Old Growth Ventures Receives Certificate of Appropriateness to rehab Historic 1890s Victorian Home

We are pleased to announce receipt of a Certificate of Appropriateness to rehabilitate a historic home in Houston in Old Sixth Ward at 908 Sabine.

Established in 1853 Old Sixth Ward is one of Houston's oldest neighborhoods, was the first National Register Historic District in Houston. It houses Houston's largest remaining collection of 200 Vict0rian homes, nestled inside the Loop alongside Buffalo Bayou and Memorial Drive in the heart of the city core between the Heights and Downtown. Many of the homes are beautifully restored.

Old Growth Ventures principal Neal Dikeman would like to thank the Houston Archaeological and Historical Commission (HAHC) and the City of Houston's Historic Preservation Office in the Department of Planning and Development for approval of our project to save and rehabilitate this 110+ year old home. Old Sixth Ward is one of the most dynamic and well preserved, thanks in large part to an active neighborhood association. We would also like to thank Grayform Architecture and Solutions Builders who are undertaking this project.

908 Sabine has been vacate for 30+ years, and is a complete rehabilitation project of a fine example of National Folk and Folk Victorian architecture. The house is one of the few remaining 1800s houses in Houston, and is located on Sabine St, one of the last remaining original brick streets in Houston, slated for restoration by the city.

We look forward to an open house to show off our rehabilitated historic property.
