Houston Heights Association presents 2017 Spring Home & Garden Tour
Discover Houston Heights’ hidden beauties at the annual Houston Heights Association Spring Home & Garden Tour. The weekend-long home and garden tour will showcase six renovated historic and recently constructed homes in Houston Heights.
The following homes will be featured in this tour:
- The Anderson/Horeis Home – Circa 1916: After being converted from a four-plex back into a single-family home, this eclectic Craftsman home, which adorns the popular Heights Boulevard, was purchased by the current owners in 2014. A perfect blend of 21st century décor, the owners have stayed true to the home’s historic nature by keeping many of the original elements.
- The Sawyer Home – Circa 1900: This remodeled and expanded Queen Anne Victorian home is like walking into a historic row house in England. With one-of-a-kind wallpapers, Farrow & Ball Paint colors and modern lighting, this home has the owner’s personal touch all over it. Once through the door, guests may feel they have stepped back in time to a vintage era.
- The Zanone Home – Circa 1920: One of the original Queen Anne Revival homes in Houston Heights, this smaller home is anything but small when it comes to Victorian character and surprises. The current owner has made many improvements to the home since acquiring it in 2010, and his labor of love will certainly be appreciated by all who enter.
- The Hammonds Home – Circa 1920: This Craftsman-style bungalow was purchased by the current owners in 2007. Retaining its stained glass, box-beam ceilings and built-in hutch, this home is a true testament to a beautiful historic restoration.
- The Niemczak Home – Circa 2015: This custom-built home is a true testament to how much architectural charm and character can be put on one lot. Replacing a three-unit apartment building, this Acadian-inspired home contains many custom features, including a basement, commissioned art pieces from local artists and an outdoor patio space that will make you want to stay outside all evening.
- The Ogiers Home – Circa 2016: The newest house on the tour, this home was built by the owners on the site of a house that had been demolished due to water and smoke damage. The two-story contemporary American farmhouse-style home has a wide array of custom additions throughout, including an outdoor living space with a vaulted stained tongue-and-groove ceiling, and an indoor music room with a grand piano and collection of guitars.
