Hi Liz.....I suppose there is a time for all things and while you will miss this beautiful setting, not having to worry about it's upkeep should provide a small silver lining.  Great marketing you rascal ;-)

Hey Gail...

No it's going to be a very big "no worries" on upkeep!  It really was a ton of work to keep that much land looking good, with it being 2 1/2 hours away.  I think we worked a lot more than we played, and now no playing just paying

What a stunning spread Liz. You will be out of the up keep on that home very soon. It doesn't look like it is the type of listing to hang around for long.

Maybe once you sell it you can head out for another diving trip.

I would love nothing more since that has been my passion since 1978.  Unfortunately my lung doctor says no more diving!  That was a hard one to take, but I've got 30+ years of wonderful memories.  Hope you are doing well.  L

Hi Liz,  I have heard you talk about your beautiful lake house near your home in Katy Texas.  You must have some wonderful memories which you will keep even though it is for sale.  Lakefront property is so desirable - with that boat house and the covered patios, sounds like you have it all.  Hope you find a wonderful person to buy your lakefront home - maybe one of those fat cats in Houston?  :)

Hi Dear Liz,  What a great post and a great house.  Hope you sell it quickly.  Someone will be very blessed to get it.  It is so very nice.  Wish I could afford it myself.  Will keep my eyes open for someone wanting a lakehouse with privacy and such beauty.

Hi Liz - what a beautiful property, photos & write-up. When I read the disclaimer at the end, I was hoping it wasn't your personal home, but, after reading the comments, understand that it is. It must take a ton of courage, for sure...on the other hand, I trust that, whereever you go, you will be HOME, and you will continue to reflect all the wonderful qualities around you that made your home so special. All the best to you!

Thanks for all the kind words.  Still has not sold and I just can not understand why!!!!  The market in the greater Houston, Dallas, Waco areas never had the big dips that some of the rest of the country has had.  I've got it priced way under a fair market value this time, so hopefully the right buyer will come along soon....
