Houston Heights Lot for Sale on Waverly St.

1021 Waverly St is a 1920’s Craftsman duplex on a 5980 SF lot (45.3 ft by 132 ft deep). Although currently rented and may be a renovation candidate, the highest and best use is probably as a Houston Heights lot for sale.
What makes this lot attractive is its location. It is in Houston Heights, just below 11th St., which is a beautiful tree-lined street with lots of new/recent construction homes.

This property is for sale at $75/SF, or $448,600. MLS # 43376692

Also attractive to builders is having an alley that is paved. This is rare in the Heights; most are dirt/gravel and in disrepair. This was paved a few years back by builders on the block.

The property, shown above, currently has a drive that runs from street to paved alley. The alley was paved a few years ago after some new homes were built next door to this property. The blue house next to 1021 Waverly  is one of two contemporary Craftsman homes built by premier Heights builder, HDT Homes. Just south of those are two recent homes by another great Heights builder, Ansari Homes. I listed all 4 of those homes, so I am very familiar with this street.

Th alley behind the house is paved and has recently built homes on it.
To pave an alley is now a very expensive proposition. It has to be engineered, and drainage added. I have heard quotes of ~$30K cost. If you can find a building site with an already paved alley, it is a money-saver, and a delight to drive down.

The recent construction homes shown below are just to the north of 1021 Waverly St. I repeat…this is a great block!
