The Home on Oak Hill

This beautifully refurbished 3/3 +, historic home is situated on nearly 1 ac on Oak Hill in Historic Comfort, TX. In the early days of Comfort most homes were built of stone which makes the Craftsman style, Gaddis-Carrington home even more unique that it was built of solid wood in 1897. Cypress was used extensively throughout the construction. The home boast oak floors, stately door and ceiling moldings, twelve-foot ceilings and a native river rock fireplace. The fireplace is made of Cypress Creek stones gathered locally. The stones are round and smooth as opposed to the native rock used for the rock wall surrounding the property. The free-standing status of the wall comes from the fact there is not any cement used in the wall's construction. Workers painstakingly stacked the rocks level leaving no holes or gaps in the wall. The Gaddis-Carrington Home is the only one in town with a rock wall of this construction.

The small green w/red trim building behind the house was the "milk house". In the early days the milk buckets would be placed in a thick-walled concrete tub and was filled with cool water to keep the milk fresh. The present owner has created a charming decked, climate-controlled gathering space.

The home consists of large spacious rooms and several comfortable sitting seating areas, with a bright and storage-filled, open kitchen. The present owner has added an impression-making office with full-bath that could easily convert to guesthouse. And don't forget to ask about the highly filtered rain catchment system that can switch easily

between rainwater and city water when needed. The lower fenced yard has room for a variety of four legged animals.

This Grand home is sun-filled and makes an elegant blend between the 1890's and the 2020's, all neatly tucked under deep inviting porches! Exclusively Priced @ $2,500,000.
