Neighborhood Guessing Game Over: The One That Got Away

Time’s up! But . . . there’s no winner this week. None of you got it. We’ll keep the prize — a one-year individual membership in the Rice Design Alliance — to give away another time.

Where did you think this week’s home was? Meyerland, “some schlubby little neighborhood off West Airport,” Briargrove, “the area just north of I-10, south of 11th street, east of Westcott and west of Durham,” Westbury (2 guesses), Westchase, Nottingham Forest, Oak Forest, Memorial Hollow, Lakeside Estates, Walnut Bend, off 290 and the Beltway, Thornwood, Kirkwood and Briar Forest, the Heights, Clear Lake, Friendswood, “between T.C. Jester, Ella, 11th, and 18th,” First Colony, Fondren Southwest (2 guesses), Willowbrook near S. Post Oak, Willowbend, Willow Meadows, Briarmeadow, Glenshire, “one of the generic Champions wannabe neighborhoods out near Willowbrook or Jones Road,” and “below Woodlake in the neighborhood bounded by Westheimer, Fondren, Gessner & Richmond.”

No dice.

Carol gets an honorable mention for being close, with Oak Forest.

So where is it?

  • “On the market for 3 1/2 weeks; price cut $500 on Wednesday.”

    Wow…a whole $500 price cut. I guess the sellers are really getting desperate!

  • Gus… I think Carol should get it. I don’t know neighborhoods and would have said it was in the Oak Forest area if I’d been guessing that location. Happy holiday weekend, Swampers.

  • Curious minds still wanting to know – why are the bathrooms being kept a mystery?

  • Hey, I’m good with honorable mention. I’ve got an RDA membership already!

  • Carol, I was just teasing Gus. I still cannot believe I actually won one of these a while back. Fun game.
