House Crazy Sarah is crazy about old commercial buildings converted into homes.

This unique building is located in historic town of Jefferson, Texas.

And it is currently for sale for $335,000!

The brick two story structure is merely a surviving portion of a 1869 four story hotel built in Jefferson’s heyday when it was a port of entry into Texas.

The majority of the original structure was destroyed by a fire in the 1870’s and the present building was salvaged from the rubble and then used as a private residence for many years by the decedents of the original owner. Today, the building is still used as a single family townhouse.

Let’s look inside….

It is incredibly elegant with its high ceilings, tall windows, and exquisite chandeliers. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it is lavishly furnished with expensive period antiques.

Despite having 5,600 interior square feet, and being a former hotel, there are only 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and one half bath. There were no listing photos of the bedrooms, but they are probably huge and grand.

Wouldn’t it make an amazing restaurant? Or bed and breakfast? Or VRBO rental? Or store front on the bottom, apartment on the top? Or museum? Or art gallery? Or brew pub?
