The Foote-Hawkins House is an historic 4,300 square foot, 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home built in the late 19th century. The two-story, wood-framed estate sits on approximately one acre with 192+/- feet of frontage along Main Street-Boerne. The property is zoned B-2 (commercial), and offers appealing options for development, such as a bed and breakfast, retail or office space. An additional 1.46 acres is available. (See broker for price and details.) The additional land backs up to the Old No. 9 Walking Trail, the rail path converted to green space by the City of Boerne. The walking trail meanders throughout the city, eventually connecting to Cibolo Nature Center.
The Boerne Public Library archives report that in February, 1897, D. A. Foote purchased Boerne Lot 12 from the Beseler family, which was a ten acre tract, where the Footes built this home. The other parts of the property were sold off at various times. After several owners, the Ellis Adam family remodeled it in 1967. Most recently, the owners used the estate as their residential homestead for the past 20 years, and made several improvements and updates.
This property is a lovely old homeplace, but it is situated perfectly to become a prime hospitality property in the heart of Boerne, or commercial offices for a small business. Call today to schedule a showing.
