Editor's Note: Houston, the surrounding areas and beyond are loaded with must-have houses and properties for sale in all shapes, sizes and price ranges. In this continuing series, CultureMap snoops through some of the best and gives you the lowdown on what's hot on the market.
If you like being in the center of things, this townhouse at 2615 Westgate is just the ticket. Located in a quiet pocket between Westheimer and West Alabama and within a stone's throw of Shepherd Drive, the three-story property, built in 2011, offers serene living amid the city hustle and bustle. Clean contemporary lines and open spaces belie the proximity of the busy thoroughfares, which, once street construction is complete, will offer easy transit to inner loop destinations.
What's inside: Unlike many townhouses built today, the ground floor is all about living, no bedrooms on terra firma. The living room, dining room and kitchen are free-flowing making this a great place for entertaining and a comfortable place for daily living.
The master suite and two guest rooms are located on the second floor while the third floor houses not only a fourth bedroom but also a study and media room. (No worries for the arthritis set as the place is elevator ready for all three floors.)
Extra touches include two gas log fireplaces, a covered terrace, high ceilings, quartz countertops in the kitchen and a patio backyard, which means small. But what urban dweller needs any more green space than enough for a grill and patio furniture?
