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!
