The barbecue capital of Texas is rapidly expanding its menu for visitors and locals alike. Cute wine bars, a vampiric-themed bookshop, hip galleries, and new culinary hot spots serving up more than just smoked meats are turning the timeless town square into a modern destination. As this rapid growth shows no signs of stopping, now is the time to stake a claim, and there’s no better way to do it than with ownership of one of these landmark mansions in Lockhart that are on the market. While they might need some extra care, they each have the potential to be overbooked bed and breakfasts, the premiere getaway resort, or even a familial vacation home.

“The Cibilo House” | $1,290,000

417 Cibilo St., Lockhart, TX 78644

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, 3,718 square feet

A recently refurbished manor, a quick drive from the town square, and all the fantastic furniture that looks straight out of a West Elm photoshoot are included in the property’s price. While the whole house is stunning, the architectural gem of the Cibilo House is the intricate, almost floating central staircase that acts as the heart of the home. It connects the living spaces above with the social spaces below with a landing that overlooks the front and back foyer and dining room and bridges the main suite and office with the other bedrooms. Above the three-car garage, you will find an additional apartment. Completely furnished, it offers many opportunities – a rental unit or a space for in-laws for a multigenerational home with a sought-after separation of space.

“The Judges House” | $995,000

703 W San Antonio St., Lockhart, TX 78644

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 4,886 square feet

While it still needs a little more polish, this gem on San Antonio Street known as The Judges House, is an ideal fit for those looking to take on home projects larger than painting cabinets, but far less overwhelming than a complete renovation. The original balcony over the main entrance facing San Antonio St. is a perfect reprieve with plenty of greenery. It is also part of the house that could feature its own balcony if constructed by any new owners. Below the home is a basement that could also be folded into being finished with the few remaining spaces that need to be completed, along with an attic that can easily fit more rooms above. Essentially, taking the home from a two-story to four without any need for an addition or change to the gorgeous Greek revival facade.

“The Adam’s Estate” | $1,400,000

1125 Magnolia St., Lockhart, Texas, 78644

6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, 5730 square feet

From home to hotel, the historic Adam’s Estate could quickly become Lockhart’s premiere getaway. Initially designed in the 1930s, architect Phil Lloyd Shoop broke up the home design pattern in Lockhart with a landmark Tudor Revival. Complete with ornate custom tile sharing heritage as the Commodore Perry Estate in North Austin, this home will effortlessly enchant every visitor to dream of what it could be made into. Off the kitchen is the basement, which once served as a speakeasy a long time ago in the mansion’s history and, with a retouch, could quickly be brought back to its boozy glory.  Upstairs, after the landing with a reading nook on the mezzanine, the main rooms are spacious with their own uniquely tiled bathrooms. Each has an enclosed shower, sharing the cathedral arching motif, crowning the house’s entryways. While the Adams estate can be bought independently, two neighboring properties can be added. These could also function as forts of sorts while the main house is remade into whatever a new owner envisions it as—a hotel or home.
