Live in Brenham-Commute to Houston

Why wait until you retire to live the dream? We all have that fantasy of moving to the country and sitting on a porch with friends and family sipping on a glass of wine and watching the sun set. We lived in big cities all of our lives and made the move three years ago and have never looked back. You will need a big enough place for friends to come visit and after three years, this has not slowed down for us so do keep that in mind even if you are empty nesters. Property Photo

One of the best places to live in Texas is Brenham in Washington County and we have some beautiful homes available that just might fit your wish list.  This town has so much to offer and if you work in the Energy Corridor since 99 opened up you can get to work in under an hour.  This gorgeous country chic home

on just over an acre might be just what you are looking for. It is offered under the appraised value and you would never find the quality, size and parcel at a price like this in Houston. If you are going to spend an hour in the car driving to work, wouldn’t you rather look at cows, horses and hay for half of your drive?
