Pottsboro Texas Real Estate For Sale - As many of you know that have read my posts in the past, I feel absolutely blessed to live in the Lake Texoma / Pottsboro area. And for many reasons really -- first off I am able to get up everyday and do what I love - help people find homes. For me, I don't think I would get the kind of joy out of my work that I do if I lived and worked somewhere else. It's nice to be able to point out houses I've sold and to have such a deep knowledge of the area. I am able to help my clients with great confidence because I know in my heart that I am extremely "in the know" about Pottsboro.
Second- living here makes you feel like you're on vacation nearly year round (I did not feel like I was on vacation during the stint where our little piece of paradise was a frozen pond - but hey, that doesn't happen very often)... Getting up in the morning, making my coffee, taking my laptop outside to check my emails - I get to look out over the water... absolutely amazing. How could I not love this?
We also have wonderful schools. While I do not have any children in school (and I'm assuming Niko won't be going anytime soon - he's a dog afterall) it's great to know that I can safely tell those looking to make the move to Texoma full-time - that Pottsboro ISD is indeed a great school with awesome teachers!
It would be nice to have a larger array of restaurants to choose from - but if you really dig deep you'll find there are quite a few spots to eat. The newest restaurant in town that has had rave reviews is Napoli's Italian Restaurant - they have a cool bar area, great food and it's affordable. De Happy Cajun is another great spot. They have awesome cajun food as well as american food and the service is great!
The outdoor opportunities are a huge draw to Lake Texoma! Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, boating, jet-skiing, horseback riding, golfing, camping, riding scooters....there truly is something for every personality type. If the outdoors aren't your thing there's also the spa at Tanglewood to refresh your mind and body or shopping nearby in Sherman.
I think more than anything - I love the people in this area. When I drive home after being at work all day - I bet there is at least 10 times I get a wave from someone. It's a friendly town where everyone knows your name. Hey - we could be a country song! :-)
So if you're looking for a small town with a big personality - here is a list of areas in Pottsboro that you might want to consider:
Tanglewood - well known for it's beautiful tree lined streets, hills and golf course, Tanglewood is nearly a city all by itself!
Russwood - some of the best views on Lake Texoma!
Simmons Shores - this area is the first subdivision on the right side as you go up the peninsula that has access to the lake. There is a boat ramp, community pool and alot of great people that live in this area. Bring your golf cart because you'll want to ride up and down the streets talking to your neighbors!
If you're looking to live in town, close to schools and shopping - here is a list of homes that are "In-Town".
