A treasured Longview landmark can be yours! The fabulous 1946 Dr. Johnston home that most recently housed Classics Furniture & Interiors, is offered for sale with 3 acres of land. The property is home to amazing, mature trees! One magnolia tree out front is a spectacular sight to see! During a 2019 storm, two large trees fell on the north end of the structure which housed the bedrooms, baths, laundry & a large bonus room. It is also where the second water heater and HVAC system & gas meter was housed. The electrical box is gone that controlled certain lights & outlets to the remaining structure. The owners decided to sale and not rebuild. The piers remain for new construction of a number of possibilities: a home, offices, boutique shopping, or a fabulous restaurant with patio dining and a fenced back area that would be awesome for live bands where dogs & children could play! There is currently parking for 18 vehicles and plenty of land to add additional spaces. The property boasts new casement windows, as is vinyl wood plank in the kitchen & breakfast area, the roof raised seam copper shingles are believed 7 years old. A little attention and the original wood floors will look fabulous again! The exterior offers a unique look with the clinker brick, cedar shake shingles, stucco, and new beams around the porte-cochere. The foundation is quite solid on this well built home. . A large picture window overlooks the massive concrete back patio. French doors and a Dutch door are unique additions to this beautiful building! At one point, a portion of the building was also home to a food & wine restaurant business. The kitchen area was remodeled to city code, and a 500-gallon grease trap was placed and remains in the backyard. A heavy farmhouse sink remains in the kitchen, and if a buyer has no use for certain items contained within, such as the kitchen sink, fireplace mantels, etc., the seller reserves the right to retain such items. The original house was 4168 square feet of which approximately 2268 square feet remain of the main building, (per Gregg County Appraisal District). The second building/workshop is approximately 500 square feet. Utilizing water from the lake via a working pump is available for a sprinkler system that covers most of the property, although the sprinklers have not been used since 2019. There is 268' of frontage on Judson Rd with dual entrances. The wider of the two driveways will accommodate semi-trucks. The second building has water & electricity along with an in-wall A/C unit. It is under the same roof as the primary home & is connected by the porte-cochere. A nice work/storage room is connected, facing the west with the original workbench intact. An elaborate entry desk of walnut was built at the main entrance and would be ideal for a new commercial endeavor. The back acreage has a delightful gazebo with stone sidewalks and stone paths as you meander through the mature trees of the gorgeous grounds! The possibilities are endless with this beautiful gem!
