The buzz in Kennebunkport this summer is, once again, the Bush family. They are well loved in these parts. Not only have they had a busy summer of birthday parties and a trip to Maine Medical in Portland, in May the Boston Globe broke the story about a 3,000 square foot “summer cottage” being built for the Jeb Bush family at Walker’s Point just as he commences his presidential campaign:

Jeb Bush, who has a longtime relationship with this seaside town where generations of Bushes have vacationed, is having a house built for him at the family compound on Walker’s Point, with a wraparound porch and expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The home, on a 1.3-acre site assessed by the town at $1.4 million, was initiated for him by his mother and father, who have tried to preserve the family ties to the picturesque property.




With Dallas real estate inventory at an all time low, about the only way you can find listings is by having a savvy agent who is worth their weight in Hip Pockets — that is, homes for sale that are not listed in MLS. (Or, ha ha, reading this blog.) Lookie at this precious brick ranch north of LBJ near George Bush and Preston, Highlands North: It is four bedrooms, three and a half baths, two living areas, two dining areas, sparkling clean swimming pool and a two car attached garage. Completely remodeled and absolutley beautiful on the inside. This home is like unwrapping a present that just keeps on getting better. Is the kitchen all new? You bet your sweet ***. Shoot me an email, I’ll hook you up.
