Other Austin Properties house description

We relocated this historic train depot from Granger, TX in 2003 and turned it into our home. Ceilings downstairs are over 15' tall, and it's full of bohemian charm. Two bedrooms downstairs and a small sleeping alcove in a loft share the downstairs bathroom (antique cast iron tub, separate WC, washer and dryer). The attic has been finished out as a bedroom with its own half bath. Check out the story that ran recently on Houzz.com: http://tinyurl.com/austin-depot
