This was our first of four homes we’ve designed to date on Suffolk Drive in Oak Estates. Oak Estates is a highly sought after small neighborhood in Houston within walking distance of Highland Village – a high end shopping and dining district. Suffolk Drive is on the outer bounds of the neighborhood and offers the challenge of having railroad tracks to the rear. We used a courtyard design to help minimize the noise of the passing trains. All living areas and the mater bedroom face the courtyard for natural light and to enjoy the courtyard landscaping. The home was one of our early transitional designs – melding elements of both traditional and modern architecture into a great family home.
