Houston, TX Mel O'Brien MCM - former show house, $139,000

A wonderful mid-century modest in the Glenbrook Valley post war Historic District. A ton of structural and system updates were done, including roofing, plumbing and electrical updates, HVAC, hot water heater, appliances, etc. One bathroom was remodeled, one remains vintage.

The house was credited to the Senior class of Rice University, specifically, then-student Mel O'Brien. It was built as part of the Greater Houston Builder's association's 1956 "Parade of Homes." A home show that was very big at the time. Many of the homes on the block were featured in conjunction with promotions of national magazines, such as Parent's magazine and Popular Mechanics.

Mel O'Brien went on to start his own firm in Memphis, Tenn. He was President of the Memphis AIA chapter in 1969. Mr. O'Brien was featured as one of the leaders of modern architecture in Memphis, in a book recently published, "A survey of modern buildings in Memphis, Tenn. 1940 - 1980."
