You guys are good! And better at this than you think you are. You found all the right clues to this week’s puzzle . . . the problem was just putting them together!
Before we get to our winners, your list of guesses: Oak Forest attracted 4 votes. There were 3 guesses each for Montrose and West University, and 2 each for Bellaire and Lazybrook. We had 4 separate votes for Knollwood, Timberside, Woodshire, and Stella Link. The rest went to Meyerland, Timbergrove, Clear Lake, Kemah, “something out I 45 towards the Gulf,” the Houston Ave./Sawyer/Washington area, Afton Village, Cleveland, the Heights, “that area south of Richmond, east of Shepherd but immediately north of the recessed portion of 59 over by Mt. Vernon,” Alief, and Braes Terrace.
This week’s win goes to two players: CK, who called Clear Lake:
. . . itâ€™s hard to tell if itâ€™s a street outside or lakefront.
And Joni Webb, who called Kemah:
Itâ€™s old – say 50 years, low ceilings, actually cute for once . . . mature landscaping . . . lots and lots of palm tree type plants and it could be around Kemah – those really cute old houses there. Artsy community.
For this game, Clear Lake and Kemah were close enough. Seabrook would have won it outright, and Ruggles East would have beaten that!
So . . . what were the clues? marmer picked up a few:
The craft room and living room are on the front of the house, and narrow, probably original rooms. Most everything else is an addition. Whatâ€™s with the weird bedroom with French doors and no window treatment? Do exhibitionists live here?
And so did toadfroggy:
My only thought is that those blue cabinets would never have survived in an area thatâ€™s seen much flipping, so itâ€™s unlikely to be in any of the close-in nabes if itâ€™s even in Houston at all.
. . . which earn them both honorable mentions. No interfering liars this week!
After the jump: Around and about that house!
Location: 601 Bradley St., Seabrook
Details: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths; 1,754 sq. ft. on a 25,961-sq.-ft. lot
The Scoop: Postwar ranch in Ruggles East with wide views overlooking Galveston Bay. Expansive lawn behind bulkhead; large brick patio areas in front and back outside Sunroom. Master Bedroom currently used as Sewing Room. “Also great site for new construction.” On the market for almost 11 months, but the asking price hasn’t budged.
We do this again next week . . . have a look at our post next Tuesday!
