Shadow-hued through and through, an updated Garden Oaks home has a floor plan that’s a bit like a slice of Neapolitan ice cream. Room functions — sleeping quarters, living areas, and food-related spaces — stripe the home in thirds. Compact but fully loaded, the property listed earlier this week at an even $249,000. It last sold in 2009, for $198,500.
Beyond the porchlet’s side-winder front door, for example, the 1,170-sq.-ft. interior’s front-to-back center cut serves up a long-and-lean living space:
The driveway side of the property, meanwhile, holds the dining room . . .
. . . and kitchen, which has been extended a bit beyond its breakfast bar on the back side:
The sink area shares its split-level counter with the 4-seater breakfast bar:
Two bedrooms hug the side yard and share the home’s single bathroom:
The lot, just shy of a quarter-acre, fronts a four-lane roadway just west of the light at Alba St.
A patio and garage-with-utility-room at the back of the fully-fenced yard fall behind an automated gate across the driveway.
