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.
