This 1930s home is located in Grapevine’s historic township and is just a few minutes away from the city’s vibrant downtown area, where you’ll find quaint shops, local restaurants and plenty of community events.
The main home was built in the 1930s, and the sellers have extensively renovated it, adding square footage to the main house and additional buildings to the property.
The main home is identified by a historic marker as the Boone Lipscomb house. According to a plaque on the front of the house, the home was built for a couple who were descendants of early Grapevine settlers. The home at 322 E. College St. was completed in 1934.
“The city of Grapevine has done an incredible job of protecting that heritage and is one of the reasons so many people find it a quaint and charming place,” said listing agent Sue Wykes of The Wykes Group at Coldwell Banker Realty.
What makes this property unique, Wykes noted, is that it’s more than an acre—a rarity in the historic Grapevine area. The 1.365-acre property is a combination of two lots in the neighborhood.

The property has a total of six bedrooms, four bathrooms and two half-bathrooms.
Four bedrooms are in the main house. There is a one-bedroom apartment in the carriage house and another one-bedroom space in the smaller cottage on the property. The carriage house was recently built and has room to store multiple vehicles and an RV. The property also has a barn for storage. According to the tax record, the property has 4,442 square feet of living space but Wykes said that property’s square footage has been expanded since that measurement was taken.
Wykes said the sellers made extensive renovations to the property. They added a new foundation and completely renovated the interior of the main house. She said that the sellers paid attention to the home’s history and many of the renovated design elements are a nod to the Art Deco era of the 1930s.
Inside, the home has a cozy living room, an office, a laundry room, a dining room and a bar. The basement is currently used as a media room. One bedroom is on the main level of the home and three bedrooms are on the second level, along with a game room. The home has multiple outdoor living spaces including the front porch, a back porch that has screens and a rooftop deck.
The property is listed for $6,000,000.
