Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I grew up in Post, Texas and my husband grew up in Whitney, Tx. We both graduated from Texas Tech University, and we now reside in Gail, Texas, where my husband is a science teacher of 23 years. I am an RN, and I have worked at Covenant Medical Center and Grace. We have 3 daughters, and stay very busy with them. I have owned this home for 12 years, and have always had is as rental property. However, we have stayed at VRBOs in the past, and decided to make this home one. We TOTALLY remodeled this home this summer: new paint, carpet, appliances, bathrooms, patio in backyard. I love to decorate, and since we will be staying there at times, I made it into our 2nd home with things I love and enjoy to make it cozy.

Why the Owner Chose Lubbock, TX, USA:
My oldest daughter and I lived in this house after my divorce. She attended kindergarten at the nearby elementary school just a few blocks down the road. Super quiet neighborhood, and great area to walk or just minutes from walking park with playground. We love the area since it is so convenient to Texas Tech, shopping, restaurants, park, gym, and easy to get to I-20 to come back home to Gail, Tx.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will LOVE the back patio...sit outside in the mornings with your cup of coffee or turn the twinkle lights on in the evening and just relax as you listen to the sound of a beautiful fountain. I have lots of gorgeous flowers blooming in pots right now, so it is the perfect place to escape to for a girls' weekend, coffee in the morning on a game day, roast marshmallows over the fire pit for your college kids your in town to visit. (Kids never get to old to roast marshmallows!!) This is my favorite part of our home. And my 2nd favorite part is the water shower you will ever take!!
