Welcome to 5 Pine Creek Lane, in highly desirable Hilshire Village! The front yard is a gardener's paradise. Raised beds with a decomposed granite pathway leads you from one area to another. Many of the flowers were planted to attract butterflies. Underground wiring to the house ensures that there are no unsightly utility poles to spoil the view.
The rear of the home overlooks the south facing shady back yard, and the balcony across the back is a prime spot to sit and enjoy the outdoors. From the high and flat portion "up top", seen here, the land drops way down to Spring Branch Creek. Harris County records have the lot's square footage at 16,718 sf, which is over a third of an acre! The sloped ravine portion of the lot is taxed at a lower rate than the top part, per HCAD records.
Nestled in the trees, you'd never know that you're this close to all the city conveniences! Zoned to excellent Spring Branch ISD, and with excellent access to the Energy Corridor, Memorial City, City Centre, Downtown Houston, and the Galleria area.
From this bird's eye view can be seen the Houston city skyline, plus some of the newer construction homes nearby.
Sleekly designed kitchen cabinets have wonderful features, such as a pull-out cutting board, designated baking sheet storage, corner Lazy Susan, and much more.
This home underwent an extensive remodel and the solarium extension was added to be able to enjoy all the natural light. Neutral toned tile floors keep it easy to clean and cool underfoot.
Looking into the living room from the back of the home, you can appreciate the soaring ceilings and the natural light from the high windows!
The large inset niche built into the dining room wall is the ideal spot to place a dining room hutch or china cabinet without it jutting into the room. The hall (seen in the center of this photo) leads to the master bedroom suite, huge laundry room and the powder room. Past the wall of pantry cabinets is the door to the garage.
Gorgeous Labradorite stone breakfast bar wraps around the open side of the kitchen and offers plenty of additional seating for family or guests. Sleek, crisp pendant lighting fixtures add additional style.
Huge, sunny living room has plenty of room at one end for a piano. High on the wall windows allow for multiple large furniture and accessory placements. What will YOU do with all of this space?
Easy care parquet hardwood flooring in the downstairs master bedroom. A recently replaced Anderson sliding glass door leads to the back yard.
Accessible from both upstairs bedrooms, the balcony offers an unparalleled view of the wooded yard and the ravine lot.
Valley Oaks Elementary is walking distance from the home.
This is Pine Creek Lane, as you turn off of Westview. The home is just around the bend, on the south side of the road. Pine Creek Lane is not a through street, so is very quiet. The City of Hilshire Village has upgraded the infrastructure, per the Seller, and has replaced the water supply lines with 6" pipes. Sewer lines have been replaced, as well, and the AT&T cable lines have also been upgraded.
Here's a view of the raised garden beds, just waiting to have flowers, herbs, or vegetables added!
The yard is extremely private, as you can see in this view.
The Seller of the home describes this high end gas cooktop as "The best stove EVER!" It features an integrated grill, contiguous grates, and all burners range from a full to a true simmer setting. Sleek stainless steel appliances enhance, and are enhanced by, lovely gray toned tile back splash and the dark gray counters.
The spacious dining room will easily accommodate a much larger table. The windows have all (except the one in the laundry room, per seller) been replaced with double pane windows to make the home much more energy efficient. Notice how the staircase has been designed in the center of the home.
The living room was enlarged with an approx. 4" solarium extension when the home was remodeled. It really takes advantage of the wooded view.
Very spacious dining room, with vaulted ceiling and large window.
Light filled kitchen offers abundant cabinet space and is the perfect setting to create many wonderful meals! A pull out spice rack cabinet is super convenient, too. The convection wall oven is placed higher in the wall so you don't need to bend over to use it.
The stainless steel refrigerator will be conveyed with the home, and the dishwasher is just a few years old. There's a reverse osmosis water filtration system under the sink for drinking water and ice, and there's also a whole house water softener system in place in the garage.
The home's modern design takes full advantage of every storage space possible. The wall of pantry cabinets on the right is fantastic to maintain complete organization, with everything in full view when the doors are opened. And if you're a real "foodie", your cookbook collection has the perfect spot to live in the built in shelves to the left!
An extra closet on the far wall of the master bedroom has a dedicated spot for luggage storage under the stairs. There is absolutely no wasted space in this home!
Master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom, along with a soothing neutral wall color.
Every bathroom should be this bright and beautiful, don't you think? Raised double sinks on the left and the dressing room/closet at the back. Double mirrored medicine cabinet offer tons of storage for daily necessities. The dresser on the right is a stand alone piece of furniture, but fits perfectly in the space.
The view from the dressing room. The floor to ceiling wall cabinet on the right even has a pass-through to the laundry room, located on the other side of the wall! The wood floors flow from the bedroom into this room.
The oversized frameless walk in shower is also light and bright (are you seeing a trend here?) and has recessed niches to store showering needs. An integrated seat is convenient and very useful, and there are two shower heads!
Get dressed in style! Expansive window seat complete with drawers underneath for additional storage. The windows are left uncovered as the back yard is completely private.
Superb laundry room! Tile floors, a pass through to the master bedroom, lots of cabinet space and a highly desirable laundry sink. Ample counter space for folding clothes right out of the dryer. The full sized stacked washer and dryer (to the very right in this photo) will also convey with the home.
This bedroom has a wonderful vaulted ceiling and a large walk in closet lined with cedar. Wood plank flooring allows flexibility in how the room is used, too. South facing sliding door to balcony offers a lovely view of the steep ravine lot and creek way down below.
The third bedroom is currently being used an office. It also has a generously sized walk in closet and a vaulted ceiling.
Walk in closet in bedroom 3. Note the high ceilings that make every room feel so much larger!
The guest bath features a modern design faucet and a linen closet, as well as a walk in shower.
How's this for a great use of space?! Above the wood cabinet is an open look out to the kitchen and dining room, and the staircase wall features a cleverly designed bookcase / shelving unit. No space is wasted throughout this one-of-a-kind home! The wood stairs turn and take you into the center of the home. Thoughtful design choices went into the remodel and are seen throughout the home.
This is the light filled workshop or storage room at the back of the garage. Lot and lots of cabinet and shelving storage space!
The top portion of the lot is flat, and then it drops off to the ravine portion of the property. The seller has left the ravine portion mostly untouched, as she adores the natural setting.
Looking towards the back of the home, you can see how the wall of windows lets the natural light into the home. The home has also been re-sided with low maintenance plank cement board siding.
The gorgeous and well established organic garden is just waiting for you to add your touches to it! All the hard work has been done, so all you need to do is to add some plantings to the raised beds, and you're good to go. Perennial flowers are already in place.
Flowering trees along the front of the property add extra color during the season.
Decomposed granite stone walkways make it a lot easier to access the individual garden areas.
A bird's eye view of the front garden! The wall across the front adds privacy as most of the windows are on the back and sides of the home.
When the roof was replaced, the owner had all of the decking removed and replaced with a thicker radiant barrier decking, and added a ridge vent, which greatly adds to the energy efficiency of the home. Another energy saving feature is a tankless water heater!
The creek can be seen in the lower right corner of this aerial view, with the house almost obscured by the trees towards the upper left. The house is not in the flood zone, and has never flooded. High and dry!
A thick canopy of trees shades the home and yard. Most people find it hard to believe that this is actually in the city. It's a hidden delight!
The oversized driveway offers additional parking for guests. This home was made for entertaining!
An aerial view of the private yard.
Hilshire Village is a great place to make your home! Terrific access to anything you need. The home is not in a Homeowner's Association, and is subject to the ordinances of the City of Hilshire Village. This is a must see property, so don't let it get away!
