Glass Block Jewelry Shop on a Block of Upper Kirby Asks $799K


It’s a different kind of ice house on this corner: A sparkle finish fittingly fashions a gem-like setting for the Quenton Elliott custom jewelry store in Upper Kirby’s Ferndale neighborhood. Stacks of glass block encapsulate the property, which anchors the furnishings end of a semi-retail block. Raze or remodel, shouts the listing posted earlier this week, noting a $799K asking price. It carries no details on the 1945 building’s interior other than to note that it’s livable as a residence but likely heading toward land ho.



The listing photos feature all facets of the front exterior. HCAD indicates an original structure of 1,438 sq. ft. and a 1960 addition of 760 sq. ft., all on a 5,262-sq.-ft. lot located at the northeast corner of Ferndale and W. Alabama streets. Townhomes and galleries proliferate nearby.


Live oak branches and the iron arms of a vintage streetlamp flank the front yard, which is paved for parking.



Quenton Elliott plans to move to Sugar Land, according to a note on the store’s website.
