From the Balcony of a White Oak Terrace Home

White Oak Bayou’s concrete-lined banks are just off the unfenced back lot of this 2006-built side-entry 2-level stucco-and-siding home on a cul-de-sac in White Oak Terrace, across T.C. Jester from Highland Park. The balcony (at right), however, faces the front and looks over the single-story roofs of its ’70s-vintage block. Other 2-story homes of the current millennium pop up across nearby cross street Bayou Vista Dr. This double-decker property hit the market earlier this month. Asking price: $215,000.


The sunny, south-facing main living space is on the second level — along with the master suite, just visible through a door beyond the built-ins. (That’s its only appearance in the listing.)

A U-shaped countertop in the kitchen includes a slight overhang for bar-height seating:

That’s it for any interior views. The listing mentions the first floor’s layout of 2 secondary bedrooms (with tile floors) and a second full bathroom. The master bathroom, meanwhile, has double sinks, a shower and a garden tub. Speaking of gardens, there’s a patch of ground near the sun-filled yard’s side fence that appears to be all prepped for planting something. The only shade in the yard appears to come from the house itself:
