GALVESTON, Texas – Three floors of restored Victorian splendor are for sale in Galveston for $1,375,000.

“The Adams League Mansion has been meticulously restored,” realtor Thomas Schwenk told KPRC 2 about the home. “The historic vintage feeling is evident throughout.”

Just look at that porch with the haint blue ceiling. Southern charm, check.

The 6,295 square foot home at 2314 Avenue M has seven to nine bedrooms, seven full and two half-baths, in addition to a gourmet kitchen and carriage house. The rooms feature stunning candelabras, pocket doors (be still our heart), and a library with room for all the favorite tomes one could collect in a lifetime. Victorian splendor, check.

Beyond all that, the home also has a bona fide piece of Galveston Gulf history: One of the outbuildings called the “Balinese Room” features the front door handles of the original Balinese Room that was destroyed and then fully demolished following Hurricane Ike.

The mansion is centrally located in Galveston seven blocks from the Seawall and beach, and 11 blocks from the Strand Historic District.

Take a look inside the home which currently functions as a popular Airbnb and small wedding venue. See the full listing.
