Property Description

STEP BACK IN TIME to one of the most Well-preserved Historical business districts in Texas. Located on HIGH ST, in Comfort, sits this quintessential homestead, consisting of circa 1888 4-Bedroom Residence, circa 1868 initial residence Pioneer Home and circa 1830's Kentucky 2-Story Log Home. This is the only PRIVATE RESIDENCE available in the 700 Blk of High St. The initial Pioneer Home and the 4-Bedroom residence were built for Peter & Mary Ingenhuett. The Ingenhuett's were a prominent family in the area who built several businesses. The main, 2772 sqft residence boasts 4-bedrooms, large wood burning fireplace, large inviting eat-in kitchen with an abundance of storage, formal dining room and cozy great room. The original bead board walls and ceilings remain throughout the home. The stairway in the central hall, giving access to the upstairs bedrooms and bath, was moved from the Ingenhuett-Faust Hotel. The Pioneer House maintains some of the original exposed "fachwerk"; an architectural technique, brought by German Immigrants. The outside stairs to children's sleeping loft still remains. This home later served as a wash house with inside hearth. The 792 sqft, 2-story Log Home was disassembled in Kentucky then transported and reassembled in this location in 1990. With wood burning fireplace and front porch rocker a storyteller could conjure up visions of a pioneer's life like that of Jim Bowie's. The dwellings surround beautiful, shaded .38AC lot. At the rear of the property and end of the granite drive is a two-car carport with large workshop and storage room w/ loft. This barn was constructed in 1990's by present owner who replicated the original barn in this location, that was believed to be the Stagecoach barn. The present owner has preserved the historic ambiance of this unique property as well as accurately restored architectural features. Endless opportunities await new owner whether considering Residential, Commercial or a combination of the two.
