About This 1906 Early American Prairie Farmhouse In Commerce Texas
Stunning Early American Prairie Farmhouse with a long story to tell. Back in 1906 this home was built by the Knight family of Commerce TX. Fast forward 110 years and the home has been lovingly and painstakingly restored with detailed chronicles of the process. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history and write a new story for you and your family. Property is also a great option for someone looking to purchase a bed and breakfast and or wedding event venue. The property lends itself to many flexible options.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE HOME
I love the local history, great spaces, and the amazing renovation. Almost everyone in Commerce has a story about or connection to this house. TX A&M – Commerce provides sports, music, activities of every type. From day 1, the local business owners, college professor, and local property baron – all living nearby will help you come to love this home even more than you do now. Unique spaces downstairs, each with fireplace mantles, provide opportunities for people to gather, talk, and enjoy each other.
The beautifully updated kitchen has its own special piece of history to enjoy: the double tables with chairs from the courthouse jury box (I love the Sonic ice machine). With 3 expansive porches around the home, your living space joins the outdoors. The east facing and west facing porches give you sunrise in the morning and sunset in the evening. Time your showing to see the sunset from the upstairs office/laundry… Amazing!
The multiyear renovation completed in 2014 left nothing undone. Foundations, porches, appliances, ultra-efficient HVAC, (didn’t they replace the electrical and plumbing?) and spray foam insulation behind every wall, in every ceiling, and every attic space. … Yes there is shiplap behind the drywall, so if you wanted to have a DIY for yourself, you could tackle it. If you are looking for the “after house” from the TX based renovation show based in Waco – It’s all here.
