This 1981 Queen Anne-inspired property (just north of 249 at Beltway 8 and two blocks south of Bourgeois Rd.) lets you straddle the line between past and present— the exterior of the Cypress Creek home showcases Victorian-era architectural stylings, while more modern amenities pop up inside. Listed earlier this month for $185,000, the 2,116-sq.-ft. home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, as well as a garage apartment, a pool, and a master suite with its own turret. Step onto the wrap-around porch and come inside for a tour:
Carved molding greets visitors inside the leaded-glass front door and coordinating sidelights:

The glass vessel sink and chrome faucet in the powder room are framed by the dark wood trim of the 6-panel doors.
