HISTORIC HOME - WALK TO DOWNTOWN, SHORT DRIVE TO TAMU

Bryan - College Station House Rental Photos and Description

House: 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths - lots of room indoors and outdoors

This historic home, built for Sim and Ruby Cooper in 1906, is located near downtown Bryan and is only a short drive to Texas A&M University (6 miles to Kyle Field). The home was the personal residence of an Architect for 15 years and it has been completely restored and updated.

The house has approximately 3,300 square feet of living space with high ceilings, large arches, and many large functioning windows. It has a large well-equipped kitchen, a large family room with an HD TV, a formal dining room, a breakfast area, a parlor and a formal living room. All of the floors are hardwood and many of the furnishings are antiques.

All of the bedrooms are located on the second floor, but there is queen sofa-sleeper on the first floor. Upstairs, one bedroom has twin beds, the master has a queen bed, and the other has a double bed and built-in office/workspace. An additional room upstairs off the master bedroom can be used as a dressing area, playroom or additional bedroom; it is furnished with a twin day bed. This room does not have direct access from the hallway and can only be entered through the master bedroom or another bedroom. The office/workspace has a built-in workstation (computer not provided) and lots of natural light from the windows on three sides. Downstairs in the original living room (which can be easily closed off from the rest of the house) is a queen sleeper sofa.

There is one bathroom upstairs and one bathroom downstairs. Each bathroom has a tub and shower. The bedrooms do not have private bathrooms. The bathrooms are not handicap accessible.

The large fenced yard includes a 6-8 person hot-tub, large patio and a covered porch. There is off-street parking for up to four cars and on street parking on a wide street in front.

Pets will be considered on a case by case basis.

The home is well designed for entertaining and social events. It can be rented for retreats, parties, reunions, football weekends, etc. Additional charges will apply for these events.

We request that you noify us in advance if you will be entertaining more than 10 people while you are here.

Please keep in mind that this home was built before modern air conditioning was available. Although it has been fitted with two central air-conditioning units (one for each floor), when the temperature rises above 100 degrees for an extended time - the units will keep the house comfortable, but not cold.

Keywords: historic, receptions, football weekends, Texas Reds Festival, reunion, business meetings, retreats, parties, social events, hot-tub, weddings, walk to downtown

We are professionals that live and work in the B/CS area. Our office is just a few blocks away and we are available by phone, text or email if you should have any questions or encounter any problems.

Elise Winchester purchased this house in 1996

This home was our personal residence for 15 years. Shortly after completing the last of the restoring and landscaping, we purchased another home and moved. This is a very comfortable house and we loved living here. We miss the convenience of walking to the farmer's market, shops, entertainment and restaurants in downtown Bryan.

Downtown Bryan is just a few blocks away. There you can find local restaurants, shopping, live theater, live music, and bars. Check the City of Bryan calendar for festivals and First Friday events. On Saturday mornings you can visit the Brazos Valley Farmers Market a short three block walk away. Just two blocks away is Sue Haswell Memorial park with tennis courts, a playground, 3 pavilions that can be rented from the City of Bryan, horseshoe courts, sand volleyball court, basketball court, and other amenities.
