Per the sellers, the house was designed with an intent to combine sustainable building practices and materials with the vibrant living requirements of a changing family. 2x6 exterior wall framing and spray foam insulation technology throughout are combined with standing seam metal roofing and a unique cementitious rain screen exterior siding panel system to prevent heat gain through the walls and roof from Houstons hot summer sun.
Cedar exterior siding helps blend both modern and natural elements to this beautiful modern home.
The first floor has custom hand-troweled and finished concrete floors, that not only look beautiful but are also extremely durable.
Per the seller, the house was built with its 3 bedrooms on the first floor, allowing those spaces to stay naturally cool throughout the day and thereby helping to make those spaces comfortably cool when the family is sleeping. The combination of these design features and high efficiency LED lighting technology, Carrier high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment, and LowE Smart sun high-efficiency windows by Anderson, provide great energy-efficiencies even in the hottest month.
Custom cabinetry provides efficient and elegant storage in the master suite.
Custom maple cabinetry was built on site for both the kitchen and master bath.
This stylish master en suite includes double vanities in the master bathroom, a separate shower with subway tiled surround, marble counter-tops, low flow duel flush toilets, rain head shower head and an accent wall with walnut paneling.
Over-sized tub provides a serene space after a busy week of work and play.
Per the husband & wife design-build team, every effort was taken when designing the house to maximize outdoor space and your connection to it, and there is no exception here.
Natural light floods the 2nd and 3rd floors through the many casement and awning windows that dot the walls.
Whether Sunday dinner or a Friday cocktail party, you'll love the opportunity to welcome your guests into this beautiful showcase.
Cook, relax, and be directly connected to family life at the same time. Entertain on the oversized Italian marble kitchen island. Read a book on the custom walnut bench nook by the gas log fireplace. Have a cocktail and watch the sunset on the deck while the kids watch a movie in the third-floor loft, which can serve as a home theater room, play area, office, or any other flex space desired.
A custom walnut over-sized sliding barn door leads to the generous second-floor deck that overlooks the generous backyard. The gas log fireplace is just another amenity that provides both style and energy efficiency.
These gorgeous custom made maple cabinets were built on site and offer ample storage space. Kitchen includes stainless steel Viking D3 appliances.

This wraparound balcony overlooks the backyard. It provides both ample space to entertain and helps connect the primary living space to the outdoors.
Per the seller, the second floor and loft have solid American Black Walnut floors finished in a water-based polyurethane that is both more health-conscious with less VoCs and that also maintains and protects the walnuts natural colors and tones.
The half bath is located just off the 3rd floor loft.
This vibrant guest bathroom is located just off the downstairs secondary bedrooms. You and your guests will appreciate the natural light that enters this space without sacrificing privacy.
Per the seller, the garage foundation and exterior walls have been designed to support a garage apartment. If a garage apartment is not on your list, a rooftop deck may also be an option. The sloped flat roof of the garage with cedar pony wall surround is ready to have a deck installed for an additional outdoor entertainment space.
The oversized 2 car garage not only provides overhead door entry from the alley behind the property but an additional overhead door provides access into the yard itself. Making those weekend projects that much more accessible. You will also find that the alleyway is both wide and paved all the way to 8th street.
This dedicated parking or storage space is located next to the garage and provides a great space to keep your boat, trailer, or third car. More importantly, per the seller, this space currently qualifies as a dedicated third parking space, which at the time of this listing is required by the City of Houston to build a garage apartment or other auxiliary dwelling on your property.
Follow the brightly lit central hallway downstairs out to the back yard and youll find a truly rare sight for the Heights: a real backyard! Once there, check out the custom raised cedar planter box with mature almond verbena and persimmon trees. Youll also find a brightly colored pallet fort painted by the owner's children and ample grass area for playing or for installing that pool youve always wanted. You'll also find two mature fruit-bearing fig trees and flowering vitex trees.
