Recently the setting for Ben Affleck’s newest film “Hypnotic”, this historic turn-of-the-century, restored central Texas home was built in 1906 by C.S. Belford for E.J. Glasscock-Talbott, daughter of Georgetown’s founder, George W Glasscock. An excellent example of L-Plan architecture, Many of Belford’s homes are preserved in Georgetown’s Belford National Historic District.

The two-story home features original long leaf pine flooring, tall ceilings, original staircase, fireplace, double hung windows, and antique lighting. The master bedroom is finished with original bead board walls. The gorgeous en-suite master bath includes an antique clawfoot tub and separate steam shower with Carrara marble seating. For modern convenience, generous walk-in closets and cabinets have been added. The kitchen has been remodeled with all new appliances.

The wraparound porch overlooks a beautiful cottage garden featuring flowering trees, shrubs, antique roses, perennials, reseeding annuals, and bulbs. The surrounding acreage has been cleared and native trees, wildflowers are thriving and is fenced and gated. Healthy, acre and half-acre ponds are stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish. Both ponds are 15-20 feet deep. A small orchard thrives on the hillside, irrigated by a solar pump with water from the half-acre pond.

A modern, two-story garage with room for two vehicles compliments the older home. The first floor has been nicely finished with cabinets, drawers, counter workspace, stainless steel sink, beverage fridge, and full bathroom. The second floor is a modern apartment with contemporary kitchen and all new appliances. The combined bedroom and living room is large and open.

Located in the hills of eastern Travis County, this historic home has views of the ponds and surrounding hills. The second floor windows have thirty-mile views looking west towards Austin.
This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Texas history sitting on gorgeous acreage.
