There was no furniture to ogle, but a lot of you liked this week’s contest!
Sugarland led the guesses with 5. Bellaire had 4, Katy had 3 (including one specifying Kelliwood), and so did the Energy Corridor. Champion Forest and Kingwood each had 2. The rest: West University, Mid Lane, Bay Oaks, Camp Logan, Sugar Creek, “south-ish and west-ish of the Galleria,” Jersey Village, “off Bering/Augusta between San Felipe and Woodway,” Clear Lake, Conroe, the Woodlands, “a suburb out 59 south,” Briarcroft, Champions, and Mission Bend.
The winner is karen, who pooled the helpful comments of many of you into this enthusiastic entry:
Well, you all have been very helpful! I definitely think this is a vintage â€™80s home that has had a kitchen remodel and new floors put down on the first floor. I like that library upstairs, too. Too bad they couldnâ€™t spring for a new master bath.
This home has got to be in the outer reaches and Iâ€™m guessing that theyâ€™re at the top of the market in their area. I still like Sugarland, but now weâ€™ve got to add Katy and Jersey Village to mix as well. In fact, I like Jersey Village a lot.
Jersey Village to karen: You like us. You really, really like us! Hey, didn’t karen win an earlier match too?
So what helpful comments was karen referring to? Perhaps this Houston real-estate maxim spouted by kjb434:
If all of the first floor is non-carpeted, then Iâ€™ll say itâ€™s in a flood-proned area!
. . . and this comment by David W:
Looks like late 80â€™s/early 90â€™s to me but with only a light cosmetic update. It still has corian counters and that cultured marble vanity in the bathroom but they added the kooky fans and plantation shutters. It must have been pretty expensive when new to have a Sub-Zero, but I bet it is not in a hot neighborhood or they would have invested in more updates.
. . . both of which win honorable mentions!
