In the small community of Linwood, just a few miles west of Alto, sits a piece of Texas history. Owned by the same family since 1836 and situated on 190 acres that includes a private lake, abundant wildlife and a pine plantation, sits an adorable custom-built country home.
Built in 1992, the 2,156-square-foot home was originally designed and inspired by Texas Colonial-style architecture. The main living area is open and inviting with vaulted ceilings and plenty of natural light. An original wood-burning stove near the kitchen is a pleasant reminder of simpler times, and rustic cabinetry complements the use of natural hardwood throughout the living space.
The one-and-a-half story home has two large bedrooms and two bathrooms just off the living room on the first floor. Large French doors lead into the spacious, carpeted master bedroom. Homeowners can cozy up in the master bathroom’s garden tub Jacuzzi or take a step back in history with a soak in the guest bathroom’s claw-foot tub.
Upstairs features a large combination bedroom and office as well as a 19-foot-by-13-foot storage area with an abundance of built-in shelving.
The home is nestled under towering trees and is surrounded by both manicured landscaping and natural vegetation. The roomy front porch is the perfect location for a set of rocking chairs where you can sit and look out over the lake. If the mosquitoes are biting too much, a screened-in sunroom runs the entire length of the back of the house. A large carport and workshop also are featured on this stunning homestead, which sits off state Highway 21 east.
