Rockport house description

This family-friendly luxury 4 bedroom/4.5 bath home is truly exceptional! Located on a prestigious private drive on Key Allegro Island, this special place provides a quiet comfortable retreat where you and your family and friends can relax and play. Enjoy fishing from our new private pier in Aransas Bay across from your front door. Dock your boat in the canal behind the house where the kids can swim. Or hire a local guide to take you fishing in the many nearby bays or the Gulf of Mexico. Sip your morning coffee on the pier or our benches 10 feet from the edge of the bay beside our large bronze sailfish, or in the palm garden just outside the living room. Savor sunsets from the 2nd story front balcony or the large back porch. Snuggle up in front of the fireplace. Soak up the serenity from inside this well-lit and airy home with vaulted ceilings and large glass windows both front and back! Dine out at one of many outstanding nearby restaurants or cook in using the large, well-appointed kitchen with island and bars on both sides. If you want to stay at one of the nicest properties on the Texas Gulf Coast, this is is the house for you! I look forward to hearing from you.

New private fishing pier was completed June 2011.

                                  Fish on our private pier in our front yard, or at night over our submerged 'green ball' fishing light in the canal behind the house. The kids will love the calm beach and playscapes at the nearby Rockport beach park. While watching for dolphins, ride the ferry to Port Aransas and enjoy the expansive ocean beach and surf of the Gulf of Mexico. Or just relax down the street by the Key Allegro Island swimming pool and grab a bite at the marina restaurant. You are only 30 minutes from the State Aquarium and the USS Lexington aircraft carrier museum in Corpus Christi. Take a Whooping Crane tour at nearby Aransas Wildlife Refuge. Tour the historic Fulton Mansion just a few blocks away.

                                  Year Purchased: 1999

                                  About the owner: Paul Hudson was born and raised in Austin and has lived there all his life with the exception of one year in Brazil and 4 ½ years at Texas A&M University in College Station. In addition to a B.B.A. from Texas A&M in Business Computer Science, he holds a M.B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin, with specialization in real estate and finance. Immediately after graduation from UT in 1989, Paul started a consulting business, which has evolved into a commercial real estate firm now known as Hudson Properties, Inc. Paul holds a Texas Real Estate Broker license, as well as a Texas Loan Officer license. He is a member of the Austin Board of Realtors, the Central Texas Commercial Association of Realtors and the Commercial Leasing Brokers Association.

He is also a graduate of Leadership Austin’s Class of 2003. Paul has served in many leadership roles at First United Methodist Church of Austin, including Lay Leader, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Chairman of the Property Committee and Co-Chair of a $3,100,000 Capital campaign. He is currently a member of St. Johns United Methodist Church, where he serves on the Board of Trustees and as member of the Companions Sunday School Class.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Rockport:
                                  We owned a smaller house in Rockport since 1979 and have always loved the atmosphere of the town. Key Allegro is the most vibrant community in Rockport and this house in particular is stunningly beautiful and comfortable – open and airy – it just has a wonderful feel. It was way above our price range, but once we saw it, we couldn’t live without it!
