Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am a widow and the mother of 5 children. A former retail manager, corporate auditor, ostrich farmer, marine biologist and cafe owner... I now own and manage the Lil House by the Sea. I am looking forward to this new venture and all the excitement and new friends it brings our way.

Why the Owner Chose Silk Stocking District:
My Husband and I had talked about buying this house before he died and turning it into a cafe... since Robert's passing I couldn't travel anymore with my job at NOAA so it seemed the next logical move to make that dream a reality. After totally redoing the house to make it a parkside cafe we opened in January 2010. The family helped me run it and over the 2 1/2 yrs we were open we met many dear friends and neighbors. It however proved to be to much and we closed the cafe and low and behold ...the LIL HOUSE BY THE SEA was born. Heres to new adventures!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are many unique benefits to our Lil House, location location location! 1 block to the beach and Pleasure Pier! Across the street from Galveston's Menard Park and Rec Center, which includes a first class skate park, tennis courts, a playground and a nicely equipped recreation center. All great places to mingle with locals and tourists alike!
