Where the Hurricane Ike Effect Still Lingers in League City

Clear Lake is across and up the street from this wedge-lot property in League City’s Glen Cove Park neighborhood off FM 2094 (aka Marina Bay Dr.). Appearing a bit unchanged since Hurricane Ike left its mark in 2008, this 1972 home with small-windowed second floor living was listed “as-is” last week. The market’s rising tide of housing prices seems to have swept through, however, since the asking price is $35,000, up from the $23K paid for it at its previous sale March 2012. Raze or raise and redo? Some of the demo necessary for either option looks to have been started, at least . . .


In its current state, the 1,699 sq.-ft. home has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Curiously, few windows face the water:

Shaggy palm trees heavy with weathered fronds line the corner lot of 4,500 sq. ft. Toward Seminole Dr., (a main road into the neighborhood and located down the street pictured above), aerial maps indicate the “former site” of the Glen Cove Bridge that once spanned the canal feeding into Clear Lake’s south side. The homeowners association Q&A forum mentions no current plans for its replacement.
