Renovated a year after Tropical Storm Allison, this glowing midcentury home plays up its mini-mod origins. The 1952 property is in the Southern Oaks neighborhood of Braeswood Place, located just off Buffalo Speedway north of Brays Bayou.

The lot, about a quarter of an acre, includes a slate patio beneath a flying canvas cover — as well as a manicured lawn.
The listing popped up on the market last Friday and has an asking price of $745,000.
