When featured this nifty West Campus two-story in October, when it was listed for about the same amount, we were pretty pumped about the information, obtained via modernism enthusiast and real estate agent Creede Fitch, that it is the former home of Ann Richards. As far as we know, that’s still true, but it has since been sold and is back on the market, seemingly after only four days in the current owner’s possession.
It looks more or less the same as it did last fall, though some rooms appear to have been repainted, kind of inexplicably. Structurally, it still has some nice features of the early modern era (it was built in 1949), including big, unfussy windows and lots of natural light.
Measuring 3,036 square feet, it also features big expanses of living space with hardwood floors, Saltillo tile, original-looking built-ins, two fireplaces, and a basement. Located on of the western edge of West University/West Campus, where student housing gives way to many large, older, single-family homes, the house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Maybe best of all, the beloved former guv's old home is located on a .384-acre lot overlooking the treetops and Caswell Tennis Courts and has many outdoor living spaces, including patios, a deck, and a screened-in porch with hot tub.
