About This Old House

Rare opportunity to acquire one of the most architecturally striking mid-century modern houses in the highly acclaimed Glenbrook Valley historic district, named a top neighborhood by This Old House and soon to be featured locally in Houstonia magazine’s March issue as one of Houston’s best neighborhoods for 2018. Pictured in the architecture book Building Modern Houston by Anna Mod & in the same family since 1966, it’s offered for sale for the 1st time in over 50 years. This architectural gem checks a lot of boxes for the mod enthusiast. Large wooded lot w/circle drive on desirable Santa Elena Street. Strong architectural presence with flat roof and brise soleil front wall. Grasscloth papered foyer with poured terrazzo that extends into the den with raised beamed ceiling, sunny clerestory windows, zoomy mod light fixtures & smooth original light paneling. 2-sided den flagstone fireplace also opens onto breakfast area that is angled off alongside the center island kit with original cabinetry & terrazzo floors. Glass wraps around the whole space, which overlooks the flagstone patio & planters. Both formals, service wing with utility room with skylight, workshop & side entrance. Middle BR set up as a perfect office with accordion doors to front BR. Big Master BR with sliders to terrace & one of the two spacious vintage baths.
