An expansive deck with pool for physical therapy (top) links a home and its back-of-lot studio apartment at a Montrose compound, which started October as a $795K listing. Recent updates to the 1922 bungalow (above) included new AC, duct work, and wallboard. The studio space was added in 2012. Located east of Stanford St. near Lovett Blvd., the property is within walking — or rolling — distance of many neighborhood restaurants.
Bright interiors feature wheelchair accessible spaces:
There’s even enough room for the hardwood flooring to make a 90-degree turn where the living room at the front of the 1,596-sq.-ft. original home meets the dining room:
Wide pass-throughs off the dining room lead to 2 bedrooms:
The opened-up kitchen’s roll-through layout ends at double doors to the deckscape:
The listing describes the kitchen finishes as a “blank canvas” awaiting personal touches, but a lot of what’s there is already easily reached.
Ditto the master bath:
This bedroom has 2 closets — and a wall open to the dining room:
This bedroom, also 12 ft. by 14 ft., is tagged as the master:
A 1110-sq.-ft. studio (above) runs the width of the 7,550-sq.-ft. lot. (HCAD says it was built in 2008.) Its all-in-one floor plan houses another bed and bath, and there’s space for a kitchen. Sliding doors on opposing sides of the main room open to the pool area . . .
and a small back patio:
This area has kitchen plumbing:
In the bathroom, the threshold-free shower features an extensive bench:
The driveway gate’s recessed position leaves access to a parking space outside the fully fenced lot. There’s more parking by the deck, but no garage or carport.
Back in 1998, the current owner paid $198K for the property. The home was added onto in 2012.

I’ve walked by this house 1000 times. I’d have never guessed it’d be tht expensive. Montrose has gone nuts.
