About the Property

Charming 2100 Sq Ft 2-story Townhome.

*****Home selected in 2015 as the setting of a single location feature film by Writer-Director Todd L. Green. Actors include Stelio Savante (Eisenstein In Guanajuato, The Making Of The Mob: New York), Gideon Emery (Daredevil, Teen Wolf), and Autumn Withers (Any Day). *****
A charming, eclectically designed townhome tucked in a gem of a small community within the Energy Corridor! Enjoy your Houston vacation or business trip wrapped in the arms of my charming town home. Nestled on a tree-lined street, a warm, welcoming feeling and positive energy is felt upon entering. The layout is wonderful as all bedrooms are upstairs and separated for privacy/no shared walls. The master bedroom balcony is complete with two wrought-iron dolphin chairs, tea table, and flower boxes - an idyllic space for sipping coffee, tea or wine. The washer/dryer room is also upstairs for easy access. The master bathroom touts a brand new, gorgeous, oversized, marble, trough sink meeting the needs of two people. Beauty meets practicality as just below the sink resides easily accessible storage space for travel necessities and luxuries. Beautiful hardwoods run throughout the second story providing a warm inviting feel.

The living area embraces a vibrant white palette with pops of cobalt blue, a gorgeous hand-carved mirror, modern art, and globally eclectic furnishings. The beautiful marble counter tops coupled with tumbled marble back splash provide a natural, textural, and homey kitchen feel. Formality is not the key here. Feeling at home is my wish for you and yours. The antique hardware, and wonderfully aged, imperfectly perfect, turquoise, pantry doors with the whimsical kitchen chickens are sure to make you smile, kick off your shoes and indulge your senses.

The comfortably old is masterfully balanced with the new and unique via high ceilings, white architectural beams, beautifully ornate crown molding, creatively paired furnishings, and expansive doors that open to a magical little backyard. If you are lucky, sweet little creatures might be seen visiting the outdoor bubbling fountain for a cool drink on a warm Houston night. The town home backs up to a quiet, exclusive neighborhood with trees galore. My neighbors are wonderful and here to help if you need it. Super quiet and as quoted by everyone who's been here, 'so serene, peaceful and pretty!' Enjoy nature in the city! A 4-minute walk to Terry Hershey Park and the Kendall Library, and just a 6 minute drive to Memorial Hermann Hospital and the popular Memorial City Centre for tons of shopping, dining, theater and nightlife. Private drive, community pool, all bills paid, WIFI, and neighborhood friendly home. My home is yours while you enjoy the wonderful city of Houston! Come visit soon!

"It looks amazing! Thanks for everything!" -Green Travelers

"We like what you did with the remodeling. Kitchen looks great! Like the shelving, Pammy. The half bath updates, master bath modern trough sink, and new master flooring look smashing! Back from London in a few, see you at that time. Kiss the family." -Tommy and Jasper Travelers

"It looks absolutely wonderful and welcoming! My mom and I enjoy it a lot. :)) Also, thank you so much for the thoughtful shopping info., I am sure we will be doing a lot of that!" -Xia Travelers

"Nothing wrong with the house. We had no problems. Your artwork was fantastic! We enjoyed our stay and will be back. The highlight of our trip was watching the raccoons play in the fountain! Everyone enjoyed their entertainment. Thanks again." -Kornguth Travelers

"Wonderful! Big help for us that you provided breakfast since the travel times were unique. Thanks for the other recommendations." -Cali Travelers

'We had a great time! Thanks for speaking with us since it was our first time to use vrbo/home away. We were nervous and appreciated the time you took to answer all our questions. Thank you for your honesty about the maintenance man needing to come install batteries in two of many fire alarms. It was your first time to rent, equally nervous for you since we were your first guests, so we understood. Thanks for having us! Our friends had a super time.' -Srikanth Travelers

'Awesome! Thanks for accommodating our extra requests. The 'Diva's' enjoyed it during their tradeshow stay.' -Riley Travelers

'This is exactly what we were looking for. It's spotless and very nice. You must be an artist and travel a lot with your interesting artwork and global furniture.' 'Thank you for promptly getting the internet service provider here to fix the WiFi issue, and also the Geek Squad out to install a second computer for our use... especially since our international/Bahrain cords were troublesome.' 'Pretty. We enjoyed it and our family enjoyed staying there!' -Boyd Travelers

'It smells so fresh!' 'We loved the mediterranean fig cleaning supplies. New fans of that stuff! And we love the cheery living room with the little garden view. Such a cool and different design. Can we hire you to decorate our Austin casita for a trade? Thanks, Pammy. We felt pampered, and you were fun and easy to deal with! See you next time.' -King Travelers

Other Amenities

  • If you use the supplied iron, please also use the supplied ironing board and do not iron on the carpet. No hairdryer supplied due to frequently disappearing hairdryers. READ listing offerings, contractual agreement and policies before signing. A signature means you accept homeowner policies and respect the property and it's contents. Please be kind and respectful of wildlife. Houston is the Bayou City. Many of these beautiful creatures have visited my home for years. The possums are beneficial as they eat aphids and creepy bugs, and the two raccoons regard the local trees and 10 ft fence as a safe haven. Treats are welcome, but no petting, picking up or taunting, please. Live in harmony with nature, be respectful, logical, and enjoy their natural beauty. Animal cruelty will result in deposit forfeiture and a report to City of Houston animal organizations....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Please check out my blog for an overview about me.

Why the Owner Chose Memorial City, Houston, TX, USA:
So many reasons to enjoy my home in Houston. It's in the heart of the Energy Corridor for business travelers and those seeking employment within walking distance of the businesses in the Energy Corridor, those looking to relocate to a fantastically booming area of Houston or for those travelers desiring to be just 15 minutes from busy downtown or 10 minutes from the Galleria area. It's a mere 2 minute access to I10, and 5 minute access to Beltway 8/Sam Houston Tollway. It's a 2 minute - 15 minute drive to the following: Enterprise Car Rental, Liebmann's Deli, Fadi's Mediterranean Grill, Ruggles On The Green, Molina's, Hungry's Café, Pappadeaux's, Pappacito's, Whole Foods, Phoenicia Grocery Store, Half Price Books, Home Goods, Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx, Tuesday Morning, Target, HEB, Randalls, Lowes, Home Depot, Cornelius Garden Center, Starbucks and more! My home is perfectly situated and just close enough to the fun city buzz with the above mentioned shopping options, grocery stores, restaurants, park, malls, but still within a quiet neighborhood. Houston is a friendly, unpretentious, cultural melting pot city with a plethora of cultural activities. While it's the 4th largest US city, it maintains a small town feel as evidenced by my charming and friendly neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Nature in the city. Warm + inviting + peaceful + natural charm + a pinch of whimsy with unconventional style.
