The nature of this ravine-lot home in Timbergrove Manor is looking a bit . . . reserved. Earlier this week, the woodsy property (with saltwater pool and path to a bayou-let) appeared on the market. Asking price:
$450,000 $405,000. Updates over the years have boosted the property’s energy efficiency, natural lighting, and counter space. The latter starts right off the entry . . .
The glass-paneled front door, with privacy curtain, opens into a front room currently sharing office and dining duties:
The change in flooring from hardwood to tile indicates the domain of the den:
Another pass-through office space (above) occupies the transition to the vaulted portion of the ceiling. At the back of the home’s main living space, there are glass-panel doors and a peak-hugging window offering peeks at the patio:
Counters wrap around the updated kitchen. HCAD indicates 1991 renovations, but subsequent tweaks are apparent in several parts of the home. The listing also mentions low-E windows, a tankless water heater, and an updated electrical system.
The home, measuring 1,424 sq. ft., has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The back bedroom has direct access to the patio and pool:

The 2-car garage also holds the utility room.
