    The build date is 1962, could that be right? I thought I was looking at mid to late 1930’s.

    Also Zillow has a few more exterior photos. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/4609-Griffing-Dr-Port-Arthur-TX-77642/50361821_zpid/

    That cool B&W bathroom can’t be from the 1960’s. Nor even most of the first B&W bath. Although some of the woodwork, as in skinny baseboards in various rooms, look like they could. Maybe a partial reno date? Lovely, graceful staircase, and entrance hall archways.

    This house has my name all over it! Just never can find anything in the Denver area like this. This house would be over $700,000+ here, and then the ones who can afford it would completely take a lot of the charm and the good stuff away. So sad 🙁

    Lovely house. I agree the house is more 1930s than 1960s. My house has the same staircase, same bath fixtures, same arched openings in the foyer except mine has 9″ baseboards and large crown moldings and picture rail moldings. But down to the lovely cabinet with glass doors, very similar! Mine was built in 1931.

    That second bathroom floor tile design is lovely! I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like it.

    I would take this house just as it is. Wish I wanted to live in Port Arthur.

    No wonder they say “things are bigger in Texas”.

    WOW. This house is gorgeous. 6 bedrooms, 7 baths and an acre, and it’s actually in a city? Love it.

    I’m looking at it on Zillow, and looking at the price history. It has been listed many times over the last ten years, without ever being sold. In August 2014, it was listed at $119,900, but now it’s marked all the way back up to $169,900. $169,900 is still a great deal for this home, I just wish I had seen it three years ago when it was $119,900. It looks very well maintained, maybe they did enough work on it to add $50K to the home’s value.

      I should also add, the gas prices here are incredibly low. $1.83 a gallon in Port Arthur. Makes up for the somewhat high property tax.

    Do we know if this house was damaged during Hurricane Harvey?
