A day after this Memorial West home hit the market late last month, its price rose by $15,000 to $465,000 — where it remained until today. Now, in honor of the new deep discounts on the iPhone 4S, it’s been cut to $425,000. The tidy ranch-style home sits upon the clipped suburban grasslands of Britmore (one “t”) Oaks, a neighborhood that appears to have pine trees and magnolias as well as the namesake oaks. Like its neighbors, It’s a mid-fifties single-story. The street is 2 blocks south of I-10 off Brittmore Rd. (2 “t”s), has drainage gulleys, dead-ends 9 homes in, and takes a bit of a jog right out front of the property.
There’s recent paint and new hardware throughout the home, which HCAD indicates was remodeled in 2000. Its front porch, tiled and edged with a rock-supply border as well as low-rise landscaping, stretches from the front door to the 2-car garage (above). To boost natural light from the northern face, the entry door has glass panels (below):
Pocket doors off the entry separate it (or not) from the living room and its carved mantle (at right). Floors throughout the home are either hardwoods or tile.
In the dining area, a divided, full-height picture window offers a view of the fenced back yard and patio, accessed from a door in the adjacent kitchen. There’s a hint of a room divider formed by the galley kitchen’s counter and hanging glass-fronted, glass-backed shelving. It’s a design feature that gets a multi-photo spread in the listing:
The home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. One of the bedrooms has French doors leading to a wooden deck on one side of the home:
The renovated master bathroom:
The second full bath retains its original sea green tile but still looks like it has been updated at some point:
A 1,611-sq.-ft. home on a 13,734- sq.-ft. lot creates a back yard something like this:
