Back in February, this 1970 Westhaven Estates home on a skinny lot fronting Woodway Dr. sold for $450,000. With its gray-scaled overhaul complete, the property with porch, patios, and pool re-appeared on the market last week with a one-digit-longer asking price: $1,295,000.
The original entry gates now open into a tidied-up front courtyard with a little fresh landscaping. A pergola semi-protects the short trek to the front doors, which face north.
Decorative glass panels still help light the foyer, but the wood finish of choice now serves espresso (above) instead of the earlier pecan (at right). Wood-altering renovations also ditched the foyer’s lattice-entertain-you accent wall, replaced hardwood floors with tile, and whitewashed the stairwell railings to better blend into the new scheme of things. That scheme is almost monochromatic, but not beige:
A wall of full-height windows and doors in the living and dining rooms faces a side patio. The open floor plan is shown free of furnishings in the listing photos, though theÂ chandelier and mirrors in the dining room appear to have made the cut.
Here’s a peek at the zesty color schemes found in the previous listing:
The galley kitchen is all sleek and silvery now, with a little more storage now that the upper cabinets extend to the 9-ft. ceiling:
The 3,442-sq.-ft. home has 4 or 5 bedrooms and 3 and a half bathrooms. Here’s one on the first floor as it currently looks . . .
and where things started:
This bedroom appears to be the master suite; it’s in the part of the home that has a second story:
The reduced, wintery hues of the home make the cobalt tiles on the side patio’s fountain really pop:
The deep lot, about a quarter of an acre, has a pool. Beyond the ivy-covered wall appears to be the 2-car attached garage and driveway, accessed by a service alley fronting nearby Potomac St. There’s also a way in off Woodway, the listing says.
This year’s redo isn’t the home’s first. HCAD records show the home received an overhaul in 1990.
