When the eighties called this Grogan’s Mill home on a cul-de-sac in The Woodlands, the peaky property answered — by updating. There’s fresh paint (inside and out), new tile and countertops, and a new-vibe front door in wood and glass. But evidence of the era from which it sprang remains in the slant-board accents, half-vaulted ceilings, and loft-level cutouts. After all the tweaks targeting today’s buyers, the home was listed last week — for $430,000. Access to and through the home’s woodsy neighborhood is via a street with a Figure 8 right-of-way that’s located off N. Millbend Dr., west of Grogan’s Mill Rd.
A front-loader garage hides the recessed entry, where low-light landscaping greens up a decorative border of stones (above). The gardenette is also the focus of the entry’s picture window:
Tile flooring sweeps through most of 3,314-sq.-ft. home’s ground level.
A half-vaulted ceiling further opens up an already open-plan layout:
Under-cabinet lighting comes from window slices as well as mounted fixtures:
Off the breakfast room, a decklette hangs out beneath an overhang:
Angles abound in the listing photos:
The downstairs includes the master suite . . .
in which there’s direct access outdoors through sliders (above). For a little night reading, tread (carefully) up the floating steps of the spiral staircase:
Updates included a new shower in the master bathroom:
The 3 secondary bedrooms are upstairs, where the passage between rooms enjoys skylights, cutouts, and a view straight down into the family room:
A balcony off one of the bedrooms triangulates beyond the sliding doors:
The shady lot features a variety of ground covers, from patio . . .
to pavers, and much mulch:
