Area Description: Situated in the beautiful, historic Oliver Eakles neighborhood, this graceful home neighbors Amarillo College, ranked as one of the nation’s top five community colleges as a 2021 Aspen Prize Finalist and recently awarded a $15M gift from author and philanthropist MacKenzie Scott. The college has been further enriched with the presence of a grant-funded greenhouse, providing rich research opportunities for students in STEM fields. The heartbeat of the neighborhood is a thriving arts community, comprised of the Amarillo Museum of Art, Amarillo Opera, and Amarillo Lamplight theater. With its rich history and emphasis on education and art, no neighborhood could be more conducive to the operation of a luxury bed & breakfast. Such a space has the potential to become a gem within the community and graceful and seamless extension of this historic neighborhood.
Site Description: With its 3/4 acre estate lot, this home is truly a beautiful sprawl. Several outdoor living areas, including the completely rebuilt garden pavilion, inspire outdoor gatherings and alfresco dinners. What a beautiful place to entertain or simply enjoy the lush natural beauty, including a lawn full of mature trees (professionally lit for all seasons). This garden lot appeals to bed and breakfast guests and has the potential to inspire beautiful outdoor gatherings. The property is zoned to operate as a bed and breakfast, Airbnb, or luxury short-term rental and includes the option to purchase the smaller home next door, which was originally built as part of the estate and currently operates as a successful, Superhost-rated Airbnb.
Structural Description: This historic, 101-year-old estate home exudes grace. The masterful beauty of its Classical architecture is balanced with an unapologetically youthful appreciation for fashion and design. While intelligent and dignified, the home possesses a disarming playfulness and charm. This is made evident in the historically sensitive remodel, which marries the glamour of a ’20s estate with a contemporary air. From the completely renovated and redesigned interior to the expansive grounds and newly built guest apartment, the beauty of the home simply abounds. Consider it the utterly enchanting, southern answer to Downton Abbey.
Interior highlights include couture colors, Schumacher wallpaper, and luxury finishes. A historic home like this simply cannot be replicated today, and the quality of its build and original character shines through in period details. A deep Southern porch feels timeless, and several outdoor living areas, including the completely rebuilt garden pavilion, encourage a seamless design experience from the inside out. With 6300 finished beautifully imagined square ft., the home’s beauty is enduring, its architecture peerless. This kind of home is an *experience.*
The newly built, 1110 sq ft. guest apartment is a gem of a space, as opulent as any guest house you’ve seen. High-quality finishes, like glass tile, gemstone pulls, and tiled flooring, elevate this artistic space. The climate-controlled garage includes heating and air-conditioning, perfect for a workshop, art studio, or creative space.
This home is unlike any in Amarillo, blessed with a grace and presence all its own. Experience its indescribable charm and great potential as a high-class business.
