Texas charmer for cheap



Sometimes I can’t believe the price of homes in different regions. In some places they are astronomical, and in other places, they seem far below what they should be.

Take for instance this charming 1904 Victorian cottage in Marlin, Texas with over 3500 square feet of living space, currently listed for only $99,900.

Now, 3500 square feet may be small by Texas standards, but that is some pretty impressive square footage for a historic home at that price point!

It is located on over an acre of gorgeous land:

Have a look at the character inside:

This 1904 home has FOUR bedrooms and THREE bathrooms!

The wood floors are stunning!

This place appears as though it has been handled with kid-gloves for the 100-plus years it has been around! Not a nick, not a scratch, nary a wear-and-tear indication that the house is older than my granny!

And my granny would probably feel right at home in the vintage kitchen with original cabinetry…

This bathroom might be my favorite room of all:

You can see the complete listing (with historical narrative) here.

Not only do you get a GREAT house for a BARGAIN price, but look at all the extras it comes with:

Many items are included with the sale:  Upright Piano, original Couch and 2 chairs, bookcase in living room, cabinet in back room, refrigerator, range, microwave, washing machine, dryer, 4 trunks with contents; vintage clothes, etc. and a treasured 1929 Marlin Yearbook.

Vintage clothes? An upright piano??  A 1929 Yearbook???

What an amazing purchase this will be for some lucky history lover!
