Rockport house description

Exquisitely furished, beautiful vacation home with 'million dollar' views and PRIVATE FISHING PIER WITH HUGE LIGHT Located directly on Redfish Bay/Estes Flats and the intracoastal waterway. This home is in Bahia Bay, only minutes from historic, downtown Rockport, the famous Rockport Blue Wave Beach and Port Aransas.

Our upscale 3-bedroom bayfront home will comfortably accommodate a family, but it’s also perfect for four couples traveling together, or as a romantic and extra-spacious getaway for two.

Experience the amazing panoramic sunrises and sunsets of this charming home on property that is positioned between TWO waterways: a backyard that faces gorgeous Redfish Bay/Estes Flats, home to the best trout and redfish fishing the Texas Gulf Coast has to offer, and a front yard that faces a scenic canal. Sit on comfortable outdoor funiture on both the upper and lower decks and view the bay/intracoastal waterway that harbors plenty of dolphin and hundreds of birds. No other vacation home can offer its guests such amazing, peaceful views!

You will also be able to fish, boat, sail, kayak, or ski off your own private, lighted pier! Clean your catch in your own fishing stand, and cook your fish, including redfish, trout, catfish, flounder, etc., on a charcoal grill day and/or night.

Decorated with quality furnishings and fixtures, this home's beautiful hardwood floors span the kitchen and living area. The three bedrooms are lushly carpeted and the two baths and separate utility room with washer and dryer are tiled. Accommodations include a custom-built open-concept kitchen, dining and living area combined. The modern kitchen has a large circular breakfast bar and the dining area has a dining table, each seating 6. A dumbwaiter conveniently carries groceries and/or luggage from the garage up to the main floor for you. And the living area has a huge 65' cable TV with DVD player!

Also incuded are a huge master bedroom with 1 king-size and 1 queen-size bed and TV, a private, luxurious master bath with built-in storage drawers, bathtub, large two-person shower with double shower heads, and walk-in closet. The other two guest bedrooms each have comfortable queen-size beds, closets, and plenty of windows!

Are you needing to access the internet during your stay? Free Wi-Fi is included! Do you or your family enjoy going to the beach? If so, you'll be only minutes away from the beach in Rockport - the famous 'blue wave' beach on the bay, and 10 minutes to the ferry that will take you to Port Aransas - where you can enjoy the beach on the Gulf of Mexico.

Select this home for your next vacation with friends or family, or as a romantic get-away, to relax, enjoy the water, and just have fun!

                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About: I grew up living on the coast and my husband enjoys observing wildlife, so we picked Rockport as a place to work in 2002. It took us two years to find the perfect lot on which to build. Its close proximity to the intra coastal canal provided the feeling of living on the ocean. We were also able to enjoy great fishing year round, see plenty of amazing birds and dolphins, and watch tug boats, sailboats, motorboats on a continuous basis. Our whole family loved visiting us. When our son-in-law came to visit, he would come to bed after fishing all night, just as we were getting up for breakfast! When we had to move to another city a few years later, we just couldn’t sell this house. We hope you’ll enjoy all that it and Rockport has to offer just as we continue to do.

                          Why Rockport:
                          We chose this house for its location. Being positioned directly on the bay and across from a canal, it offers beautiful panoramic views from both the front and back. Being able to watch the boats going back and forth and the birds flying overhead is so relaxing. And the sunrises and sunsets are to die for! The sounds that come from the bay are so soothing - there is nothing like the sound of a tug boat pulling at its horn as it slowly goes by at sundown. We also love being able to fish on our own pier any time during the day or night when we want to do so.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Some of the house's unique benefits are its 1) close proximity to the intracoastal waterway and, therefore, EXCELLENT FISHING, 2) private, lighted pier with fish cleaning stand, 3)gorgeous panoramic views in front and back, 4)open layout of the house, custom-built features, and quality furnishings and fixtures, 5) 65' tv set with cable, 6) and Wi-Fi!. We built the house to live in when my husband practiced medicine in Rockport, so it's not your typical vacation home.
