Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Lived in Crystal Beach since 2004.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach, Bolivar Peninsula, TX, USA:
We lived at 3209 Castle Drive for nine years. Our son built a new house for us using the exact same floor plan that we had loved for nearly a decade. Instead of selling the property at 3209, we opted for keeping it and using it as a rental, retaining our interest in the neighborhood and love for the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Chillin' the Most has a cathedral ceiling and a huge front deck from which the entire neighborhood can be seen.
