Are you house hunting for something unique and fabulous? KHOU Ch. 11 news anchor Lily Jang and CultureMap contributor Marcy de Luna hit the pavement in search for an exceptional, one-of-a-kind charmer in the heart of one of the city's iconic historic nabes.
On the market in Houston Heights is a City of Houston Landmark that's also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Located at 1233 Yale St., adjacent to Milroy Park and across from the Houston Heights Fire Station, is a 5,334-square-foot Queen Anne Victorian residence perched on fully fenced double lot. The gated one-and-a-half story home has been impeccably and tastefully updated to include modern conveniences such as a gourmet kitchen with Carrara marble counters and professional-grade appliances. The addition of a spa-like master bathroom with a walk-in party shower is sure to appease the lifestyle requirements of sophisticated buyers.
The original 1905 millwork and 12-foot ceilings are two exceptional features that add to the home, the separate studio, loft and two guests quarters. The welcoming parlor's ceiling architectural details are to die for.
Listed by Greenwood King Properties realtor Amanda Anhorn for $915,000, the home isn't suitable for everyone's budget. But when the right buyer comes along, the property, which has been featured on past neighborhood tours, will be the envy of those with a penchant for mixing the charm of the past with the luxuries of today.
