Was the open house of this grand-scale 1993 patio home near Memorial Park planned for this coming Sunday afternoon strategically timed for just after the rolling street closures of the 2014 Chevron Houston Marathon? Access to the enclave neighborhood off Memorial Drive falls between marathon miles 20 and 21. The property, asking $1.2 million, is in Arlington Terrace, or so reads the legal description in its listing earlier this month. Neighborhood signage says Arlington Court.

On a few maps, this false-shutter-and-keystone-bedecked Arlington Court home appears to occupy a lot at the corner of E. Terrace Dr. and E. Terrace Dr. One of those streets, however, is just a stub serving 4 driveways within the enclave development just east of Memorial Park. The property is one lot in from the Memorial Dr. entry of the ungated-but-guarded neighborhood. That puts it on the block-long main drag — the only straight shot in the community of mostly front-loading, 2-story homes lining winding roads, a cul-de-sac, and one loopdeloop. (One interior street discreetly ties into Crestwood Dr. and its by-the-bayou estates.) Listed last week at $1,295,000, this property with a side-loading double driveway previously changed hands in April 2009 for $1 million and change.
