Over in the Mod Mecca of Meyerland, a well-tended 1960 home rolls out the red carpet — and terrazzo tile, wood paneling, and other mid-century finishing touches. In near-original condition, the tilt-topped property is located east of Chimney Rock Rd. and south of S. Braeswood Blvd. Its listing earlier this week comes with a $459,900 price tag.
Brick room dividers, neither of which are full-height, define the front room, which faces north. Could this serve as a dining room as well as living room? Maybe: It measures 12 ft. by 24 ft. The quad-window unit faces a courtyard formed by shrubbery that squares off the front elevation and a gated walkway leading to the recessed front door. (See photo at the top of this story.)
The front room is a shallow step down from the mostly open hallway (above), which passes by the kitchen on the way to the den. Natural light from the latter’s wall of windows facing south carries forward, over the divider:
A mix of sky, water, wood, brick, glass, and tile (plus fabric, at the moment) meets up in the den:
The service window ledge at the left of the breakfast room photo below indicates the kitchen’s location in the 2,428-sq.-ft. floor plan.
Formica countertops and electric appliances ring the 8-ft.-by-14-ft. kitchen (also pictured at the top of the story):
Off the den, a hallway lined in shelving leads to the bedroom wing:
The master bedroom . . .
has its own bathroom, a shower-only one with custom hardware on the vanity:
The other full bathroom, which sports a few updates . . .
shares its general household use with 3 secondary bedrooms:
Sliders facing west in the back bedroom (it has a built-in desk, too) provide direct access to the pool . . .
which is part of a screened-in lanai:
The floor plan includes a utility room and this 9 ft. by 22 ft. workshop:
HCAD records appear to show the home has been owned by the same family since at least 1988.
