Crack open the rubied exterior (top) for the creamy filling (above) of this red-brick cottage finished with brick-red paint. The updated 1928 North Norhill home spent Memorial Day weekend getting itself listed, at $389,900.
A casual swing, columns, and a highfalutin cornice over the door accent the front porch, located on the 1,254-sq.-ft.-home’s east side.
Is the change in flooring (visible in the photo below) a tipoff that the front rooms switched things up at some point? The listing mentions remodeling, but doesn’t say much about what or when — and neither does HCAD. (The current owner has been there since 2005.)
Two portals off the front room get very different finishing touches (above). The one on the left, lacking the trim found elsewhere the home, leads to the dining room. The slightly arched one in the foreground frames a little hallway with access to a bedroom (tan) and bathroom (green). It also leads to the dining room (pictured below):
The kitchen-with-island has been overhauled for modern use and tastes (above). Its eat-in area tucks into what appears to be a paneled-now-painted early addition at the back of the home. Its French doors lead to the wooden deck out back.
The master is also off the kitchen. It’s the larger of the home’s 2 bedrooms and it comes with a walk-in closet . . .
built-in shelving and storage,
. . . and an oversized tub with shower:
Here’s the other bedroom and remaining bathroom:
