Pottsboro house description

Located at the end of a secluded, paved country road with ample room to turn a boat trailer around and park. All of the owner's personal furnishings are intact so no need to pack anything except personal items, clothing, toys and food. Upon entering you will be pleased with a 25'high open ceiling great room with a river rock wood burning fireplace as the central focal point. Access to the upper and lower decks from the great room or surrounding deck walkways. A small sit down 'bar' separates the full kitchen from the dining area. Down the hall from the kitchen / great room area is a private bedroom with two single beds, closet, ceiling fan and across the hall a full bathroom with shower and tub. Further down the hall at the back entrance is a fully equipped laundry room with washer and dryer and shelves for storage. Outside the back door a wood deck walkway surrounds the house with access to a lockable large storage shed (only one on Lake Texoma with a deck, view of the lake and skylights!) This is suitable for skis, life jackets, fishing equipment etc. and has a work bench with vise for those unexpected repairs. A portable stainless 'fish cleaning sink' is available. The lofted master suite is accessed by a stairway with a beautiful original solid brass railing. The master has a commanding view of the lake by merely lifting your head off the pillow. The two walk in closets are lighted with ample room for all your travel items. Recessed dimmable flood lights abound throughout this home making it as cozy or crazy as you like.

This property is very secluded.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About the owner: We have been coming to Lake Texoma for a number of years as 'weekenders'. Now that we are semi-retired, we decided to move to the area full time. We enjoy golf, fishing and a plethora of friends. Being within an hour or so of DFW we can travel yet live the country life here.

              Why the Owner Chose Pottsboro:
              This 2-story modified A frame is approximately 1200 square feet with plenty of parking space and privacy. You can enjoy the lake all day and come back to refresh and relax in air conditioned comfort. In the winter months, you can enjoy a relaxing weekend with a wood burning fireplace and take in all of the surrounding activities. You can feel free to bring your pets. You will love the lake country life style and the world class fishing and boating. We bulit our retirement house just down the street so our original beautiful lake house is available to you. 'Come play, come stay' is the motto of Pottsboro.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This property is a year-round vacation spot, within walking distance of the lake. We are 5 minutes from Tanglewood Resort and some of the best dining in Texas. There are several challenging golf courses very close by and Highport Marina is a 5 minute drive as well. The property is located right in the middle of Lake Texoma and right in the middle of the islands. Our neighborhood deep water launch only costs $5.00 per day and has ample parking for cars and trailers with a launch area dock to load and unload passengers. It is truly one of the most convenient and desired rentals available.
