Welcome to 1420 Herkimer!
This stunning two story, four bedroom home sits on a double Heights lot, 13,200 square feet.
Inside the gate beautiful landscaping in the front and a wide staircase lead to the first of three covered outside spaces.
This property feels like your own piece of the country, in central Houston.
Complete with a ceiling fan the front porch is a wonderful spot to sit comfortably and chat with a friend, read a book, or greet the day with a cup of coffee.
Upon entering this gracious home you'll find a wonderfully open living, dining and kitchen space. These gorgeous hardwood floors run throughout on both levels (with the exception of tile in the kitchen, baths and laundry).
The ample living space is anchored with a gas log fireplace, built-in cabinets (which can readily be shelved) and a TV space with component compartments.
The half bath was thoughtfully tucked in the alcove at the back middle of this picture. As well across from the bath is a coat closet, both out of the way.
There is so much space here to accomodate a larger or rectangular dining set up if desired. And the island breakfast bar will readily fit another stool or two.
Windows were carefully considered when this home was built, every space has excellent natural light.
The open kitchen is a chef's dream with incredible counter space, extra wine/beverage refrigerator, range with a vent hood and window over the double bowl sink.
Look at the tremendous counter space!
Just outside the kitchen across from the dining table is a dry bar with its own upper and lower cabinets, also an ideal spot for coffee service.
The island includes a bar sink and the microwave smartly installed below the countertop.
One last perspective of this amazing kitchen including its glass front cabinets and open shelves.
The first option for a primary suite is on the first level looking out on Herkimer St. This is a king bed with room to spare. Windows abound in this home, natural light is present in every room.
Depending on your needs this room could certainly flex as another living area on the first floor.
The bath adjoining the first primary suite has as you would expect a double bowl vanity, though also a sauna! The doorway to the right leads to the back hall, laundry room and another bedroom.
Looking back toward the primary bedroom, what a graciously spacious bathroom.
This room of course also has light as well as privacy with its oversized glass block window. The spa like space includes a separate shower stall and tub.
The dry sauna has an L shaped seating configuration, and can double as another closet (outfitted with a clothes hanging bar).
This closet is one of two in the first floor primary bedroom, located between the bath and bedroom. There is another traditional closet across from it.
Currently set up as an office, this is the second bedroom located on the first floor, at the back of the home. It has a generous closet.
As mentioned earlier, the half bath on the first floor is located discreetly across from the coat closet in an alcove.
There is above average storage in this home, in virtually every room. The laundry is no exception with abundant cabinets and a sink. Behind the curtain to the right of the window is a central vacuum system.
Upstairs you'll find a second living area/media room with access to a deep covered balcony on the Herkimer side. This room also has a gas log fireplace, built-ins, shelving and a TV cabinet.
Again with the natural light - windows and French doors the balcony!
This sectional sofa is substantial and very comfortably sits in the space. The room makes the second level of the home ideal for secondary bedrooms and a separate living area for guests, kids, live-in nanny, etc.
It's readily possible if needed this space could be walled in for a fifth bedroom, exercise room or additional office space.
The second option for a primary suite on the second level, almost exactly mirrors the same space on the first floor. Again, there is ample space for a king bed, dresser, nightstands, etc.
Looking toward the upstairs shared bath, this perspective shows the hall with the walk-in closet on the left and traditional closet across from it on the right, just before the bathroom.
The second level walk-in closet in the third bedroom/second option primary suite.
The same as downstairs, this bath offers two sinks, a vanity area and here two closets (in the first floor bath is one closet and the dry sauna).
Again, this bath almost exactly mirrors the one directly below it. This floor plan has so much flexibility. The open door to the right leads to the hall, stairway and the fourth bedroom.
While not currently closed in/private, the toilet areas in each full bath sit behind a partial wall that could easily be fully walled in with a door.
The fourth bedroom located on the second floor looks out over the yard, it's like being in a tree house. This is a queen bed.
The closet/storage space in this property borders on ridiculous, this walk-in is located in the fourth bedroom.
Walk out the back door next to the kitchen onto yet another deep covered porch, leading to the driveway and garage on the Nicholson side, as well as to the separately fenced back/side yard.
Another set of wide steps similar to the front porch adds to the grandeur of this timelessly architected property.
On the Nicholson side of the lot adjacent to the bike trail is a beautifully landscaped solace garden.
It's the perfect space to indulge your inner gardener and pass a gorgeous Fall afternoon.
The unquestionable crowning piece of 1420 Herkimer is this massive yard with a mature live oak shading a substantial part of it.
The possibilities for this space mimicking your own private park are somewhat limitless. Add a pool, putting green, dog agility course, get creative!
This home and property offer a unique sense of privacy on this quiet, residential block.
Another benefit of this huge lot is the opportunity for an (unusual) three car garage. Enter from the Nicholson side of the property.
A significant portion of the attic space in the garage is decked for yet more storage.
Exceptional space is not limited to the interior of the home. In addition to the three car garage there is multi car parking available on the gated driveway.
