The HVH design team is excited about the progress on this bungalow located in 5th Ward which is one of Houston’s hottest areas undergoing rapid gentrification! This bungalow sits on a corner lot with unobstructed views of downtown Houston from the porch and is literally across the street from a brand new home the same size on the market for $249k.
Here are 2 photos of the interior…
As you can see we have outfitted this home with custom Shaker Cabinets, designer finishes and high ceilings.
If you want a vintage home that’s spacious, refined and updated perfectly this may be the one!
This 88 year old bungalow has definitely seen better days and the team here at Houston Vintage Homes couldn’t be more excited about restoring it to it’s former glory! This 3 bedroom 1 bath home is just under 1,000 sq. ft. of living space with a formal living & dining room in it’s current configuration!
Early design plans call for adding a spa-style Master Bathroom, a private deck & water garden off the Master Bedroom in addition to a total redesign and update to the exterior. As with all of our projects here at HVH it will get The Kit as we like to call which consists of all new mechanicals (Electrical, Plumbing & A/C) along with all new foundation, roof, windows, exterior siding and doors!
Now many would ask, why not just tear it down and start all over? Great question… our vision at HVH is built around restoring old homes like this back to their former glory! In our opinion, it would be a travesty to tear down a house like this when structurally the home is pretty sound! Yes, it has endured many years of deferred maintenance and lack of care but we can see tons of potential in this home and we believe that it will be a highlight in the area once it’s complete!
Stay tuned for more updates as we begin to make this home great again!
The team here at Houston Vintage Homes is beyond exciting about our forthcoming Custom Home project we are currently developing in Houston’s historic 5th Ward! This storied neighborhood is chocked full of history located in the eastern shadows of downtown Houston!
Because of it’s close proximity to downtown Houston and easy access to I-10, 59 & 610 freeways the area is undergoing a resurgence with gentrification well underway throughout!
It’s only right we position ourselves to contribute to the area’s return to prominence and we have designed a home that we believe will truly be an asset to the area and it’s future owners!
This Urban Bungalow features a spacious floorplan accented with 9 1/2 foot ceilings, solid oak hardwood floors an extensive trim and built in shelves cabinetry package. It boasts a gourmet kitchen 3 expansive bedrooms and a full fledged home office with a separate entrance and enclosed bathroom for the entrepreneur or person who works from home!
Stay tuned for more detail as we finalize the details and if you believe this sounds like the kind of place you would like to call home you may want to email us soon regarding availability at Tyron@HoustonVintageHomes.com
