The furnishings and perennial planting changed between this home’s two most recent homeowners, but that’s about it for this back-on-the-market Woodson Place bungalow.

The porch swing is a holdover from an earlier owner. There have been five of them this millennium. In 2001, the home sold for $230,000.
Despite a 1994 remodeling and subsequent updating, the home kept its 2 bedroom, 2-bath floor plan. Sleeping quarters open off the all-in-one living-dining room, which has an exposed brick fireplace between built-ins — and a lot of double-windows.

Beyond the pool fence is a driveway stub with automated gate:
HCAD says the finished attic accounts for 250 sq. ft. of the home’s 1,478-sq.-ft. total.
