Description: Step into history with the Waggoner-Hicks House, a charming residence built in 1890 and marked with the significance of a Texas Historical Marker. Spottswood Lomax, a founder of the noted Matador and Espuela (Spur) ranches of Texas, built a Queen Anne house here in 1890. It was remodeled in the colonial revival style around the turn of the century by the prominent cattleman W. T. “Tom” Waggoner, who deeded it to his son, local banker Guy Leslie Waggoner, in 1904. Three years later, Vernon farmer and oil investor E. P. Hicks purchased the property and it remained in his family until 1967. This distinguished property offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a bonus room on the third floor, providing ample space for modern living while preserving the charm of a bygone era. The main floor boasts formal living and dining rooms, a sitting room, den and an office, creating a perfect blend of elegance and functionality. The updated kitchen is a chef’s delight, and a large utility/laundry room adds convenience for daily tasks. Enjoy the beauty of the outdoors on the wrap-around porch, patio, and gazebo. A large waterfall enhances the picturesque landscaping with mature trees, creating a serene and inviting atmosphere. The property features central heat and air for year-round comfort. Inside, discover the timeless appeal of beautiful hardwood floors, complemented by carpet in two bedrooms and tile in the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room. With a 2-car detached garage and an unfinished basement this home provides plenty of additional storage. Embrace the unique character and rich history of this Waggoner-Hicks House, offered at the listing price of $359,000. Don’t miss the opportunity to own a piece of Texas history with this lovingly preserved residence at 2720 Paradise.
