There’s a gussied up front door and porch on the far side of this tilt-topped 1960 home in Mangum Manor, but it’s the unobtrusive side door off the double driveway that appears to be the main entry, dropping arrivals neatly between the living room and kitchen (top). The tidy midcentury property, sporting a new roof and a recent paint job, jumped into the MLS fray earlier today with a $229,990 asking price.
Wide passageways between living spaces show off rafters at various angles, clerestory windows of various heights, and floors finished in wood laminate and 2 types of tile:

Mangum Manor Park is steps away from the lot next door; that property is on a corner of Costa Rica Rd., about a block south of Scarborough High School. A gully thread of White Oak Bayou also runs nearby.
