Houston TX area Incredible MCM by premier Architect $159,900

This one is actually located in Baytown, which is just east of Houston. It was designed by Pierce and Pierce, which were highly regarded architects. Mostly original, seems very well built. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths plus a half bath in the garage. Incredible design quality. https://www.har.com/site/920-lea...

Houston TX Post-War Historic District Mods, Ranches, Swankiendas

I've got a couple of great mid-century listings in Houston's Glenbrook Valley, named a top neighborhood by This Old House. Most of the houses in that section of the neighborhood were custom, so they vary a lot. It is only about 8 miles from downtown, and also close to the Medical Center and major Un...

Houston, TX $1,895,000 in Tanglewood

This one was destined to be a tear-down last year. Originally a 2 bedroom, in a neighborhood filling up with multi-million dollar McMansions, chances for survival were slim. The owners expanded it 4,461 sq ft and renovated it with modern finishes.

Houston, TX MCM paneled in teak, cypress, cherry, walnut

This is a bit unusual. The modernist character would show through better without the furniture and the rooms need light colored flooring for the wood walls to work visually. Some rooms have a dark dated green carpet, but that would be easy to change. You would have to like wood, but it is an interes...
