Property Description

Offered for your consideration is the 1896 Marcus Lafayette Spencer house, one of the few structures in Alvin that survived the Great Storm of 1900. Walk through the original Eastlake front door, and this fine example of a Gulf Coast Victorian immediately impresses. The reception hall is followed by the center hall which is flanked by the spacious formal living and dining rooms. The master suite is nicely separated from the secondary bedrooms. The bathrooms have been thoughtfully renovated with a nod to the past. The upstairs loft/game room is a particularly special space. Throughout the home you will find 12 foot ceilings, heart pine floors, and abundant natural light. Outside boasts two porches, one of which is screened, and a raised deck perfect for entertaining. In the huge back yard is a charming storage shed and arguably the best kids fort in Texas. Commuter friendly historic home under 300k, 31 miles from downtown Houston.
