Bush's first Texas home for sale

September 07, 2008|Peter Viles

The Countdown to Crawford blog reports that the Midland, Texas, home once owned by George W. and Laura Bush is for sale, listed for $239,000. Three bedrooms, two baths, 2,406 square feet.

"An enterprising Realtor in Midland, Texas, has come up with a new way to advertise a listing in West Texas.

"She's letting prospective customers know that the property for sale was the first home of Laura and George Bush, where the couple started their married life together. Listed for $239,900, the home at 1405 W. Golf Course Road has 2,406 square feet and was built in 1976, one year before the Bushes moved in.

"With light, airy spaces and a mostly concrete back patio ('low maintenance yard' is how Realtor Ruth Young puts it), the home is where the couple had their daughters (1981) and the future president ran for Congress, and lost, in 1978. It still boasts Laura Bush's original drapes, and offers buyers a chance to cook on Laura Bush's original cooktop stove."
