Lake Livingston Real Estate is becoming more and more desirable for its waterfront property due to its natural beauty, tranquil lifestyle, and much more attractive pricing. The lake is the second largest lake located totally within the State of Texas, covering an area of 93,000 acres, with over 450 miles of shoreline that extends into 4 different counties that include Polk, Walker, San Jacinto, and Trinity County.
As a result, unlike Lake Conroe and Lake Houston, or even Galveston, Lake Livingston is never crowded. Both of the lakes are substantially smaller than Livingston, and are more developed , so they are naturally more crowded for boating, affecting traffic on and off the water, views, and noise, if what you want is the freedom to move around in a more peaceful setting. In addition, weather threats from the gulf coast are causing more people to relocate to Lake Livingston from the Texas coast.
But if you’re looking for a more ‘suburban’ lake with more restaurants, the other two lakes have more of that, which has also resulted in prices being 2 to 3 times higher per foot of water frontage, or the size of the home you get under normal market conditions.
If you’re looking for a second home, however, you won’t find better value than at Livingston. Only 70 miles north of Houston, it is accessable via I-45 or Hwy 59, making it easy to get away from it all on the weekends. Constructed across the Trinity River, it is 39 miles long and 7 miles wide at its greatest width, with an average lake depth of 23 feet, and a maximum depth of 90 feet, making it great for fishing, swimming, boating, skiing, and camping. And, unlike other lakes, Livingston is kept at a constant level by the Trinity River Authority.
So, whether you need to sell your property, or are looking for the right lake location, give us a call today, and we will immediately get to work for you.
