If you are looking for the perfect place to spend some time in the country, this may be it. This unique
home was built in 1911 in Rochelle, Texas and has been lovingly known as "Granny Sellman's"
house. After the current owner purchased the house, it was moved to its present location. The
"Prairie style" home is set in a grove of beautiful liveoak trees. and is surrounded by 50
acres of very productive grassland. It is decorated very colorfully with red and navy blue being the
dominant colors. The natural wood plank floors, open kitchen cabinets, original windows and doors
carry on the original character of the house. It has been modernized somewhat to provide some of
the comforts that we enjoy, such as window air-conditioning units, cooking island with a glass
cooktop, and a hot tub. A cast iron wood burning heater is located in the kitchen and provides heat
for the entire house, but propane gas is available when a little more heat is needed. A large
wrap-around porch is the dominant feature that you see when driving up to the house. From the
porch you enter the living room that is well lighted through the many windows. There are two
bedrooms. The spacious bathroom with skylight over the tub/shower has a large armoire for
storage. It also has a utility/laundry room. A large screened porch is along the entire back of
the house and has 2x6 wood floors and a large hot tub that has room for 5 or 6 people.
The metal roof was installed about a year ago and there is a covered parking area attached to
the back porch and house. Household water is supplied from the rural water system that serves
the area. The fences are in fair to good condition.
The land is rolling grassland with a high point that offers a view for miles. There are two dirt
tanks (ponds) and watering troughs for the livestock and wildlife. It appears that bird hunting would
be very good.
As a permanent residence or an occasional retreat, this place will work. Let us give you a
first-hand tour of this very unique place.
