A deep-lot pocket of Oak Forest near White Oak Bayou appears to have escaped the area’s new-build frenzy, getting some second-story work instead. This property, for example, added an upstairs master suite with pool-view porch as part of a previous overhaul. The 1955 home landed on the market last month and has a $499,000 price tag. It last sold in 2009 for $359,190, just a tad higher than the $359K asking price.
HCAD records indicate some remodeling took place in 2007. The upper addition’s hovering staircase (above) hugs one of the walls in the dining area of the all-in-one main room.
Two bedrooms remain on the first floor of the 1,921-sq.-ft. home, which has 3 full bathrooms with travertine tiles and granite countertops.
The back-of-house bedroom downstairs has been serving as the master (above), however the aerie also acts as one, the listing says:
The bathroom’s single-sink vanity is open to the bedroom and located between the walk-in closet (with door) and curtained-off toilet and tub-with-shower:
The porch as well as the bedroom’s wall of windows go long in their north view across the pool, its patio, the detached garage, and a fenced-in yard the listing pegs as large for the neighborhood.
The lot is 12,109 sq. ft. and located on a tree-lined street north of 43rd St. and 4 homes east of T.C. Jester Blvd.
