This is one of those Real Estate sleepers you might not think about giving a second glance at first blush. I mean, best spot on the block between West Greenway and Inwood and yes, the front door is Feng Sui red and all, but the home was built in 1948 on a humongous Greenway Parks lot that is almost half an acre in garden-bursting size.
But, like Christopher Columbus, those red-brick exteriors hint at a little darkness inside, right?
WRONG! Surprise, surprise, look what is inside: white-washed wood floors, creamy white and gray walls, and lightness everywhere. The 3473 square foot home has three bedrooms, three full baths and one powder, and three living areas. The kitchen is pure white, could use updating, but not bad at all. There is a garden room that was added on at a later date, featuring a pretty, tongue-in-groove wood cathedral ceiling. And there are quarters.
The outside is a veritable water playground, with huge pool and trees. Then like frosting on a fabulous cake, there are those aforementioned guest quarters with a small kitchen.
Even better: the home has been reduced in price from $1,785,000 to $1,699,000. $498. a square foot in hotter-than-hell Greenway. Why has no one snapped it up?
