About the property

5 Bedroom, 5 Bath with amazing pool and outdoor living area!

Hill Country luxury in the heart of town. Relaxation, comfort and amenities - when you stay at the H.W. Bush House you will come home to an inviting space that you and your guests will love at first sight. From the vaulted, cedar beamed ceilings as you walk through the front door to the travertine floor found throughout, the home's flowing floor-plan and attention to detail will set the stage for a memorable stay. As you move to the rear of the H.W. Bush House you will pass through a beautiful gourmet kitchen with custom kitchen cabinets and granite top eating bar. High-end stainless steel appliances, recessed lighting and beautiful tile backsplash complete the atmosphere. The flowing design continues as the kitchen opens into the adjacent media room with 60 inch television and surround sound, perfect for gameday viewing or a quiet movie night. Double french doors lead to the outdoor living area with its beautiful stone fireplace and 65 inch outdoor television mounted above the mantle. The television swivels for viewing by guests while splashing in the salt-water pool or soaking in the adjacent heated spa and the tv can be swiveled back for viewing while barbecuing in the outdoor kitchen. Once you are ready, take an invigorating dip in the large pool nestled among the mature oak trees of your secluded garden oasis. How to top the perfect evening off? With a soak in the hot tub, ice-cold beverage in hand, and your favorite tunes on the stereo as you enjoy the conclusion of another day in your slice of paradise!

Sleeping accommodations at the H.W. Bush House are equally well thought out and designed with our guests comfort and convenience in mind. With 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms the home can accommodate up to a maximum of 12 guests overnight. Four of the five bedrooms are suites with attached private baths, the fifth bedroom features two sets of bunkbeds that will accommodate up to eight younger guests. The bath for the bunkroom is across the hall and is also the bath that serves the common areas of the home. All bedrooms feature wall mounted 42 inch televisions and individual climate controls, so set the thermostat to whatever is comfortable to you personally in your individual suite. The Bush House also features luxurious high-thread count all cotton bedding. At the front of the house a bedroom suite with enhanced accessibility has been ideally located for guests who might need a little more space for a chair or walker in either the bedroom or bathroom. The rear most suite, which is almost everyone's favorite, features a set of french doors that open onto the outdoor living area and pool - what's not to love about morning coffee waiting for you poolside just outside your door?

About Walter Cox

Class of '91. Walt is a former Merchant Marine Officer and marine scientist. Raised in Texas, Walt lived in Alaska for several years while working in the marine sciences before returning to College Station in 2003. He and his daughter live in south College Station and are passionate fans of both the Fightin' Texas Aggies and girl's fastpitch softball! On weekends, they are likely to be found somewhere on the red dirt of a central Texas softball field.

Walter Cox purchased this house in 1981

Why Walter Cox chose College Station

Our family history includes a long-standing connection with Texas A&M University. Our family matriarch, my mom, received her doctorate from A&M in the early 1980's as a single mother raising three kids. That she managed all of that amazes me to this day!

My brother, sister and I all attended Texas A&M in due time - with my brother and I both receiving our bachelors degrees there. My sister, the black sheep of the family, transferred after her sophomore year and received her bachelors degree from UT before going on to Berkley and the University of Chicago for graduate school. Our family tree is ripe with uncles and cousins who attended A&M and almost all my closest friends wear the ring. So, I guess it seems inevitable in some ways that our family would wind up with a house that sits on the doorstep of Texas A&M.

During the time that we have owned the H.W. Bush House it has served our family in a variety of roles; as our primary home for a time, as student housing for my brother and I when we were younger and more recently as a home to a family that rented the house and raised five children there.

Out of my thirty plus year history with the H.W. Bush House one of my most enduring memories was of the 'Blizzard' that hit College Station back in the early 80's. It shut the city down and the three of us, my brother, sister and I, wound up making a giant snowman out in the front yard - we rolled three snowballs up and down Bush Avenue (though the street was named Jersey at the time) to get them big enough to form our snowman and then finished him off with a carrot for the nose. To this day I can picture that snowman sitting in front of the house with snowball tracks criss-crossing up and down the street.

