How many of us forget that we're blessed with access to a truly dreamy beach city? An inviting coastal community called Beachtown is nestled on the east side of the gulf; there, bordering East Beach, is this three-story charmer listed for $3.5 million with John Daugherty Realtors.
Just over 4,500 square feet, 2657 E. Seaside Drive sits on an oversized quarter-acre lot and boasts the classic vernacular architecture so beloved in Galveston—that distinctive coastal charm and old-fashioned feel. Renowned architect Steve Mouzon designed the four-bedroom, five-bathroom space, which manages to feel cozy and luxurious all at once. (The elevator helps achieve the latter, to be sure.)
A versatile, open floor plan implores indoor-outdoor living. The crown jewel of the place is the master suite, complete with a private balcony—not to mention the stunning, $3.5 million view that comes with—and drool-worthy bath; it's joined by three guest suites, a gourmet kitchen, a ground-floor loggia, spacious deck, outdoor fireplace, and spacious deck all a quick jaunt from the shore.
Speaking of: East Beach is growing—literally—thanks to coastal accretion, a natural occurrence where sand is deposited from the sea onto the shore, causing it to expand. Of course, the nearby cafés, shops, parks, and landmarks around the island help explain the growing popularity, too.
That's all assuming you ever leave the place, and we wouldn't blame you for staying put. This is the place for summer fun and for serene relaxation, for posting up on the patio at sunset with a spicy margarita and not a care in the world—the very definition of #beachvibes.
