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.

In this age of build on every square inch and put in six townhomes where one house used to stand, it is beyond refreshing to find a recently-built (2012) cottage in Montrose that reflects the heritage, now challenged, of the charming neighborhood. Not only is the bungalow home at 1216 Bomar an energy saver, it boasts a large yard as it sits on a 5,000-square-foot lot. A free-standing two-car garage, something more familiar in the Heights than Montrose, is an added bonus.

What's inside: The ground floor open plan provides a feeling of spaciousness as the living room flows to the open kitchen and adjacent dining room. A study on the ground floor presents a number of possibilities, ranging from home office to library. The side porch that opens off of the living room is a charming note to the house design.

Three bedrooms, all with hardwood floors, occupy the second floor where the master features a large bath and its own private balcony. The two guest bedrooms share a bath. The third floor flex space, used as an exercise room by current owners, includes a closet and full bath thereby offering several possibilities.

The plantation shutters used on all windows are a special touch throughout the house.

Square footage: 3,100 

Asking price: $879,900
