Editor's Note: Houston is loaded with must-have houses for sale in all shapes, sizes and price ranges. In this continuing series, CultureMap snoops through some of its faves and gives you the lowdown on what's hot on the market.

Act fast and you, too, can live in what CNN Money recently crowned as one of America’s 10 Best Big-City Neighborhoods with a deal-sealing bonus: A rare double-corner lot. That is as long as you're a near millionaire.

The expansive 1920s gem at 405 Woodland St. in Woodland Heights, listed at just under a cool million, offers indoor and outdoor living spaces galore. Visitors to the Sept. 8 open house were surely impressed by the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath charmer with two master bedrooms, one upstairs and one down, formal dining, study and sunroom. Throughout are plantation shutters and original hardwoods.

But don't think outdated bungalow, this treasure has been expanded and renovated providing modern baths and a state-of-the-art kitchen.

The shady, fully fenced lot provides a cozy covered porch, multiple courtyards and green spaces. And there’s more: A large private side yard opens to a guest apartment or, if you prefer, a future pool house.

Square footage: 3,426

Asking price: $974,900
