2 LOFTS + 2 FLATS + 2 GAR APTS = UPPER KIRBY VINTAGE

Property Code: MEDUSA - UPPER KIRBY

 

 
Built in the 1940s, Medusa Properties took this classic 4plex and cranked it up to 11.

The two upstairs units in the main building are lofts, with vaulted ceilings clad in metal (a la Frank Gehry), exposed brick, exposed steel i-beams, restored original hardwood floors, antiqued cabinets, stainless appliances--Bosch, Siemens, GE Profile--and killer baths with soaking tubs and overhead rainshowers. The two upstairs units share a large, sunny deck.

The downstairs units in the main building are similar to the lofts except for the vaulted ceilings--and they have etched concrete floors instead of hardwoods. Also, the downstairs units have dark, chocolate-y / espresso stained cabinetry (the upstairs units have a lighter, stripped and distressed dun colored cabinetry). The downstairs units have large, private, recycled brick patios--great for container gardening, grilling, sun bathing, etc.

The two garage apartments have also been completely re-built, with excellent eat-in kitchens, stainless & white appliances, gas ranges, quartz and stainless countertops, and hardwood floors. The baths in the garage apartment are similar to those in the main building--with soaking tubs, rainshowers, and tiled-in niches and windows.

If you are looking for a unique innerloop unit with character--the antithesis of the econobox "luxury" apartments sprouting up all over town like weeds--these units might be a perfect fit for you.

Sweet GARAGE APARTMENT behind restored Mid-Century Modern 4plex in heart of the Upper Kirby District (Kirby & Richmond area). Walking distance to dozens and dozens of shops and restaurants and cafes, Whole Foods, Borders, etc.

Restored, owned & managed by Medusa Properties. (www.medusaproperties.com)

Hardwood floors. Excellent kitchen & bath. Big closet. Central A/C! Free laundry on site. Off-street parking. Stainless & white appliances. Gas range. New windows & doors. Fully insulated for energy efficiency. (Current tenant brags about average electric bills in the $35 to $40 range!)

Garage apartments are usually an afterthought--a cheap thrown together unit for the lower end of the market. This apartment is definitely not that. Planned, designed, and built as nicely as any other unit on the property--perhaps even nicer.

Check out the big soaking tub, the overhead rainshower, the BIG bathroom with vintage basketweave pattern on the floor and huge mirror.

Nice details like the open floor plan and natural quartz counters, deep, commercial style custom stainless sink in the kitchen.

Lots of detailed pics below!
