House Hunt Sunday

Welcome to my second edition of House Hunt Sunday! This week's home is one that Aidan and I went to look at last weekend while Jason was away visiting friends. It was gorgeous and I'm bummed that he missed out on viewing it with us.

(For information on the reason for these posts, our "must list" and to view last week's home click here.)

This week's house:

A four-sided brick home with plenty of windows that let in all of that beautiful, Texas sunlight. (And is, coincidentally, right down the street from last week's house!)

The details~
Square Feet: 3139
Lot Sq Ft: 8768
Bedrooms: 4
Baths: 3 1/2
Private Study: Yes
2 Living Areas
Dining Room + Eat-in Kitchen
First Floor Master Suite
Asking price: $211,900

And now for the inside....

Walking into the home you are greeting by a light 2-story foyer with a curved staircase. To the right is this beautiful dining room, complete with tray ceiling, wet bar (which leads to the laundry room or kitchen) and moulding. To your left is the office which has its own walk-in closet.

Walking straight ahead from the foyer you enter the large Den. You pass a half bath hidden underneath the staircase on the way. I love the vaulted ceiling, wood floors and the cozy fireplace. The windows overlook a beautifully landscaped backyard.

I love how the kitchen opens up right into the Den. There is plenty of counterspace and the wetbar area is so convenient to the dining room, kitchen and Den. The double doors in the breakfast area open to reveal a large pantry.

The master suite is off of the Den. It has a gorgeous ceiling and a wall full of windows overlooking the backyard. The master bath is huge, with two separate vanities and an extremely large (8x9) walk-in closet! (Notice that the bathroom is carpeted- why do people do that?!)

A walk up the stairs leads us into the gameroom. It's large enough for couches, toys and a television for the kids. I love this space!

On one side of the gameroom is the guest quarters, complete with attached full bath. It's convenient that this room is away from the other two secondary bedrooms, giving guests their privacy. The other two bedrooms are decent sized and have their own full bathroom between them.

The backyard is an entertainer's dream. The tiled patio is covered by a gorgeous wood pergola, with plenty of room for an outdoor kitchen and seating underneath. Behind the garage is an excellent place for a dog run. The yard is large enough for a playset with room left for the kids to run around as they please. The back fence is brick, which means easy maintenance for the owners!

Pros: Great sized home, with attention to detail. I love the backyard/patio area and the large master suite.

Cons: Carpet in the master bath (what?), wallpaper (in all 4 bathrooms), and some horrid paint decisions in the secondary bedrooms. (I realize these are simply cosmetic cons, though!)

Overall, this is a wonderful home and one that we would probably make an offer on if we were looking to buy right now.

What do you think?

Happy Easter!


  1. I'm amazed that the asking price is only $211K! Holy cow!!

  2. Beautiful! Clearly you can get more for your money in TX than in Cincinnati. A house like that in a decent suburb of Cincy would be at least 150,000 more.


I'd love to know what you thought of this post! Leave your comments here. Thanks for visiting! :)
