Updated 1920s historic jewel of a house in Houston Texas is for sale. This heart-pounding at first sight house will probably not be on the market for long. It’s labeled traditional, I call it a turquoise dream.
Be still my heart, I have a huge crush. I love it from the little red bricks framing the sidewalk entrance to the adorable arched red door.
The entrance seems to be gift-wrapped upon arrival. Whimsical curved roof lines and arched windows. Perfect porch and patio. Detached garage with apartment/guest quarters. It all adds up to make it one of the nicest homes.
I know you can’t wait to see inside this updated 1920s historic jewel. It is every bit as wonderful as the outside. Wonderful is not an adequate word. The rooms are painted in the latest neutrals.
Can we talk about the fairytale front door in red that reminds me of the cherry in fruit cocktail everyone wants. I call dibs on this front door.
I can just picture blooming flowers or shade-loving plants circling each tree.
The interior of the front door is just as exciting to see. So different and just one reason this is a jewel of a house.
Sunroom with handy built-ins like so many older homes. The home flaunts original hardwood.
Perfect little porch.
Loads of room in this library, home office, or study.
Updated kitchen with double sinks.
Cute little eat in area off the kitchen. I like the light green paint color on the walls and gleaming wood floors.
I love the look of plantation shutters. They are good for letting in light, keeping the light out, and great for privacy. Shutters don’t go out of style and since they are a permanent fixture, increase the value of a home.
There are two master bedrooms, this one on the main floor and one upstairs so take your pick.
Let’s go upstairs…..
Upstairs master bedroom and bath. Is it just me or should that dark beam be painted the same color as the walls to not stick out like a sore thumb?
Here is the extra room that only houses built long ago have. Children would love this space for a playroom.
I did not expect this cute upper deck.
The detached 2 car garage has a guest room or media game room….translation man cave err mom cave would be better. How about a craft room, the possibilities are endless.
That’s it for this move-in ready comfortable updated 1920s historic jewel of a house tour. It has three bedrooms, four baths and was actually built in 1926.
If you live in Houston and want this 1920s Historic jewel for your own, it is on the market for $949,900 with Kathlyn Curtis.
