259 North Main Street, La Grange, TX
The historic Kruschel House built in 1908 is just a half block from the courthouse square. This grand old home features long leaf pine floors, large airy rooms with tall ceilings, intricate hand-carved fretwork, transom windows, pocket doors, and a gorgeous oak staircase. Other original features still in place include pass-through windows for accessing the 1st & 2nd floor wrap-around porches, walk-in cedar closet, and a cistern with hand pump conveniently located on the kitchen porch. The library has a rolling library ladder that spans the room to reach books on the top shelves. There’s also an elevator and a basement. The owner lovingly restored this home over many years including re-wiring and re-plumbing. It sits on two thirds of an acre enclosed by an antique wrought-iron fence and has huge old trees in the side yard. Awesome garage/workshop has roll up doors on both sides, room for six cars, a full bath, and walk up storage on the upper floor. This is the perfect home and perfect location for a bed-and-breakfast with plenty of off-street parking. And an easy stroll to shopping, antiquing, dining, and live music on the square.
