East Texas Storefront is a Golden Opportunity for a Historical Shelter

historical shelterIt’s not often that we are able to bring you a historical shelter that is a) close enough to be able to attend an open house, and b) is having an open house so you can actually go see it in the flesh.

Today, you’re in luck, because we have an adorable historical storefront that could be commercial property, but is currently staged and used as a home — in the cute little East Texas town of Golden.

Close to Mineola, as a home, it manages to give up both a farmhouse country feel and an industrial loft feel at the same time.

Listing agent Laura Robertson of Keller Williams Realty Allen says the 4,100 square foot historical shelter offers “exposed brick walls, soaring high ceilings, flexible open plan and so much more.”

Currently set up with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths and plenty of entertaining space, the space is full of beautiful touches, too, Robertson said, including a gorgeous artist’s handmade chandelier in the front room, polished concrete flooring downstairs and original hardwoods upstairs.

And a flexible floorplan means the home can literally be whatever you need it to be.

“The ground floor level can be one large open area,” Robertson said. “Currently, the building is used as a residence and the downstairs is divided into two bedrooms with a full bathroom.”

Upstairs there is a large open space with a modern kitchen and granite countertops, a laundry room, a half bath and a private master suite.

“The possibilities are endless here!” she added. “Use your imagination!”

And bonus, you can visit the home (which is listed for $250,000) — which is located at 703 FM 1799 in Golden (or Mineola, depending on who your Google maps believes) — at an open house Saturday, Jan. 20, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  • On Google Maps, you have to enter “Golden”. It defaults to Mineola and it’s not the same location (miles and miles away).
