Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : June 2010

Lake Livingston's Beauty Took My Breath Again Today!

I showed seven homes around Lake Livingston today to a new set of Clients. They also love the lake as I do but have never lived there. They spend almost every weekend boating on our lake and in the creeks and the Trinity River and are simply in love.Skiing on the Lake!

We had a ball together exploring the homes along the water that fit into their price range. They own a very large speed boat so a boat lift with a pier is very important to them.

The water level is also important so they can come and go even if the Lake is a bit low. One of the great things about Lake Livingston is that it is man made and governed by the Trinity River Authority Dam that helps the water level remain at the optimum level even during potential flooding times.

When the water rises it is manually released to flow Southward and help the Rice Farmers in the Southern parts of Texas.

 

 

 

Now we're talking win-win.Heron by Deb Brooks

The South end of the lake is the deepest and most active area of the total body of water. This is where the Dam is found and many wide open water areas.

In this part of the lake it is imperative that if you live right on the water that you have a solid bulkhead.

The water kicks up as if it were a part of the ocean and the bulkhead takes a beating.

Be aware that this end of the lake is the most dangerous. Higher waves, heavier currants and stronger storms will be a part of your life.

If you are wanting the open look of the ocean then this is where you want to be! Please just take the necessary precautions when boating or when children are involved.

Now, the North end of the lake is the calmer, easier boating area of our lake. The Trinity River is at the mouth of the Lake Livingston basin and provides all the fresh water coming from North Texas and Dallas.

When Dallas gets rain ... watch out! Here it comes! The river tends to overflow its banks in the area where it meets the lake but most homes and Real Estate that is improved lies on a higher piece of land.

 

 

White Rock by Deb Brooks

 

 

 

Lake Livingston supplies many creeks that spin off from the main lake, mostly in the Northern end.

These creeks make fantastic boating areas and are also great for fishing. White Rock Creek is one of my favorites!

The creek runs deep and wide. The banks are bluffs that are speckled with trees and are gleaming with white rock!

This is by far one of the most beautiful areas on the lake.

Perfect for skiing, boating, tubing, jet skiing and fishing, the North end of Lake Livingston must not be overlooked.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don't let another summer get by you without shopping for your Lake House Getaway.
