The Squirrel House
At 90 years old, this stands among the original homes in Idylwood. A 2015 renovation added modern lighting, including a hand-crafted dining room chandelier of industrial Edison light bulbs. And created a second-floor master suite. And also a small secret room that can be accessed only by a hidden entrance. Vintage plats of Idylwood and early Houston adorn the living room walls. And families of squirrels nest in the columns on the front porch. The recent update uncovered their stash of nuts behind the shiplap!
