Relaxing on a porch swing, sipping sweet tea under a large shade tree… Sounds completely dreamy to me, which is why I absolutely adore this charming single family home in historic Houston Heights. It’s spacious while still feeling cozy, with a balanced mix of vintage charm and modern updates and serene outdoor space for days.

This is a quintessentially storybook family home, complete with porch swing, shade tree, breakfast nook and huge backyard. The home is a lovely mix of vintage and modern on a quiet street in an historic neighborhood—it’s spacious but still cozy with ample outdoor space, which is perfect for a family home.

Built in 1925, this property retains plenty of vintage charm home, but tasteful modern updates (many of the updates were done in 2015) make this a very livable home as well.
