This impressive block & stucco home in the heart of Montrose was designed by Carlos Jimenez, principal of Carlos Jimenez Studio & Professor of Architecture at Rice University. Double wide driveway provides the comfort of off street parking to go along with plenty of parking for guests on this curbed street.
The L-shaped configuration of the home privately encloses this lush and shady garden/courtyard, creating a tranquil, serene haven. This home—first built in 1993, with an addition integrated in 2007—is a beautiful study in design, expounding on the rich possibilities of a simple set of boxes.
This part of the home was added and integrated to the original structure in 2007. Huge, east facing window really brings the outside in and provides a spectacular view out to the gorgeous garden/courtyard.
This very large, open living space features a full wall of built-in shelving and a 12 ft ceiling over the dining area. 10 ft ceilings in the rest of the main downstairs living area (including the kitchen).
Older picture showing view from the kitchen of the home when it was furnished. Sealed natural concrete floor was selected for the entirety of the first floor because of its durability and its beauty as it ages.
Kitchen sits at one end of the home's main living space, with granite counters and ample built-in storage.
Stainless steel appliances all throughout the kitchen, including sleek range hood. Mint green wall is meant to animate this space, breaking the predominantly white interior.
Kitchen opens up to the main living space, yet is its own distinct space as well. Note the additional open shelving to the left.
Enormous, north facing window in the owner's bedroom lets in a great deal of natural light and offers a lovely view of the mature tree in the middle of the front yard. The vaulted ceiling extends all the way up to 14 ft.
The owner's suite is its own private retreat as it takes up the entire second floor. Extensive built-ins all through the home are intended to be part of the architecture—complementary features meant to economize on furniture.
Large walk-in closet in the owner's suite has a plethora of built-in hanging space. Hardwood floors selected for the owner's bedroom and closet are a rich and lively mix of white and red oak planks.
Owner's bath boasts granite counters and floor, a vessel sink, a dedicated vanity space, and a full length mirror.
Shower/tub combo in the owner's bath includes a glass door and handheld shower head.
Stairs are close to the front entry with two bedrooms, a powder bath, and utility room off of the main hallway.
Bedroom 2 enjoys a pleasant view out to the lush backyard space and features an en suite bath. All 3 bedrooms provide significant built-ins, including desks in bedrooms 2 & 3.
En suite bath for bedroom 2 includes a tub/shower combo and white Carrara marble counter.
Mint green accent wall here in bedroom 3 is once again meant to break up the home's white interior, and bring a fresh and intense quality to the space.
The home's powder bath, with access to bedroom 3, also has a white Carrara marble counter.
Well landscaped and surrounded by trees, this is a wonderful place for meditation, relaxation, or entertaining friends & family. There is another, more intimate patio space (not pictured) around the home to the right.
This home offers a noted quietude and sense of removal from the noise of the world, allowing other, more nurturing sounds to be heard, especially here in the garden/courtyard. *Older picture of the home.*
Built with tough, honest, and durable materials on a lushly landscaped Montrose lot filled with mature trees, the home's sleek, contemporary design also places an emphasis on natural light.
Already so close to Buffalo Bayou parks & trails and Westheimer restaurants, cafes & bars, this prime Montrose location also offers easy access to nearby treasures like Inversion Coffee, Christy's Donuts Kolaches, Texas Art Supply, and Boheme. *Older picture of the home.*
