Queen Anne reigns in many of the original elements remaining in an updated 1906 Houston Heights cottage and its lookalike shingle-tipped garage. They share a short-sheeted lot across from Harvard Elementary School and a bit north of the hike-and-bike trail. Listed Monday, the property is asking $294,600.
The listing pegs the home’s footprint at 1,003 sq. ft., but HCAD indicates 935 sq. ft. and shows a 2005 remodeling. Changes in the millwork between rooms highlight some updates, which include French doors and a double-door closet in this porch-accessible tilt-topped space at the back of the house:

The home last sold in 2009, for $259,000.
