Surfside Beach house description

Making Memories is a 5 bedroom 3 bathroom beachfront house just completed in July 2012. We love spending time at our house and love seeing others enjoy it also. Come be some of the first guests to stay in this beautiful home.

The house is located right on the beach with a newly constructed private walk over just steps away from the water in Surfside Beach. The stress melts away as you climb the stairs or ramp and hear the sound of the waves. It is in the new Velasco Shores Subdivision right next to Stahlman Park.

All the furniture and furnishings are brand new. The house has many windows and offers amazing beach views from anywhere in the living area along with the from the master bedroom and bedroom 2. It has wonderful finishes throughout and is designed with large groups in mind. The house offers 10’ high ceilings throughout with a cathedral ceiling in the living room, dining room, and kitchen area. There is wainscoating in the hallway and 8' high doors throughout the house. The kitchen is designed with entertaining in mind and has plenty of room to move around, stainless steel appliances, large french door refrigerator, tons of counter space, and a large 8’ granite island that seats 4 people. The kitchen is open to the dining room and living room area so you can still be part of the group while you cook. There is also a large 8' x 4' counter top height table in the dining room that seats 10-12 people. The living room has a large 50' LCD flat screen TV, Blueray/DVD player, stereo with IPod Dock, PlayStation 2 for the kids and a leather sectional with queen sleeper. There is a large 10’x40’ covered porch to escape the sun while you enjoy the beautiful views and sound of the waves. We added a private walk over in the spring of 2013 to allow easy access from the deck directly to the beach. There is also a shower under the house with hot water for washing the sand off and plenty of parking both on the concrete under the house and in the large driveway. There is a gas grill, and a picnic table under the house. There is also a ramp that makes it much easier to bring your luggage, coolers, etc. up to the house.

The house has five bedrooms and sleeps approximately 18 people. It includes a master bedroom with a king size bed, 32' LCD TV w/ Dish Hopper, and master bathroom with a vessel sink & granite countertop and a 4' shower. Bedrooms 2 and 3 both have queen beds and share a Jack and Jill bathroom with granite countertop, dual sinks, and a shower. Bedrooms 4 and 5 are bunkrooms but also have full size beds so they can be used for adults if needed. Bedroom 4 has a full bunk bed along with 2 twin bunk beds. Bedroom 5 has a full bunk bed and a twin bunk bed and includes a TV with Dish Hopper and DVD Player. Bath 3 is located right across the hall from Bedrooms 4 and 5 and has a bathtub. There is also a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a pack n play.

Surfside Beach is about an hour south of Houston. There are endless possibilities for fun regardless of the season. The house is located within the Villiage of Surfside Beach Limits and only 1.5 miles from restaurants, etc. There is a paved trail along Bluewater Highway that leads right to town. The house is located in the newly constructed Velasco Shores neighborhood which consists of 10 lots and is a very closely knit community with wonderful neighbors and few rental properties. It is located across the street from the public crabbing pier and fishing is everywhere. You can fish in the surf, in the bay, off a pier, or deep sea with a charter boat.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: We live just north of Houston and have 2 children ages 7 and 10. We built Making Memories to create memories with our kids before they are grown and out of the house. They love the beach and spending time at the beach is a great opportunity to slow down and connect with family and friends. We hope you can use our home to create your own memories.

          Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach:
          We found this subdivision and really fell in love with the spectacular views and large lots. Our house is located on a cul-de-sac with lots of room around the houses and plenty of parking.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We looked at many existing homes before deciding to build this house. We were looking for something newer with higher end finishes and just couldn't find anything already built that met our criteria. We were able to customize the floorplan to create a very family friendly atmosphere with a large gathering area and plenty of beds.
