Would Lars Bang Have Recognized This One?

From HAIF, a brief but classic conversation from earlier this week about the house for sale at 423 Electra in Memorial Bend:

Has anyone been inside this house lately? The realtor seems to be a little confused in the HAR listing. It reads that it is 2 bed from 3, has 6 bathrooms, a garage and a manned gate?? well I guess the fence and gate was put in by a man. And its a “absolutely gorgeous must see” and also sold for “lot value”. huh? My biggest question is what’s with that front yard nursery plantings?

Is the house re-muddled too far?

The response, after the jump — from someone who’s been there. Plus: all the remaining photos from the listing!


423 – I’m assuming that’s the Lars Bang designed house. When I saw it (before the previous owner), there had been some modifications – I remember some cool thing about the layout but I’m pretty sure this couple has done some hideous remuddling in the bathrooms. As for the landscaping – no one has a clue. They installed the gate about 5 years ago. If it can be removed and the outside cleaned up, it has a ton of great potential. It does have a big lot backing up to the nature sanctuary, too, which is a big bonus.

The house was listed in May for $499,000. The asking price was lowered to $399,000 at the end of November.
