Somewhere under the ’80s remodeling of this angular home clad in contemporary-ish stucco and cement board lie what HCAD logs as a 1920 residence and its 1950-vintage addition. Located on a corner lot across from Reagan High School, the Houston Heights property-with-parapet hit the market Tuesday and has a $420,000 price tag.
Trees and a northern exposure seem to have provided ideal conditions for a front lawn of closely packed pavers (top). The entry (above) lies farther down the walkway under a sort of flying buttress supporting the roof deck.
An interior of white tile and white paint links the living and dining areas in a main room that plays off its angles. There’s a wooden deck, patch of patio and glimpses of grass (at right) beyond the full-height windows and sliding doors:
The galley kitchen’s door opens to the same pavers as the front:
Both bedrooms are on the second floor, each with some combination of hidey holes, vaults, beams . . .

Meanwhile, a side door and its neighboring 2-car garage front
Arlington 13th, which serves the front of the school campus.
The listing pegs the home at 1,376 sq. ft. (HCAD tacks on another 483 sq. ft. and indicates a 1983 remodeling.) Either way, the current version of the house will be open Sunday afternoon.
