Dog friendly? Maybe. But cats, the listing says, are a deal-breaker for leasing this 2005 patio home in a quad-plex located one street south of the Garden Oaks section between Ella Blvd. and N. Shepherd Dr. Like a quick swipe of lipstick to attract notice, a reddish zipline tops the front porch and extends around the home’s mid-section. Lawn maintenance is included in the home’s $2,850 monthly rate. So are the baby gates, kiddie locks, and a fair amount of wainscot:
The floor plan is wide open on the first level, which has hardwood flooring in the somewhat divided living and dining space at the front of the home:
In the photo above, a column hides the hallway to the kitchen:
A lip of bar-height countertop serves both the kitchen and adjacent family room. The spaces also share windows . . .
and a tad more framelike trim:
All 3 bedrooms are upstairs. The master suite includes a sitting area in the bay window at the front of the 2,575-sq.-ft. home:
In the bathroom, there’s a split vanity to handle high- and low-waisted users . . .
and a split tub-shower setup:
The master closet, however, is shared:
The secondary bedrooms . . .
each get a vanity entrance to the tub and potty:
Some of the shade in the fenced back yard comes from the covered walkway leading to the 2-car garage. Its bays open to a driveway shared with 3 other patio homes rocking the same red-lined paint scheme.
Some extra parking cozies up to landscaping next to the house, which looks north from its porch entry:
Elsewhere on the block, a long one running between Golf and Alba streets, properties are a mix of original homes, newish townhomes, and light industrial space. Despite missing the Garden Oaks subdivision by a block, the home is zoned to Garden Oaks Elementary School, located slightly northeast of this property.
