The home at 1072 Jameson Rd. in Van Alstyne was built in 1851 as the original homestead in what was referred to as Jameson. Jameson consisted of the original homestead, an additional home and a schoolhouse.
An addition to the two-story farmhouse was added in 1989. This addition included handcarved oak paneling in the foyer, longleaf pine flooring and a unique, handcarved, two-story ornate staircase.
The addition consisted of four rooms, all with the original longleaf pine flooring, handmade 10-inch baseboards, door moldings, solid oak doors with antique brass fixtures and original oak mantel with brick fireplace. The original front door opens onto the foyer by an antique brass candelabra.
The original portion of the home that was built before the add-on has been updated with a modern design. This includes the addition of tongue-and-groove, four-inch oak hardwood, custom-ordered, five-inch baseboards, ample recessed lighting and six sets of French patio doors.
The home features a custom kitchen with custom-built, shaker-style inset wood cabinets and imported marble, professional grade kitchen aide appliances, special order plumbing and lighting fixtures as well as recessed lighting. This is complemented by the original brick fireplace and mantle, as well as a second original staircase that leads to the second level of the 1851 original home.
A large den is attached to the open kitchen and leads to a large separate pantry and first-floor full bath. The bath includes custom-ordered gray subway tile, new toilet, tub and pedestal vanity.
The second story includes the original 10-inch, wide-plank hardwood and shiplap walls with dated signatures written to document family gatherings from construction to date.
In 2007, a rear addition was added that currently includes the large master bedroom and bathroom. The master suite offers vaulted ceilings, four sets of French doors, 4-inch oak hardwood flooring, custom baseboard and a loft. The master bathroom features special-order marble flooring and walls, a clawfoot tub with a large window, 60-inch vanity with marble top, a dual shower with rain showerheads. It is all finished out with custom lighting.
This fully renovated 3,360-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The property is located on a 12-acre lot. The acreage features a well house, dated to 1872, adjacent to the home that contains a working and usable well.
This home is currently listed by Sheila Fejeran with Exp Realty for $570,000.
