Between the Plantings of a North Montrose Townhome

Could the clipped and sculpted shrubbery outside this 1998 townhome (top) with fenced side yard have sent invasive shoots inside? A colony of photo-ready greenery appears to have taken root and taken over (above) within the otherwise cleared out corner unit, located in the Bakerdale subdivision of North Montrose, east of Montrose Blvd. near Wharton Elementary School on West Gray. The plantings aren’t the only signs of growth for the property. The asking price for the property, which earlier today was listed for a third time, is now $309,900.¬†Back in its initial listing in September 2012, the price tag was $280K, which went down to $274,900 in October. A price reduction soon thereafter to $269,900 preceded the property being withdrawn from the market the following month.

At first, the galley kitchen appears to be photosynthesis-free . . .

The home’s 2 and a half bathrooms apparently also offer optimal growing conditions:

Up on the third floor, blooms in the master bathroom (above) bring out a lilac hue on its double-sink vanity. In lieu of plantings in the adjacent master bedroom, meanwhile, the painted walls cast a greenish tint:

Ceiling fans in both bedrooms shown in the listing photos add a bit of a frond effect to space otherwise clear of foliage:

One of the bedrooms is on the ground level near the 2-car garage:
