To see the Mods of the Month this time, you’ll have to head out to Lake Jackson. One of the 3 featured homes has already gone Option Pending, but this one, a few miles off the Nolan Ryan Expressway at 530 Circle Way St., is still available at $179,900. Designed by Houston architect Allen R. Williams, who began his career working with John Staub, the 1954 3-bedroom, 2-bath mod sits on a creek-edged property near the Lake Jackson Intermediate School.
The 2,232-sq.-ft. home has a 21-ft.-by-22-ft. living room, which isn’t shown in the listing. Neither are any of the 3 bedrooms — 13 ft. by 14 ft., 12 ft. by 14 ft., and 13 ft. by 17 ft.
In fact, most of the listing’s pictorial attention is given over to the kitchen:
Through that open shelving you can see the laundry cranny:
Off the kitchen is this dining nook:
And the rest of the listing seems devoted to the house’s recreational spaces.
The covered patio with a hot tub:
And billiards wing:
And the 2 bathrooms:
The backyard of the 28,762-sq.-ft. property runs into the aforementioned creek:
