This Charming Texas Cottage is the Definition of Historic Chic
Texas has no shortage of expansive mansions and rustic country digs. So when a luxurious property shows up that combines authentic 19th-century history with spacious ease, it has to be good.
The main house on this stunning Fredericksburg property revels in the natural texture of cottage living without sparing in luxury. Any aspiring dinner party hosts looking for a unique Texas-inspired space? This dining room brings back a sense of the Old West, but with a chic twist.
Giant slab tiles accent the kitchen, complete with all of the gadgets and a rustic dining table.
A cozy living room is complete with the required roaring fireplace.
For those more inclined to hot baths and a book in bed, the bedrooms also include a little fire and a beautiful view.
But wait, there’s more! This cottage property actually comes with two houses.
The second, albeit smaller, house is an original structure from the 1850's. According to the property listing, this is one of the original 75 structures from the townsite of Fredericksburg. It even has a front porch worthy of a 19th-century Texan.
Not to be outdone, the historic cottage has been fitted out for guests or extended family in seamless luxury that mirrors the main house.
The log-cabin walls give the four-room cottage an historic feel complete with a fireplace.
What log cabin would be complete without a garden tub and a killer view upstairs?
The whole compound centers around a lush, private courtyard with plenty of arbors.
A red barn completes this classic Texas ensemble.
That’s a lot of real estate on a half acre of land. For a cool $3.3 million, it’s all yours. You can find out more about this stunning property at Sotheby’s.
