Bungalow in the Heights (circa 1940) (Houston, TX)

Cute little Bungalow in the Heights. Built 1940.

When I bought this house it was the worst house on the street. My goal was to make it the best house on the street. And I think I succeeded. Since that time there has been quite a bit of new construction and some other renovations on the block. The whole area has really come up. (It's that "rising tide lifts all boats thing": As the houses in the Heights proper keep getting more and more expensive--frequently into the millions--the adjacent cute older neighborhoods get pulled up as well.)


- 2 bedrooms + 1 bath
- 1 car garage
- 2 x 3000 s.f. lots (fully fenced)
- large back yard with alley access (great for a future big garage)
- original hardwood floors
- nice kitchen with Stickley style cabinets & high-end appliances
(Bosch stainless d/w; Jenn-air side by side counter depth fridge)
- fresh paint with great colors inside and out (no beige, no tan, no bone, no off-white)
- great Sunset Heights location
- new washer & dryer
- most pets OK with deposit

Did I mention that this place has big screened-in porches in the front AND the back?! (Back porch is 10x18--a huge space--fantastic for grillin' & chillin' with friends or just hangin' out and reading a good book on a breezy fall afternoon. Completely screened in so the skeeters can't get ya.)

New fences, pergola, custom wrought iron gates, & cute landscaping in the front as well.

Custom built-ins in the living room will accommodate up to 60" flat screen.

You won't see another vintage bungalow this tight anywhere in the Sunset Heights area.
