Hold my green beer. For this week’s Suburb Sunday, we’re toasting you a happy St. Patrick’s Day with homes in the Erath County town of Dublin, known as the official Irish Capital of Texas. It’s also the former home of the last Dr. Pepper bottling plant that used real Imperial cane sugar, a variety of Dr. Pepper that earned nearly bootleg status. Dublin is a town full of history and character, and these three home are no exception. This week’s Suburb Sunday is an especially eclectic one with a Folk Victorian, a 1930s Tudor, and a 1960s Spanish Ranch house sitting on an amazing 700+ acres.

Here’s a captivating two-story folk Victorian style home built in 1898 with fresh landscaping, garden, new paint, new windows, and a storybook white picket fence. The elaborate spindlework on the porch overhang adds an ornate embellishment to this understated Victorian style. It sits on a corner lot of nearly a half-acre and has two living rooms, five bedrooms, and a full bath upstairs and downstairs.

203 Links Court is very relaxing

The Spanish Ranch home at 203 Links Court in Aledo, TX

There is nothing relaxing or refreshing about playing outdoor sports this time of year.  Just walking from building to vehicle I would imagine most of us lose a few pounds.  Hitting the links (that’s hipster lingo for “golf”) in summer months can be quite brutal.

However, there is one place where the links can be the perfect place during these temperate months.
