Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Our family enjoys traveling especially to locations where we can enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and canoeing. We chose this location because of tranquil surroundings. Staying here is like being in your own private retreat.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe:
We selected this property because of the tranquil surroundings. The location is ideal because this home is away from the hustle and bustle of the city but it is within close proximity to all the convinces offered in a city. This property is minutes away from Field of Dreams baseball park and is a short drive away fro Galveston, Kemah and NASA.
