The Benjamin Renard Homestead is in the heart of Rice Military's Magnolia Grove community. Ideally situated on a 4650 SQFT lot, this one-story cottage comes with one rich history. A native of France and real estate investor, Mr. Renard immigrated to America in 1875, later developing in Rice Military in the early 1900s. His "T" shaped house, named for its cross-axis floor plan, is a rare example of maintained Folk Victorian architecture and an urban farmhouse. While many of the finest original elements remain, the latest renovation is current with today's vision of modern living. Currently a business headquarters, the layout is equally comfortable as a residence. 10.5' ceilings, stainless appliances, granite counters, speakers with room volume controls, original wide-plank long-leaf pine, and marble flooring. Automatic driveway gate and fenced yard, irrigation system, and extended driveway. Come see why our City Council deservedly awarded this home Landmark Designation status in 2007!
