Do you remember the Steve Martin movie from the ’90s Father of the Bride? There are a ton of memorable quotes in that movie but because I’m such a house junkie, I love the one where George and Nina Banks are visiting their future son-in-law’s parents in their massive home.  George needs to use the restroom:

The bathroom down here is being remodeled, why don’t you try upstairs, it’s the seventh door on the left.”

“Second?”

“Seventh.”

“Seventh?”

A true assortment of colors that's for sure!
The Queen Anne Victorian home has over 21 different paint colors on the exterior

What does that movie and quote have to do with today’s Tarrant County Tuesday?  Today I want to tell you about a home with 10 bathrooms.  Yes, I said 10.  Can you imagine giving someone directions to bathroom No. 5 or No. 9?

But 808 S. Lamar Street in Weatherford is an extraordinary Queen Anne Victorian-inspired home built in 1897 and has 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms!

For the past 14 years this home has been utilized as a relaxing bed-and-breakfast in the quiet Weatherford community just 25 miles west of Fort Worth.

They don't make 'em like they used to
Notice the intricate detail and workmanship in the carved staircase and wainscotting

I want to know what the original owners of this majestic home did with 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a grand ballroom, a performing stage (my daughter would love that), two separate guest suites, and so much more.

What a great weekend getaway this could be
808 S. Lamar Street also boasts two detached guest suites on the property

A home of over 6,000 square feet is large for 2018, but it must have been seen as a palace in the late 1800s.

The details in this home signify amazing workmanship throughout the home.  In the grand ballroom the barrel-vaulted ceiling is lined with acoustic tiles so that performances sound just right.

What a great place a karaoke

Whether you are interested in a 10-bedroom home for private use or to run as a bed and breakfast, this home is a must-see.  You will not find another home quite like this one.  Just make sure you remember which bathroom is yours.

Relax in the swimming pool that is shaded by many trees that are as old as the home.

This gorgeous Queen Anne Victorian at 808 S. Lamar Street is listed by Rozi Stone of Williams Trew Real Estate.  The home is available for $1.195 million and is ready for the right buyer to continue the magic of this property.
