There’s a peaked roof peeking over the flat front portion supported by columns at a 1962 Westbury home that listed last week. The home’s only street-facing window (located in the kitchen’s dining nook) peers through the home’s gated entry (above). The front door, meanwhile, faces . . .
an opposing wall. Here’s how the unusual orientations play out inside, which appears to be light on natural lighting:
A family room beneath a vaulted ceiling is down a step from the foyer, kitchen-dining room, and hallway. There isn’t much to reflect on the opposite wall for now:
Here, in the kitchen-and-dining suite, is that vertical front-facing window aimed at arriving guests:
Dish washers get a long view — to sliders accessing the side yard:
The galley includes a punch-out looking into an adjacent space:
A hallway off the dinette area appears to lead to that peekaboo space — and at least one bedroom.
Could this be the study (or bedroom) with a rounded wall that’s mentioned in the listing? And was this space original to the home, or added later?
The 2,084-sq.-ft. home has 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom (above) is located near the brick-and-paneled game room. Its brick wall and window-sized built-in shelving call it out as an addition or garage conversion:
One of the 2 full bathrooms also goes with the grain:
The game room’s high, horizontal window looks over the covered deck:
Another section of roofing caps the home’s carport, which comes with a storage shed and a bumper:
Quarters, used as an office, are a quick commute down a pathway connecting it to the main house:
The outbuilding has one room. It’s 14 ft. by 33 ft. and includes a darkroom, the listing says.
When listed last week, the home’s asking price was $229,000. The property sits on 2 parcels totaling 10,458 sq. ft.; it’s been in the same family since at least 1988, HCAD records indicate. It’s located across from an AutoZone on the south side of a divided thoroughfare near its intersection with Chimney Rock Rd.
