East End Historic District house description

The Victorian Jewel is situated in the heart of Galveston’s charming Silk Stocking Historic District. Centrally located, you will be minutes from the many attractions that Galveston has to offer. The beach is within walking distance.

This 2,246 sq. ft. John Rourke home has the distinctive double gallery front porch and offers the ambiance of the past and present with its beautiful hardwood floors and tall ceilings. The living room has comfortable seating and an entertainment center with a 42” TV (Satellite-Direct TV). The spacious cheery kitchen has antique tin ceiling tiles on back-splash and ceiling and equipped with all the modern conveniences of home. The dining room features a Duncan Phyfe antique table that sits 6 and a kitchen table that seats 3. The Victorian Jewel sleeps 6 comfortably with all SERTA PILLOW TOP MATTRESSES. The downstairs bedroom has a full sized canopy bed. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a king sized bed and the guest bedroom has a Queen sized four poster bed. The TV/sitting room is convertible to a fourth bedroom (with a queen sleeper sofa) to accommodate an additional 2 guests for a total of 8 guests. The bathroom downstairs features an antique claw foot tub. There is also a full bathroom upstairs wth a shower/tub combination.

Start your morning with coffee on one of the two bricked patio gardens, tastefully landscaped with colorful flowers and plants and listen to the doves cooing.

Kempner Park is only 2 blocks away where you can stroll among the tall palm trees and century old live oaks. It is one of the few surviving Victorian-era parks in Texas. The park is also home to the 1880 Garten Verein Pavilion.

The beautiful echo of the church bells tolling take you back into an era of long ago. Also, if you get the chance to attend church on the island…some of the oldest churches in Texas are located in Galveston and the services are simply unforgettable

Island magic and positive energy surround this Galveston beauty built in 1860, as it is a survivor of Mother Nature wraths of Hurricanes from the Great Storm of 1900 through the 2008 Ike devastation.

Because The Victorian Jewel is located in the heart of Galveston, you will be minutes from many attractions such as the Historic Strand, museums, art galleries, great birding sites, dining and even affordable fishing charters. Family-oriented attractions like Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn and The Lone Star Flight Museum are just a short drive away.

Restaurant's abound- whether you are in the mood for Mexican, Seafood or Italian, they are all nearby. Arrange for a horse drawn carriage ride to and from dinner by calling Island Carriages (409) 765-6951.

From miles of sandy beaches to famous 19th century architecture, the island is surrounded with incredible history and unique beauty. The Victorian Jewel is the perfect place to unwind during your Galveston Island Getaway
