1030 Pujo Street, Rhino Rhenovators
While the Cash couple largely lived on the second floor of the house, the ground floor was used to store their extensive collection of furniture, architectural elements, and Texas memorabilia.
The extensive property and carriage house are located on the eastern edge of the National Register Charpentier Historic District. Pujo Street, named for the prominent pioneer Pujo family, has many unusual showplace historic houses, including this one, lovingly sustained by a longtime preservation champion, and ultimately refreshed for modern life.
Highlights from American Press article August 4, 2013
The two-story home has a front porch and balcony. Unique to the home is a side porch and balcony along with the Carriage home in the back. The carriage home was recently converted into two apartments. Home was recently rewired and new plumbing installed.
What was once the back parlor has been converted into a modern kitchen. The kitchen was previously located upstairs. Without a restroom on the first floor, a new one was installed downstairs located just off the back study.
The home features a front parlor, dining room, a back study, breakfast room, and entry parlor downstairs. The second floor features three bedrooms and three bathrooms along the sitting room with the fireplace.
The two fireplaces downstairs are not original to the home but the fireplace in the entrance hall is original.
The stained-glass window in the front of the house is the age of the house but is not original to the home.
