Eastwood Home Tour
If you like bungalows you need to visit the 16th annual 2011 Eastwood Home Tour Oct 15th & 16th, 12:00-5:00. Tickets are $15.
Eastwood is an East End neighborhood establised in 1913 by the same developer as my neighborhood, Woodland Heights. Naturally, you will see the same predominance of Craftsman style bungalows and variations of it. There is even one home built originally from a Sears Roebuck Catalog kit.
Built in 1915, this 1900 square foot, Craftsman home was a Sears Kit Home originally owned by the architect. This home still has many of its original features including the windows, floors, lighting fixtures, and moldings. This breathtaking home was featured as the cover story in the October 2010 issue of Houston House & Home magazine.
This 1500 square foot, Craftsman-style bungalow was built in 1939 originally to house parishioners from the religious community of the Church of the Redeemer. The brick home still features beautifully ornate original light fixtures in the living, dining, and breakfast rooms. All of the windows and screens also remain and operate with the original box attic fan in the center of the home.
I will write about Eastwood homes for sale within a few days. Beautifully restored homes can be found for the low $200’s.
