Ryan Home 2032 Cortlandt
Having lived in West Houston for 25 years, Mickey and Nicolle Ryan had no idea how much the Heights had to offer until they purchased this dilapidated bungalow in a foreclosure sale as an investment property. During their initial renovation, they fell in love with the chickens next door, restaurants, parks, and shopping. Ultimately, they decided to renovate the bungalow for themselves and never looked back. The smart remodel maintains the "Heightsy" bungalow appeal with historical aspects and charm but provides them the modern day conveniences they desired. The home is truly as charming as its homeowners.
Six beautiful homes, including restored or renovated historic and recently constructed properties, were featured on the 2016 Houston Heights Association Spring Home & Garden Tour. This year's theme, Harmony: Blending Past & Present, the selected homes highlight the positive changes to the Houston Heights neighborhood and represent a diverse mix of architectural styles and inviting gardens.
