                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About: Hello~ We are John & Malynda Williams. John just retired from OilField Construction and I retired May 2012 from Xerox- Kyle Office Products in Sales. Our careers took us many places in our 17+ years together and the Texas Gulf Coast was no exception. As a matter of fact, 7 years worth. In August 2008, John had a group fishing trip scheduled (of which he hooked a delicious AmberJack) so we decided it would be a great weekend getaway and perfect opportunity to visit our Cousins, Tim & Julita and their new home in Rockport. No sooner hugs were given, our Cousin Tim said, 'You too can Live like this!' Well, between John's successful fishing trip and my great memories & love for the ocean, we went house hunting. So, we said 'Y KNOT', a week later we signed a contract on our home in Aransas Pass. We bought a boat and of course we named it, 'Y KNOT!' Wanting to share this experience with others, In April & August 2010, we purchased two properties so we could do just that. We are the 3rd owners of this 1964 home and it is filled with history. The first owners built it from the ground up and rebuilt it after Hurricane Celia with what they could gather. Viola, a 1 BD/1 Bath with a kitchen was now a happy home. In 2008, the wife had an Estate Sale, and the Second owners bought the house outright at the sale. Completely renovated and updated from electrical, plumbing, cedar siding, laminate wood & tile floors, new appliances, laundry room, 2nd Bath, 2nd bedroom, Central AC/HT, 10 ceiling fans, to name a few. Even with all the updates, this 1600 sq. ft. home is very well laid out with some personality from the 1960's. So, what are you waiting for, Y KNOT GetawaY? Thank you for visiting our listing, we hope you will consider our home for your next getaway. 'YOU TOO CAN LIVE LIKE THIS!' Kindest Regards, John & Ms. RED Williams
