The three buildings listed as 6204 Main St. lie not on the tree-lined block near Rice University, but rather its mixed-use counterpart on North Main. Asking $260,000, the property includes a vacant warehouse flanked by two homes, squeezed onto a quarter-acre in the Rodgers Park area, just south of Sunset Heights and 2 blocks from Metro’s Heights Transit Center.
The warehouse anchors the southeast corner of N. Main and E. 23rd. It’s in “poor condition,” according to the listing. The adjacent houses, meanwhile, are generating rental income. They date back to the late 1920s. The dimensions of every room are described as 10 ft. x 10 ft.
Both houses have floor heaters, window air cooling units, window bars, and driveways, not garages. The 4-room house south of the warehouse lends its address to the listing package. It’s pulling $450 a month in rent, claims the seller. Around the corner at 806 E. 23rd, east of the warehouse, the other house has “four tenants that pay approximately $100.”
The rental home at 6204 N. Main St. has a driveway and a short brick wall between its front porch and the street.
The second rental home, at 806 E. 23rd St., appears to have access to a side lot.
(For a bigger slice of the block, check out its eastern half, which fronts the Studewood St. curve where it morphs into Gibbs St. It’s dominated by a fenced storage lot for vehicles. The land beneath is listed at $1.14 million for 1.14 acres that “may” include 9 lots located on both sides of Studewood at Nadine St. That listing uses 1136 Nadine St. as the property’s main address and notes the “owner may subdivide.” A previous description of the property cited 11 lots on 1.4 acres and sought $1.6 million.)
