Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: This property has been in our family since 1966. My parents built the house in 1974 and loved the woods and river for many years. We as a family spent many 4th of Julys on the Middle Bosque River camping and swimming. My father could be heard saying late on a summer afternoon, 'Let's go to 'the Bosque' when it was time to go cool off in the Middle Bosque River after a long hot day of work. That's how our name began. So share in the pleasure and fun with us and come for a visit at 'The Bosque'.

Why the Owner Chose Crawford, TX, USA:
We bought the family land in 2014 and began a total remodel of the house and surrounding areas. It's been a lot of work but also a lot of fun and satisfaction.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A real family home to be used for weekends or vacation where you and your family can feel at home and enjoy your time at 'The Bosque'. You can walk in the woods, or to the river, fish and just enjoy the changing leaves as you relax and unwind at 'The Bosque'.
