Call it the best of both worlds: This fully renovated Heights bungalow has the charm of 1920 and the amenities of 2020—and it's listed for under a million.
At 1,835 square-feet, the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home in the Historic Preservation District of the North Norhill neighborhood is going for $679,000 with John Daugherty Realtors.
The charming home on a 5,000-square-foot lot was built in 1920 but brought down to the studs and completely refurbished for modern convenience with a 500-square-foot addition. Despite being outfitted with all-new amenities, it retains the early 20th-century charm that is the hallmark of Houston's bungalows.
The redesigned floorplan features open-concept living, dining, and kitchen spaces, the latter with a quartzite island, Jenn Air stainless appliances, Calacatta marble backsplash, and barstool seating. The whole space is light and bright, with bamboo flooring throughout which continues into a cozy office/den area separate from the main living space.
Two secondary bedrooms boast custom closets and are joined by a marble hall bathroom with double sinks and a tub shower, but the master suite is where it's at: The extra 500 square-feet was put to good use with that bedroom and custom walk-in closet, an in-house utility room, powder bath, and marble master bath with an antique clawfoot tub and walk-in shower.
Important albeit less glamorous mechanical improvements were made, too, plus all new electrical and plumbing in 2019 to ready this cute little abode for the second coming of the roaring '20s.
