    Well, I’m not sure what it is about it – surely not the Dollar General next door – but I LIKE this place!

    I like this too. I’ve been in Kaufman many times when I lived in the area, but only to go to the Lowes and Chili’s. Now I’m sorry I didn’t explore.

    A streetview tour around this area suggests it was an early residential section off downtown as was common in the pre-automobile days. Based on the ornamental Gothic Revival peaked gable braces, the two-over-two sash windows, and the symmetrical facade and entry with sidelights and transom, I suspect this house dates from the 1870’s to 1880’s rather than 1900. More research might confirm that but doubtful it would matter to most potential buyers. If the original newel post remains, that could help to arrive at a more accurate date as well. The sometimes jarring juxtaposition of brand new commercial development in the middle of what was once a tranquil residential area is increasingly common in many growing Texas communities these days. Kaufman is 33.5 miles from downtown Dallas so its experiencing some of the outflowing growth occurring in the DFW Metro area. The house could greatly benefit from some interior TLC. There’s a chimney barely seen (also visible in the attic) but there may have never been any mantels; plenty of early Texas households in the post Civil War era managed to heat the entire house solely with cast iron heaters attached by stovepipes to chimney flues. Someone with vision and imagination could do a lot with this property.
