From the street, this lightly landscaped property in Antoine Forest Estates appears a bit stark. The 1983 home’s greenery is out back, however, where a screen of trees at the lot line throws shade on a yard-sized pool and patio. The outback scenery’s all within view of the main living area’s floor-to-cathedral ceiling windows fireside. There’s another unobstructed view over in the master bathroom (at left), where the soaker tub’s picture window also shows off nature. In both directions. For even more natural surroundings, head to the westside trail of nearby White Oak Bayou.

Last week, this property’s listing popped up for 2 days, terminated, and re-listed with a new agency, keeping the initial asking price at $139,900. Downstairs, all rooms lead to the wooden-paneled all-purpose den with built-ins and a wet bar (above).
The 2,552-sq.-ft. home has a formal dining room (above) and an informal dining area off the kitchen (below):
In the kitchen, the box window in the corner faces the street and driveway:
The first floor’s master bedroom suite has a street-view window:
The bathroom punches up the floor with two-toned diagonal tilework next to that possibly-TMI tub:
Across from the high-rise fireplace, there’s a faux clock tower capping the balcony railing:
The second floor has 2 other bedrooms, extra space currently doing duty as a game room, and another bathroom with dual vanity. (There’s also a half-bath downstairs somewhere.)
By the pool, located on the north side of the 8,400-sq.ft. lot, a breezeway runs adjacent to the 2-car detached garage.
