Like sharpened cuspids, a 4-pack of aligned and angled columns screens the entry of a 1960 modern home in Meyerland. Could a toothy grill off the circular driveway have been the intent of the long-term owner, a dentist? The home’s initial design is attributed to H. Oberdieck in architectural chatter about the property and its records. Listed earlier this month, the home’s asking price is $899,000.
HCAD indicates a 1982 renovation. A neighbor of days gone by, however, mentions in online discussion some additional work in the nineties that might have added the stalactites pictured above. Behind them, a recessed gated entry leads to a set of front doors with artsy etched glass panels.
Many of the 4,812-sq.-ft. home’s living, dining, and entertaining spaces are open to each other and feature full-height windows all around. Sections of tiered ceiling and up-a-step flooring designate “room” possibilities — as well as pathways through the sleek spaces:
Unlike the more open portions of the floor plan, the den (off the foyer) closes off with several sets of see-through doors:
More of the checkerboard motif pops up elsewhere in the home:
Sleepless? The master suite has an office . . .
and its bathroom, a few mirrors:
There are 3 secondary bedrooms, each with distinguishing features, including this one’s patio peek . . .
This one also has an office area . . .
but it’s down an internal hallway. Punchy trim connects the suite and finishes off the shelving between rooms:
A courtyard at the core of the property gives all the rooms a stone-and-planter view — and maybe some cross peeps:
The 14,190-sq.-ft. lot is across the street from the north side of Brays Bayou and east of S. Rice Ave. An open house is scheduled for next Sunday.
