  • 2,504 SF : 3 BR : 2Bath : Steam Shower: Office and Storage Building

Adobe home sited centrally on large lot with two carports and an extra building for an office with additional storage area attached. This home has high ceilings, large rooms and hardwood floor. Listed as being built in 1942, it feels like an earlier build of the 1920’s as it follows the general layout and thickness of adobe that was characteristic of adobes built in the earlier part of the twentieth century. The cement stone form cladding on the building was probably applied in the late forties or fifties that occurred with several of the adobe homes in the area. Although it is not the classic adobe stucco finish that one expects from the Marfa adobe style, it serves as a great insulator and protector of the adobe bricks.

The house has a large living room with built in cabinet features, high ceilings and hardwood floors and looks out onto the front porch. A separate but open dining area adjoins the living room and it to has the benefit of built in cabinetry and high ceilings and hardwood floors of the original building. Off of the dining room looking out on to the backyard is a large den which is a later addition and looks as though it had been a carport or porch that was enclosed to become an extra room in the house.

Next to the den is also an addition which is now a third bedroom and has a full bath with a steam shower. The bathrooms were updated with extra storage added with new tiling and fixtures. There is also a water filtration system added. In the additional bedroom is a utility closet with washer and dryer and room for more storage.

The kitchen is a galley kitchen and has lots of pantry space and cabinets with a gas range.

Two deep carports flank the east and west side of the house with an additional storage room added to the west carport. The east carport is being used as a covered patio / outdoor dining area. and leads into the backyard where there is a building that houses additional storage as well as an office with windows which can work as a studio space as well. The backyard is large, fenced and has pens for chickens as well as a chicken coop.

This is a great old classic Marfa adobe house with lovely proportions and lots of room. Located at the very northern end of Russell Street on Columbia, it is an easy walk into town but is in a quiet residential neighborhood.
