An Afton Oaks-Area Townhome with a Local Design Pedigree Reappears on the Market



One of the contemporary townhomes with courtyards in a 7-property subdivision dubbed West Lane Place was under contract last month but returned to the market a week ago with an asking price of $575,000 — $10K higher than the previous listing. The listing identifies the townhome’s designers as some form of the firm once known as Wilson, Morris, Crain, and Anderson — also known as the architects of the Astrodome. Courtyards, it says, are by landscape firm McDugald-Steele. The 1982 property is tucked between Afton Oaks and the railroad right-of-way east of Newcastle.



A soaring ceiling angles above the main living area, which is open to the dining room. Both spaces come with full-height steel-framed windows facing fenced-in vignettes on two sides of the 2,686-sq.-ft lot:



The kitchen, with a butcher-block-top island, also opens to an outdoor deck:


The 2,414-sq.-ft. home’s 3 bedrooms are upstairs. Here’s the master suite:



Secondary bedrooms each have an en suite bathroom:



This bedroom appears to be perched over the front door, its protruding window (pictured in the second photo from the top) shielding visitors from the elements:




The property has a $25 monthly maintenance fee.

  • ahh, the old price it low, take it off the market and put it back on the market higher than before… you know, because it worked so well the first time, surely there are more suckers, i mean buyers out there…
