Property description

Welcome to our charming historic home. Built in 1893, this Victorian style home is located in a Renaissance District in the heart of Galveston, two blocks behind St. Patrick’s Church. The house is a survivor of the Great Storm of 1900.

About the owner: We have lived in the Houston area all of our lives and always loved spending time in Galveston, going to the Mardis Gras, Saturday evening 'Art Walks,' Dickens on the Strand, fishing and just hanging out enjoying the beaches and wonderful places Galveston has to offer.

Over the years, our love for Galveston has continued to grow and after a long search we found our house. It's located in the center of the city, only a 5 minute drive to the historic Strand and Seawall and beaches. There are so many things to do. Pure enjoyment for all ages - Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, Saturday evening 'Art Walk,' clean beaches, fun fishing, water sports, ghost tours, restaurants, coffee shops, antiquing and great resale shops. It's about a 30 minute drive to NASA and the Kemah Boardwalk.
