Bright landscaping has perked up the front of an updated 1955 Shepherd Forest property, earning the property Yard of the Month status in its section of the tight-knit neighborhood, located north of the North Loop and stretching east from T.C. Jester. The home sprouted on MLS yesterday with an asking price of $260,000. Views of the bloomage from inside the home are well-shaded, though:
The home is a cozy and efficient 795 sq. ft., so the large windows might really expand the feeling of space. A 2012 overhaul replaced the electrical, plumbing, air, and heating systems, installed wooden flooring in the living room, and poured a new driveway. But pleated shades bar the picture-window views to front (above) and back:
As shown in this view from the dining area, the back yard unfolds to the north and abuts a utility easement. The home’s lot is 7,168 sq. ft.
Curtain panels drawn to the sides a bit give the kitchen window the least obstructed vista:
There’s 1 bathroom; it shares space with the home’s laundry facilities.
Both of the bedrooms measure 10 ft. by 10 ft. This one’s view is also over the top or under the folds:
