Houston, TX '59 Parade of Homes Mod w/indoor pool! $235,000

Postby txmod » Sat Jun 16, 2007 5:23 am

This is one of the more unusual MCM's I have come across in Houston. It is located in Westbury, just south of the Galleria area and near the Medical Center. It was one of the model homes for the 1959 Parade of Homes and appeared in House & Home magazine in July, 1959 (page 123). The home was designed by Claude E. Hooten.

A lot of its vintage details are intact, but the home has sat vacant for awhile and needs a restoration. The current pictures are pretty poor, so once they get a few repairs done I will have professional shots done which will show the space better.

That could be a special home. Like the brick and clerestories. I suppose the pool space, with railings removed, could be anything from a dance floor to a carport (for that display-worthy vehicle) to a loggia ?

That indoor pool is wild! I would love to see a photo of the space with the pool filled with water.

I love this house! Too bad I'm not in the market for a house in Houston, or I'd be on it RIGHT NOW. I hope it ends up in mod-lovin' hands.

The Smell? The Humidity?

Postby ch » Tue Sep 18, 2007 2:56 am

I would love having a pool right in the middle of my living room but wouldn't the moisture create issues? What about chlorine vs. alternative methods of sanitizing the water? Would your home smell like a health club?

Houston must have some of the most affordable modern houses in the US right now. I am constantly amazed at prices so low in a large city.

It will take a HVAC system with a de-humidifier in it. It can be done. I would use one of the non-chlorine systems myself.

It's still $209,000, Looking at that vintage photo and compare that to the Google earth pictures, there is a bunch more trees!
We could sell our Ca home, and buy this one for cash...and 5 more like it. And my place is nothing to write home about, it's just a tract home.
