Imagine enjoying gorgeous weather like this in the backyard oasis at 4021 Travis Street, a two-bedroom 2,271-square-foot contemporary townhome designed by AIA award-winning architect Frank Welch. This 1971-built townhome is nestled in the heart of uptown near the Katy Trail and the West Village in the Schoellkopf Suburban Heights.
