It’s one and done for this wee 1-story, 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom home with 1-bay garage in the Westway Courtyard Homes development of Spring Branch. (This single-minded 1979-built home did opt for twice the driveway, however.) Still, it’s the smallest home among double-decker neighbors. Arizona-style landscaping also sets the extensively “renewed” address apart from others in the community of 329 efficiently proportioned homes located north of Clay Rd. near Gessner Rd. This pint-sized property appeared on the market in late November and has a $81,105 asking price.
Is it cozy or cramped? Even at 844 sq. ft., the home’s layout has opted for rooms, not an open plan. To change up the box a bit, the living room has a half-vaulted ceiling that intersects a wood-paneled wall set on a diagonal and housing the fireplace:
The door pictured below leads to the garage, also home to the utility area:
A service window helps throw some light into the galley kitchen:
Cabinets and appliances line up on either side of the runway between counters:
Shorter chefs will get a view across the front room and out the windows:
The listing mentions several updates: plumbing, interior paint, air and heating systems, laminate wide-plank flooring, roof, and garage door. And energy-efficient windows, as the still-stickered sliding glass door displays in the dining room — or is it the breakfast nook?
Here’s the bedroom, its windows taking cover in corners of one wall:
The only bathroom has two rooms:
The bi-level patio tucked into the 2,275-sq.-ft. lot isn’t much larger than the access to it. Pavers indicate the narrow setback between homes:
The slight jog in the front elevation makes a little room for a small garden beneath a pergola:
The back yard’s current crop is more a pebble garden:
There’s more room to work up an outdoor workout in the community’s shared commons (with a jogging trail, open areas, tennis courts, and a pool), which is 2 only-slightly-larger homes away.
