This splendid home is located in the prestigious deed-restricted neighborhood of Old Braeswood, on an expansive lot with a heated pool and hot tub. Built in 1935, the home underwent major renovations this year (remodeling of all three bathrooms, fresh paint throughout the interior and exterior, refinishing of original oak floors upstairs and installation of matching solid oak floors throughout the downstairs, along with replacement of light fixtures throughout the interior). The 21,600 square foot lot behind the property is also for sale by the same owner. They are walking distance to the Texas Medical Center, Rice Village, Rice University, NRG Stadium, and the Metro Light Rail Red Line. It is also a short distance to Houston’s famed Museum District, Hermann Park, and only a fifteen-minute commute to Downtown Houston, Arts District Houston, and several additional sports venues. Old Braeswood has contracted security patrol and an active HOA, and also has a garden club and book club.
