Today’s sponsor is the home at 2228 Colquitt St. in Colquitt Court. Thanks for supporting Swamplot!
Houston architect Scott Ballard designed several homes on the block of Colquitt St. between Greenbriar and Morningside Dr., but he created this 3-bedroom, 3-bath on that street for himself and his family in 2000. The coastal live oaks on the 12,155-sq.-ft. lot have grown even bigger since then. The main living spaces are on the second floor (see photo above), but they connect to the back yard through a deck and light stairway leading straight to the pool. A master suite, also overlooking the back yard and pool, is on the third floor.
The upper floors are made from 1×6 tongue-and-groove pine; the home features floor-to-ceiling windows, limestone countertops, and several balconies. A story about the home’s construction, written by Ballard, was featured in the May 2003 issue of Fine Homebuilding magazine.
You can see more views, and information about the home, on the property website. It’s listed for sale by New Leaf Real Estate, which offers unique savings programs for both sellers and buyers.
