General overview

Our home is on the outskirts of Houston, Texas in the Fall Creek community located in Humble. This home is new to us as of 2022; we are still in the process of decorating, but this is how it looks as of March 2022. We have quiet, tree-lined walking paths that meander throughout the neighborhoods, and many lovely parks. Our home is 3 hour drive from our cabin in Wimberley Texas (listing #2528)

The space

Lots of room for cooking, dining, playing games, watching movies/shows. Two large guest bedrooms, one with a private ensuite, one with a 'Jack & Jill' ensuite sharing the tub/shower room with the bunkbed/game room. Large dining/living space w/ fireplace & TV, bar area, gas stove and Viking appliances in the kitchen, formal dining, and library. Off the kitchen there is a hall with the laundry room, mudroom, and access to both garages. There is also a guest half bath. The expansive game room features a TV and bunkbeds as well as a nice view of the pool. Pool and spa are heated, and there's an outdoor living space with grill and sink. The primary bedroom, the one we use, has a king bed and if that's required we can make it ready for you, but for ease of exchanging we prefer to offer you your choice of guest bedrooms. Each has a new queen mattress, pillows and linens dedicated solely to guest use. There is extensive drawer space as well as plenty of closet room.

Guest access

There is small step to get inside. The home is easily accessible to anyone with limited mobility.

Neighbourhood

We JUST MOVED to this home (2022), and are updating a previous listing. We left GREAT neighbors and a lovely neighborhood but are happy to say we have found the same here. Our home is on the outskirts of Houston in the Fall Creek community of Humble. (see link below) We have quiet, tree-lined walking paths, a wonderful park, and an outdoor sport complex with workout equipment and a playground. If you are a golfer, we have two fantastic courses, one of which, the tournament course (former home of the Shell Houston Open) is open to the public. We are also quite near Tour 18, a course designed to recreate 18 particularly interesting holes from famous courses in the U.S.. There are several grocery stores within five miles of our home. There is a small farmers' market at the park every Sunday. We have bicycles you are welcome to use to explore. More about our neighborhood here: https://fallcreekhouston.com More about Fall Creek's Golf Club on Houston tournament course here :http://www.golfclubofhouston.com/tournament_course/ Just north of us is the downtown Humble area featuring a local museum, and plenty of restaurants including Humble City Cafe, the place to go for a very Texas-style meal. If you're interested in nature preserves there are several within 15 minutes of our home. And when you're ready to make the 20 minute drive south into the city, we recommend a stop at Houston's Discovery Green. There is always something fun, interesting, entertaining going on. It's also near the sports parks: Toyota Center (basketball), Minute Maid Park (baseball) and BBVA Compass Stadium, home to our beloved Houston Dynamo (Soccer). We are season ticket holders and have 4 seats for your use if you visit during the season. We have an interesting Museum District with another great outdoor space, Hermann Park featuring a Japanese-style garden, a reflecting pool, kiddie train, the zoo, and Miller Outdoor Theatre. There's the Houston Museum of Natural Science, our outstanding Children's Museum of Houston, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and the Houston Contemporary Museum. Just over in the very trendy Heights District you'll find the Houston Art Car Museum. It houses absolutely outrageous and over the top real, operable cars that have been outfitted as moving sculptures. The annual art car parade happens every spring and is quite delightful! 40 minutes by car and you'll be at Space Center Houston, a combination museum/activity center where you can learn about the space program from its beginnings. The Space Center is near Kemah, which has a boardwalk along the Houston ship channel with shops, amusement-park rides, outdoor fountains for cooling off, and great restaurants. You may want to make a day trip to Galveston where you can walk along the beach, visit Moody Gardens, and enjoy a variety of shops and restaurants. Our new home is quite near the east convergence of two major roadways (Highway 59 and Beltway 8) making it extremely convenient. But note: Houston traffic at rush hour is horrible wherever you're headed. When planning your trip we are HAPPY to advise you how to avoid it! Our home is a little over a 3-hour drive from our cabin in Texas Hill Country, Wimberley Texas. The drive between has interesting stops of its own, too.
