While not flashy, tweaks have tidied a 1952 rancher in Oak Forest’s section across from the White Oak Bayou Trail near T.C. Jester Park. Its listing a week ago attached am $450K asking price, up a bit from the $186K paid in 2006, when the property last changed hands. Its perky, red-painted planter full, the property is extra buffed for an open house on Sunday afternoon.
Part of the driveway’s carport covers access to the 2,028-sq.-ft. home’s side-winder entry (above), which lands visitors in front of the dining room view north toward the street:
The original flooring has been refinished; there’s also new paint and carpet in the master bedroom.
In the living room, the ceiling lifts to a half-vault
with a skylight:
Tile flooring finishes out the updated galley-style kitchen, which
does not appear to have a window. The door at the far end of the photo below leads to the side lot:
The breakfast nook lands to the side of this passage from the dining room to the living room:
Another half-vault rises in the master suite:
And there’s another skylight; it helps brighten the master bathroom:
The hallway bath, meanwhile, appears to have kept its pistachio-hued original tile:
This secondary bedroom has the front-of-house corner:
This one gets a back-of-house corner:
This one? It’s in the middle of a bed-and-bath setup occupying one side of the home:
The lot, which measures 7,480 sq. ft., opts for a sundeck, spa, and shed in its pebble-finished outback:
Neighboring homes on this block are mostly single-story original stock from the early- to mid-fifties.
