Just over the water from First Colony’s Lake Pointe development, you’ll find this waterfront property with 110-ft. of frontage on Oyster Creek. It faces the Greater Houston Rowing Club‘s Oyster Creek boathouse; behind the home is a cul-de-sac, connecting to Sugar Lakes, an eighties-era neighborhood of mostly brick homes with a tree canopy on its winding streets — plus a neighborhood pool, playground, playing fields, and sports courts. This 1990 home was posted as a new listing earlier this month, for $545,000.

The home, just over 4,000 sq. ft., has 4 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths. Here’s the first floor master suite, with a door to the patio:
Here’s a secondary bathroom, its location unspecified in the listing:
Upstairs, this study is tucked into a back corner of the home:
And then there’s this carpeted game room, with access to a water-view balcony. It’s most prominent feature appears to be a small section of wooden flooring at the center, put in to accommodate a pool table but also suitable for a big rolling desk chair or a really small dance party:
The otherwise not-photographed second floor includes this balcony with a spiral staircase to a pergola-covered patio and a brick path to the dock. That’s Fluor’s Lake Pointe campus rising beyond the trees:
