It is that time of year again! The Fall Antiques show!

It’s that time of the year again! The end of summer brings some relief from the Central Texas heat with some cooler temperatures and even a few showers.  It also brings the Fall Antique show.  For those of you who have not attended one, it is overwhelmingly big.  It basically stretches from SH 71 in LaGrange up through Warrenton and Round Top to SH 290.

To help those of you who have never experienced it here are some links to show how big it is.  Also going to feature some shopping stops but there is so much there is no way to feature it all which you will see when you watch the Fly Over video.  So here is a list of some YouTube videos to help you get an idea of what happens here for two weeks in the fall, and then again two weeks in the spring!

Here is a video on how to shop and what to expect when you get here!

And some videos so you can see some of the many shops and areas up and down the road you can stop at!  Keep in mind you can’t see this all in one day, or even two or three.  That is one of the reasons we all go back year after year, it is never the same and there are always amazing finds to see and buy!

One of the traditions that have come out of this antique extravaganza is the Gypsy Prom held at Zapp Hall the last Thursday of the show.  From what I understand this started when the ladies at the Junk Gypsy decided that there were just so many wonderful old prom dresses needing a new life.  The original theme was to play dress up in an old prom dress and to Texify it.  Over the years it has become quite an event.  I have my “prom” dress ready to go for this year’s prom date of October 4th. Check it out!

 

I live in Fayetteville TX which is about ten minutes from all of this and I am a Career Realtor.  I help Buyers and Sellers with rural residential, farm and ranch, historic and vintage homes, and even help with properties that are live on with business space up front developed or undeveloped.  If you are looking for a Realtor to help you with property in Warrenton, Round Top, Fayetteville, La Grange, , Fayette County, or surrounding counties, please give me a call Five One Two Seven Four Three Zero Five One Six or Contact Me.  I would love to help you!Deb

Happy Antiquing!

Front porches of Fayetteville TX

I am blessed to live in Fayetteville TX, a small city – yes I said city – of approximately 258 voting residents.  Fayetteville is filled with some amazing vintage and historic homes and we own one of them!  Yesterday when I was driving to the post office ( three blocks away! ) I stopped and took some quick photos of some of the beautiful front porches of Fayetteville.  People love to spend time on their porches and they love to decorate them for holidays too.  We are in between 4th of July and Labor Day so there is still a bit of a patriotic theme about town, but you will always find flags flying no matter what time of year.  Fayettevillians proudly fly the American and Texas flags.

Fayetteville is a popular spot for people looking to retire, there is a strong second home market, and there are investment opportunities.  Being a Fayettevillian and a Realtor I would love to help both Buyers and Sellers meet their Real Estate Goals.   Please contact me if you would like more information on my services.

Pictures of 2934 FM 955 | The Dairy House | Fayetteville Texas

Looking for a great opportunity?  Here is a great little rural property on approximately 7 acres with a darling turn of the century farmhouse.  The home needs TLC but its bones are good, I would think that Chip and Joanna Gaines would consider it a true “fixer upper” with all of its period charm and lots of shiplap.  In its history it has been a family home,  a Bed and Breakfast, and a rental.  The current floor plan on the main floor has a bedroom ( with closests which is rare for a home of this age, a sitting run, a big bathroom, two living areas and a kitchen.  The second story is a  one-room apartment with half bath and a fun sitz tub with private access off the back porch.  Ever want an outdoor shower?  Well, this home has one!  The front porch is lovely but with all the back porch if it were me, I would expand the kitchen and the front room out that way.   Plenty of porch in the back with beautiful country views.   At one time there was a working dairy on the property and the dairy still stands but is not operational.  There is also a large outbuilding with concrete floor.   There is plenty of room for gardens and small animal husbandry.  The back pasture lends itself to a few cows or horses and the seasonal creek could possibly be reworked to support a pond.   There is a new survey in the works.  It is on a private well and septic system. This property is being offered for $195,000.00 and is being sold in AS IS CONDITION.  Call me for your private showing Deb/512-743-0516

Newest listing in La Grange | Farmhouse on 4 + acres

I have driven by this home  at 5136 FM 609 in La Grange Texas for a number of years, and I have always loved how the massive grandfather oak seems to hug this lovely older farmhouse.  Nestled up on a rise it has some nice views.  The home needs some updating but what a fun project it would be.  There is a detached garage, and outbuildings.  Could be a great little gentleman’s farm where you could grow some fresh veggies and raise a few chickens for farm fresh eggs.   Far enough out in the country to live town behind and close enough to go north to 71 or south to I 10 to get anywhere in the state.  If you would like to see this property please give me a call!  I am a Buyer’s Agent, I live in Fayette County, and I would like to help you find the right property be it this or another!  Deb  512-743-0516

Coming Soon – Professional Horse Facility – La Grange Texas

Coming soon just miles outside of La Grange Texas, a professional cutting horse facility that is the home of Hickorys Peppy and PS Tell Grandma.  Along with acreage and a stocked private lake this horse facility has a main home approx 3500 sq. ft. that overlooks the pastures, pond and second barn,  there is a trainers home, and homes for ranch hands as well.  Currently these other residences are being leased out.  There is a great mix of native woods and improved pastures.  The two barns total 30 stalls and most of them have attached runs.  The barn by the main house has a breeding set up with dummy for collection.  There is a professional round pen with tall walls, great footing, and it is under roof with lights for training am/pm and in inclement weather.   This property will be priced in the mid 900’s.  If you are looking for a professional horse facility in Central Texas consider this investment.  It needs a little spit and polish but I don’t think you can buy or build facilities like this in Texas now  for under 1.5M!  If you would like more information please contact me directly Deb Dahlberg Rowland 512-743-0516.
