Pointe West - Homes & Condos
Pointe West straddles FM 3005 on the far western tip of Galveston Island, next to the San Luis Pass Bridge. Ground was broken in 2006 for this master planned community which encompasses some 1,000 acres. Large 3-story multi-family condos dominate both the beach and the bay sides and there are smaller cottages averaging 1,650-1,850 square feet scattered throughout both areas. The architecture is traditional for the most part, with clapboard siding, white trim and breezy porches. Amenities are more plentiful here than in most West End subdivisions and include two pools, a fitness center, fishing pier, playground, a clubhouse and restaurant. There is abundant open space, and walking, biking and golf cart paths wind and weave through the neighborhood. Since it is more than 20 miles to the heart of Galveston, some prefer to travel to and from Pointe West via the Bluewater Highway through Brazoria County instead of I-45 through Galveston, especially on busy summer weekends. Vacation rentals are permitted, and Pointe West has a large selection of bay and beach houses for rent in Galveston. Buyers seeking houses for sale in Galveston will find that Pointe West homes typically range in price from the $250,000s to over a million dollars, and condos generally sell form $150,000s to the $300,000s. Homesites – from the bay to the beach – range from $8,000 to $175,000, depending on the location.
