Houston house description

Wouldn't you love to wake up in the morning to fetch a basket of fresh eggs for breakfast, take a horseback ride, or take a walk by the lovely Cypress Creek? Enjoy go-carts, zip-lining, horseback riding, practicing your golf-swing, and picnicking in the gazebo all within the comfort of your backyard. If you are training for a marathon or a bike tour, you can run or bike for hours around the neighborhood or on the scenic forested and marked trails by the creek. Inside of this authentic country style plantation home you can unwind and relax after a long day of fun. The home is furnished with new leather and wood furniture and feels just like the home you grew up in. This relaxing vacation getaway is exactly what every traveler needs within the hustle and bustle of Houston, Texas.
