Constructed in 1953, this renovated three-bedroom, two-bath cottage in East Hill is brimming with mid-century charm and modern upgrades. Real estate broker Larry Kuhn notes that the home is “on one of the most charming streets in East Hill, just a short walk to Bayview Park and has peek-a-boo views of Bayou Texar.” The residence includes light and bright living spaces, a gourmet kitchen, a charming dining space, a fabulous back deck and a large, privacy-fenced backyard.

Arriving at the home, the well-manicured lawn with abundant greenery is a warm welcome to guests and exudes excellent curb appeal for homeowners.

Upon entering the home a feeling of comfort and happiness is apparent throughout. “Features like the refinished hardwood floors, original windows, brick fireplace, and many original light fixtures add the perfect amount of character and balance out the modern updates and amenities. The layout of the home flows seamlessly and creates the perfect environment for family gathering and entertaining guests. It feels large and spacious but doesn't alienate any particular space,” affirms Kuhn.
