Our sponsor today is the 2-story home at 2366 Dunstan Rd. in the Southampton Place Extension — one of a pair of adjacent homes designed by architect and Rice prof Will Cannady. Thanks for supporting Swamplot!
Forty years ago, when William T. Cannady had been teaching architecture at nearby Rice University for a mere 12 years (he’s still at it today), he created this modern home and its mirrored-plan neighbor one lot away from the eastern edge of the Rice Village. The entry, past a crepe-myrtle-lined walkway that stretches between the 2 homes, opens next to the living room, which looks out to a private brick-paved patio terrace in back (pictured above). Large, high windows at the stairwell and several other strategic spots throughout the structure bring light into the home — and offer views of the surrounding greenery.
All 3 bedrooms are upstairs. A balcony from one of the bedrooms peeks out over the back patio. A renovation added hardwood floors to the main living space, Miele appliances to the galley kitchen, and fixtures from Waterworks and new cabinets to the bathrooms. There’s also a working elevator.
Inventive ice cream shop Cloud 10 Creamery is dangerously close (just around the corner on Morningside); it’s an extra block-and-a-half or so to 24 Hour Fitness. You can get to the Med Center with a 25-minute walk along the oak-lined edges of Rice University.
You’ll want to see more pics of this place; they’re available on the property website. 2366 Dunstan Rd. is listed for sale by New Leaf Real Estate, which offers unique savings programs for both sellers and buyers.
