Last night on our way to a Super Bowl party, I spotted a gorgeous, huge home for sale in Woodland Heights – a charming, historic Houston neighborhood. It’s rare to see such large homes (this one is over 6600 SF!) in the Heights, so I looked it up on HAR to see pictures. It turns out the home is a protected landmark that was originally built by Houston developer William Wilson, founder of Woodland Heights. According to this article, the house went on to serve as a nursing home, artist commune and assisted living home after Wilson’s death. Eventually it began to deteriorate, and local residents were concerned for its demise until current owner (and realtor,) Bill Baldwin purchased the home and took on the major undertaking of its restoration.
Here are some pictures of the beautiful, historic home. For Before and After pics, click here.
Former basement converted to a Wine Cellar – brilliant!
I love the history behind the home, and how the renovators maintained the original design. And think, for only $2.1 MM it can be yours!