What makes this house unique

Outstanding location and amenities. The H.W. Bush House has been in our family for over three decades. In early 2014 our family decided to do a complete rebuild of the property with the goal of creating the premiere short-term rental/ gameday property in Aggieland. The house was gutted to the studs and reconfigured as a 5 bedroom, 5 bath home with features specifically designed to enhance its new role as a short-term and game day rental home. We replaced all mechanicals (wiring, plumbing, heating and cooling), replaced the 55 year old windows with new double pane high efficiency vinyl windows to reduce noise and increase the energy efficiency of the property and we heavily insulated the home for both thermal and acoustic transmission (the house was originally built in 1960 and had absolutely no insulation in the walls or attic, as a freshman in high school I installed what little insulation their was in the house - up in the attic, at the stern insistence of my mother!).

Additionally, we extensively remodeled the exterior of the home, adding a beautiful cedar beamed porch and a new Austin stone facade across the front of the house. But the most dramatic transformation took place at the rear of the property where we installed a gorgeous new pool / spa and a 750 square foot covered living area with gas fireplace and outdoor kitchen. It is truly a sliver of paradise in the middle of the city!

We have striven to redevelop the H.W. House as the premiere rental of its kind in the Bryan-College Station area. It is suitable for gameday rentals and short term stays of all kinds - business trips, family reunions, anniversaries, birthday celebrations and even small, intimate weddings. I hope you will enjoy your stay in our former family homestead, and that you will come to view it as your new home-away-from-home in Aggieland

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a great stay in this beautiful house! We really enjoyed the pool, spa and outdoor living area. We are so glad we found this place and I will definitely be looking into coming back for a game weekend in the future.

Better than home!

  • 5 of 5

Parking for 4 vehicles was convenient. Lighted decorated Christmas tree when we entered the living room was such a warm touch. All the comforts of home but higher quality sheets than I put on my kids beds (haha). SPA was amazing, we used it every night, such a treat to have the outdoor fireplace and TV there to amuse us.

This is just a great house for a large family to be together but still have privacy. We really felt relaxed and on vacation! Kitchen was fully stocked including condiments and spices from past guests (take a little, leave a little) which made cooking easy and cleanup was a breeze with laundry facility and cleaning supplies easily available.

It kind of felt like I was staying at a relatives house, not a rental. Cannot say enough about how convenient this house was compared to past experiences with hotels and time share properties which have bare essentials when you show up.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for December graduation. Relatives from Rhode Island to Florida gathered to celebrate our daughter's accomplishment. There was plenty of room for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. We especially enjoyed the fact that each bedroom has its own bath.

The outdoor living space was perfect for entertaining a few friends before the ceremony and the convenient location made getting to and from Reed Arena stress-free.

We would recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to host a large or small group for a few days in Aggieland.

Great family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and had a great location!! Each bedroom has its own bath and were well appointed. The outdoor area was really nice for a large group.

The homeowner was responsive when asked questions.

We we're so pleased with our choice, it was well worth a little extra for the difference in quality of the home.

Thank you VRBO and Walter Cox for allowing our extended family to enjoy a great weekend. MUCH better than a hotel.

Perfect

My son was getting married in College Station and I wanted to find somewhere that we could easily come and go from. This was perfect. Lots of beds and lots of showers, it was just what we needed! I would highly recommend this place.

Great place for family!

  • 5 of 5

The house had plenty of room for our family of 6 adults, plus another adult and 2 children on one night. The location is close to all kinds of restaurants and shopping. It was great that it is all on one level and had two walk-in showers. Inside was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the outdoor space and pool! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

The H.W. Bush House is in the center of where you want to be! Across the street from the world class Texas A&M University, the Bush House fronts onto the Texas A&M golf course and offers views of Kyle field from the front yard.

Football games and tailgating are walkable (less than a mile). The location is perfect for gameday renters as well as business and family travelers seeking a home-away-from-home. The H.W. Bush house is centrally located to the sports complexes in Bryan-college Station, making it an excellent choice for team rentals where several groups would like to stay together for a tournament.
