Deep porches on an updated 1915 Eastwood home listed for lease look toward a residential street lined with similarly neighborly vantage points, all shaded by huge palm trees and live oaks. Behind the home run train tracks — and a tract promised for Lovett Commercial’s Harrisburg Crossing, a mix of retail and office space fronting Harrisburg Blvd. between Oakhurst and Lockwood streets. That juxtaposition also puts the rental home around the block from Metro Rail’s Green Line station at Lockwood.
The Prairie Style Craftsman property was a 1913 design by architect William T. Little, based on a Sears’ “Sunbeam” plan, according to a materials prepared by the Eastwood Civic Club. HCAD, meanwhile, indicates 2004 renovations to the 1,754-sq.-ft. home and its garage, which was added in 1946. Many of the original features remain, however, such as the hardware, hardwood flooring, and wavy-glass windows in the front rooms. Built-in shelving behind glass doors flanks the sunshiny living room’s fireplace (above), fills a dining room corner (at right), and finishes the kitchen to its ceiling (below).
Both (camera shy) bedrooms are upstairs; each has access to a sitting room looking into nearby treetops:
Tucked into an upstairs corner, 1 of the 2 full bathrooms makes a public appearance. (The other is downstairs.)
French doors at the back of the home connect the full-width den with the deck. There’s also a back yard on the 8,250-sq.-ft. lot.
Heavy growth at the back fence line screens a narrow roadway parallel to the Union Pacific tracks. Schematics for the office-retail center show a 4-story garage could be coming to the home’s back door vista.
