    1901 Folk Victorian
    Chestatee, GA

    Build date given is 1920 but this is closer to the 1890’s (-ish, somewhere in there.)

    What happened to the rest of the kitchen? I mean, I would just live on that cute porch, but a girl’s gotta eat!

    Southerners have the best porches. 🙂 The symmetry here is tight as a drum. LOVE those detailed tower attic windows! Lovely exterior color story. A house book cover girl for sure.

    One day left to add to your tenuous faves!

    I do live that porch and how it wraps around the tower. The kitchen does seem a little abbreviated.

    1897 Queen Anne Colonial
    Cadiz, OH

    According to the Handbook of Texas, Yorktown was named after early settler John York who established the site in 1846: https://tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/hgy01 It grew slowly and when a rail line went through in the mid-1880’s away from the existing townsite, growth continued near the rail line spreading out the town. Today, the sleepy little burg is a well preserved example of small town Texas among the dwindling numbers of those remaining. I was surprised after touring the town in Streetview, to see only a few period homes and even fewer large old houses. Here’s a barely visible turreted Queen Anne hidden behind dense vegetation: https://goo.gl/maps/YfyDdiAzfEv In other areas, what appear to be long vacant old houses dot the landscape but all are of the smaller cottage variety. While its entirely possible that I missed a couple of mansions in my limited streetview tour, the subject house of this post may have very well been among the finest homes built in the town. I would have to date this house to around 1900 (give or take a few years) based on the architectural details. It belongs to the Queen Anne style family but was probably designed and built by a local contractor. Looks to be move in ready.
    If the streetview had been taken in winter rather than at the end of Spring or summer houses and featured hidden by the lush vegetation might have been visible. The downtown has several charming old buildings and a historical museum. The population peaked at 2,596 in 1950, dropped to 2,092 in 2010 and now the 2016 estimate puts it at 2,164 showing a slow but steady growth trend. Unfortunately, the small community is too far from San Antonio for commuting to work but the city of Victoria is about a half hour’s drive away. Yorktown has an annual Western Days festival every October that brings in thousands of attendees. (Wikipedia)
