Imagine hanging out with friends and family in this amazing backyard space!
This impressive home features a one-of-a-kind custom design from local architect Les Bottoms, who used it as his personal residence. It sits in a lovely Houston Heights location, zoned to National Blue Ribbon award-winning Field Elementary, only 2 blocks from Halbert Park, and just a stone's throw away from the 19th Street Shopping District.
Such a beautiful entryway to come home to every day! Imagine sitting on the covered front porch on a gorgeous day with a cup of coffee or glass of wine, looking out on the beautifully landscaped front yard.
Just inside the front door sits the light filled formal living room. Fresh paint and refinished hardwoods are a couple of the noteworthy updates to this lovingly maintained home.
Another look at the formal living space, which sits adjacent to the formal dining room. The two rooms are open, yet defined, allowing for seamless interchange, but also letting them function as independent spaces.
At the end of the main hallway sits a wonderful open space housing the kitchen, breakfast room, and family room. Brazilian cherry floors extend all through the first floor.
Both the breakfast area and the breakfast bar along the kitchen provide a good space to sit and enjoy a meal. Note the nifty recipe nook in the kitchen.
The kitchen boasts a stainless steel GE Profile Series appliance package, including a french door refrigerator with water filter and ice maker. Note the delightful tile backsplash.
The family room includes a built-in entertainment center for your TV, books, pictures, artistic pieces and more. Around the corner to the left is a nice size mudroom and access to the attached 2-car garage.
Walls of windows ensure this main living space is bathed in natural light. Gorgeous views out to the pool area from this side of the home too.
Built-in speakers are found here in the family room as well as in the formal dining and living rooms. This is a very welcome feature whether entertaining guests or enjoying some tunes in a more intimate setting.
Primary bedroom suite is privately positioned, off to the right as you're coming up the stairs. The charming stained glass window pictured here is just one of a few you'll find around this home. En suite bath sits through the opening pictured on the left.
French doors open up to a Juliet balcony with a pleasant view to the pool. Open these doors to let some fresh air in on a crisp early spring or late fall day.
The primary bedroom suite is a great example of the home's generous storage. Not only does it have a large walk-in closet with built-ins, but just outside the bedroom you'll find a very useful storage nook.
The primary bath includes a beautiful claw foot tub that's perfect for a nice, relaxing soak. Dual sinks in this bath as well.
And when you're not in the mood for a bath, there's always the frameless, walk-in shower.
Hardwood floors, a ceiling fan, and plenty of natural light in this secondary bedroom.
This bath is shared by the two secondary bedrooms. The bath is thoughtfully designed so that both bedrooms have their own private sink area.
Second floor utility room has its own sink and a great deal of built-in storage (even more storage is found on the side not pictured).
The other secondary bedroom is currently used as an office. As is the case throughout the home, this room is filled with natural light.
At the top of the second floor landing you'll find this convenient office nook with its own built-in shelves—an identical version of that bookcase is found on the side not pictured here.
The home has a centrally located powder bath on the first floor.
Just outside your back door is a stunning oasis! This brilliantly landscaped space features a pool with waterfall feature and substantial patio and porch space to enjoy.
Behind the home is the guest house—a 2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1930s bungalow that originally served as the home's primary residence. Architect Les Bottom's unique vision called for moving the bungalow to the back of the lot, building the pool, and then constructing the new home.
This elevated and covered back porch sits below a high ceiling and provides a refreshing view overlooking the pool.
The living room in the guest house features a tray ceiling and has french doors that open up to the pool area (behind the couch).
Another look at the main living space in the guest house. This is a full 2 bedroom, 1 bath home so it makes for a substantial space for guests or a potential tenant/Airbnb guest.
Ample space to work in this full kitchen, plus a lovely view out to the pool from over the sink.
The first of two bedrooms in the guest house. The guest house has A/C and a washer/dryer hookup.
The second bedroom in the guest house is currently utilized as a workout space.
The full bath in the guest house includes a shower/bath combo. Note the stained glass window.
The property's oversized lot even has space for you to satisfy your green thumb!
One-of-a kind custom design by local architect Phil Schawe & local builder Les Bottoms, this magnificent home sits on an oversized, beautifully landscaped Houston Heights lot complete with a pool and 2 BR, 1 BA guest house—a lovely 1930s bungalow that originally functioned as the property’s primary home. With a wall of windows for superb natural light (and serene views out to the pool), the open family room/breakfast room/kitchen area of the home was masterfully designed for you to get the most out of life, whether you’re entertaining or simply relaxing. Fresh paint, surround sound, refinished hardwoods, impeccable trim detail, GE Profile appliances, generous storage/useful built-ins throughout, clawfoot tub, stained glass windows...there’s a lot to love about this home! Enjoy being zoned to National Blue Ribbon award-winning Field Elementary, only 2 blocks from Halbert Park, and surrounded by beloved local shops and restaurants, not to mention all the great shopping along near
