I spotted a precious new listing on har.com today that I have to share with you. The real estate market in Houston hasn't taken nearly as hard a hit with the economy as other cities, so prices for homes inside the loop are still pretty shocking.
This 1930's, 2300 sq ft home (3 bedrooms/ 2.5 bath/ plus a garage apt), on a premier street in Southgate (across from Rice University stadium) will cost you around $280 per square foot.
The front exterior has been painted a taupe color and has new black awnings and a gas lantern:
The house is quite charming in an old world, simplistic way. The dining room is small and has 2 beautiful red painted hutches and a farm style table with bare hardwood floors:
The main living floors are all hardwood, including the kitchen which has a fabulous Viking Stove and Sub-zero fridge:
The kitchen is my favorite room with two big windows, painted cabinets (can't quite make out the color), glass cabinet doors, and a usable breakfast bar. These beautiful English Slate tile countertops are a welcomed sight after seeing too many granite-filled kitchens:
The sunroom is just off the kitchen and boasts an entire back wall of french doors/windows bringing in lots of natural light. The tile floors add nice texture and although the photo doesn't show it the ceiling has exposed beams. I just love that large antique hutch behind the couch:
The living room is small and simple with hardwood floors and lots of natural light, especially considering the dark-painted walls.
The custom stair treads are just amazing:
The original floor tile remains in the remodeled secondary bath complete with white subway tile on the walls and pedestal sink with French-style faucet:
The back patio could use some wood stain and a nice arbor or awning to provide shade from the hot Houston sun, but retains the old world charm nonetheless.
