If you’ve driven to Austin or San Antonio even once, chances are you’ve at least passed the road signs mentioning Georgetown.
Some day, you really should stop and visit the idyllic town with a beautiful town square and plenty of unique shopping, dining, and other attractions. The town also boasts plenty of other things to keep you occupied, including golf courses, spas, and plenty of events.
Or, and hear us out, you could put down a mere $410,000 on this 1895 cutie and be about a half-hour from Austin and University of Texas football games, and an hour and a half from San Antonio, making it the perfect second home if you want a pad that is close to some fun action in the immediate vicinity, but also close to some reasonable day trips.
Located in Old Town Georgetown, this home screams unique and special from the curb, with its rounded bay with that semi-conical roof, the incredible shingles, and the raindrop patterned fascia boards. Three porches provide plenty of opportunities to kick back and relax, and the whole half-acre lot has some incredible shade, which is important in Texas.
The current owners also took pains to retain a lot of what makes this home historic on the inside, too, from the wood floors to the claw foot tub to the bay windows. But they also made updates that fit in seamlessly to combine the old charm with the new needs of a modern owner.
