One of the Inwood Forest properties near the neighborhood’s former golf course and clubhouse seems to have split personality. A stately late seventies contemporary — tiers of windows in a variety of sizes and groupings finish out an assortment ofÂ bump-outs (and bump-ups) — opts for some How the West Was Fun flourishes inside (top). The property, located on Antoine Dr. north of W. Little York, faces a side street but takes its address from the thoroughfare. In its relisting over the weekend, the 1979 custom home’s asking price is set atÂ $214K. A previous listing by the same agent had sought $242K in June 2014, with a reduction to $222K in August.
From high in the vault above the main living area at the front of the home, a lone star (above) and lone rider (below) keep watch. The room has access to an enclosed courtyard at the front of the home:
Fireplaces on opposite sides of the stone-faced interior wall serve family room (above) and nook-sized living room. Its windows look into the courtyard at the front of the 3,048-sq.-ft. home:
Tile flooring also spreads into the dining room, where a mirrored accent wall appears to add to the seating (and saddling) options:
The kitchen rides an island range. Ranchero motif wallpaper currently pairs up with cactus-scratched cabinetry that’s painted in shades of sage in bloom.
The other side of the kitchen’s service prep window . . .
contains an informal dining spot with double-door access to the back yard:
Another bank of seating bellies up to the bar:
Make that one side of the bar. The other flank serves the living room:
Carpeting muffles the semi-open staircase, which stops a spell for a balcony on the turn. The side window peers toward the front walk and recessed entry:
The ceiling (and window tiers) keeps rising, but the rooms are all on this level. One side has space for gathering and games:
There’s also an office nook:
All 3 bedrooms are located upstairs. Here’s the master, the only one shown in the listing:
There’s a second full bathroom and a half bath elsewhere in the floor plan.
Part of the 10,850-sq.-ft. lot, meanwhile, has been paved for covered and open patio use (and pottery storage). Across a shallow-but-wide strip of lawn, the back fence screens the side wall of a neighboring home:
The neighborhood commands a $275 annual maintenance fee.
