Property Description

The historic Bell House, commissioned in 1897 by esteemed US Congressman G.F.

This exquisite residence epitomizes the splendor of Victorian architecture, boasting seven distinctive gables and adorned with four elegant fireplaces.

One can only dream of residing within such a captivating dollhouse; it is truly a remarkable gem. Lovingly restored, you will find wood floors throughout as well as a restored kitchen reflecting period correct appliances. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Gonzales’ historic past.
