Pits and platforms change up the floor plan of a 1965 home in Meyerland with double-decker expanses of glass. Once home to architect Arthur Steinberg, the property arrived on the market just before the holiday weekend. The asking price is $750,000.
While the home faces north, its entry looks east through glass-panel doors. Steps away from the foyer and its clean sweep of a staircase (above) is the step-down living area, which accents the main room’s ceiling height, natural lighting, and leafy view:
Located between interior and exterior windows, the study is a bit of a fish bowl (in the background in the photo above and at right). A curving barrier-free walkway (below) connects ground-level rooms. Above it, there’s a balcony serving some of the secondary bedrooms upstairs:
A half-flight of stairs leads to the raised dining platform. There’s another staircase at this level as well:
While the ceilings in the living room are extra tall, the updated kitchen’s overhead appears to be a more standard height:
Beyond a berm of counter space (above) lies enough room for an informal dining area and a passage to the den:
The master suite at ground level gets views of hints of yard:
Laminate counters remain in the master bathroom, which comes with a double vanity and tub with shower (not pictured):
The home has 5 or 6 bedrooms, including this one fitted into one of the window-sided overhangs on the second floor . . .
. . . and this one, called the “game room” in the listing:
HCAD indicates a 1995 remodeling of the 5,417-sq.-ft. home. The 11,400-sq.-ft. lot is located a long block from
Goodwin Godwin Park south of Brays Bayou where S. Rice become Rutherglen. Kolter Elementary School is also nearby.
The listing mentions a patio and a garden (above) on the south-by-southeast portion of the lot, much of which is fenced. Access to the 2-car garage is at the front of the property.
The property has a $469 annual maintenance fee.
