5 BedRoom/4 Bath
This is a 1939 home with an incredibly unique open vaulted ceiling made of the original shiplap roofing material. The roof, layout, and flooring is rehabbed, and then we restore the siding and front facade to the original based on neighbor feedback and old pictures. In the rear, there is a large addition including a basement garage and game room, as well as a rooftop deck. The resulting 5 bedroom (optional down to 3 for more open space) / 4 bath home is unique in size and character. The house sits on an equally unique corner lot with 2 monster heritage Post Oaks in the front and 360 full horizon views including Downtown directly to the West.
7 houses from the 1920s on less than 1/2 acre of land - full restorations with master bath additions.
3 Bedroom / 2.5 Bath
We first had our eye on this gorgeous classic about a year ago, and are super happy to have finally secured the deal. 901 was built in the 20s when it was an on demand property on East Avenue. Now it's adjacent to I-35, but we see the downtown view, history, and easy access location (to downtown, town lake, and east side) as a major positive.
Just 2 blocks from Guerro's on South Congress, this house was in bad enough shape that nobody wanted to buy it (and way too small of a lot for the McMansion guys to move in on). Now it's a beautiful rental house with charm to spare, and more on the way.
This beauty was going to get demolished in 2009 before we acquired the "dump" and not only saved its old bones, but exposed all the 1920s longleaf pine floors and shiplap walls and ceilings.
