Row on 25th

My neighborhood is full of this row of chic houses tucked away on 25th Street, here in the Houston Heights.  Now, don't get me wrong; I still love The Bunny Bungalow, but there is something seductive about modern structures that allude to our American architectural roots.  I also love that the architects did not design garagemahals...instead they put the 2 car in the rear of each house, taking advantage of the allies we retain in the neighborhood.

Can't you just see one furnished by Design Within Reach, the next by Ligne Roset, and the next with Grandmas antiques?

The skinney: There are five of these beauties now, but there will soon be nine.  They can be leased through Shade House Development.

  1. Very cool! My son LOVES this type of sleek, ultramodern look and I can see it fitting in much better than those garabemahals! I need to drive by 25th and have a look. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hello David,
      Thanks for dropping by. I've enjoyed all the Bungalow gardens you have photographed for your blog. Have a great summer...keep cool.


  2. sorry to disagree but i think that your 'bungalow' if far more appealing than sleek, soulless dwellings standing all the same in a row. your place has character and life, I don't get that sense with these at all. just my take on things....

  3. Thank you so dearly LYDO,

    I think that is what I feel whenever I walk into my bungalow...the soul. I felt that the first time I walked into this little house. Doing some research, I learned that another Annie lived here in 1919. She had the German surname of Schwartz. As an adult, I learned to speak German without an accent...which is quite unusual. Makes one wonder.

  4. Thanks for your blog, I just subscribe your blog. This is a nice blog..
