Today Swamplot is brought to you by the midcentury home at 8002 Glen Valley Dr. in Glenbrook Valley. Thanks for the support!
Architect (and Houston Mod cofounder) Ben Koush directed the latest round of renovations — of the bedrooms, bathrooms, office, and patio area (pictured above) — to this 1955 single-story. Earlier efforts opened up the vaulted-ceiling family room (pictured at top) to the formal living and dining areas at the front of the home, converted the garage to a flex space with built-in cabinets, and brought updates to the adjacent kitchen.
The 3-bedroom, 2-and-a-half-bath, 3,263-sq.-ft. home has new engineered-wood flooring, modern ceiling fans and light fixtures, and carefully hued accent walls in the bedrooms. A walk-in shower behind a wall of glass block wall and a separate wall of closets define the en-suite master bath. Outside, new landscaping designed by landscape architect Travis Peiffer includes an assortment of flower beds, a WiFi-enabled sprinkler system, and a pool with a shallow underwater umbrella mount to allow shady (and leaf-free) lounging in the water.
The 13,138-sq.-ft. corner lot is perched at the scenic northern reaches of Glenbrook Valley, Houston’s only midcentury-modern-era historic district. It’s convenient to the Gulf Fwy., Hobby Airport, and an entire community of Mod-home admirers and renovators.
More information about the home — along with many more photos — are available on the property website. It’s listed for sale by New Leaf Real Estate, which offers unique savings programs for both buyers and sellers.
