This lovely home offers the opportunity to own a unique piece of Texas history. The beautiful and spacious plantation home was built by Dr. John W. Lockhart in 1850 and was originally part of a 1,000 acre cotton and corn plantation. The historic home features high ceilings and wood floors of native cedar, pine, ash, and black walnut. One unusual feature is the use of local black walnut in the trim work, window sills, and cornices. The very livable home was painstakingly remodeled and expanded in 1969. The home now includes the original living and dining rooms, a modern kitchen, and a large master suite with a spacious master bath with two separate sinks and a large walk-in closet. Another original bedroom off of the front hall was a guest bedroom that was reported to have been used by Sam Houston on visits to the area. The huge upstairs bedroom suite has a large adjoining bathroom. Light to the upstairs bedroom is provided by a unique fan shaped window in the dormer. As part of the remodeling in 1969, the owners added a large living area for the family with a wood burning fireplace. This room now has a billiard table and overlooks the beautifully landscaped grounds and swimming pool. Included in the property is a charming guesthouse that was remodeled by the current owners with wood walls and floors. The guesthouse is situated in a beautiful natural setting in a grove of live oak trees. In addition to making a unique and wonderful private home, this property would be ideal for a bed and breakfast, an Airbnb, or an antique shop. Located within one mile of historic Chappell Hill with shops, restaurants, and historic sites, approximately one hour driving time on Highway 290 from Loop 610 in Houston.
