Waterfront Home – Engineered Construction

A waterfront property must be designed to withstand the elements, and the structural engineering of this home is just as impressive as its location and design. The house and garage are both above the 100 year flood plain, and built on 20 ft. minimum steel reinforced bell-bottom piers (43 piers under the house and 25 piers under the garage). Both structures have steel roofs and are designed to withstand winds of 125 mph. The South, North and West second floor windows of the house are polycarbonate laminated glass for storm security. All windows in the house and garage are covered with 3M security, storm, and sun protection film. There are also pre-fabricated plywood storm covers for all windows, making it easy to “storm-proof” the home when necessary. The house and garage are protected with a monitored security system.

This is a one-of-a-kind Texas coastal property consisting of about one acre and directly adjacent to Tres Palacios Bay, which is part of West Matagorda Bay. In addition to the private fishing pier, other outdoor features include a 203 ft. water front concrete bulk head, electric sprinkler system, and drive through driveways in the front and rear of the garage. There are also pecan and citrus trees on the property.

Outdoor Activities

The area provides ideal fishing, boating, birding and hunting. The Palacios area is on the The Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, and is world famous among bird lovers for its extreme diversity of bird life, owing to the wealth of protected wetlands nearby. More species of birds are reported here than anywhere else in the United States.

Palacios, known as “The Shrimp Capital of Texas,” is also a paradise for those who love to fish and hunt. Speckled trout, red fish, flounder and black drum are among the many species of fish found in the bay. Waterfowl hunting is also popular in the area. There are 3 well maintained boat ramps in the city which provide an excellent entry into West Matagorda Bay for fishing and boating, within a few minutes’ drive from this waterfront home.

The area is also perfect for outdoor exercise and recreation. Palacios has a 1.5 mile concrete seawall walking path along the bay front for those who enjoy walking or running. A hike & bike trail is currently under consideration, which will soon expand the available options for walkers and cyclists.
