This lovely couple called me two or three weeks ago to get a date on the books for me to come photograph their waterfront Rockport real estate so they could try to market it themselves. After a few rain delays we were finally able to follow through with the listing photos last week. This was the first real estate listing I’ve had in the Bahia Bay subdivision outside of Rockport – and it’s quite a nice, quiet area!
Over the phone consultation with the Remmerts, I described a few of the things that I usually prefer (mainly window treatments that work and all lightbulbs operational). While I was able to view their home on Google Maps and Street View to help determine the best time of day to being shooting, I really didn’t know what to expect of the home, layout, or subdivision. Of course, this home is a beautiful specimen that has been well maintained (especially for waterfront real estate) and the photos practically took themselves. This home is located on the fingertip and of course has water on two sides of the property. It’s also located at the very end of the Bahia Bay subdivision, which means it’s a very quiet street. A lush, green yard leads to a covered front porch with enough room for several seats and a porch swing.
When you enter the home, there is a very large formal living and dining space complete with fireplace and view of the backyard and canal. There is an open staircase that leads to the three additional upstairs bedrooms, all of which are large and spacious. The largest upstairs bedroom could even function as an upstairs master bedroom with it’s own bath en suite, as well as one of the most coveted spaces in the entire house – the reading nook that looks east out over the canal. Downstairs is a bedroom that currently functions as the master bedroom, and is spacious as well, with a large bathroom featuring dual vanities, a free standing soaking tub, and stand up shower, as well as a dream of a closet.
The kitchen is situated in the middle of the home and has enough counter space for whatever holiday cooking you’re doing. It formerly looked out onto the backyard, but has since been enveloped by a large family room add on and breezeway. The add on family room is cavernous with it’s cathedral ceilings and white wood decking visible. Plenty of natural light spill in throughout the day, and since the rear of the home faces north, very little direct sunlight beams in. Off the family room is a hobby / craft / art studio that has a picture window looking out on the water-neighborhood canal. Even though this home is situated on a canal, it has a giant backyard with water level concrete dock on two sides. Lots of established landscaping, native flowering plants, and greenspace helps complete the picturesque views no matter where you are enjoying the outdoors.
