Lovely Bones

This 1913 corner lot beauty has smokin' period details, oversized doors and expansive porches that make my heart sing. With a little love and sweat equity, I could see the house of my Houston dreams in these lovely bones.

This kills me, KILLS ME! A $575k house where I live would be a teardown. *sigh* If my entire family didn't live here I would totally pack up and move to Houston.

THIS is GORGEOUS. Couldn't you just move yourself right in??? I COULD! Love the wide-open spaces and that porch is a dream. As I type, I'm virtually arranging my furniture in this home.

Wow, this is an incredible home. I would venture to say that you would make it look totally stunning. I adore that humongous porch...you could have a town dance off there!

Wow, what a gorgeous house. I'd kill for a porch like that. That porch is bigger than my apartment! Ok, just kidding, but almost...

So many houses around here have that charming open, country feel to them. At first I hated it, now I am falling for it.

According to HAR MLS, someone is making this one their own. It is under contract. Great houses find their owners.

oh my...that front porch and glass entry are insane! and that price - don't even get me started - so good compared to where I live.

AT said...

The windows around and in the front doors. That's where it got me. Sigh.

Gorgeous. I could have some fun with that place! The entry is enough to close the deal for me...

shortly after my husband took a job here i discovered your blog-and then saw your house for rent on craigslist (loved it). i have now concluded that we would certainly be friends if you still lived here since i was just drooling over that same house on HAR :)

hope you are enjoying your new and exciting adventure!
