Summertime....And the Living is Easy in Country Place Subdivision

A buyer called me a couple of months ago and described what he and his wife were looking for.  He wanted a home in a neighborhood with lots of trees on an acre or two, close to a lake, but not too far from Tyler, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, around 3,000 square feet, Whitehouse schools....I immediately thought "COUNTRY PLACE"!

Country Place, which is located off of FM 346 between Hwy 69 and Paluxy Drive,  is the epitomy of East Texas living with rolling hills, trees, lakes,  and  lot sizes of a couple of acres or more.  Just a few short miles from Tyler, Country place affords its residents the privilege of  experiencing a peaceful, quiet, laid back country lifestyle without feeling deprived of all Tyler has to offer.
For more information about the wonderful Country Place community, here's a link:

I've sold several Country Place homes over the last 10 years, including this wonderfully rustic family home located at 19361 Lakeshore Drive.  The young family that purchased it back in 2008 are moving to Oklahoma for job related reasons.  With two young sons, this home was a perfect fit for their family.  They love their neighborhood with its many trees, lakes, and peaceful natural setting where their boys can play and explore, and where deer can often be spotted. This great home is now once again for sale and  is ready to welcome a new family to Country Place.

Fish, read a book, or just sit and think...This beautiful setting allows you to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life with it's stress and trouble!

So, what did my shoes look like today?  I wore my camo never know when you will need to camoflage yourself to spy on one of those Country Place deer!
