This weekend’s Good Brick Tour from Preservation Houston is today’s sponsor. Thanks for supporting Swamplot!
The strong horizontal lines of the house at 67 Tiel Way in River Oaks reflect the influence of the legendary Frank Lloyd Wright on Houston architects MacKie & Kamrath. Built on a rolling site near Buffalo Bayou, this landmark 1949 home has been sensitively renovated and updated while preserving its midcentury character.
67 Tiel Way and 4 more privately owned historic homes and buildings will be open for guided tours this weekend only — in the 2018 edition of the Good Brick Tour. Guided tours to all the properties will take place from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 27, and Sunday, October 28.
Preservation Houston has recognized all the properties on this tour with Good Brick Awards for excellence in historic preservation. In addition to 67 Tiel Way, the other Good Brick Tour locations this year are:
- 2119 Lubbock St., Old Sixth Ward: The classic 1892 Victorian home built by an immigrant German carpenter has been preserved with its beautiful woodwork intact.
- 3702 Audubon Pl., Montrose: This distinctive 1921 airplane bungalow has remained in the same family since it was built and features heirloom furniture and personal mementoes.
- Heights Textile Mill, 611 West 22nd St., Houston Heights: Houston’s 19th-century industrial heritage is preserved in this massive 1894 factory creatively redeveloped with studios and offices.
- 934 Louise St., Sunset Heights: This 1921 bungalow and its original garage apartment have been renovated for contemporary living while maintaining their original Craftsman style.
