Squinch your eyes and imagine what this ivy-covered cottage could become with a careful rehabilitation: your forever home, a law office, floral shop, tea room. It's located in Montrose just a block east of S. Shepherd.
Both the living room and dining room have classic dentil molding and old-school hardwood floors. The front door faces south.
Standing just inside the front door, this is the view of the living room and into the dining room.
If you love to have guests over to dinner, the spacious dining room has room for a sideboard and wine bar, as well as dining table. Note the chandelier.
To the right of the front door, this sunroom could be adapted to any number of uses, including office, library, media room or lounge. The French doors on the left open into one of the bedrooms.
In the kitchen, the island cooktop is electric. If you prefer gas, the pier-and-beam construction makes it easy to run in a new gas line.
The light-filled kitchen opens out onto the wood deck, swimming pool and garage. The driveway is gated.
The three French doors on the left are fixed, but could all be replaced with doors that open out onto the deck. The door on the far right leads to the stairwell and one of the two downstairs bedrooms.
Pink tile? Yes, please! The first-floor bath, located between the two bedrooms, is an Art Deco dream. The separate shower is shown on the right.
The rear first-floor bedroom is closest to the kitchen.
The second first-floor bedroom is located toward the front of the house and opens into the sunroom.
This is another view of the front bedroom, which opens into the sunroom.
The cozy master bedroom is located in the converted attic space.
A large walk-in shower (right) is the centerpiece of the master bathroom. There's room for a piece of exercise equipment or vintage linen closet. (See the wall space reflected in the mirror.)
A small utility room is on the second floor next to the master bedroom.
A large palm tree and several banana trees give a tropical accent to the pool.
Finally, a view from the back of the property back toward the house. The two-car garage is on the left.
Home renovators and DIYers will love the opportunities offered by this 1935(per HCAD) ivy-covered cottage. If you have the vision and the skills (or know crafts people who do), you could remake it into an Instagrammable vintage home and pool. Those less inclined to spend months working on such a project might find it more advantageous to raze the house and start over -- the 6,200+ sq ft (per HCAD) lot can accommodate a comfortable family home. Either way, this property is in a prime Montrose location (close to Upper Kirby, just east of S. Shepherd) that is convenient to shopping, excellent supermarkets and restaurants and just a short drive to the Texas Medical Center, downtown or The Galleria. It is priced to sell.
