Yeah, we know what’s been on your mind this afternoon and evening: Just where is that house from this week’s Neighborhood Guessing Game?
You guessed: Friendswood, Meyerland, and Old Braeswood. We had 2 for Tealwood, 2 votes for Memorial close to Voss, 2 for the Memorial Villages closer to Beltway 8 than Voss, 2 for River Oaks, 2 for Hunter’s Creek Village, and 3 for Tanglewood. Also: Gessner and Memorial, south of Memorial between Beltway 8 and Kirkwood, Bunker Hill, close-in Memorial, the Westcott area between Memorial and Washington, Memorial between Chimney Rock and Blalock, one of the Memorial Villages, Piney Point Village, and Indian Creek.
That’s a lot of Memorial! Thank you, Jeff, for simply framing the question:
This HAS to be Memorial Villages. But which one?
The win goes to K, who knows her Villages . . . and maybe a little somethin’ about Houston in the seventies:
Definitely Memorial Villages. You can tell by the heavily wooded lot and the size of the home for the year it was built (1970s). This was someoneâ€™s swank, possibly key-party-ish pad back in the booming 70s when all the richies were building their huge new homes in the Villages. I say Piney Point. Itâ€™s too modern for Bunker Hill, and has too many trees for Hilshire Village or Spring Valley, but this looks exactly like something youâ€™d run across in Piney Point.
Special honors go to David W, for leading off the guessing confidently in exactly the wrong direction:
Go 70â€™s – love all the angles. This house looks like it was expensively built but hasnâ€™t been updated to much except maybe the glass block in the master bath – vintage Sub-Zero, big rooms, and nice courtyard out back. Clearly mature vegetation outside – Iâ€™m thinking Friendswood.
Yes, David W knew this house — and wrote to us about it. Did he throw you off?
After the jump: the big reveal!
