Swamplot Sponsor: This Converted 1915 Home in Avondale West

405 Avondale St., Avondale West Historic District, Montrose, Houston

Today’s sponsor is a 100-plus-year-old home in Montrose’s Avondale neighborhood that’s been converted for use as a photography studio. 405 Avondale St., Swamplot appreciates your support!

Would you keep this 1915-vintage property in the Avondale West Historic District as a commercial space — or convert it back to a home? Either way could work, or maybe even a little of both — if you turn the main house back to a house but decide to use the separate 2-level studio building in back as a workshop, gallery, or office space. The studio building has its own full bathroom; the entire lot measures 9,800 sq. ft.

Inside the 2-story original house at the front of the lot you’ll find original wood floors, dark-stained ceiling beams in the main living spaces, 3 bedrooms, and 4 fireplaces. A small courtyard sits between the 2 buildings; in front are parking spaces for visitors. With the Avondale address come dozens of fine restaurants, coffee shops, and other Montrose attractions only a couple of blocks’ walk away.

Head on over to the property website to see just how close to the heart of Montrose 405 Avondale is; you’ll find more details about the property there, along with great photos of its many interesting spaces.

Let Swamplot readers in on your real estate secrets. Here’s how to get on board as a Swamplot Sponsor.
