The Sheehan House built in 1890

This lovely adobe home is full of grace that speaks of an era long gone. From the 18 inch thick adobe walls to the original hard wood floors, it makes you feel like you have been taken back in time upon entering. The stately grace that fills the formal living room at the front of the home leaves you longing for grace and elegance. Furnished and decorated with family heirlooms, you feel the stresses of today’s world float away and a slow pace and calm come over you. You just want to sink into the front room setee and have a good gab with a friend.

The long galley kitchen has nourished countless people with so much more than food. If the walls could talk this family hub could tell tales of new babies, hardships and woe, giant joys and praises. It’s a central gathering place for soul food and food for the soul.

From the kitchen, you step into a back room that contains the dining area as well as the family den. The table can be found set with three generation old china and overflowing flower center pieces that are reminiscent of deep southern heritage, style and grace. Or, cards laid out for hours of family fun and play late into the night. There have been family gatherings of 20+ full of laughter, love, teasing and fun!!

The children play, within view of the dining area, in the den on the other end of this beautiful long room. The den offers an area of comfort and relaxation. The view through the six windows across the back room into the expansive back yard and of the big elm and Mulberry trees has the feel of being hidden away from town all while being at the very heart of it. A great place to binge watch your favorite show or gather with friends to watch the big game!

At the end of the den there is a door begging to be opened just to know what is on the other side. The quiet secluded office/crafts room just invites you to sit and find a project to while away the hours with.

Beside the office is a quaint bathroom with a large linen closet.

Behind the office/craft room is a darling bedroom with a long history. It was first a carport that was later converted into a beauty shop as was common at the time. Later this was joined to the home by adding the office/craft room. One can almost hear the whispers of ages of town gossip, friendly chats and the pouring out of hearts in this room.
