1880 Georgetown landmark asks $930K

Looking for a place to gather the family for the holidays? If you have an extra mil or so lying around, we have the perfect house for you.

Located in Georgetown, the very adorable town about 30 miles north of Austin, the three-story frame home was built in 1880 and extensively remodeled and expanded in 2010. It looks like many of the Victorian touches of the original remain or were reproduced, though, and the home is listed as the John Leavell House in the National Register of Historic Places.

Measuring 6,411 square feet, the house has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, an office, and a spacious open living/dining/kitchen area. Wood floors, a beautiful staircase, period baseboards, and other historic features are found throughout; there’s also an elevator serving all three floors. Sited on .31 acres, it has plenty of yard space for a Kennedy-esque game of touch football after dinner; it also has views of historic downtown Georgetown.
