Property description

We lovingly renovated our 105-year-old house a few years ago, and last year we opened the doors to guests. From the light-filled rooms to the landscaped gardens, you will find many places here to retreat or come together, to forget about the time and make the most of time. We are writers, photographers, musicians, gardeners and readers, and from our house you can ride at least 50 miles without crossing a highway, enjoy our collection of amazing photographs, play the piano, sit outside and watch the birds and butterflies, or pick a book from our shelves and be transported.
When you get hungry, whip up something in our fully-equipped kitchen or visit one of Fredericksburg's awesome restaurants (we are happy to provide recommendations). Enjoy your morning coffee or tea, or even dinner, in our very private backyard.
While you're here, you can be as busy or as quiet as you wish. There are so many options!
Welcome to The Old White House!

Fredericksburg has become a hot destination for many reasons! This quaint and picturesque German town has been loved throughout the years because of its lovely setting in the rolling hills of Texas, but today people come by the droves to visit the up-and-coming wineries. A multitude of tour companies will pick you up at our door and drive you to a fine selection of wineries, where you can sample to your heart's content. Cyclists love Fredericksburg because of the multitude of quiet and scenic country roads. Nearby Enchanted Rock State Natural Area offers lovely day hikes in an unusual setting.

For such a small town, Fredericksburg hosts an amazing number of fantastic restaurants and live music venues. And, of course, there is the Main Street shopping, from the old-fashioned five-and-dime to antique stores to shops offering hip modern decor. A day could easily be spent just visiting the art galleries.

For those interested in history, the world-class National Museum of the Pacific War is reason enough to visit Fredericksburg.

Our little town has the best weather in Texas, and even when the days are hot, the evenings are usually cool and dry. Spring is particularly special, when the wildflowers bloom profusely.

We love Fredericksburg, and we hope you will, too!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg, TX, USA:
The Old White House is a place with character, with high ceilings, wood floors and big windows. It has always felt like a happy place, full of light.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is located on a huge corner lot, and a few years ago we carried out a renovation project, complete with extensive landscaping utilizing native Hill Country plants and rocks. We discovered an old underground cistern outside the kitchen (no treasure inside), and a fantastic tin ceiling in the dining room that had been covered by a lower, newer ceiling. You'll see the original ceiling when you stay here.
