The wraparound porch of this updated 1928 bungalow in Lancaster Place lands on the side of the home on the far side of the former Fiesta Mart site 3 lots to the west, where the announced 8-story Finger apartment project (The Susanne) is about to go up. The recessed porch’s overhang shades the bedrooms that line up along the driveway, but the living and dining side of the property appears to get plenty of light — for now at least — from the west and apartment-free south. The home appeared on the market Wednesday; it has a $520,000 asking price.
HCAD indicates some remodeling took place in 1992. At some point, the wall between the living and dining room was removed to make the space all one room. And a mismatched pair of half-height walls now act as bumpers for the breakfast nook by the kitchen:
It’s a 2-bedroom, 2- bathroom home of 1,528 sq. ft. That includes the light-filled extra room with a greenhouse feel located off the master suite:
A wooden deck grabs some rays. Next door, there’s a vacant lot. This lot, which measures 6,700 sq. ft., backs up to the twenties vintage homes-turned-commercial properties along W. Alabama (just visible above the fence in the photo below). The Menil Collection is over and down a block toward Mandell St. and the H-E-B Montrose Market is just past the razed-and-fenced apartment construction zone.
