The Socialite

The Socialite is named for rich history of the era where women of prominent families had a duty to play hostess in an effort to keep up power and influence in society. One such Galveston socialite was Jane Austin who lived in the estate until 1889 with husband Horace Sloan. This suite has unexpected color combinations, mixing French chic with modern lines. Notable antique wicker nightstands match subtle pieces throughout the room. There is an original clawfoot tub with hand held shower faucet and beautiful curtains that can close for privacy. The floor to ceiling window facing the front of the house opens for guests to walk through onto the large veranda and enjoy the island sun and breeze.
