From its extensive upper (top) and lower porches facing Upper Galveston Bay to a pair of double-bay garages, an updated 1970 Kemah Heights home finished in sea foam shades duplicates many of its open floor plan’s features. The bi-level property, located a few blocks south of the Kemah Boardwalk, has 2 courtyards, a pier, quarters, a boat house, and a $998,950 asking price on its listing.
Inside, tile is the flooring of choice, even for the winding stairs (above). The lower level’s living area spans much of the width of the 4,013-sq.-ft. home . . .
and has a wall of windows. Glass panel doors in the view-finding mix provide access to the lower porch:
Shelving tucked into an alcove downstairs marks the side of the shared room currently used as an office:
Upstairs, tiles in the galley-style kitchen, which appears to be updated, are placed on the diagonal:

These pastel painted rooms appear to be the quarters; they include a living area with kitchenette:

I don’t even want to think about the insurance bill on this place.
The “Heights” moniker for non-Heights real estate has officially jumped the shark. This property on on the water. Nothing high about it. Except for the insurance. ;)
You couldn’t pay me to live a couple blocks from the money-sucking Kemah Boardwalk.
A million dollars for a home with a metal banister/ballusters ?
If only my everyday eyesight was in HDR.
