411 East Creek Street , Fredericksburg, TX 78624
4040 sqft (375 sqm)
This beautiful, historic property was built of native limestone in 1906 and graces the banks of Baron’s Creek just 1-1/2 blocks off Main Street in downtown Fredericksburg, Texas. Carefully restored and enlarged in 2006, this home has all modern conveniences and comforts, while keeping true to its humble origin. Crafted of limestone, plaster, and hand-finished walls of Pedernales River sand, with floors of reclaimed long-leaf pine, the restoration and renovation work were a labor of love.
The high ceilings are bead-board, and windows were carefully restored while some new ones were custom built to the original standards with antique glass. There are two large living areas, three bedrooms and three baths, and a one bed, one bath guest house. The two original basements are wonderful for storage of treasures and wine collections. With custom built, reclaimed pine cabinetry, Viking appliances, and beautiful wood counter tops, the spacious, open-plan kitchen is perfect for gathering friends. The expansive master suite includes a fireplace with sitting area, separate shower, antique tub, and very generously sized closet, just steps from the garden providing privacy and comfort for the owners.
Sitting on 1.24 +/- acres are porches, patios, grape vines, an outdoor kitchen, several garden spaces, a rose bush lined, gentle rock stair to the creek, and wonderful views of wildlife, making this property perfect for large gatherings of friends and family. Only a two minute walk to Main Street and with R-2 zoning which allows for B&B rentals, this is truly a unique and fabulous home.
