    I love the old bricks with “Corsicana” stamped on them.

    2nd interior pic down, on the right you can see a glimpse of the staircase. This listing is brand new, perhaps more photos will come soon (one can hope!)

      LOVE this house. So much wood <3 Neighborhood looks lovely, and there's so much green outside.

      In our 1920s service station remodeling project, we removed over 5,000 bricks from a courtyard to fix drainage issues. They were all smooth, red brick. Much to our delight, when we pulled them out, we found that they were a combination of Whiteselle Corsicana Cherry Reds and Abilene Texas Reds! When we put them back in, we left random bricks upturned so that you can see what they are, stamped "Corsicana" and "Abilene" … LOVE them 🙂 We recently acquired a bunch of antique D'Hanis brick that we're going to incorporate as well.

    I have a brick I found here on my property. It has kitty paw prints on it! One day, just because I’m one of those ridiculously curious people, I did a google search and came up with this:

    https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2013/02/1-kitty-2-empires-2-000-years-world-history-told-through-a-brick/273320/

    What are the odds!? And it’s even weirder because I live about 25 miles from Fort Vancouver.

    The color on the ceiling of the porch is mind-blowingly beautiful blue! And as for the rest???? When are we moving in?!?!

    I also wonder what is the function of that door top on the left (second picture of the interior).

    I used to live about 30 miles east of Corsicana and have been there many times. There are lots of lovely old homes there. It’s great to see inside one of them. This one is beautiful!

    To the person referencing the blue porch ceiling, the correct term would be “haint” blue. A southern variation of the word haunt. The reason for painting the ceiling blue, and other items on the home, was to keep spirits from entering the home. The thought was that spirits could not traverse water (blue), thus they could not enter your home if the ceiling, doors, etc. were painted blue. The other side effect was that insects and birds would not nest however that was probably because of the chemicals in the paint not actually the color.

    What a great house. I would love to see those fireplaces stripped of their paint and restored to the original brick. Other than that (and it’s a minor quibble), it’s perfect!
