Another First Ward vacant lot bites the dust — 1614 Weber is our TENTH Respectfully Built, new construction home in the neighborhood!
1614 Weber is nestled in the middle of a block of historic homes. So, when we got the call from Impact Church (who owned the lot at that time) saying they were ready to sell, we knew we had to infill the vacant lot with a single family home – complementing the other homes already there!
This home is a Respectfully Built, 4 bed / 2.5 bath, Craftsman style house. She measures in at 1,800 sf, and sits tall within the 5,000 sf intermediate lot. We’ve built this floor plan before (at 1305 Summer) and received tons of positive feedback for its open plan layout, good sized rooms and extra deep front porch! We also mimicked the Craftsman style columns seen on the front porch, inside the home – using the columns to distinguish between the dining area and kitchen – all part of the Craftsman-era charm!
With mature trees dotting the property and large back- and side yards, this home is an Inner-Loop oasis – green space, easy access to freeways and a 5-min drive to Downtown Houston!
Additionally, the north side of the 1600 block of Weber is protected by a City of Houston Minimum Lot Size Ordinance that prevents the sub-division of lots.
