Swamplot today is brought to you by the 2-story home at 306 Sylvester Rd. in Northside Village, designed by Martin Lide. We appreciate the support!
What can you expect in a home designed by Houston architect Martin Lide? An Inner Loop location, high windows, sharply pitched roofs, bright-colored exteriors, and primarily monochromatic interiors with room for art on the walls and cool porcelain-tile floors in the main spaces — all favored for their practicality and suitability for Houston homebuyers (and the particular climate they find themselves in here). You’ll find these features and more in his latest modern design: a 3-bedroom, 2-and-a-half-bath home located just west of Lindale Park.
The main living space in this home, created by Lide’s firm Sculpturesque and pictured above, looks onto a deep fenced back yard. All bedrooms are on the second floor. The master bedroom, master bath, and walk-in closet are at the back of the home; the second bedroom is situated so that it could alternately serve as a den, office, or crib room.
This stretch of Sylvester Rd. is the westward extension (past Fulton St.) of Lindale Park’s Avenue of Oaks. The home is about a 7-minute walk from the Lindale Park light-rail station (4 blocks to the south) on Houston’s Red Line. It’s a 5-minute drive from the famed Airline Farmers Market — soon to be remade as the Houston Farmers Market.
You can find additional photos of this home on the property website, and more details — including floor plans — on the property page of Martin Lide’s website. This property is being offered for sale by Boulevard Realty agent Star Massing.
