Saluting cacti and other Western ware lead to a home off the range — but just a short cul-de-sac away from Memorial Dr., west of Voss Rd. And beyond the curbside get-up, it’s a puffed-up country cabin in Piney Point Village. Earlier this month, the dark-stained wooden-clad 1981 home in Ames Place debuted on the market with a $1.75 million asking price.
Outdoor greenery, viewed through the windows, provides most of the color in the mostly monochromatic home, which features several skylights on both floors. Listing pix show 360 degrees of the centrally-positioned main room, all under the surveillance of a photo-bombing stag’s head:
A niche of the main room contains the kitchen’s service window and has space for bar-height seating. HCAD records show the property was remodeled in 2004; the listing cites a recent update of the galley kitchen, located at the front of the 4,455-sq.-ft. home:
Elsewhere in the house, the wooden trim remains sedately stained. In the breakfast area, however, some of the trim has joined the desk and cabinetry for a deep color therapy session:

Upstairs, there’s a game room (above) with a few more skylights — and 3 secondary bedrooms, 2 of which get a balcony:
The covered patio off the main room downstairs combines yet more planking and just a few more skylights.
One of the screened walls is on an electric control — for more direct access to the woodlands:
The 40,000-sq.-ft. lot slopes slightly, giving the 2-car garage a level of its own:
