Step back in time to the charm of yesteryear with this 19th century Storm survivor! Built in 1886 and a survivor of the devastating Great Storm of 1900, this historic beauty exudes charm and character with many original parts still intact.
Upon entering this piece of history, you'll find a cozy sitting room on the first floor. Guests can enjoy the WiFi, cable/DVD, read a book, or have a game night with the supplied board games. A sleeper sofa pulls out for additional sleeping downstairs.
Just off the living room is the dining room, with table and seating for ten! Perfect for large family gatherings or holidays around the dinner table. Enjoy dinner music with the throwback turntable and provided records for an additional history lesson!
Conveniently located off the dining room is the modern gourmet kitchen. Completely updated with marble countertops, a six burner Viking stove, double Wolf ovens, and plenty of prep space - this is where the chefs of the family will want to hang! Ideal for cooking that Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham.
Looking for a more casual meal? Just off the kitchen is a relaxing porch, complete with barbecue grill and a picnic table for the kids! Large trees, even older than the home, tower over the patio areas, providing shade on a warm summer day.
A half bath is conveniently and centrally located under the stairs in the main hallway.
Up the immaculate stairs - with original banisters - you'll find all four of the bedrooms and two full bathrooms. There are two bedrooms with a full bed each, a large king master bedroom, and a spacious room with 2 twin beds. The twin room and master can be conveniently adjoined with the original, grand pocket doors. One bathroom has a shower only, and the other bathroom has the home's original clawfoot tub/shower combo. Each bedroom has large windows and views of this historic Galveston neighborhood.
This historic home is conveniently located on the Island. Less than a mile away are all the many shops and restaurants on The Strand. A short mile in the other direction you'll find Pleasure Pier and the beach! Hopping on a cruise? You're minutes from the only cruise port in Texas! And if you're looking for that rich Texas history, this 1886 Victorian is surrounded by museums and galleries.
If you're a lover of history, grand architecture, and days gone by, this 1886 Victorian home is an experience you'll remember for years to come.
