About 1616 Driftwood Lane, Galveston, TX 77551

Incredible opportunity to own a one-story on over a 1/2 acre home on Offats Bayou. A Classic Mediterranean Villa, this home was designed with commercial grade building standards that included a 2 1/2 foot foundation! The open space floor plan has a marble floored den, 2 wall areas made of imported marble bricks, exterior imported marble brick pillars which surround the house & a roof edge with original design of solid copper showcasing the quality of construction. The massive living areas throughout, with views of Offats Bayou, allow for entertaining on a grand scale. Approximately 1/5 of the home was designed for live-in help, most recently converted to 2 study areas. The kitchen is a chef's dream with Viking appliances, 2 separate sink areas on an extensive work island, custom cabinets galore + a large seating area with fireplace & Bayou views. The back yard has mature foliage, a large pool and plenty of space for outdoor entertaining.
