Though it’s unlikely to find any snow outside your home during a Texas winter, that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the Danish concept of hygge, which has gained popularity in our culture recently. Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah), which means “to cherish oneself; to keep or make oneself snug” is though to be the etymological origin for the English word “hug,” and perfectly describes the embrace that this 1925-built Kessler Square Tudor offers with its loads of cozy details. 

I had no problem picturing myself in this listing from Robert Kucharski of David Griffin & Company Realtors, and if you are a fan of spaces that spill over with hygge, you’ll want to nab our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
