Over in Brighton Place, an earthbound 1978 home with minimalist brickwork and window detailing is finishing out the year with a freshly painted multi-surfaced interior. Its floor plan adds some extra roomage. The property’s listing earlier this week carries a $669,900 asking price.

Saltillo tile flows through the entry and what appears to be the down-a-step family room (featuring one of the 2 wood-burning fireplaces), study, and dining room:

Laminate floors and butcher-block counters align their grains in the kitchen, which has electric appliances and a heap of windows looking over the wooden deck and pool right outside:

The other door leads into an extra room with a dressed-up clerestory and a view of the yard, though it’s slightly runged-out at the moment:

The vaulted ceiling downstairs lends the stairwell some interesting airspace:

The property is located on the curve of a street, making the back of the woodsy 12,850-sq.-ft. lot wider than the front. The Spring Branch neighborhood, located east of Bingle and north of I-10, has a $300 annual maintenance fee.

  • I wonder if sealed Saltillo tile will ever make a design comeback, it always looks like such a rich warm earthy surface to me? (for “cold” tile).

    Guess the paint is all still too new for faceplates to have been reinstalled?
