HOME: Step back into nostalgia in this 1970 home with original light fixtures and décor. The 2,414 sqft. home has a large open-concept kitchen and den combo, ahead of its time. Brick arches accent a built-in desk and refrigerator area in the kitchen with stained glass lighting over the breakfast area. Windows are splayed across the back of the house lending views of the nestling oaks and countryside landscape. Opposite the kitchen is the stone fireplace leading up to the vaulted ceilings accented with wood beams. Step out onto the back deck and enjoy your morning coffee sitting under the live oaks or entertain your friends in the evening watching Bosque County’s beautiful sunsets.
In keeping with modest home sizes in the 1970s, there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The isolated master bedroom has dual vanities, a shared closet and shower facilities. There is a greenhouse and hobby room outside the master suite that, with a little TLC, could bring it back to its former beauty. On the opposite end of the house lies the second bedroom and bathroom.
The game room, complete with a bar which had previously resided in the Driskill Hotel in Austin, has a pool table with plenty of room for seating and entertaining guests. The spacious area has views showcasing the South end’s highest elevation on the property. There are also views of the nestling oaks on the West side of the property.
