This week we’ve all been fascinated with walled compounds. This 4,119-sq.-ft. one on a 5,000-sq.-ft. lot at the corner of Ferndale and Kipling a couple blocks west of Kirby went on the market just last week. It’s the former home of longtime Houston real-estate agent Robin Elverson, designed in 1976 by Chicago modernist Irving Colburn. From the street, you can’t see much of anything inside. Now’s your chance to get a glance:
Once you’re past the tall brick walls, there’s no need to bother with . . . window treatments.
The 2-story home has 3 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, and an elevator, all grouped around 2 interior patios. The seller is asking just under $1.5 million.
