Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Being big city transplants, we have lived in Chappell Hill since 2002. Chappell Hill was the birthplace of my mother and grandparents on a small farm. I visited the area many times as a child after moving to Houston. My wife is a retired first grade school teacher having retired from the Brenham ISD.

Why the Owner Chose Chappell Hill, TX, USA:
This property is adjacent to our existing home. We bought it in 2014 and remodeled the house to make it a short vacation rental. The previous owner was one of the original land owners in the development, whose name was, what else but Jayne. We wanted to preserve the property in her name.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views and rolling hills. This property is very secluded and peaceful. The house has a country charm which you have to experience. If you've been to Chappell Hill before you'll know what we mean about the area; if you haven't then you're in for a treat.
