This home in the River Oaks area is ideal as a starter home, home, or "pied-a-terre". Perfect for someone desiring a stylish home “on the ground” level. The floor plan centers around an interior atrium. Front room features a study or den area, which flows to a large living area. Nicely updated kitchen with stone countertops and stainless appliances. Primary bedroom offers a walk-in closet, en-suite bath, and access to an adjacent extra room that can serve as a home office; or convert to an additional bedroom. Floors are a mixture of parquet hardwoods and terra cotta tile. Generous backyard slate patio for outdoor entertaining. Situated on a 6,100 sq. ft. lot (per HCAD) on the corner of Persa and Avalon, this site would also be ideal for building one single family home. The home in its current state needs some love!
