Welcome home to 10214 Ella Lee Lane, in popular Briargrove Park. Ideally located in the vibrant heart of West Houston, you're only moments away from fantastic shopping, top of the line restaurants, and entertainment venues! The house doesn't look too big from the street, but it boasts an impressive 3061 sf of living space inside!
Beautiful shade tree anchors the front yard, and there's a pretty garden bed along the front elevation. The original owner has lovingly cared for the home over the years, so you will be able to update it to your own taste. With the home's good bones, and your good taste, you can take this home to amazing!
Ample counter space in the spacious kitchen, and double wall ovens make it a breeze to prepare meals. Note the high end stainless steel two drawer Fisher and Paykel Dishwasher next to the double sink! There are numerous deep drawers, as well.
Gleaming hardwood floors in the formal dining room. The doors on the right lead directly into the kitchen, and the large windows on the front wall look out to the private front atrium/patio area. Lovely crystal chandelier and custom draperies add to the elegant feel of the room.
Custom block paneling adds character and warmth to the impressive living room, which also features an inviting full brick gas log fireplace and two walls of windows! This view is upon entering from the breakfast room. The soft contemporary style features the soaring vaulted ceilings.
The centrally located atrium is the perfect spot to indulge your inner gardener! Complete with a watering system, which even covers the hanging baskets. It's a gorgeous and serene view from both the master bedroom and the living room, as well as from different vantage points within the house.
There's a sliding gate on this portion of the driveway. The owners used to temporarily keep a Motorcoach there for a day or two while getting it ready for a trip. The neighborhood deed restrictions don't allow you to store one onsite, of course, but a day or so should be OK. We can supply you with a copy of the deed restrictions if you'd like to check! They also had 50 amp electrical service installed in the driveway area to service the motorcoach.
The covered front porch is a nice and dry spot to sit outside and enjoy the outdoors. And since it's covered, you won't get wet coming from the garage on those rainy Houston days! Cute little garden patio in front of the dining room windows is topped with an open pergola style patio cover. One of the upgrades done by the owners was to replace the original siding with cement board (Hardiplank) siding, fantastic for durability! The screen door is great to allow the cooling breezes to enter the
Absolutely gorgeous stained wood front door with leaded glass! Original terrazzo flooring is in the foyer and downstairs hall, and there's a powder room conveniently located by the front door. The center entry hall provides access to the entire downstairs of the home without undue traffic through the other rooms.
Company coming? Dine in style! There's plenty of room for a china cabinet and a buffet in this formal dining room. This shot is taken from the far corner of the dining room, looking towards the kitchen and the foyer. The inside of the home was just repainted in August 2018.
Continuing into the home, the kitchen is to the left and the hall to the living room is on the right. To the right is master bedroom suite and the atrium.
Gorgeous view of the atrium from the foyer! There's a special coating on the glass which makes it difficult to photograph well. Upstairs is a nice sized landing and two large secondary bedrooms, plus the guest bath.
Magnificent wall of windows in the family room! A sliding glass door gives quick access to the private garden outside.
From the fireplace wall, you can see the upstairs landing and the wet bar, along with the breakfast room. This is the definition of an entertainment-sized living room!
The kitchen features a generously sized walk in pantry, complemented by a huge work or serving island with an integrated electric cook-top. The island's cabinets feature custom built pull out drawers, so you won't lose anything in the backs of the cabinets!
The breakfast room will hold just about any size or shape table, and is the heart of the home! Though the swinging doors is the bar area with additional cabinets and storage, and the laundry room is to the left, behind the breakfast room.
Look at all the extra display shelving and cabinets in the "wet bar"! This would be the perfect spot to add a wine chiller, without sacrificing valuable space in the kitchen. Your stemware will look terrific in here...
The utility room is conveniently located by the back door, and there's room for an extra full size fridge or freezer in here, too. Plus there's a full size broom closet, too.
Your own private garden has an open pergola style cover overhead to shield plants (and people!) from the direct sun. It's made of heavy duty aluminum with a baked on paint finish, so it's low maintenance and very easy to keep clean. And the brick wall with a wrought iron gate ensures lots of privacy!
Large master bedroom with high ceilings overlooks the atrium. New flooring and window treatments will make this room sing!
The master bath features double sinks, a separate commode, and two good sized closets, along with wall cabinets for linen and toiletries storage. Faucets have been recently replaced.
The spacious master bath has all kinds of neat surprises, like this full size walk in tub and a terrazzo stone accent wall.
There's also a separate shower, trimmed with terrazzo and black tile accents.
Yes, this is a full size cedar closet! How awesome and practical is this? After the dressing room was added, this regular closet was converted into a cedar closet.
This home has a very cool and rare feature - a dedicated dressing room! Through the pocket door on the far wall, an addition was done a few years ago, adding a dressing room, shelved storage area and last but not least, a second story home office! Keep looking at the pictures to see...
For the person who has everything... your very own dressing room! Imagine how this could be tricked out with some of the new built in closet systems? Pinterest worthy, to say the least!
Wooden adjustable shelving has all the space you desire for your collections (shoes are a collection, am I right?!)! The stairs lead to a secluded home office, craft room, or even 4th bedroom.
The room at the top of the second stairs was used as a home office. It's a very peaceful place to work, study, create, or dream since it's located away from the busier areas of the home. There's a window located high on the side wall to let in natural light!
The far wall of the office is lined with adjustable shelves.
The wall mounted light fixture keeps the room light and bright, even on a dark day.
This is the upstairs guest bedroom at the back of the home. Like the rest of the home, it has just been painted white.
The back bedroom has a reach in closet, and is located next to the guest bath.
Vintage wallpaper and light fixtures in the upstairs guest bath. The tub/shower and commode are separate from the double sinks. The bathroom is a great layout and extremely functional, and some simple cosmetic updates will take this to a whole new level!
The upstairs landing has room for a small furniture piece. Built in recessed wall shelving and an overlook into the family room adds interest and character to an often neglected space.
The upstairs front bedroom is generously sized, at 15'1" x 11'8". High windows allow for multiple furniture placement options. A walk in closet is great for storage. Both of these windows have the exterior shutter shades; one is wall switch controlled, and the other is manually controlled.
The front bedroom has a "box" window that has electric-controlled shutters on the outside. Lots of light, and very spacious!
And here's another awesome surprise -- A full size workshop located along the back of the garage! Well lit by a window and abundant overhead lighting, it's the ideal place to get busy and get creative! With a wall mounted A/C & heating unit, you'll be able to work year round in comfort. Not into woodworking? Then how about an exercise or weight room? Or a potting shed? Or just a ridiculous amount of storage space? So many possibilities!
Another open patio cover graces the area in the front of the home and protects it from the hot direct sun. Paver flooring keeps the area very low maintenance.
The pavers continue and border the sides of the extended driveway along the side of the house. Pretty landscape beds are ready to be planted to suit your own taste! On this side of the house all three windows have exterior "hurricane-style" shutters installed, which are controlled from the inside of the house. They can be easily adjusted to add in variable amounts of lights or to completely block out the light if you desire.
The side yard has enough room for kids and pets to play, but is small enough to keep yard work to a minimum.
The back yard has several orange / citrus trees.
