Perhaps the most cozy and central part of this Woodland Heights bungalow is the family room nestled in the middle of the home.  It has direct access to the first floor full bath, dining room, primary bedroom suite and the deck.
The second living/family room readily accommodates big, comfy furniture.  The windows overlook the driveway and the stairs lead to the primary bedroom suite.  The plantation shutters are one of a number of thoughtful upgrades added by the current owners.
The door to the left at the far end of the family room leads to the full guest bath, and the door to the right to the dining room, kitchen and living room.  There is also direct access to the deck.
This really is a great space for relaxing!
The kitchen was so thoughtfully and beautifully updated by the current owners.  Cabinet space is absolutely maximized and the finishes are sleek and neutral, including that fabulous white farm sink. The window to the left overlooks tree lined Wendel St.
There is extensive counter space here, though is potentially also room for an island.
The back yard and deck are directly accessible from the kitchen.
Sitting ideally between the living and family rooms and the kitchen is the spacious and bright dining room.  It will very comfortably accommodate a rectangular or round table set up, as well as additional side furniture.  Also great walls for art!
There is wonderful light in every room of this home!

All of the windows in the home were replaced in May 2020, with the exception of two primary bedroom windows believed to have been installed at the time the primary suite was added.
One last perspective of the formal living room with the guest bedroom to the right, at the front of the home.
This lovely, quiet primary bedroom suite addition by prior owners sits at the back of the home on the second floor.  The door to the left is to a walk-in closet (which can be seen in the Matterport tour), the full bath is to the right.
This primary bedroom has wonderful light and very good space for various furniture arrangements.  Through the door to the right you can just see the handrail to the stairway leading down to the family room and main level of the home.
The primary bath was also beautifully updated by the current owners.  The oversized shower stall includes a bench and frameless glass door.
Thoughtful storage space was added with the cabinets along the east wall, and the finishes are perfectly in keeping with the 1920 era of the home.
This second bedroom comfortably accommodates a queen bed and a home office set up.  The window to the right overlooks Wendel St.
The guest bedroom sits next to the formal living room with access to the full bath.
The full bath on the first floor is quite big, with excellent storage and a classic claw foot tub/shower.
This bath is conveniently available to both the family room and guest bedroom.  Again classic finishes were carefully chosen to accentuate the historic era of this bungalow.
This Woodland Heights bungalow sits in the middle of lovely tree lined Wendel St., just blocks from the center of The Heights and all the area has to offer with regard to shopping, dining and exploring via the miles of hike and bike paths.  It's also just a 5-10 minute drive to downtown Houston.
There are so many beautiful accents on this home, from the paneled windows to the architectural front door portico to the terracotta tile of the front porch and columned stairs.  The current owners are avid gardeners, the landscaping here is just perfect.  What a pretty spot to enjoy a cool morning and coffee!
This perspective allows a view of the one car garage and long driveway.
From the kitchen walk out into this absolute oasis of a back yard!
The well designed deck leaves lots of space for lounging and dining furniture.  The double doors lead to the second living/family room.  The white door and wall add privacy to this space from the driveway.
Just beyond the fabulous deck is yard space so thoughtfully landscaped and virtually completely private.
The perfect spot to entertain and so low maintenance.
The yard is even more magical at night!
