Manager info

Year Purchased: 1950

About: This home was built in 1950 by Dr. Walter and Jane Stover. He was a local physician who practiced in Marfa from 1948-1976. Besides being a housewife and dietitian, Jane became an artist. She and a friend were the first students of National Academy artist Frank Gervasi. Their four children (who now live in Alpine, Dallas, Houston, and Round Rock) decided to update their childhood home for their own use and for others to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Large corner lot with privacy fenced back yard. Space for special event hosting with all the kitchen amenities necessary like double ovens, dishwasher and serving space. This home has been enjoyed by our family for the past 63 years and we want others to create special memories here, too!
