66 Stonecastle, Alamo

We wrote about this stunning Carr Jones storybook home three years ago when it was on the market as a foreclosure. Jones was not given credit for the home then, nor is he now, but it is clearly his handiwork. Fortunately, it has not been altered too much since it was last for sale and it still retains much of Jones’ particular brand of hand made and rough-hewn period revival craftsmanship. And as a bonus, the original carriage house next door which was also designed by Jones has recently been for sale as well.

    Sadly, the Stone Castle has lost a LOT of Jones’ unique details as most of the intricate woodwork has been covered up or worse yet, removed. This exquisite home was where I was raised and it’s incredibly upsetting to see that most of the interior details have been lost…Jones’ craftsmanship and attention to detail in the built-in cabinetry is gone. There was a unique copper topped wood bar in the formal living room and a beautifully carved wood mantel over the fireplace, “Grow Old Along With Me, The Best Is Yet To Be”. Such an incredible home nearly destroyed by someone with zero design sense…heartbreaking.
