Tour the Incredible Texas Hill Country Victorian Being Restored to its Former Glory
The Seaquist House
Wrap-around porches were added to the asymmetrical sandstone and limestone mansion by later owners.
The home’s three-story water tower features a private shower room.
Seaquist House is reportedly one of the best examples of Italianate architecture in the region.
The rock work was hand carved by Rev. Thomas A. Broad, a master stonemason and Methodist Episcopal minister. Broad carved images of the home’s second owner, M.E. Reynolds, as well as his wife Jenny and their daughter Benellen on the southside chimney.
The pillars, even though they were a later addition to the mansion, feel right at home on its grand façade.
Stained glass windows add color and light to the staircase.
Stained Glass Details
Stained glass windows, believed to have come from New York City, can be found throughout the property.
The home’s third-floor ballroom reportedly hosted many proms and weddings in the 40s and 50s.
