639 Allston brings sophistication, style and a distinct New Orleans flavor to the Houston Heights. The final piece of the Summer Heights collection of Smith Family Homes, this home is clearly the gem of the development. Sitting alongside other Southern style homes gives the neighborhood a relaxed, charming appeal, but with exciting new apartments located across the street, there’s a taste of urban flair as well.

The home’s location right on the Heights Hike and Bike Trail gives it truly unique advantages in realizing the new brand of Houston’s urban luxury lifestyle. Quite simply this home is for a family with an active lifestyle. No need to plan out an adventure along the trail in advance, you’re always seconds away from a spontaneous bike ride. And an after dinner stroll along the trail is especially inviting on a glorious evening. Because the space beside the home is part of the protected trail area, it will always remain open. This creates extended yard space and allows for beautiful unobstructed views of the trail and beyond from the home’s two wraparound porches.

Once inside, the home’s sophistication and the builder’s attention to detail is very evident. This home has an impressive array of Calacatta and Carrara marble selections, adding an uncommon air of elegance to classic Southern design. Stained ceiling beams, reclaimed red oak hardwood floors and recessed LED lighting are a few other features that add to the crisp and clean aesthetic of the home.

The large dining area and adjacent wine room make the home well equipped to entertain. With space for over 300 wine bottles and a built in wine chiller, the wine room is equal parts functional and impressive. The open kitchen and great room provide a gorgeous view of the trail and make this a wonderful place for guests to gather. The wraparound porches, with their stained ceilings, ample lighting and ceiling fans will also be very popular with friends and family.
