This Folk Victorian farmhouse built in 1905 was previously located at 117 Long Prairie Road in Flower Mound, Texas. It was situated on the plateau of a four hundred acre tract north of Denton Creek, part of the Grape Vine Prairie. When its land was sold for commercial development, the Roberson House was donated by its owners to the City of Grapevine’s Township Revitalization Project, Inc. program to be saved and moved to the Grapevine Historic Township and serve as a single family home.
In its new location at 608 South Dooley Street, between East College and East Hudgins Streets, the 1,973 square feet house is nestled between two important historic homes: the 1901 Rev. Hudgins House and the 1883 McPherson Farmhouse. The Roberson House was placed on a new engineered concrete foundation. Its masonry fireplaces with chimneys were moved intact with the house from its original location. Following the Design Guidelines established for the College Street Residential Historic District Landmark Designation, the exterior of the house has been stabilized.
The interior of the Roberson House is in near original condition, occupied as a residence until 2020. The house retains its original wood staircase complete with newel post, handrail, balusters and interior paneling. The house features tall ceilings and the original wood floors are intact. To the left from the entry is a large living room with a fireplace; to the right, a door opens to a study with another fireplace. Beyond is the large dining room and kitchen area overlooking the rear yard.
Upstairs there are three large bedrooms, the large windows in these rooms provide much natural light in the interior rooms, and beautiful views to the rear yard with its native trees.
Homebuyer custom interior alterations and interior modifications are allowed and are not subject to the requirements of the Design Guidelines for Landmark Designation of the College Street Residential Historic District.
Interested parties may review the property and obtain the full bid packet upon request by contacting David Klempin, Historic Preservation Officer, at 817 410-3197.
