Atop a Tinted Live-Work Pad in Silber Terrace



It’s not exactly over the rainbow, but a tinted-window office over the garage of a 1959 property in Silber Terrace does catch a groovy UV glow. The ranch-style home morphed at some point into a live-work spread on an oversized, unrestricted lot fronting Antoine Dr.’s southbound lane north of I-10. Beyond the back yard’s treeline, Woodlawn Cemetery extends westward views. This mid-November listing comes with a $775,000 asking price.



The entry off the gated driveway and turning basin (with carport) is implied in the photo above, which also shows a hallway to a wing of  carpeted bedrooms. Meanwhile, a set of French doors open into what the listing pegs as the study, which gets the back-of-house view across the patio-deck area and grounds. The living areas’ wooden floors give way to tile in the dining room and nearby kitchen found just past another set of room-dividing French doors:


Black borders add some edge to the storage and prep counters found in the kitchen:



The window over the sink looks into space separating the home from the 2-car garage:


Many of the rooms now sport a heavy cornice with uplighting. This view of an interior space tricked out with shelving and several workstations also shows the flow of former bedrooms opening into each other:


Here’s the master bedroom:


This space looks just like the master bedroom, but it’s not:


The doppelganger rooms with matching sets of French doors access the same patio and deck assemblage:


HCAD indicates a 1996 remodeling of the 3,259-sq.-ft. home and provides the lot size (17,877 sq. ft.) not included in the listing. 


Meanwhile, over the 2-car garage, the former quarters bask in that purpled haze. The tilt-topped venue has its own entrance, a balcony over the gated driveway, windows (some with transoms) on 3 sides . . .


and a “rooftoop terrace,” which appears to mean the main home’s adjacent roof itself:
