Sitting on more than five acres at the corner of South Lamar Street and Norton Street, the Tate Home near Weatherford’s downtown is still up for sale.
The more than 6,600-square-foot house on 808 South Lamar Street contains 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a grand ballroom, and two detached guest suites. Yes, all of that with a price tag of $995,000. It was first listed in 2018 for $1.195 million.
The Queen Anne Victorian-style mansion was built in 1897 by William Tate, a well-known merchant in the small town, who sold buggies, hardware and saddles. The home has since been beautifully restored containing many of the intricate details it was constructed within the late 19th Century.
The current owners, who have maintained the property for more than 27 years, operated the mansion as a bed and breakfast for more than 15 of those years.
Colored as a Victorian Painted Lady with more than 12 vibrant colors on the exterior, a wrap-around gingerbread front porch, and a two-story tower can also be seen from the curb.
The two garden home-sized guest suites come with the same beautiful characteristics of the main house, additionally featuring hot tubs and full-sized bathrooms.
The grand ballroom boasts elaborate interior woodwork, a domed ceiling, and Tudor-style wainscoting. Each bedroom comes with unique patterned wallpaper.
The kitchen — with a large laundry room to match it — feels like a step in the mid-1900s rather than the Victorian Era, but is still beautiful with its checkered black and white flooring and shiny white tiled backsplash surrounding the entire room.
Throughout the large mansion, guests will discover magnificent interior woodwork, detailed doorway fretwork with transoms, five-carved fireplace mantels, 10-foot-tall sliding pocket doors, and an antique gas light fixture.
The property additionally includes a swimming pool and original windmill well house.
