Let's begin our tour of 1135 Ashland St. - an incredible custom home and contributing structure in the Houston Heights West Historic District.
Right at the doorstep, a plaque declaring the 92 year history of this property! Talk about bragging rights.
A view of the front porch, offering a first glance into the open concept living space of the main floor.
A brick-paved pathway leads you to the front door, offset by a spacious porch for evening conversations, saying hi to your sweet neighbors, or watching the kids (fur or human) play.
Entry through the front door reveals a quaint formal living area. This is in the original portion of the 1925 bungalow.
Just as you enter, glass paneled doors welcome you to the study. This room is also one of the bonus rooms in the house and can be easily converted into a guest with en suite.
Luxurious fittings and finishes for the main floor bath. Spa-like with hand laid tile design, silver-footed deep soaking tub. Access either through the heart of the home or the office.
The spacious and open formal dining room is next in the progression from the front door. So many layout possibilities! This room can be used as the TV or play area, an entertainment space, and more! This space is also part of the original bungalow.
Enter the family living area to find on one side, a breakfast corner and desk nook (and some serious storage)...
... and on the other side, a sitting area by a craftsman style gas-log fireplace with marble surround. This whole home is simply perfect for anyone who likes to entertain, that has a large family, or just likes room to stretch out!
View of the marvelous eat-in kitchen any chef would enjoy! The appliances alone boast a 5-figure price tag. Through the left door, you'll find a pantry with a size rivaling a Manhattan apartment. Its really amazing.
A Viking professional 48" range with 8 burners and double ovens for effortless holiday meal prep...
.... a Dacor fridge and a built-in dishwasher on the right...
... a pull-out microwave, wine cooler and an additional sink with garbage disposal are among other impressive features! I'm sure you've noticed the floors - all oak.
Here is the spacious master bedroom. Ten foot ceilings throughout the house. The "small" closet connected has built in drawers and shelves, eliminating the need for a dresser in the room.
Opulent finishes fit for royalty in the en-suite. Lowered marble counter to sit and get ready for your day (or night!), picture window over the tub, and dressing room are just a few features.
Claw foot tub and a large shower stall with matching tile inlays. Note that the tile in this house - with the exception of backsplash in the kitchen - are all hand-laid. A labor of love for a very special house!
Another view of the master bath showcasing a wall-to-wall mirror and showing a chandelier. Who doesn't love a chandelier in the bathroom?
Step into this well lit and appointed dressing room right off of the master bath featuring clothes racks, shelves, cubbies, and full-length mirror. Style yourself in luxury!
A mud room by the garage entry with plentiful storage. Ready to move in yet?
Upstairs, yet another bonus room! Solar tunnels filter sunlight into this versatile space - use as a bedroom, a gameroom or a library; depending on your needs. We have artist renderings of this space being used different ways.
One of the three main bedrooms upstairs...
...featuring an attached bath
The second bedroom upstairs is big enough for daybed, or as shown in this case, a kids room. Really, your imagination is your only limit. That and physics.
Second bedroom's en suite.
At the end of the corridor sits the 'Baron's Room'. A spacious bedroom with a closet and even a smart closet. Note that it overlooks the Perforated House, named as a top 10 Architecturally Important Houston home.
Off the main living area downstairs you will find a fabulous patio with a kitchen roughed in. Don't miss the details on the ceiling.
Step off the patio onto the lush lawn by the side of the house. Fancy a game of bocce ball? There is enough room for a cocktail pool. Book your showing and come see this spectacular house right away!
