An Incredible Victorian Mansion
The Baker Home — a great Victorian mansion with a unique interior and incredible amenities — located near Downtown Weatherford was re-listed last week for $674,900.
The house was started in 1898 for J.D. Baker, who was one of the city’s most prominent citizens as the president of Baker-Poston Company, the Famous Shoe Company and the First National Bank. The house was completed in 1904, posthumously.
The 6,840-square-foot mansion has five bedrooms and three bathrooms, and each room is unique in its own way.
Throughout, the two-story mansion features elaborate parquet floors, fruitwood wainscoting in the foyer, a wooden grand staircase, and all of the original chandeliers.
A Queen Anne-Style Home Fit For Royalty
The Hood Home — a Queen Anne mansion with a beautiful interior and exterior — is listed for $525,000.
The home, which sits at 814 South Waco Street, began as a one-story home in the late 1800s but was purchased in 1909 by the prominent lawyer, R.B. Hood, who added the second story shortly after.
Extensive restoration of the home began in 1982 with front and rear staircases, beautiful carved moldings, ornate oak mantel, and a unique mirrored hallway.
The property’s original windmill is still in use, providing water for landscaping irrigation.
The 3,854-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The Most Precious Early 1900s Farmhouse
The Ivy Home — a charming two-story farmhouse — has been listed for $389,900.
The home was built on land that was owned by prominent resident W.T. Ivy, who invested in land and business development. He sold the property in 1939 to Alan L. McCrary, who were pioneers of the county.
It was purchased in 2010 and was fully renovated by the current owners, which included an addition of a second-story master suite and a beautiful wrap-around porch.
The 3,130-square-foot home on 513 West Lee Avenue is spacious with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, in addition to the master suite.
Throughout, the home features beautiful wood flooring, white baseboards and molding, sleek tiling and marble countertops.
