Swamplot Sponsor: This 1959 3-Bedroom Westbury Mod

Today Swamplot is brought to you by the 3-bedroom home at 5702 Warm Springs Rd. in Westbury. Thanks for the support!

This flat-roof mod was part of the Parade of Homes put on by the Greater Houston Builders Association in 1959. Some unsympathetic changes made to the interior over the years have been redone by the home’s current owners, but the home still sports a number of original period furnishings: The home’s bathrooms have been renovated to be more compatible with the home’s modern character, for example, and new cork flooring now covers most of the main living spaces. But the unique built-in bookcase along one wall of the front sitting room and a room divider adjacent to the kitchen remain from the original.

A wall by the entry is covered with a custom mosaic tile pattern; behind it, the den, kitchen, breakfast area, and an alcove now furnished with a tiki bar flow into each other in an expansive space. The back yard of the 8,400-sq.-ft. lot is fenced. The 2,311-sq.-ft. home features 2 separate attached single-car garages, as well as a separate storage building.
