Texas has no shortage of expansive mansions and rustic country digs. So when a luxurious property shows up that combines authentic 19th-century history with spacious ease, it has to be good.

The main house on this stunning Fredericksburg property revels in the natural texture of cottage living without sparing in luxury. Any aspiring dinner party hosts looking for a unique Texas-inspired space? This dining room brings back a sense of the Old West, but with a chic twist.

But wait, there’s more! This cottage property actually comes with two houses.

The second, albeit smaller, house is an original structure from the 1850s. According to the property listing, this is one of the original 75 structures from the townsite of Fredericksburg. It even has a front porch worthy of a 19th-century Texan.

The log-cabin walls give the four-room cottage an historic feel complete with a fireplace.
