About the owner: Kevin and Leslie love to restore old homes to their previous glory days! They are both native Texans who grew up in Houston, Kevin is a well-known photojournalist who graduated from UT in 1983. He and Leslie raised their 4 children in the Austin/Lakeway area and love the Texas Hill Country.

Why the Owner Chose Marble Falls, TX, USA:
Kevin and Leslie were drawn to this home for several years, and decided to tackle purchasing and renovating it in 2013. They love the character and location right in the heart of downtown Marble Falls.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with the location! So close to all the Main Street festivals and fun! Crazy about the character of the pine floors, wide moldings, wonderful windows, pocket doors, old-fashioned front porch, beautiful ancient oaks, amazing sunset views of the hill country to the west. Thoroughly modern kitchen with all the bells and whistles, yet vintage flair. Romantic slipper tub in master is perfect for soaking away stress! So many fun things to do in the area: Lake activities are super close, coffee at Main St. Coffee Shop,then shopping on Main Street or enjoy the art galleries and sculptures on Main, take a hike at Inks Lake State Park, pick fresh strawberries at The Sweet Berry Farm 10 min. away, take a wine tour with Hill Country Wine Tours or go antiquing in Burnet, these are just a few of the many activities close by.
