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

TheÂ 3 secondary bedrooms measureÂ 10 ft. by 10 ft., 11 ft. by 11 ft., and (just to mix it up):Â 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.
