Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I'm a native Texan from Fort Worth. I currently live in Spring, which is north of Houston.

Why the Owner Chose Lost Bayou (Galveston, TX, USA):
On one of many trips to Galveston we saw this property and envisioned ourselves retiring here. We're not quite there yet, but we love the neighborhood and especially the neighbors, and we enjoy visiting any chance we get.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with the front porches, it's wonderful to sit outside on a cool breezy night.
