Property description

This 100 year old classic Greek-revival Mansion is NOT a B&B, but a rare opportunity to enjoy a little Texas history and charm.

Our fully furnished 5,000 square foot mansion has 5 bedrooms & 3 1/2 bathrooms. Four of the rooms are located upstairs and the fifth room is downstairs. Three of our bedrooms offer private access to adjacent bathrooms and all of our suites have a flat screen TV, sitting area, Wi-Fi and 12 foot ceilings with a historical feel unlike any of the other modern venues. The house is covered in its original hardwood floors.

In the downstairs of the home, which we refer to as our 'museum' section has several 100 year old antiques, a chandelier and even a piano for our musically talented guests and their entertainment. Our family room has leather furniture with a 'oil mans' historical motif look that sets directly off the 500 square foot covered patio overlooking the sparkling POOL and FIRE PIT.

Other amenities include a fully stocked kitchen, dinning room, living room, two sets of washer/dryer (upstairs & downstairs) and an over-sized private yard. Our kitchen has ample flatware and cooking utensils for 20 people and a second refrigerator for those extra beverages. If you are preparing to cook a holiday dinner or host a large group, there is a double oven and formal dining room that comfortably seats 12 people.

This beautiful home sits on an acre of meticulously manicured lawn, which is canopied by 100 year old oak trees.

So...if it's your afternoon tea party, family reunion, wedding or your weekend long corporate event for large groups of people (20-250) the Gonzales Venue is your solution!

We are here to create 'FOREVER MEMORIES' for you, your family and friends!

For your wedding party, the home can be easily divided into a separate bridal and grooms quarters; for the bride we have a luxurious bridal room with a wedding gown fitting stage as well as a full length mirror. This house has Antique furnishings that the mothers and grandmothers will absolutely love! Also, located on the second floor is a bridal gown stage/viewing area.

Downstairs the groom and his entourage can enjoy relaxing and reminiscing about good times in the comfortable living room with leather furniture and an oil industry motif. A poker table as well as an adjacent swimming pool, hot tub and BBQ pit is all they will need while preparation for the days festivities.

HERE'S A LITTLE HISTORY OF OUR HOME:

This beautiful Mansion was built and designed in 1910 by Gonzales entrepreneur, O.B. Robertson. He was an attorney before taking up banking as well as involved in farming and lumber. Robertson's most known endeavor was building a brick company on the banks of the Guadalupe River in Gonzales, first called the Sunset Brick Company, later called 'Gonzales Brick'. You will find most of the building on Gonzales Square of this brick.

This breathtaking jewel is located on a beautifully manicured acre of natural beauty on the edge of the official Texas historical museum district. The elegant entrance opens onto one of the most historic residential avenues in the state of Texas – the avenue of ancient oaks where Sam Houston, his troops, and the population of Gonzales heroically marched to Texas victory and independence in 1836.

Gonzales, the home of “Come and Take It” the battle cry where the first shot of the Texas revolutionary war happened, is an irresistible, carefully planned canvas of historic homes, churches and museums, of public parklands and playgrounds, just ten minutes south of interstate 10 on an inviting stretch of hwy 183 as it winds its way to the Texas coast.

A short one-hour drive time to Austin and San Antonio and a little more to Houston and the gulf coast, Gonzales is among the most desirable locations in the state.

In the heart of the eagle ford shale oil and gas activity, economic indicators place Gonzales as one of the wealthiest rural counties in the nation within the next five years. With its charming 19th century storefronts, five Texas history museums, and avenue upon avenue of elegant historic homes, the quality of life opportunity and economic potential of life in Gonzales today is unparalleled.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I, Chris Kappmeyer grew up in Gonzales, TX and bought this home in 2013 to help provide long term housing for the recent oil and gas boom as well as provide a much needed venue in Gonzales, Texas. We love visiting Gonzales as often as we can. It is a second home to us!

Why the Owner Chose Gonzales, TX, USA:
Luxury home in a Quiet neighborhood. Large outdoor Patio with 100 year old oak trees that provide a lot of shade and a fabulous Pool to cool off in the hot summer Texas sun.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The breathtaking surroundings, natural beauty and 100 year old oak trees as you pull up to this historical home says it all! The spacious steps leading up to the covered porch and the large white historical columns that surround the house absolutely take your breath away. One of our favorite places to spend during the hot summer Texas heat is on our private covered and fully shaded patio as well as swimming in the pool, enjoying steaks on the BBQ and playing sports with the family in the large backyard. This home is truly a 'memory maker' for all!
