                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: My wife and I have 5 children and have lived in Abilene for over 30 years. Since our children have now grown and spread out a bit over Texas, family get-together's are of highest priority and 'The Haven' provides that for us. We haven't owned the property that long, so some of the walls still look a bit bare since we are still decorating! We hope you enjoy 'The Haven' as much as we do! Psalm 107:30 Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven. (Psa 107:30 ESV)

                      Why the Owner Chose Possum Kingdom Lake:
                      Our favorite feature is the sandy beach at waters edge. This make the home as 'grandchildren' friendly as a lake house could be. The design of the home with the optional optional 'Cottage' allows us to easily accommodate 20 people.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The BEACH!
