Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Brenda was born and raised in Louisiana as a Thibodeaux... Pat was born and raised in Texas as a Castro; thus was born our business, Castreaux, LLC. We are retired Petroleum Landmen. We moved into our home in 2009 and fell in love with the water, wild life and a slower pace of life. We have three furr-kids, Paceaux (pronounced "Paco"), a Shih-tzu; Petite, a Shih-Poo and Peanut, a Yorkie.

Why the Owner Chose Milam, TX, USA:
At the risk of sounding flippant...Why Not? Why not buy a property which can only serve to maintain good health and create an attitude of gratitude! Making the switch from the city to the country was a big change, but the change was all good! On top of that, with a little time and effort we have an apartment which we call La Casita which provides an affordable place for those looking to experience a couple of days or more of pursuing the joy of fishing on Toledo Bend or for simply just getting away...by yourself...or with that special someone!

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Across the street in the green belt we have a family of Bald Eagles that have become part of our neighborhood. Now and then you will see the red fox scurrying into the woods and sometimes at night you can hear the coyotes. And on nights having clear skies you can see the stars that some of us had not seen since childhood. Toledo Bend ...it's beautiful in this part of the country...e'nuff said!
