    Very lovely, beautiful woodwork and GREAT curb appeal. The shade of grey-ish blue in the one bedroom is particularly nice with the dark wood trim. The enclosed ‘garden room’ is so comfy looking, perfect for a mint julep and a book. Then I came to the attic. Oh my word. Don’t we all wish we had an attic like that? It would make such a delightful studio space. So clean and neat—not even a cob web! 😉

      Absolutely and without a doubt that attic would become my winter bedroom. Any spiders that happened to appear would be left in peace.

      Remember..wherever you may be on this planet, you are never more than 4′ away from a spider.

    The house is awesome. I did a street tour and part of the main town is closed, that’s sad.

    When I look at a listing here, the first thing I do is look at the “street” view. The first thought that came to mind when looking at the neighboring houses was, “to the manor born.” The grand manse surrounded by the serfs LOL! I DO love brick streets and a couple of years ago went back to my hometown and was surprised the town had retained some of the original brick streets in residential areas. Such a bright, airy house but the light beige/cream carpeting would not last long with my four fur chidren.

    Beautiful home. Love the floors in the attic. Maybe white oak? I’d paint all the ceilings in the home a very pale shade of blue. Pull up all the carpet and refinish the floors. Remove the wallpaper. Some nice colors in the rooms. I’m always looking to see how the homes are heated and cooled.

    What a lovely charming house. The garden room is gorgeous — love it when some of the outdoors comes inside. I also quite like the furniture in the dining room and the rest of the house. I’d be happy with this home as it is. Very appealing.

    Pull up the carpeting and do a few minor re-decorating tasks, and you’re good to go! I bet the floors under that wall-to-wall are gorgeous.

    I love the exterior of this house with it’s wrap around porch on two floors. That said, I also think this home didn’t look that way from the start!

    Neo-Classical or Classical Revival homes were very popular in Texas in the first and second decades of the 20th century until the outbreak of WWI. I think these houses reminded some of the older folks of the old Antebellum Greek Revival mansions of the mid-19th century but except for the use of Classical design elements, they differ substantially. In small towns like Kerens (founded by the arrival of the railroad in the early 1880’s) such large homes were often the residences of Bankers, Judges, and leading businessmen as well as their families. Not a whole lot of Kerens’ downtown remains in streetview but it is not very distant from the larger city of Corsicana going west on Hwy. 31 or Athens, TX, going east. The house itself is very nicely appointed with tasteful updates and almost a Bed & Breakfast decor inside. As others have noted, everything looks fresh and move in ready. Kerens is about 70 miles southeast from Dallas by way of Hwy 31 and Interstate 45 going north. While that would probably preclude commuting to the DFW area for work an increasing number of jobs are now remote at-home positions so for some that might work. I too appreciate the old brick streets that used to be found in almost every Texas community both large and small. While asphalt and concrete streets have replaced bricks streets in most larger communities a fair number of small towns, like Kerens, retain some of their brick paved streets.

    Gracious me! Gorgeous! Such a grand home. Love the porches. Those diamond paned windows above the fireplace are so pretty. I want that vintage white stove!

    My husband and I are looking for a new home. We like the selection on Old House Dreams. I personally like this house, especially the old woods. This house is grand from the moment you see the front view to the very last picture. Also a bonus is the 900 sqft not included in the sqft. This is definitely on my save list.
