Updated 1920s Historic Jewel Houston Texas For Sale
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.

The word adorable came to mind as I was reading and admiring the photos. I really like that porch and could imagine sitting out there with visitors, chatting. That beam really is an eye sore.
Someday I want to live in the country too.
I did think about the heat there a little, so thank you for the plus 1 that is also has a very desirable shaded lot.
That is hysterical Stephanie, but I am right with you on wanting this little jewel.
Another gorgeous house, Sue!!! I have family who live in this area of Texas. Need the shade for the extreme heat. It’s beautiful with the sun shining on the front of this house… and that bathroom!!
Such a cute cottage. I live in the country and would love this sitting on our property. Thanks for sharing.

This is definitely my kind of house with all its little extras including oh yes please, the garage apartment!
Yes! I vote for Mom Caves for all us women! You could put all your dishes in there Candy.
ok im calling the master down stairs mine did you see that tub stunning and the grounds awesome and the room by the garage definitely a craft room lol
This lovely home is pure charm. From top to bottom I love it. The mom (or dad)cave is a super bonus that I would love to have in my next home.
Hi Robin, it is always the nicest to hear from you.
Lovely! From the porch to the built-ins and so many of them! So quaint.
Thanks Carol for also mentioning the light switches and crown molding.
Homes today just don’t have the wonderful detail like this historic house. I love the built ins, crown molding, medallions surrounding the light switches and of course the wonderful curb appeal of the turquoise with red.
