This Brackenridge Park fixer-upper may look like a haunted house, but there's spooky potential

With the gnarled tree appearing to claw at its roof and the age-weathered cedar shingles cladding its sides, it's safe to say this 1920 home for sale near Brackenridge Park looks a little ominous. Maybe even a little haunted.

That said, the interior of the seven-bedroom, three-bath property shows plenty of potential for someone willing to swing a hammer. From the house's cute breakfast nooks and glass-fronted built-in cabinets to its hardwood floors and clawfoot tubs, there are plenty of original features begging for TLC.

The surrounding Westfort Historic District is also laden with history, having attracted prominent residents during the early 1900s including U.S. Mint Director Frank Scobey, prominent local architect C.T. Boelhauwe and renowned sculptor Gutzon Borglum.

The property, now on the market for $540,000, is currently divided up as triplex, presumably during the time many of homes in the neighborhood were carved up as rentals for Fort Sam Houston personnel. Still, it could be reworked as a single-family residence for a dweller not averse to potentially sharing living quarters with a few spirits.

This home is listed by Aimee Wudel with RE/MAX Corridor.
