  1. Now that’s expensive tile, but a different countertop in the kitchen would break up the non sight line profile. A nice architectural treasure for someone, wonderful to see non painted woodwork…

    a very sympathetic restoration of a beautiful house, love the woodwork, the light fixtures, the fireplaces, and pretty much everything else about this one. I bet it sells quickly.

    Very nice house. Big Spring is a nice little-ish town in west Texas. Probably hurting this week with the down turn in oil prices; but this house is lovely for anyone wanting a lovely home. It feels so sturdy and stable and protecting in this crazy time.

    I concur with the other comments shared-this is a fine home reflecting the changes occurring as the 1920’s ended and the 1930’s ushered in a period of austerity. The quality is still there but the lavish details of the Roaring Twenties are absent. It’s challenging to peg this house stylistically-there’s a little Colonial Revival, some Mission Revival, almost a Art Deco like front facade. All of the rooms appear to have a remarkable state of preservation and more recent changes are subtle in nature. All in all, this is a fine home of the early 1930’s era when home construction was slow throughout the country.

    Big Spring, as the name implies, was a source of water in an arid region of West Texas. Settlement at the site was sparse before 1900 as the arrival of the railroad in the 1880’s made the fledgling town merely a stop-over on the way to El Paso. In 1920, the first discovery of oil in what is known as the Permian basin occurred leading to an oil boom in the 1920’s that made the few other communities in the area, like Midland and Odessa, relatively wealthy. The Permian Basin oil region (currently at very low levels due to the oil crisis) changed the entire regional economy but has long been subject to upswings and downturns tied to the price of oil. This is one of the nicest homes I’ve seen from west Texas dating from this prosperous era.
