It’s a bit of a prickly walk past the cacti to the low-key entry of a palm-shaded 1948 Art Moderne-ish contemporary home with pool that’s available for lease in Braeswood for $4,800 per month. The residential street is located a block south of W. Holcombe Blvd. on a block west of Greenbriar Dr. that’s chock full of housing styles ranging from postwar to more recently built townhomian.
Most of the rental property’s first floor has stained concrete flooring. Could that room with glass bricks off the foyer be the camera shy powder room? In the combo living-dining room running the depth of the 3,254-sq.-ft. home, a high and horizontal recessed mirror accents the otherwise blank north face:
HCAD records indicate some sort of renovation took place in 1998, but there have been some subsequent tweaks, such as in the kitchen finishes. The room has a central location in the layout downstairs. There’s a doorway into the living room (visible in the side wall of the photo above) and a service window into the family room:
Laundry facilities found a way into a closet off the family room, or maybe that’s a cut-through . . .
to a small study with a lot of windows (and built-in shelving), placing it in a front corner:
Could this alcove have been an earlier entry into it?
The landing upstairs includes access to a westward-facing balcony that’s deep enough to cap the carport.
The 4-bedroom count depends a little on how the space gets used. The master suite, for example, has an adjacent alcove . . .
with balcony looking north over the street:
Sadly, the listing’s sole photo of the master bathroom reveals only a few blue clues to the setup.
Here’s one of the secondary bedrooms:
Another bedroom is really 2-in-1, the listing says:
Here’s the other full bathroom, shared by the secondary bedrooms upstairs:
The garage has a tandem footprint. It’s located at the back of the 8,424-sq.-ft. lot. A decorative steel panel gates the driveway near the front of the home.
Much of the back yard has a waterfront both shaded and shed on by the landscaping.
