                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: My name is Jason and I have lived in this neighborhood on and off since 1978 I love Galveston .B.I.O

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      This house is one of the only ones left standing in this secluded neighborhood on offets bayou after being devastated by hurricane Ike in 2008. I have done everything new and top shelf . I watched this house go from beautiful house to ugly and battered , so I stepped in and made it a work of art.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Very close to everything in Galveston not more than 15 minutes to anywhere in Galveston . The gulf breeze flows night and day when sitting on the front porch and every fri. and sat. night you can watch the moody garden firework display from the back yard.
