  1. This house has been undergoing an extremely slow rennovation/restoration. It's located in Riverside Terrace on MacGregor Way overlooking the Bayou.
  2. Notice the platted grid shown in the middle of 5, 6, 9, and 10? The HCAD plat maps say that it is a subdivision called Institute Place. Aerial photos show several houses right up near the still-active Columbia Tap tracks; the owners apparently really really like palm trees. The houses look like they were built around the 1950's or 60's. But most of the platted street grid doesn't exist and the forest that once covered the platted area was scraped early last year. I've seen the acreage advertised in real estate marketing materials as something vague which is "Coming Soon!" but don't know anything else about the history or future of Institute Place. Anybody else out there have information? http://www.hcad.org/iMaps/Pages/5354B.gif
  3. I've been in Riverside all my life, and my parents have lived in the neighborhood since 1979. My mom is a native Houstonian (from Studewood), but I've never heard her, or anyone for that matter refer to any part of the area as "Sugar Hill". I came across that while reading a portion of the Winter 1981 edition of a journal published about the desegregation of the Riverside/Riverside Terrace/Washington Terrace areas. So, where exactly is "Sugar Hill" in Riverside?
  4. A great town home that has an usually large private green space, great for someone who prefers a town house but needs a little more yard for a pet. $224,900 2605 Calumet
  5. Many of you may have seen my previous post offering $500 for the "this is our home, its not for sale" video. The reason I offered so much was becuase I was buying a house in the Neighborhood. Actually the house is on the west side of 288 and the neighborhood is called Almeda Place. My contract fell through so Im letting you guys know the house is still for sale and shes actually lowered the price to 190k. If your familiar with the area you'll know this is a STEAL!!! I've decided to tell the forum here becuase I know nobody here will knock it down and build townhomes. It was build in the 1930's, 2 story, original hardwoods, and is in pretty good shape. Its on a great streat with 2 large houses next door. I hope one of you gets it and restores it back to original shape. The owners name is Madelyn Burley and she lives next door towards almeda. If your interested I suggest you drive down there asap and meet with her. The house for sale is 1709 ruth st 77004 good luck!
  6. Does anyone have any information on this deserted mansion at 5130 S. MacGregor Way? http://farm1.static.flickr.com/176/468536333_6fd930b378.jpg Or, What about this one at 5326 Calhoun: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/215/468510957_2659561dae.jpg There is another one at around 3200 Oakmont that looks haunted. If it isn't haunted it should be. I will post that picture later in the week. Chris
  7. Already option pending but still nice to look at. May fall through though. Looks like a forclosure but with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths on half an acre inside the loop with lots of terrazo it's a steal. http://www.har.com/2224041
  8. Noticed today that a Bailey Swenson house featured in the AIA Houston guidebook was in the process of being razed after a bad fire. It was on N. MacGregor just west of the Mease hospital; if I remember correctly the Guide said "Swenson's version of the French manorial style had a definite 40's swing." It had a round turret in the front, with a shallow tile point at the top. Pretty house in its day. Hope it isn't replaced by something gross. Marty
  9. I finally saw this picture in my iphoto archive. I knew I had a picture of it. 3. 3403 N. Parkwood Dr - Willard & Hood (Lars Bang?)
