In a niche neighborhood near the Museum District, a 1994 modern home designed by architect Natalye Appel blends into the stretch of custom homes on a wishboned street pair between Mandell and Montrose Blvd. The corner property was listed a week ago with a $995,000 asking price and held its opening open house last weekend. Updates since its 2012 change of hands (at $730,000) include a kitchen remodeling and access from the master suite downstairs to a new courtyard and pool.
Sections of the high ceilings accent their half-vault slant with exposed ribs. The 2,445-sq.-ft. floor plan keeps the flow open between light-filled living spaces. A trio of double doors faces west and opens to a shallow, shaded patio near the pool:
The front room juts toward the street and exposes its trusses. Below them, 2 pairs of tall, narrow windows meet in one corner to offer shared views south and east.
The hallway leading to and through the master suite features dial up decor:
Here’s the courtyard view through a wall of full-height glass panels, one of which is a door to the deck.
The 15-ft.-by-18-ft. room’s other walls have smaller windows:
In the master closet, some of the light is sunshine:
The master bathroom tucks its tiled-in tub around the corner from a dual-sink vanity . ..
and it shares a step-up entry with the nearby shower:
The 2 secondary bedrooms and another bathroom are located upstairs. Meanwhile, the poolscape fills the yard between the stuccoed back of the garage (on the left in the photo below) and the residence:
For lawn, head to the front and side portions of the lot, which measures 6,555 sq. ft.:
