Popular single-story home as well as family home with large backyard available!
Knock off the icicles and let the sun shine – Spring on Galveston Island is here! The big Mardi Gras weekend ushers in an exciting time on Galveston Island! And with the arrival of the new season, Evia is ready to welcome new homeowners with the completion of the first homes in the Curiosity Cove Collection!
The popular single-story Finley and spacious Saint Claire offer a charming setting along Curiosity Cove with spacious front porch spaces and the design characteristics that buyers have come to expect in Evia – owners will experience the charm and character of a historic home while enjoying the conveniences and efficiencies in a new home. So, buyers will have a “new ‘old home!” These homes will be ready for immediate occupancy in March and April so the new owners can begin to enjoy an island lifestyle!
Evia is a tribute to the historic neighborhoods throughout Galveston Island and other historic cities like New Orleans, Charleston and Savannah. Classical, Victorian and Craftsman architectural styles are featured throughout Evia with community elements that beckon people to become neighbors in this island community. The Village Pool and Cabana as well as Curiosity Cove, the children’s park, incorporates the traditional sense of “neighborhood” for those who live in and visit Evia. With the spring warmth and fresh blossoms on the flowers throughout the community, it is the ideal time to get out and about in Evia’s natural setting.
Although Evia offers many attractive attributes, it will always be known as the only new community that did not sustain any flood water during Hurricane Ike due to Evia’s protection by the Seawall and the elevation of the community.
“This is a perfect time to buy a new home in Evia,” comments Billy Sullivan, one of the Evia developers. “We were so thankful to have minimal damage and no flooding during the hurricane a few years ago so new owners will know that the Seawall protection and planning for the community were done with their investment in mind. Although that is important to consider, there is no place on Galveston Island that can offer the lifestyle that we have in Evia.”
Evia enjoys a wonderful partnership with The House Company, Joe Tramonte Realty and Sand N Sea Properties. There are a variety of homes available in the community, with sizes ranging from 2,000 square feet all the way to 4,000 square feet. All of the homes are ready for any new owners to enjoy for the spring and summer season!
In addition to the single-family homes, the Town Cottages (townhomes) in Evia are situated with spectacular views of The Moody Gardens Golf Course. Owners enjoy the convenience of a “maintenance-free home” where the association cares for everything on the exterior of the home, including the required property, flood and windstorm insurance. The homes are between 2,000 and 2,300 and offer 3 bedrooms with a ground-floor master suite and two-car garage with private back or side yards.
Sugar Bean Coffee and Cream , the neighborhood coffee house and gelato café, can be found in the Village Center and is open daily. It offers a variety of coffees, teas, fruit smoothies, authentic Italian gelato, beer and wine and fresh-baked breakfast items! In addition, Sugar Bean is available for private events such as weddings or baby showers, group training and meetings. Sugar Bean Coffee and Cream can be reached at 409-974-4473.
