Dual personality: Historic Heights bungalow has a contemporary vibe inside
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.
While the charming exterior keeps this 1940 Woodland Heights bungalow in sync with the historic neighborhood, the front door opens to a contemporary vibe inside and continues the party outside with multiple outdoor entertaining options.
The house, located at 922 Woodland St., is now on the market with an asking price of $835,000.
The remodel about 10 years ago leaves polished hardwood floors, high ceilings and lots of windows and adds lofty spaces throughout. Enter into the cozy living area sharing a front room with the formal dining room. The custom kitchen is nearby, boasting a six-burner Viking range, wine fridge, zinc-topped island with barstool seating, numerous prep stations and plenty of storage. A desk area sits at the far end of the extensive counterspace.
The master suite occupies an entire wing at the back of the house with a loft bedroom overlooking a spacious sitting area and study opening to the covered deck from French doors. Two walk-in closets add to the amenities here, as does a master bath with dual vanities, oversized shower and claw-foot soaking tub. A stained glass window in the shower brings in natural light and makes a nod to the home's original styling.
In total, the house offers three bedrooms and two full baths, as well as a detached guest house/studio.
The party begins here with outdoor living under a covered deck with stained wood flooring — an oasis perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The large lot still allows for a side yard with green space for any activities. A step-down from the porch leads around the corner to the lap pool surrounded by brick sidewalks and built-in planters. A cabana at one end of the pool provides more protected space. An additional bricked patio is located off the kitchen near the guest house.
