ABOUT

Welcome to Charming Bastrop

Welcome to 1702 Pecan Street, a truly enchanting historic home in the heart of Bastrop, TX, known affectionately as The Page House. This elegant red-brick Prairie-style residence holds a rich history as it was built in 1920 by then Senator Paul DeWitt Page. Page played a pivotal role in securing the development of the renowned Bastrop State Park and Camp Swift. The distinguished Page House stands tall with its two stories adorned by graceful low gables, a tiled roof, and wide overhanging eaves supported by rafters. One of the home’s most charming features is its deep wraparound porch made of parquet brick, inviting residents and visitors alike to savor the outdoors in style. Additionally, the patio ceilings are painted in haint blue, a pale shade of blue green traditionally used in southern homes to ward of spirits and insects alike. The color adds a wistful touch to the beautiful rustic brick exterior that encompasses the home.

 

Plentiful Space to Host Family and Friends

The property includes a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom main house, plus a detached two-car garage, air-conditioned workshop, and separate office. Additionally, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom carriage house with its own living area, kitchen, and laundry provides a welcoming haven for visiting friends and family. Inside the main home, there’s no shortage of jaw dropping attributes – beautiful pine floors glisten throughout, cherry trim work and plantation shutters adorn the main level, while a towering wall of ornamental stained-glass welcome all on the landing, and a hand hammered copper vent hood anchors the kitchen. A piece of history resides in the basement, where an original coal-burning stove furnace remains and sits restored as a centerpiece to the now wine room. During colder months, Senator Page hired a man to sleep in the basement, diligently stoking the coal furnace throughout the night to warm the home. Today, the captivating interior boasts a winding wood staircase leading to a temperature-controlled wine cellar and a delightful tasting room. The preserved coal-burning furnace adds a touch of nostalgia and ambiance, allowing occupants to immerse themselves in the past while enjoying wine and cocktails of days gone by.

 

Remarkable Original Details and Modern Updates Throughout

Nestled on a .63-acre corner lot in the historic district, the property presents immense curb appeal paying homage to its address and is adorned with majestic pecan trees that provide a tranquil and shaded retreat at every turn. Mature crepe myrtles hug the home surrounding it in floral abundance in summer, while towering magnolia trees declare their beauty in spring to decorate the grounds. The perimeter is thoughtfully enclosed by a matching brick wall, fence and gated driveway ensuring both privacy and security. In addition to its historical significance and natural beauty, the residence offers the best of both worlds in terms of location. Situated .7 mile from Bastrop’s quaint Main Street, residents have easy access to the vibrant downtown scene, brimming with shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions. A short walk more and you’ll find the Colorado River offering recreation and beauty to all who find her. Moreover, the home’s proximity to downtown Austin, +/- 35 miles away, opens a world of possibilities, granting a seamless connection to the bustling capital city’s events, amenities, entertainment options and international airport. This home is a treat to view and a prize to own. 48-Hour Advance Showing Notice.
