About 1508 Church Street, Bastrop, Texas

The Crown Jewel of Bastrop County! ~ This historic Queen Victorian treasure has been meticulously restored and is waiting for her new owners to continue the tradition of preserving the history of this special estate. Captain and Mrs. B. D. Orgain built and occupied this elegant residence in 1888 and it was the center for social and cultural gatherings in Bastrop. The home remained in the Orgain family until 1947. It was recognized in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 and the Texas Historical Commission in 1981. The finest materials were sourced when the home was built and the interior of the home includes pine, walnut, mahogany, and cherry. The main home is 6251sf per floor plan. The exterior siding and foundation were made with cypress. The architectural features include double galleried wrap-around porches, five gables, and fish-scale shingling. Seven fireplaces and eight mantles, all with different styles and designs, are in the major rooms. Five of the fireplaces are operable with gas logs. Long-leaf pine floors sourced from East Texas are present throughout the home. The entrance has solid double front doors which have beautiful stained glass on the upper portion and also in the transom. The wide foyer is impressive and you are immediately greeted with an intricate filigree and spindle work arch, a gorgeous crystal chandelier, and an elegant staircase that is reminiscent of antebellum styling. Impressive stained glass panels are present on the first and second floors. 2 sets of sliding wooden pocket doors flank the center hall and a third set is present between the living and formal dining rooms. The original music room has been converted to an office/library and the parlor now serves as the living room. The spacious dining room is ideal for large family gatherings or entertaining. The corner molding with capitals (the same design as seen in the Texas State Capitol Building) are at each corner junction of the plaster walls. The ceilings downstairs are 12’ and upstairs are 11’ high. The kitchen has been modernized with granite counters, Viking appliances, an abundance of cabinets, and a center island with a gas cook-top. The breakfast area accommodates a large farm table and is the perfect gathering place. It features a double-sided fireplace which also opens to the family room. An antique English bar and the stained glass back door are the focal points of this room. The home includes five bedrooms, one on the main level and four on the second level. There are 5.5 baths. The master suite includes a spacious sitting room. A second staircase is present and leads to the efficient utility area off the kitchen. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, sprinkled with crape myrtles and towering pecan trees provide shade and seasonal pecans! Enjoy the sparkling swimming pool, spa, and outdoor kitchen with access from an inviting screened porch. There are several seating areas that have been created throughout the grounds to enjoy the beauty and privacy of the yard. Two detached cottages (1494sf per floor plan) provide additional space for multi-generational families, guests or may be used for rental income. Both have living areas, kitchens and are configured with one-bedroom, one-bath, and two bedrooms, two baths respectively. There is also a workshop and private yard and entrance for one of the cottages. The eclectic detached garage/carport can house up to four vehicles and may also be cleared and used for entertaining. The iron fencing and impressive decorative gates were manufactured in Pennsylvania over 100 years ago. A stroll from downtown!
