Staying home will be enjoyable with a covered outdoor space and luxurious pool. Even looking out onto the pool is calming. Just a block from Heights hike & bike trail and 2 blocks from curbside pick up at the new HEB grocery. Luxury and simplicity.
Purchased new in 2012, the owner bought the lot next door to have room to add custom pool and expansive covered porch. 2188 SF house, 500+ SF wraparound back porch on a 6550 SF double lot.
The house is unique in many ways, including off-street parking in front. The garage is accessible from PAVED alley. (Most Heights alleys are pretty rough, not this one). Shaded parking in front, or secure garage parking in back.
The Heights is known for its porches. This front porch is particularly inviting and looks out into trees. Greet your neighbors as the walk by.
The columned foyer makes a great entry for guests. Tall ceilings, shiny solid oak floors.
The front room is being used as a dining room, but there is ample room beside kitchen for less formal dining. This could be a great sitting room or study.
The door on left goes past pantry, into kitchen. The tall windows make for a very light house. Again...gorgeous floors. This house has been gently lived in.
This space off kitchen could be your main dining area if you don't want to use a formal dining room. Use either area as sitting room, etc. depending on your lifestyle.
Range with convection oven is in island. Granite, stainless appliances, lots of cabinets. Under-counter lights highlight the glass tile back splash.
You won't be hidden away in this kitchen. It opens to family room.
Great easy-to-reach kitchen. Stainless appliances, farm sink. Pantry is behind refrigerator. Passage on either side of refrigerator leads to front of house.
Powder room is just past the foyer.
Lots of French doors to see onto porch and pool for true indoor-outdoor living. The side door was added to original house when porch expansion was done. It looks onto large side yard.
Gas fireplace for those cool days.
This is a very open house. The step down visually separates kitchen without walls.
With all the doors this porch feels like an extension to the living area. The composite decking is several years old now, but looks like new. Definitely low maintenance. There is a French drain underneath the porch to make sure no water accumulates in stormy weather. Picture yourself under the fan doing your Zoom meetings, or just enjoying a drink.
All bedrooms are upstairs. The master is in front and includes a sitting area. The builder of the home, Ostlind Thomas, is known for their detailed trim.
Double doors lead to master bath.
You will fall in love with the master bath. Twin sinks with multi-level marble counters. Whirlpool tub and separate shower. Toilet is behind door on left. The other door is to closet.
Take shower or relax in jetted tub.
Shelves and niches on all four sides of closet.
The second bedroom has French doors and is currently used as office. Oak floors in all bedrooms.
This Hollywood bath is shared by bedrooms two and three. These two bedrooms are at opposite end of house from the master.
Third bedroom connects to Hollywood bath.
This added porch not only serves as an outdoor entertainment area, it overlooks pool, cool-decked area and the large landscaped side yard.
Take a break during your day or relax after work. What better way is there to unwind? Three water falls plus LED lights at each end of pool. Pool equipment hidden behind fence on left.
Side yard for kids, pets, gardening, etc. The pool is almost hidden from street view by landscaping.
There is even yard space behind the pool. The garage is set back from alley so there is room to park in back too.
Pick your spot to relax; on the cool-deck, the covered porch, or in the pool itself. One of the pool seating areas even has a spot to put umbrella. Even the garage has a softer look than the typical utilitarian garage.
The paved alley is wonderful. No bumpy, mud-filled potholes. The neighbors all contributed to make this happen. No photos of inside the garage but it is finished and has added cabinets. The garage has pull-down steps for additional storage. The owner has made very thoughtful improvements to the original home.
Evening is a great time to enjoy the outdoor areas. Lots of trees make this an inviting, walkable street. Just a block from hike/bike trail.
You can fit a lot of guests on this expansive porch, or use it for your private area. The composite decking still looks brand new.
The Heights is designated one of Houston's Top 10 Walkable Neigborhoods. This location is surrounded by shops and restaurants. It is also 1 block from hike/bike trail and just a few blocks from the new HEB grocery store.
Even the garage has a cool cottage look. The pool (by Premier Pools) is 32 ft long and 25 ft wide at widest part. Multicolored LED lights and 3 waterfalls. Enjoy the deck, the landscaped yard or the big porch.
Come visit this home and see all it has to offer. A wonderful house in fantastic Houston Heights.
