How’d all this open land find itself around this deep-on-the-lot bungalow-like listing? This 2008 property is far from the higher density cottage communities in Houston Heights and its hinterlands. Rather, it’s in Pearland’s Colonial Estates, a neighborhood located west of Cabot Cove Lake and south of Magnolia St. The big-roofed home and just-plain-big garage (above) share an acre and a half fronting a straight-shot country road. Views from the front porch go deep, wide, and high (top). The recent listing asks $348,000.

The 3 secondary bedrooms measure 10 ft. by 10 ft., 11 ft. by 11 ft., and (just to mix it up): 10 ft. by 11 ft.
Meanwhile, the 3-car garage comes with a wide-open workshop:
Above the work room, there’s a play room:
Maps tag the street as one of many road segments attributed to County Road 834.
