The home at 205 E. 5th St. in the Houston Heights is sponsoring this site today. Swamplot appreciates the support!
The main living spaces in this home in the Houston Heights South Historic District are on the second floor. The ground-floor entry leads to a gated yard. Up the front stairs from that yard is the second-floor front door, which opens to a screened porch. From there follow the formal living room and dining room (seen in the photo at top); a bookshelf-lined library or study connected by a pair of French doors to the dining room has a gas-burning fireplace and a window seat tucked between shelving units. A breakfast room with custom china cabinets (pictured above) sits between the kitchen and a den.
The master suite, on the first floor, has private access to the side porch and yard and includes a flex room suitable for an office or workout space. A walk-in closet includes built-in cabinets and shelving; the master bath has sinks incorporated into 2 separate antique vanities, along with a claw-foot tub and separate shower. The 2 secondary bedrooms on the third floor each have vaulted ceilings.
The entire 3-bedroom, 2-1/2-bath, 3,888-sq.-ft. home was transformed from an original bungalow by Heights renovation specialists Bungalow Revival. It’s sited just less than 2 blocks away from local dining favorites Coltivare, Revival Market, and Lee’s Fried Chicken and Donuts.
