Designed and built in 1899 by noted Galveston Architect Nicholas Clayton whose repertoire included the Gresham’s Castle (AKA The Bishop’s Palace) this lovely late Victorian joined neighbors Samuel May Williams and Michele Menard as early settlers in what is now known as midtown. It was built on what was Thomas Borden’s (Of Elsie the Cow Fame ) farm. The expansive wrap around front porch is a perfect introduction to the treasures inside that include architectural details such as beautiful stained glass, spectacular wood floors, and stairwell, bay windows,crown molding and pocket doors. This 3/3.5 also boasts an elevator, a 525 sq ft 3rd floor children’s wing(complete with a spiral stairwell) a 363 sq. ft. guest quarters with bath, a 2 garage and a fenced in corner lot. Plenty of room for one’s pets to roam throughout the fenced in corner lot as well as hosting a lawn party!
