A unique opportunity to own a home in the Historic Grapevine Township
212 E. Texas St.
This house has sold
The property was owned by Grapevine harness maker J. H. Withrow, who with his wife lived here from 1923 through the 1940s. The house was built in 1955 by C. V. Tidwell. The prominent Texas Street location, across from the First Baptist Church of Grapevine, has been home to leading families of Grapevine for generations. The house was acquired by the First Baptist Church and used as a Community Outreach Center. The City of Grapevine purchased the house to return it to use as a Single Family house and maintain the streetscape of East Texas Street.
The Withrow-Tidwell House is built in the minimal traditional style popular after World War II. It features an asymmetrical plan with a gabled roof and multiple setbacks giving the house an impressive ranch house appearance. The windows are wood, six over six paired units, on the front of the house and exposed rafter tails at the roof line. Overlay siding has been placed over the original wood siding below. The inset front porch has wrought iron railings and porch columns. Inside there is a large living room with a wide hallway connecting to the kitchen; a dining room; four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Homebuyer interior alterations and interior modifications are allowed and are not subject to the requirements of the Design Guidelines for Historic Landmark Designation of the Withrow-Tidwell House.
