Beautiful, sunlit, lovingly-restored 1927 Riverside Terrace home with chef's kitchen, spacious living areas, original hardwood floors, four bedrooms, and a yard full of young fruit trees and herbs.

You could hardly ask for a better location--we're minutes from the Medical Center, Museum District, Midtown, Downtown and freeways to take you anywhere in town.

I hope that my home will be your haven to rest, relax, and reenergize during your time in Houston. I look forward to hosting you!

Жилье

My home was built by the Guardian Trust Company in 1927 and was owned by Travis Holland before being sold to Vesta Mae Marvles, better known simply as Beauty, who passed the home on to her nephew, a gospel choir director. I'm told a piano used to sit just inside the front door, and it wasn't unusual for Aretha Franklin or CeCe Winans to pass through.

I've lovingly restored the house in keeping with its original character, and the result is a home filled with positive energy, sunlight, art, artifacts, antiques, handicrafts from my travels, and hand-woven rugs.

The front room runs the width of the house and has three pairs of French doors that open up to a Juliet balcony facing the front yard. There’s a wood-burning fireplace with a reading nook, a seating area with a comfy mid-century sectional and a hand-cranked 1928 Brunswick Panatrope record player. There are dozens of records in the burl Art Deco cocktail cabinet across the room if you want to give it a spin.

Downstairs is perfect for groups to gather or spread out—it’s open enough for everyone to socialize across the kitchen and living rooms, but not so open that you can’t find a quiet reading nook or cozy up to the wood-burning fireplace if it's cold out.

The eat-in kitchen is the heart of the house and a joy to cook in. Whip up large meals on the six-burner Thermador gas range and bake away in the Miele convection oven. A second prep sink makes it easily for multiple people to work around each other.

The kitchen is fully stocked with small appliances, including a Cusinart stand mixer, Cuisinart coffee maker and Vitamix blender, as well as cooking utensils, pots, pans and bakeware. You’ll also find basics such as coffee, tea, olive oil, butter and spices.

Tucked into the corner of the kitchen is a comfy bench seat (my favorite place for an afternoon nap!) and an antique wood dining table that expands to accommodate ten.

The dining nook opens into the living room, with a down-filled couch (also a great place for a catnap!) and a 60” Samsung Smart TV with complimentary Netflix, HBO GO and Amazon Prime Video.

The half bath under the stairs has handmade Moroccan tile, an antique marble vanity, and a full first-aid kit in case of accidents.


| Bedrooms |

All four bedrooms have comfy hotel-quality mattresses, white linens and mid-weight down alternative comforters. There’s a ceiling fan in each room, as well as a good-sized closet with hangers.

- Master Bedroom: 1 queen bed
- Southwest bedroom: 1 queen bed
- Southeast bedroom: 1 double XL bed
- East bedroom: 2 twin XL beds, which can be joined to form 1 king bed upon request


| Bathrooms |

The master bedroom has its own bathroom with handmade tile, Kohler fixtures, a European-style Toto toilet, two sinks, and three showerheads (regular, rain and hose).

The other three bedrooms share the second full bath, which also had handmade tile, two showerheads, Kohler fixtures, and a dual-flush toilet.

Bathrooms are stocked with large bath sheets, hand towels and wash cloths.

Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle shampoo, conditioner and body wash made with organic botanicals, including tea tree oil, peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary, and thyme are provided in both showers. There’s also a salon-quality Solano blow dryer in the master bathroom.


| Laundry |

There’s a stacked LG High Efficiency washer and dryer pair at the top of the stairs and laundry essentials such as detergent, Oxiclean and Washing Soda, an iron and a small ironing board.

Доступно гостям

The house sits on a large, lush lot with a fully-fenced backyard. The yard is shared with a garage apartment behind the house that originally served as the servant’s quarters. I live in the upstairs unit, and the downstairs unit is also listed on Airbnb.

The bricked patio at the back of the house has a picnic table and is covered with a cedar pergola strung with café lights and is a great place to relax in the evening.

The yard is full of fruit trees and raised beds with organically grown vegetables. The trees are still youngsters and haven’t hit their fruit-bearing peak, but depending on when you visit, you may be able to harvest kale, chard, butternut squash, potatoes, tomatoes, raspberries, okra, or herbs from the garden.

Right now, blackberries are ripening on the vine and the echinacea’s in bloom, which makes a wonderful tea. I like to grab a few kale and chard leaves in the morning and throw them into the Vitamix to make a green smoothie.

Bianca was a tremendous host because she was responsive and very willing to help when we asked. The place is so cool with a ton of character and class. We can’t wait till we come back to Houston again and stay at Bianca’s place!

Bianca's place is great for a large group to stay. It is centrally located, near downtown & medical center. The bedrooms are great! She did a fantastic job with the renovation. All the communication with her was timely and clear. I would definitely recommend her place to people visiting Houston.

Bianca was a perfect host! The space was clean, cozy, and even more impressive than the already-impressive photos presented it as! We booked this space for 4 employees who were in the area for work. This was a MAJOR improvement to booking a hotel as our staff felt at home and were able to truly relax after long days in the field. Bianca was quick to respond to my many questions and even helped us extend the trip by a day when we needed to stay longer. If you're between this listing and another, do yourself a favor and just book with Bianca now :).

WOW. This house is just a perfectly curated home. The attention to detail was amazing. We rented both houses for a weekend wedding for a group of our friends. This was a great home base for the group, and it provided us with plenty of space and privacy for all of the couples. Great sense of security here. Would recommend to anyone looking for a large group looking for a central house in Houston.
