Queen Ann Victorian in Brenham Hits a Sweet Spot

brenhamSituated at one of the highest points in Washington County, Texas, this Queen Ann Victorian in Brenham clearly still has some stories to tell.

Built in 1901, the grand lady was moved to its current site — the former home of the Live Oak Female Seminary established in 1853 — much later and restored to its Victorian glory. Sitting on nearly 47 acres of land along the historic La Bahia Trail, 9105 Mayfair Lane sits near Independence and Brenham, and boasts rolling views clear to Lake Somerville and College Station.

And while the grounds covered in live oaks, a pond, gardens, patio, pool, and more are gorgeous, the five-bedroom, four full-bath, and two half-bath main home still boasts all of its period-perfect detailing, from the wood floors, transoms, high ceilings and fluted and rosette trim work to its wraparound porches on both stories.

But it’s not just the guest house — there is a log cabin and cabana pool house for additional guest space, making this home — an easy drive to Houston, Austin, and Dallas — a perfect place for family to gather.

And there is plenty of entertainment off the land as well — including plenty of wineries, breweries, shopping, dining, and of course Blue Bell Ice Cream.
