About Greg Philpott

Having restored a number of historic properties, we look forward to sharing charming Galveston Island with you. After living here for 15 years, we still thoroughly enjoy the unique and compelling atmosphere. We enjoy interesting shops, bars, eateries, live music and theater and some of the most spectacular sunrises. A simple morning or evening walk on the beach or dolphin watching in the harbor, we easily create enjoyable moments everyday.

Greg Philpott purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Greg Philpott chose Galveston

Built shortly after the Great Storm of 1900 in 1909, along with the identical Twin Sister house right next door. Both cottages have been lovingly restored to return their original charming splendor, while adding every modern convenience. Surrounded by numerous historical properties and views of magnificent Sacred Heart Catholic Church, and even a glimpse of the Gulf of Mexico..

What makes this cottage unique

Get away from it all, yet still be in the middle of everything!
