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 the best and gives you the lowdown on what's hot on the market.

This adorable, sun-filled house is cuteness all wrapped up and then tied with the location-location bow in one of the city’s — and the country’s — most desirable neighborhoods, the historic Houston Heights.

Built in 1920, this happy abode at 811 Le Green St. is just a hop, skip and a jump from some of the best the Heights has to offer, including great restaurants, quaint — and quite good — coffee shops and, the heart of the Heights, 19th Street. A not-to-miss, family-friendly event each August along this funky district is White Linen Night in the Heights. Residents from across Houston come out dressed in their white linen finest to enjoy live entertainment, dance performances, art and food booths and shopping.

Walk Through
With all these — and more — amenities at hand, it’s home, sweet home, a recently remodeled tiny jewel with beautiful moldings, arched doorways, built-ins and hardwood floors. Considerably large rooms fill the charming house, counting two bedrooms and two baths, a sun or music room and formal living and dining rooms. The kitchen with modern appliances is now painted a cheery yellow — to match the sunshine exterior.

Step Outside

A detached garage sits at the back of the property. An automatic sprinkler system brings water to all the flower beds. A private and shaded custom brick patio in the backyard completes this lovely home.
