The beautiful 1883 Folk Victorian farmhouse built by Atreus and Katherine Clay went off the market before we could feature it as a historical shelter, and we were bummed. But it’s back on the market now, and it’s even ready to become a business again if the new buyers wish.
The farmhouse was home to four generations of the Clay family before it went on the market. The first Artreus Clay was a Texas Ranger and built his family home near Independence and Brenham to last.
And the residents of the home have honored that by keeping the home in incredible shape throughout its history. It’s been used as a bed and breakfast and wedding venue called the House of Atreus, and if the new buyer was the entrepreneurial type, it could be again.
Listing agents Savannah Gutierrez and Susan Kiel of Market Realty said it’s a chance to “own a true piece of Texas history.”
