Manager info

Year Purchased: 1972

Why Hempstead, TX, USA:
This is a family property where we went almost every weekend and summers when I was growing up. We are out of state most of the time now and do not get to visit is as often as we would like so we are opening it up to others to enjoy our serene getaway property.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The property is secluded and offering peace and privacy. It allows you to unwind and forget about the stress and worries of the outside world. Comfy 2+ person quilted hammock.
