This property has been designated as a Historic Landmark by the City of Glen Rose, Texas. Situated on a half-acre elevated bluff, 15' above the meandering Paluxy River, this Glen Rose hideaway is just blocks from many of this charming little town's favorite attractions, yet secluded enough to just hunker down, relax and recharge! The house was built in the early 1950's on the site of the Grisham Pool, the first "cement swimming hole" in Glen Rose. The sides of the original pool are still there and now form the sides of the driveway.
This recently-renovated (2013) hideaway features all of the charm of an original 1950's single-story ranch style home, made over in comfortable, casual cottage-style. The home includes all the new must-have technical conveniences including Wifi, HD Smart TV's with satellite TV, Hulu Plus account access plus a Blu-Ray DVD player and finished it off with a nice on-site library of DVD's for all to enjoy.
There's even an 8' picnic-table for your outdoor feasts and comfy chairs in the newly added, bug-free screened-in back porch which enjoys a view of the Paluxy River and tree tops from its lofty perch. If it's family time, there's a special area for board-game challenges! You definitely won't run out of things to do. Or, you can choose to do nothing and return home relaxed, recharged and refreshed.
The kitchen is fully equipped with brand new appliances (2013), flatware and table setting for twelve. A full complement of pots, pans, cooking utensils and more is ready for your use. The two renovated bedrooms feature new mattresses (purchased in November 2013); a King-sized bed in the Master Bedroom and a Queen-sized bed in the guest bedroom. Both bathrooms have also been recently remodeled, keeping a few key elements of the past (see the black and pink master-bath!) while updating all the fixtures. The views from the home are wonderful and relaxing. A recently completed 20' wall of windows looks out on trees, plants and the Paluxy River across the street. A full laundry (washer and dryer, ironing board and iron) is on-site if you want to return home with all clean clothes!
Two blocks west of the home is the historic downtown Glen Rose square anchored by the Courthouse and surrounded with two museums, two art galleries, shopping, dining (including the best pies in the state - really!) and even foods sold farm fresh from local growers.Two blocks east home is the popular Big Rocks Park where, during summer, the Paluxy River is ready for you to enjoy whether you're splashing, fishing or just relaxing. Or, take the concrete footbridge and walk safely across the Paluxy River to historic Heritage Park where homes of the original Glen Rose are on display for all to see and enjoy. On the opposite side of the street from Big Rocks Park is Glen Rose's own Oakdale Park, home of the free Bluegrass Jam music-fest! Come enjoy great Bluegrass music - search online for their schedule of events. If your stay includes the kids, we're centrally located for major local attractions like Fossil Rim, Dinosaur World and Dinosaur State Park. Each are just a few miles away by car. This home can be the perfect base-camp for your relaxing weekend away in the historic town of Glen Rose!
