Step into the big, beautiful kitchen. The ceilings are really tall (don't know the exact height). Check out the cabinets....they are original
This is a small 1/2 bath off the kitchen. The stained glasses is original to the house...in person, its a vibrant purple, green and gold! Check out the deep, crackled sink....
I love the fun little touches. Check out the "girl" in the corner of the stair landing. And check out the winding, beauty of the stairs.
And more stained glass on the next stair landing, heading to the third floor! This place is HUGE!
Thank goodness the big oak tree you see out of this stained glass survived and will NOT be cut down! YEAH!!
On to the backyard.....a Carriage House that is tiny but cute. A Houstonian leases the place and comes down on the weekends.
This is me and my long time friend James. He's one of the owners of the home and has absolutely wonderful taste and can do much of the work himself. What a skill, huh?
Here's another view of the back yard. Most of the plants had to be replaced and the soil amended because of sea water. Check out the cool walkways he and Jody created out of the old bricks they found through out the property. I'm always amazed at their ingenuity! THEY ROCK!
Since I figured you might want to see more of their neighborhood, I took some pictures on my way out. Get ready to ooooohhhhh and awwwwwww.....they are stunning. Galveston has come a long way since Ike but there are still tarps on roofs, trees needing to be cut down, etc., but "they've come a long way baby". Looking good!!!!
