History buffs now have the unusual chance to live in The Alamo — a replica, that is — for the price of $1.35 million.

The original mission and military outpost in San Antonio receives more than 2.5 million tourists a year, but the replica in Spicewood, Texas — 45 minutes northwest of Austin — offers a very private alternative.

The Alamo replica home comes complete with rustic interior, 6,553 square feet of living space, and is equipped with five bedrooms, a home theater and private dock, making it just slightly more comfortable than the original mission building.

The replica features a grand entrance hall with exposed stone walls, wrought iron decorative features and a spiral staircase, and every room has been finished with rustic wood touches. As well as having an elevator, the waterfront home features an electric tram, which runs to the community dock and private boat slip.

The home's unique facade led to it being recently featured on HGTV's program Home Strange Home, a show which highlights unusual homes across the nation.

The $1.35 million property and home, constructed in 2007, is described in its Realtor.com listing as "a home for those who love the Texas Spirit." That seems to be a vast understatement.
