Summary
Offatts bayou, dry lot homes

Driftwood subdivision documents
 
Description
Driftwood Lane became a popular area for residential development in the 1960s, and many modern style homes are built in this area. Homes on the north side of the neighborhood front the bayou. The Galveston Architecture Guidebook describes the Offatts Bayou neighborhood as one area of the city “that manages to look and feel like the 1960s-era suburban periphery of any small Texas city” (Beasley and Fox, 1996). One specific style in this area is the modern “Texas regional” house type, which often has street fronts completely dedicated to the driveway (Beasley and Fox, 1996). (From the 2011 City of Galveston Neighborhood Master Plan)

Driftwood is within walking distance of Parker Elementary school and a short-drive to 61st Street retail establishments, and easy access to Broadway, I-45 and the Seawall.
