Calling all buyers who like the boondocks. This starter home sits on a large corner lot in the tiny town of Sagerton, Texas (pop. 115).Don’t blink if you are driving through Sagerton, though, because you will miss the place.
The town was founded 1905 and was named after the local landowner. W.M. Sager, who donated land for the community.
With two railroad line connections, Sagerton soon became a shipping point for beef, chicken and cotton.
Two horrific fires, however, (1917 and 1926) ruined Sagerton’s plans for prosperity. The mercantile (shown below) is gone, and the old store on our featured home’s property is closed. I suppose a new owner could set up some kind of online business in it, but the population is unlikely to support a brick-and-mortar business.
This is a must-see property. This starter home features 3 bedrooms and one bath. Sits on a huge corner lot in the peaceful little town of Sagerton. Has nice size bedrooms, nice open kitchen and original hard wood floors.
Also features several outdoor buildings that could be used as a man cave, she sheds or great for storage. Once there was a store in one of the buildings. There is also a concrete minnow tank that could be used for several projects and a cellar that is in great condition. This property has great potential for any project or ideas your imagination desirers.
