This two-story cottage is a Bandera Classic built on the site of an original 1943 home at 302 Cedar Street. The present owner retained the front façade and beautifully hand-crafted a new home, which was completed in 2012. The use of wood throughout the home creates a warm, vintage environment. The floors, wainscoting and upstairs paneling are stained wood. There is an open beam ceiling downstairs, and bead board ceiling upstairs.
The living room, kitchen, a small bedroom or study with windows along one side and a full bath are on the first floor. The larger bedroom, a full bath and a 6' x 10' covered balcony are upstairs.
A heat pump mini split HVAC was installed in 2017. There are ceiling fans throughout the house.
The exterior of the home is hardi-board, and the metal roof was installed in 2010. The 83' x 166' lot is landscaped and fenced for privacy. There are two 18' x 20' carports and a hidden workshop in the bamboo forest out back. The owner measures the house at 1400 sq. ft. (BCAD records show 1290), with 300+ feet of covered porches.
Located in the town of Bandera, at 302 Cedar Street is near Main Street and only two blocks from the Bandera City Park and the Medina River. The craftsmanship, creativity and location make this a rare, hidden sample of an old-time Bandera homestead with all the modern conveniences.
