Woodchuck in Bent Tree

According to the Bent Tree grapevine, vigilant neighbors along with Public Safety solved the case of firewood theft from a Bent Tree homeowner’s yard.  That was some great teamwork…well done!  Note – the Bent Tree woodchuck shown in the photo above was not involved in this crime.

Sold

One recent home sale in Bent Tree had an interesting listing description.  The first sentence was “Cute and freshly renovated home perched on top a very, very steep driveway offers cozy living in the desirable Bent Tree subdivision.”  The last sentence was “Please take caution if attempting to drive up the driveway.”

The closing price was $79,500 and Bent Tree Community Properties, Inc. represented the buyer.  If my calculations are correct, BTCPI made $357.75 on that sale.  This was the second home sale involving BTCPI.  Based on calculations, BTCPI probably brought in $1179 on the first transaction.

By the looks of the tire marks in one of the listing photos, the driveway really is a doozy.

“The Quiet World of Bent Tree”

In my opinion, “The Quiet World of Bent Tree” is the perfect tagline for Bent Tree.  It was used in the original marketing campaign and for many years after.  It still seems perfect today.  The header above shows text from a 1970 advertisement.  The clip below is from a 1972 advertisement.

“RUSTIC PERFECTION”

Earlier this year, I included the following statement in one of my posts:  “I do know that if I won the lottery (assuming I ever played the lottery), there is only one home in Bent Tree for which I would pay $900,000 or more.” 

 Well, this is the one I was talking about.  Even though I’m usually not a lottery player, when I saw this home hit the market a few days ago, and because of my earlier post, I tried my luck with the lottery.  I didn’t win, so my favorite house in Bent Tree is still on the market.
