Houston Heights Queen Anne Victorian Home

Craftsman style homes and Victorian homes are the most common style in Houston Heights. The low-slung Craftsman style came about ca 1910-1920’s in the Heights. Prior to this were the tall, more ornate Victorian homes. This 1907 Houston Heights Victorian home at 314 W 13th street, is a perfect example of the Queen Anne Victorian.

From the front of the house it is not apparent that a 600 SF addition was added to rear. Being in a historic district, keeping the front elevation original is critical.

The interior however has had a stunning transformation. See photos and details below.
