A 1979 townhome amid Upper Kirby’s newer midrise apartment complexes comes with an atrium and roof deck, but only the patio entry off the development’s cul-de-sac has glimpses of greenery (at right). For more nature, just head over to Whole Foods. (It’s a block away.)
The retro unit has an asking price of $270,000. Its front hallway off the patio offers a straight-shot bypass of the living area — toward the galley kitchen:
A portion of counter also serves the adjacent dining area. Don’t worry, the ghostlike image of a photographer at work in the adjacent atrium is only temporary.
The utility room is also off the kitchen and has one of the unit’s cantilevered windows:
Both bedrooms are upstairs. The master suite’s tilted ceiling has a few skylights and clerestory windows. This triple window looks across the atrium below toward the roof’s wooden deck — and some apartment neighbors:

The 1,800-sq.-ft. unit has two full bathrooms and a half bath:

There’s an open house Sunday afternoon.
