Today’s Swamplot sponsor: The 1959 vintage home at 8102 Colgate St. in Glenbrook Valley. Thank you for sponsoring this site!
If you’ve been waiting for just the right Glenbrook Valley Mod to make its presence known, you’ll want to take a good look at the 3-bedroom, 2-and-a-half-bath home at 8102 Colgate, which just went up for sale over the weekend. It sits on a 13,573-sq.-ft. lot on the corner of Colgate and Lakewind St., tucked deep into the neighborhood south of Sims Bayou. Glenbrook Valley, in case you didn’t know, is Houston’s only historic district prized for its Midcentury Modern homes.
A double entry door flanked under an overhang by cross-ribbed glass panels at the center of the front facade of this home leads to a terrazzo-tile entry hall. And your first view inside is unexpected (well, it would have been if we didn’t spill the beans here): A central atrium court, seen through 3 floor-to-ceiling windows. (It’s the outdoor space shown in the photo at top.)
Many rooms in the house provide views into the atrium space — including the vaulted, 28-foot-long den (pictured above), which has an office alcove off it. The attached 2-car garage has storage rooms and additional workshop space. There’s also carport, with room for 2 more cars.
You can get a pretty good sense of the home’s layout if you study the photos on the property website. Or arrange for a tour! The home is offered for sale by Robert Searcy of Robert Searcy Properties.
