About Sabrine Murphy

Born and raised in San Antonio, I came to Houston over 25 years ago to marry my college sweetheart. Here we have raised three wonderful kids and become true Houstonians. I have a remodeling and design business where I work with people to make their house into a place they love to call home!

Sabrine Murphy purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Sabrine Murphy chose Houston

I have furnished this house to feel like your home. I want your stay to be relaxing and enjoyable. Several years ago my Dad came from San Antonio to start treatment at MD Anderson. At the end of a long day, after going through test after test, all he wanted to do was be home. With that in mind, I have made this house into a home for you!

What makes this townhome unique

This home is quaint and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle. The interior atrium lets the sun shine in and at night you can see the moon and stars.

  • 5 of 5

This town home was absolutely perfect as a family "base" while we endured the extended hospitalization of a family member.

Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, satellite tv and internet, and the ultimate luxury of a washer/dryer at our disposal.

Quiet, neighborly setting; close to grocery stores, medical district, book stores, zoo and museums. Truly a sanctuary.

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat renters and absolutely love our stays at this shaded vacation rental in Bellaire. It is a perfect location for getting around anywhere in Houston within a matter of minutes. Highway 59 is just a few blocks away in one direction and the 610 Loop is just a couple of blocks in another, allowing access to the Galleria, the medical center, and downtown Houston in no time.

Great Gem in Bellaire!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect find for us. The location is near the Galleria and easy access to Hwy 59 and Loop 610. It is a lovely, quiet neighborhood with many friendly neighbors walking around. Although we live near here, we still discovered new restaurants to try. Rossa's was exceptional. I really liked being able to park right at the back door. It was easy to bring in our suitcases and groceries. We needed a place to stay while our floors were being refinished. Our daughter sat in the indoor patio to study. She loved it. I would highly recommend Palmetto Place!
