Since its beam-boosting renovation in 2009, a Briarcroft corner-lot property on an oxbow street off Chimney Rock has been listed a few times — and offered itself up as a rental property. A year-and-a-bit-long break from the market for the updated 1963 home ended earlier this month when the agent upped the asking price to $825,000 for its latest run. That’s just shy of $150K more than the previous 2 efforts, both of which gave $675,750 a shot back in 2011 and 2012. Back in 2009, though, the pre-reno property sold for $282,150. If you want to rent this home today, it’ll run you $5,850 a month.
Ceiling recesses in the opened-up living and dining areas gained exposed ribs during renovations.

Instead of burnished ceiling timbers, this secondary bedroom gets dark blades whirring on the fan:
A pair of bedrooms appears to share this double-access bathroom:
The 2,441-sq.-ft. home’s former 2-car garage currently serves as an open-air pavilion (above). The back yard features a slate patio (below) and a fence.
The lot’s spot between Chimney Rock and Yorktown St. just north of Westheimer isn’t so far from a few nearby highrise office buildings in the area.
