At Home in a Tomball Parkway Warehouse

Is all that living space on the second floor of this metal warehouse building right off the Tomball Pkwy. frontage road near the end of Jones Rd.  really window-free? Built a decade ago, the 5,062-sq.ft. structure is an unrestricted property suitable for mixed use — and that includes homesteading.


Downstairs, a storefront window dominates the 45×75-ft.-building’s interior, which also has a high ceiling in front. One of the two half-baths downstairs is handicapped accessible.

The upstairs has living and dining areas, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, full bath, and utility room. All second-floor rooms open into the open-floor-plan main living space, which measures 18 ft. x 17 ft.:

It’s electric.

The bedrooms measure 13 ft. x 13 ft.

Listed at $660,000 since October, the warehouse home sits on a fenced 1/3-acre lot near other commercial properties and a utility tower north of Louetta Rd. Plenty of parking out front for visitors of the social or spending kind.

  • Short commute to work.

  • If they have a fire, they’re screwed.

  • It’s like a lot of homes in Asia (and likely other places too), where you live upstairs from your shop. There are even a few strip mall/condos built like that on or right off Bellaire.

  • The Listing Agent says:
    “Good opportunity to do what you want here.”

    And that really says it all

  • @ Mike, you’ll find shop-keepers living in their shops all over Houston – legal or not.
    For years, I purchased beer kegs from a particular liquor store: Three bunk-beds and a make-shift kitchenette filled the back storage room; The proprietor’s wife and kids were there all the time – sometimes in PJs.

  • From the agent comments:

    “Owner currently operating a business there that is not for sale,requests pre-approval letter to view apartment upstairs.”

    Appraisal value is $144,940.

    I realize it’s commercial, I realize it has SH-249 frontage, but it still seems a bit (or a lot) overpriced.
