Here we go with our new faster format Neighborhood Guessing Game results post: The winner of this week’s prize — free enrollment in the “Houston’s History Told Through Its Architecture” course at the Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies at Rice University — is katie. Congratulations — and many thanks to the Glasscock School for sponsoring the prize!

  • After reading about the all features. I must say it is affordable to every one.

  • I’m just curious about the “window view” in the one bedroom. Is it real or “trompe l’oeil?”

    The “guest quarters” is obviously over the garage and I assume the stairway is an additional stairway in a conversion of what was once the patio between the townhouse and the garage. Curious is a good word for this townhouse as is mish-mash. Obviously this is not the original townhouse but the townhouse afer various additions and renovations.

    Hammersmith would have been my last guess although there are some townhouses that sort of defy description once you get inside. This one certainly does.

  • Actually, the room above the garage appears to be the bedroom with the “skyscraper window” if you’ll notice that the two side-by-side windows match in the respective photos. It’s hard to say exactly what it is that makes it look like a NYC skyline view in the photo but some of the confusion is probably due to the separations between the panes and the odd shape of the window.

  • Field Trip!!

  • There are townhomes behind this that front on the “green” where the pool is so I would assume that would block a view of Galleria at least the view seen from that window.
