Description

605 W Main St. Decatur, Texas

Lovingly restored home built in 1895, which was the same year the Decatur Courthouse was built. Much of the house is original including the gorgeous hardwood floors, solid wood doors, "wavy" glass windows with beveled glass, transom windows over doors and original wrought iron fences and gates. The house was part of a larger property with a carriage house with circler drive and pond in the center for watering horses. The carriage was changed to a garage while the potting shed remained in place. Lots of history revolves around this great house. Now the house sits within easy walking distance form Decatur's historic square filled with restaurants and quaint shops.

The house is very well insulated with 18 inch walls. Huge rooms with 11 ft ceilings, plaster walls and original crown molding. 3 fireplaces were originally coal burning. Old iron fence surrounds the shaded mature yard with gravel and rock lined pathways. Central heating and air were added 4 years ago along with new gas and water lines, new cabinets and appliances, large tankless water heater, new facia and oversized gutters, 4 year old roof and new outside paint last year.
