East End Historic District house description

The Jewel of the Isle is a newly renovated, family friendly 1910 Queen Ann style beach house retreat and is just a 4 block stroll to the Seawall- Beach-Pleasure Pier. It is a little over 2500 sq. ft. , has central a.c./heat, is very spacious, features tall ceilings, original hardwood floors & gorgeous molding throughout. The house is decorated with fun & whimsical art by local artist Bonnie Blue. The Living room has comfortable seating and a 42' flat screen TV with xfinity cable and a DVD player. All of the bedrooms have a 32' flat screen TV w/DVD player. The kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steele appliances and is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need.

There is a full bathroom downstairs which has a walk-in shower and a full bathroom upstairs that has a tub/shower combination. We offer free wireless WIFI, washer/dryer, linens & towels.
The atmosphere is laid back, hunt for shells on West Galveston's empty beaches, see your favorite performing artists at the Grand Opera House, keep your binoculars handy for Galveston's outstanding fall and spring bird migrations, enjoy popular island events such as Dickens on the Strand and Mardi Gras, or a host of other Galveston Island activities... in other words, enjoy Island living just like a local!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About the owner: We acquired this property in August of 2011 and it has taken us over a year to renovate. We love Galveston Island.

          Why the Owner Chose East End Historic District:
          We were drawn to this property because of the Pleasure Pier and we had the vision of the beautiful house it once was. At some time, this house was made into an upstairs and a downstairs apartment. We turned the house back into a single residence dwelling. Amazingly enough, most of the gorgeous woodwork had not been painted. The floors are original. We wanted to keep the original charm of the house and make it more up to date and family friendly. Hope you enjoy!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Walking distance to the Pleasure Pier and save $16 for all day parking. Pleasure Pier opens at 10:00 and their are live bands on the weekend and closes at 12:00 midnight during the summer. You are able to come and go and enjoy it at your leisure. Walk to several restaurants and only a short drive to the Strand, moody Gardens & Schlitterbahn. We are only 1/2 block from the 25th street Mardi-Gras parade route & 4 blocks from the Seawall Mardi-Gras parade route.
