Built in 1903 as a duplex, this home was already a generous size at 1,721 sf. We Respectfully Restorated her without needing to add on any sq footage. However, we did convert her from a duplex into a single family home, and now she has the cutest young couple as homeowners! We know they are enjoying the generously sized kitchen, big backyard and wide front porch!
Charming and cozy, this house oozes traditional touches that have been brought back to life – wainscoting and bead board details, original built-in kitchen cabinets, the cast iron tub and sink in the guest bathroom, French doors between the living and dining rooms, original ironing board, 2 original medicine cabinets… and so much more!
This impeccable restoration is nestled amongst other historic homes as this 1200 block of Shearn St is protected by a City of Houston Minimum Lot Size Ordinance that prevents the sub-division of the lots – keeping town home builders away!
