You know you’ve seen this house, because it sure has turned it’s share of heads. Located on the corner of Milam and Garrett just east of Central, the home is a true show-stopper. The owners are in the architectural and design field, and they designed the home themselves after living in Japan. In fact, they were even in Japan when the house was built, so a local company handled the project: EST-11, an architectural firm. The home has never been on the market, but countless strangers (or, shall I say, admirers?) come up, take a peep inside, and asked to be let in for a look/see. Even non-Realtors!
The home is an urban contemporary with walls of glass and an abundance, maybe even an over-abundance, of natural sunlight. The floor plan is an open concept with Museum-finish smooth as a baby’s butt walls, interesting lighting for art, and a terrific entertainment flow throughout. There is even a generous outdoor area with an attached garage-workshop. I love the deck/patio that is guarded by a brightly colored fence to match the garage door. The master bath is alive and breathing with Ann Sacks tile everywhere, I do mean everywhere, and a true car-wash, walk-through shower. The second bathroom upstairs holds a stunning octagon-shaped tub. There are two huge bedrooms, two full and one-half bath, and two living areas in just under 2500 square feet. Neat neat net. There is even a utility room. First floor surfaces are polished concrete, second is walnut hardwoods. And yes, that mosaic is the garage door on the two car garage. Built in 2008, the home is perched on a small .12 acre that is way more than enough dirt for many buyers, more than enough for a garden, dogs or a spa.
I repeat, this home has never, never been on the market. And it might be on this time for all of two weeks. Briggs-Freeman Sotheby’s agent Robby Sturgeon has it listed and is marketing it for sale at $779, 000. Hot market, almost as hot as this house. And almost as hot as the folks at Inwood Mortgage when it comes to getting you a mortgage for your hot property. The mortgage brokers at Inwood have years of experience in lending, and in markets like this, they know when a client needs approval, they need it stat. Call them before you go see this house — because it’s a keeper!
