A reader writes in to report finding “arguably Houston’s best version of McKim Mead & White’s famous Low House, with maybe a little Brady Bunch pizazz thrown in:”
Complete with the classic Memorial-area window wall facing the back yard. Bet MM&W never thought of that!
It’s this 5-bedroom 1964 home on a little more than half an acre in Bunker Hill Woods, which snuck on the market for $780,000 at the beginning of this month. Plus, raps the listing agent, pecky pickled cypress paneling in the Family and Living Rooms:
Estate property built by architect for himself. Owned by one family exclusively. . . . Floor in gmrm recycled from Rice U science lab as well as lower cabinets in garage.
Never mind the Game Room floor. Where’d they get that bathroom tile?

This is a gem! Some upgrades here and their and this place is just simply awesome.
Do we have any mid century modsters ready to invest in this beauty?
Whoa! I think I just had a seizure from looking at that tilework.
This is lot value, right?
So who is the architect?
Love it! The tile stays!
Beyond hideous…Call the wrecking ball in.
Some thing are better left in 1964. This is one of them.
It’s doomed. No gift wrap room, no soapstone countertops, bathroom is less than 400 square feet. Just as well, there is not nearly enough Tuscan-Rococo in this city!
At least many other mod homes (the more reasonably priced and sized) are safe or saved.
Outside of some of the colors, the style in general is very clean and long lasting.
I don’t much of the history of mod architecture, but I do like Scandinavian design which uses a lot of aspects found in mod architecture.
Omigod, it’s great. A touch of 21stC color in the furnishings would be useful, especially to tone down the pukey peck pickled paneling. Otherwise, don’t change a thing.
