About Corinne Maddox

Hi, I'm Corinne. I'm mostly retired from my own small consulting business in architecture and construction. I designed and built this house with apartments on the first and third floors. I love the city life with theater, museums, symphony, live music and great restaurants and night life. I also love the outdoors, hiking, gardening and birding. The location of my house is ideal for all of this.

Corinne Maddox purchased this apartment in 2016

It was nice

  • 4 of 5

I think the inside didn't look quite as nice as the pictures but the stay was pleasant. Also the neighborhood is a little sketchy. The person in charge though was really nice and helpful.

Owner's Response: Yes there are several junkie houses with lots of old cars around them a few blocks away. (I had mentioned that in my write-up.) They are very friendly nice families. My space is new with almost no use. Right before the party came, I replaced the kid oriented furniture in the large bedroom with a queen size bedroom set that's more updated. That's in the photo now.

Nearest Airport
13 Miles
Hobby Airport

Text me for directions. GPS sometimes uses a street that has recently been closed.

Minor noise from freeway and from second floor tenant. The freeway is about a quarter mile away. Almost no sound in bedrooms. Low hum in living room.

This is an area in transition and you will pass some old houses a few blocks away. These are occupied by friendly families who have lived there for generations. They are protective of the neighborhood, and may be curious who is driving past.

Please try to keep patio doors closed at all times. Don't freak out if you see a bug or two. Large wood roaches are common in Houston. I use low potency insecticide on a regular basis, but it hard to keep them out when you live in the woods with a lot of patio doors.
