About Sabrine Murphy

Born and raised in San Antonio, I came to Houston over 25 years ago to marry my college sweetheart. Here we have raised three wonderful kids and become true Houstonians. I have a remodeling and design business where I work with people to make their house into a place they love to call home! This place is our second to list on VRBO and we are enjoying meeting all the wonderful people that come to stay! (Our other property is at VRBO Listing #507483 if you would like to take a look.)

Sabrine Murphy purchased this condo in 2014

Why Sabrine Murphy chose Northside

I have furnished this house to feel like your home. I want your stay to be relaxing and enjoyable. We frequently stay at other VRBO properties when we travel and I have made this house into a home for you!

What makes this condo unique

This home is quaint and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle, yet minutes from it, if you so desire. The area is truly full of character and local gems.

Stay and play in the charm of the Heights:best-kept secret for INNER LOOP LIVING on VRBO in Downtown

  • 5 of 5

Stay and play in the charm and beauty of the Heights and find out why people are saying it is the new River Oaks! DeGeorge Place is the best-kept secret for INNER LOOP LIVING on VRBO in Houston. Discover great local restaurants, quaint and eclectic shopping on 19th street, White Oak Bayou and the Hike and Bike Trail, and an 8-minute drive to downtown, the Theatre District, and Houston Ballet.

This is the second VRBO I have booked from Sabrine and she was first-class, just as I had come to expect the first time. Sabrine’s condo provides thoughtful details while merging a beautiful design within the bounds of comfort, especially with the large master, walk-in closets, and high-comfort beds. The close-knit group of neighbors shows pride of ownership within a small-gated complex, nestled into the Norhill neighborhood. Bungalows outside the gate are being grabbed up and revitalized for upwards of $600,000. You can walk one minute up to the neighborhood park, play tennis, take a swim in the pool, or drive a mile up the road to a cross-fit box.

Some of the best restaurants are within a few miles or more away: Liberty Kitchen, Zelco, Ruggles Green, The El, Down House, Catalina Coffee, and Whole Foods.

If you are looking for the comforts and convenience of home, with amazing places to eat, shop, and workout, you have found the right place. I have lived all over the country and have fallen in-love with the charm and beauty of The Heights. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!
