Miles of Tiles in an Updated Briargrove Park Home

A tile-and-paver prone property in Briargrove Park deploys its preferred flooring on pathways, courtyards, patios — and interior rooms. Located on a quarter-acre corner lot in the middle of the neighborhood (north of Briar Forest Dr. near the West Belt), the home hit the market this week with an initial asking price of $719,900.


No windows face the front of the home. The main entrance is off the front courtyard (shown above).

Full-height mirrors proportioned like the windows they face brighten the open plan living space; contrasting dark tones, meanwhile, come from the floor tiles and redone, to-the-ceiling wooden mantel:

In the family room, the wall paneling and the scored joints in the concrete flooring both lie on the diagonal. A half-dozen windows in the back wall overlook the patio and enclosed yard:

Along with the 4 full and 2 half-baths, the kitchen got an overhaul, gaining granite counters, stainless-steel appliances, and subway tile. HCAD reports a remodel in 2007, when the property last changed hands.

The single-story home includes a tile-floor game room

You’ll find wood floors in the bedrooms. Here’s the 4,106-sq.-ft. home’s master suite:

Its bathroom features accent tiles running to the ceiling.

For the 3 other bedrooms, ceramics have been restricted to their designated bathrooms. Among the pairings:

In the bathroom for the carpeted bedroom above, a little mosaic work makes an appearance by the tub’s spout:

There’s no garage, but a mostly enclosed, 2-bay carport (pictured at left in the photo below) accessed from the cross street offers some shade, storage, and cross-current airflow:

Pavers provide a patio transition to the yard:

An open house is scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
