New Listing: The Well-Paneled Home

8714 Bevlyn Dr. Exterior View

If you’re looking for a home with plenty of wood paneling, you’re probably not going to do better than this fine 1953 concoction on Bevlyn Dr., just a few blocks south of Brays Bayou in Braes Terrace. Sure, it appears sedate from the street, but the interior walls comprise a small catalog of wood-paneling possibilities.

Minutes from the Medical Center and Rice University this classic mid-century home is located on a quiet tree-lined street. Large rooms with all formals, huge Family room that leads to a sun room and the wonderful pool.

The house is 3200 square feet, sits on an oversized lot, and is listed at $384,777. At the end of the agent’s description is the requisite disclaimer:

Per seller this home never flooded.

Of course it didn’t! Otherwise you’d be looking at water lines on all the wood walls.

After the jump, photos from inside, featuring: panels!
