So you think this week’s Neighborhood Guessing Game is tough? Sure it is. But it’s not impossible.
You want to see impossible? Try guessing the neighborhood of the home shown in these photos. This is a home we decided not to use for this week’s contest . . . for, uh, reasons that should become clear when you read all the way to the end of this post.
But don’t do that just yet!
Look at the photos of the interior below, after the jump . . . but stop scrolling before you get all the way to the bottom, so you can spend a minute or so testing yourself, to see if you’re the kind of Houston real-estate savant who really could figure out this home’s location, just by viewing images of the inside.
Swamplot readers are very sharp . . . but this has got to be impossible. Without seeing the pictures of the exterior (added at the very end), there’s no way you’d ever be able to identify the correct neighborhood. Well, okay — you might just get lucky. But there’s no way to figure it out, really.

And the answer is . . . Well, first have a look at the property from outside:
And smile as we tell you that this place is in Brookesmith. A 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 928-square-foot home at 701 Archer St., built in 1920. Available for $234,900 (reduced from $249,000; first listed in late February). And it’s been, uh . . . redone.
This week’s contest can’t be that hard, can it?
