Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are empty nesters with time on our hands! We met in Dallas in 1978 at Northway Baptist Church, married in 1981, and have a son in college and a married daughter in Chicago. We have owned our own business in Plano since 1983. Entertaining in our home is one of our favorite things to do!

Why the Owner Chose Grand Saline, TX, USA:
We had been looking for over a year for a weekend place. When we found this house in the fall of 2013 we got so excited! The fact that it is an hour from Dallas was a plus. And it's in beautiful East Texas near wonderful people and shopping.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
8 minutes from First Monday Trade Days 25 minutes from amazing shopping in Mineola Back porch with views of nothing but trees! Neighbors have horses that come to the fence many mornings and we hear the cows gossiping on the land behind us.
