Open, cozy, homely bungalow. Fenced in private garden with pool surrounded by palm trees and flowering bushes. Situated in Kingwood "The living Forest", 20 minutes from IAH, 10 min Lone Star College, 20 min Gran Texas Theme Park (open 2020). Kingwood is a safe, quiet community at Lake Houston. Rich, old vegetation. Greenbelts, restaurants and shopping centers. Deerbrook mall 10 min away. Wonderful surroundings for relaxation after a hard day at work or for family fun at the pool (not heated).
Owner is European, which mirrors in the intimacy of the house: All bedrooms have the soft cedar floor of a church from 1910. Kitchen is fully equipped with convection multi rack oven, dishwasher and croc-pot. Quality cutlery, dishes and glasses. Coffee and tea for the first days. Beds comfortable with duvets and nice linen. Spacious front yard and private garden in the back. Easy access from freeway, but far enough away to be quiet.
Kingwood is a lovely, safe, calm community with nature all around. Hike or bike miles of green-belts or go for a picnic under shady trees at the side of Lake Houston. Visit the horse park with your kids - my gran-kids love it - on the way they feed turtles in the turtle-pond. A water-park is already open within what will be the biggest adventure park in Texas, planned to open 2020. If you like city-life, drive to downtown Houston with museums, sport-arenas, theaters and nightlife. Then come back home, away from the stress and noise of the city. Big community pool open during summer-season.
