Welcome to 1708 Crockett Street! This amazing Queen Anne center hall home was built in the late 19th century and is located in Houston's First Ward Historic District and Arts District Houston.
With the designation of the First Ward as a Historic District in 1995, the area's architecture is now being preserved and protected. There will be no further modern development within the district.
Arts District Houston has one of the highest concentrations of working artists in the United States. Many of the artist's studios and workshops are within walking distance, in addition to theaters, restaurants, shops, and more!
Updated cottages, like this one, are used throughout the area as studios, shops and office buildings, as well as homes. Guests or clients will immediately be charmed by the white picket fence, brick walkway and front porch.
This large front porch can be accessed from the front, brick walkway or the side stairs leading from the driveway.
Imagine the numerous afternoons enjoyed on this porch over the years! Now you can visit with friends or colleagues while sipping sweet tea or your favorite evening beverage.
Historically, a red door has been a "welcome sign" to guests and travelers. Now, let it welcome you inside to 1708 Crockett Street!
This center hall style home was common as early as the mid-19th century in the American South and Caribbean. The massive hallway can accommodate bookcases, cabinets, sitting areas, hall trees, and more.
The wood floors throughout this particular home are original long-leaf quarter sawn heart pine boards.
The kitchen has been beautifully updated but still keeps the original charm with wood framed windows and doorways.
Classic white cabinets, beautiful granite countertops, simple open shelving, and a gorgeous tile backsplash create a modern, yet timeless, design.
Additional cabinets are located along the side wall, along with a stainless steel gas range and vent hood.
Just beyond the kitchen is this spacious utility room. The washer and dryer stay with the home.
The utility room has a modern tile floor and access to the back deck and yard. Around the corner, there is also a modern and convenient half bath.
The light and bright half bath features white tile and a scalloped edge mirror.
Passing through the large cased opening on the other side of the kitchen, you will enter the living and dining room.
Three large and stunning windows allow natural light to fill the room.
High ceilings, neutral walls, wood trim and floors create a gorgeous room, yet a blank canvas, that would also work well as a showroom or conference room.
Luxurious wide baseboards trim each room and the center hallway.
This lovely front room with three large windows would work wonderfully as a living room or office.
Opposite the front room is a nearly identical room that could also be used as an office, family room or even a third bedroom.
Each of the two bedrooms are spacious, feature high ceilings, a ceiling fan, closet and the original hard wood floors.
These rooms would also work very well as studios, additional offices or meeting rooms.
Here is another view of the second bedroom.
This luxurious full bathroom has been beautifully updated.
Enjoy long, relaxing baths in the deep soaking tub with an English Telephone tub faucet.
A gorgeous tile pattern centers the room and a separate, glass-walled shower stands in the corner.
A large, modern vanity provides ample storage and a stunning stained glass transom window is located over the solid wood door.
A wood deck and concrete patio are located just off of the back door.
Add a bistro table or lounge chair and enjoy peaceful mornings under the shade of the oak tree.
The large backyard has plenty of room to host events, or let the kids or dogs run and play.
Don't miss out on this chance to own a part of Houston's history!
Welcome to 1708 Crockett Street! This amazing Queen Anne "center hall" home was built in the late 19th century in the First Ward Historic District and has been carefully updated to include all modern conveniences yet still retain its original charm.

The area is now also within the Arts District Houston, one of the largest concentrations of working artists in the US. Studios, workshops, restaurants, theaters, shops and more are all within walking distance! Downtown is just minutes away! The layout of this center hall home is perfect for a family or alternate use. Several similar buildings in the area have been converted to offices, shops and studios. The area currently features a mix of Queen Anne cottages, Craftsman bungalows and modern townhomes. However, the designation of the First Ward as a Historic District in 1995 preserves and protects the history and architecture of the area.
