A huge back yard, open living concept and incredible finishes in an urban setting seems to appeal to a wide-variety of buyers.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Buying old houses and rebuilding huge houses, new townhomes, or a high-rise is a popular trend in Houston. To industry insiders it’s called “scraping.” In Houston’s Inner loop, especially in the Afton Oaks neighborhood, it is not too often that people buy homes and remodel them, but this was not the case for two local homeowners working with ULR agent, Brittany Taggart.
Johnny and Brynne Montenegro decided to buy 4607 Richmond Avenue in the Afton Oaks neighborhood and completely remodel the home. According to the Harris County Appraisal District, the house was originally built in 1956 so it had a mid-century ranch feel. The couple wanted to take this old house and transform it into a modern day family home.
The original square footage of the house was 1,600sqft but after the remodel it is approximately 1,700 square feet. The couple decided to remove some walls to give the home a more “open concept” and added a master closet. They also put bamboo wood floors throughout the home and completely upgraded the kitchen to a chef’s kitchen. The couple also added a new HVAC, new plumbing, roof, sliding, energy efficient windows, and electrical all in the home. Both bathrooms were completely upgraded and had granite counters installed. The landscaping was redone and fresh plants were planted in the front and back yard.
Brittany Taggart, the ULR listing agent for the home said, “A huge back yard, open living concept and incredible finishes in an urban setting seems to appeal to a wide-variety of buyers.” The house is currently under contract.
