Swamplot Sponsor: This 2-Bedroom Converted Lawnmower Repair Shop in the Heights

Today’s sponsor is the unique home at 402 E. 25th St. in the Houston Heights. Thanks for supporting Swamplot!

From 1957 to the 1990s, the small commercial building at the corner of Arlington and E. 25th St. served as a lawnmower and small-engine repair shop. It’s since been converted into a 1,216-sq.-ft. 2-bedroom, 1-1/2-bath home, which is now for sale.

The home has concrete floors, exposed air ducts, and a vaulted ceiling that reaches a peak of 24 ft. The kitchen (pictured above) has been completely redone — with granite countertops, a double sink, and an island with seating for 6.

The kitchen faces the higher-ceilinged main living space; above it is a 240-sq.-ft. loft space with 2 closets in it, currently being used as a third bedroom. It’s reachable using an attached rolling library-style ladder. Out the kitchen door is a pergola-topped patio for outdoor dining; around the corner, set back from another section of the back yard, is a small separate storage building.

Oak barn-style doors mark the entrance to both the master bedroom and the master bath; a space outside the second bedroom works as an office nook.

If you’re looking for a smaller home in the Heights, you might want to check out this home. That should be easy to do this weekend, because there’s an open house this Sunday, May 21st, from 2 to 4 pm. In the meantime, you’ll find many more photos and details on the property website.
