Property description

This Galveston beach bungalow style house was built in the 1930’s and sometime during the 1940’s it was divided up into several 1 bedroom ‘shotgun’ style apartments.

The house now has three beautiful but distinctly different apartments, each one took on their own personality and feel as we restored and furnished them.

We referred to apartment #2 as 'Hemisphere Dreamer'
Hemisphere Dreamer has amazing natural lighting and faces the seawall so it gets the wonderful sea breezes. The front porch is the perfect place to have a morning coffee as you watch the sunrise over the water or relax in the cool evening breeze with a cocktail or lemon aid. You may find you get so relaxed that you don’t really want to drive anywhere for dinner, which is no problem, because there are several restaurants and bars and the Pleasure Pier within walking distance.

You will find the apartment perfectly located for all the island’s activities. A block away is the Historic Pleasure Pier, beach and seawall, and since you can see the water from the porch you will know right away if you should take your surf board or fishing pole. In the opposite direction, downtown is less than 2 miles away. It’s a healthy walk or pleasant bike ride through the beautiful Silk Stocking district. In my opinion, the best way to view island’s amazing houses and buildings is on your bike, so bring it along!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Restoring this house over the last 10 years has been a labor of love. We were almost finished with the restorations when Hurricane Ike set us back a few steps with flooding and a fire. After the shock of the hurricane wore off we saw that it was actually a blessing in disguise. We have since put in all new plumbing, electrical and we even have it set up with Wi-Fi! In an attempt to keep the 1930’s feel of the house we have restored as much of the original hardware, interior doors, wood floors, and tile as possible.
