Over in Eastwood, an updated-awhile-ago 1938 Craftsman-style home 4 blocks from Metro’s coming East End rail line presents a bit of a decision. Which of the 2 cheery and cherry-red doors off the front porch leads into the living room?
Judging by the corner-ending windows in the curtained-off front room (above), it’s probably the one on the left. The vinyl-sided property, originally a duplex, was put on the market over the weekend for $275,000. The listing’s dark photos are a bit light on interior peeks. The “country kitchen” (below) gets a shout-out, however, as do the home’s original hardwood floors and higher-than-your-typical-bungalow ceilings.
That’s pretty much it. The listing describes the 3,026-st.-ft. home as having 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms (including a claw-foot tub), and a utility room. Most of the rooms appear to be 11 ft. wide, except for the 13-ft.-by-15-ft. master. HCAD indicates a 2000 remodeling.
Meanwhile, there’s a 2-story apartment. It appears to run the home’s width at the back of the 5,350-sq.-ft. lot, and leaves a smidge of lawn-covered easement to the back fence (above). Inside, there’s a kitchen and loft:
The home’s setback and some strategically placed landscaping behind the iron fence captures the front yard for R&R beyond the porch:
