A unique opportunity to own a piece of Texas history; 444 Sidney Baker Street South had been the headquarters of legendary Texas entrepreneur, L.D. "Brink" Brinkmans operation for over 25 years. A well-known Brangus cattle breeder, prominent floor covering distributor, former owner of Mr. Gattis Pizza and an original investor in Home Depot, Brink added this 25+/- acres historical site to his array of real estate holdings using it not only as his place of business but also to display his highly respected western art collection.
This property sits on a hilltop in Kerrville with panoramic views of the city. Although the property was used by Brink as his company office, this really is a misnomer. Tulahteka, as the 13,900 square foot former Louis Schreiner Mansion was named when built in 1920, is a Renaissance Revival home restored to more than its former glory by Brink. Originally a ranch house overlooking 3,000 acres of ranch land inherited by the youngest son of Capt. Charles Schreiner (of the famous YO Ranch), the home was meticulously renovated by Brink in the 1980s.
The first thing one notices when stepping inside is the elegant sophistication of the space. Brown-and-cream marble flooring, off-white walls and draperies, and high ceilings with elaborate carved moldings provide a backdrop for European antiques. Light pours in from beveled glass windows, or shines from recessed lighting and exquisite chandeliers. The mansion is just coming to market due to Mr. Brinkmans death and the settlement of his estate. This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a prime property and piece of history wisely acquired by one of Texas' business superstars.
