in Refugio, the Wood Mansion has a rich colorful history, as noted in an article attached to "Documents" on the detail sheet. It is the only house in Refugio county on the National Register of Historic Places and is, therefore, extremely worthy of being restored to prominence in this South Texas community.

    The agents listing has additional photos but only showing what the property looked like before the hurricane.

    Streetview taken before the hurricane, but aerials show shortly after the storm. Darn you, Harvey.

    Ouch! But the old girl is still standing so there’s that. Hope someone can come up with the sale price plus the funds to restore it. I myself would be gun shy after a storm like Harvey.

    It would be a shame if no one buys it. Such a beautiful home at one time.

    Does anyone know if grants or anything like that would be possible in an instance like this? She is too beautiful to be lost. I could definitely see myself as the lady of this house!!

    Its been over a year since Harvey and looks like the roof is in real bad shape. Probably substantial water damage inside. You would think there was some insurance on the place that could be used to stabilize the roof. Without a water tight roof its only a year or two before this beauty is gone.
