If you’re looking for the comforts of home with the quietness of the country, this is it. A few miles north of Chappell Hill and close to Washington on the Brazos State Park, This home Is easily accessible to College Station (30 min), Navasota, Brenham and Round Top.

Friends and families gather here to watch sunrises, sunsets, enjoy morning coffee, and barbeque from big back porch. I am second owner of this 1899 home that is totally updated with today’s amenities.

The space
This home is an important part of history in Washington County. German emigrants settled here in the 1850’s. The 2nd generation of Kruegers built this home in 1899. 11 children were born here, and Bennie Krueger, the only son, was a Texas Ranger and country gentleman. Relatives toured my home in 2018 and shared their memories.

Guest access
There is plenty of on-site parking. Live oaks line the drive and it is easy to unload your car near back porch and enter from back. All access doors,interior and exterior, are 36 inches.

Other things to note
The back porch is a guest “hang out” for barbecues and visiting.

I bought this home years ago when it was in need of total restoration. I was seduced by its history, architectural detail and unobstructed views of rolling hills. This is a “go-to” place to leave the “hustle and bustle” of the city behind. The kitchen is designed for chefs. It has a semi-pro 6 burner gas stovetop and oven, a smaller Wolf electric oven, a wet bar, and a plethora of cooking accessories. A farmhouse table seats 6. The dining room is spacious and seats 10. A fireplace makes it feel like home. It is a good place to play games and puzzles. While maintaining a sense of history, the house has modern amenities. The upstairs 5th bedroom offers a remarkable view of the land. A table, refrigerator, wet bar, bath, 2 queen beds. place to read and a TV make this a favorite room and it’s view is beautiful.The bath is large. view from exterior and interior stairs is spectacular. Just north of Chappell Hill and 30 minutes from TX A&M Kyle Field, my home is easily accessible to Round Top, Chappell Hill, Navasota, and Brenham. Guests gather on big back porch for barbecues or on side patio for a cup of morning coffee. Situated on 22 unobstructed acres, its views of rolling hills are beautiful. This is a quiet place to relax and enjoy the good life.
