It’s a mod with original features still intact through and through. Attributed to architect Joseph Krakower and Herb Greene, a designer who worked in his office, the well-preserved and well-screened (top) custom mid-fifties property has deep eaves beneath a hipped roof (redone in 2008) and spreads across a quarter-acre Braes Heights lot. The location is on the spit of homes between Brays Bayou and N. Braeswood Blvd. near Edloe St. The home was listing a week ago with an asking price of $518,000.
Tall slot windows jazz up most of the corners in the 2,783-sq.-ft. home.
The home has 3 bedrooms. Here’s the master . . .
and one of the 2 secondary bedrooms. (The third bedroom and 3 bathrooms opted out of listing pix.)
Original blueprints for the property were on display at a Houston Mod open house for the property held over the weekend. Materials from Houston Mod date the design to 1957, though the listing and HCAD peg the homes birth year as 1954.
