Set on a sizable lot, this mid-century ranch house — a little bit “modern”, a little bit “modest” was recently listed for sale in Houston, Texas by one of our favorite retro realtors, Robert Searcy. The home was designed by architect Lucian Hood to have an open floor plan, making its 1,900 square feet live large and stylish. Many of the home’s key features — kitchen cabinets and tile backsplash, bathrooms, living room — are still original. This one is a great example of how when people renovate, if they leave the period finishes and just clean things up and update systems, like the electrical, and avoid the latest flavor of the month cosmetic updates, then you can have a showstopper house with a lot of market appeal. Bathrooms: 2 Stunning mid-century modern designed by prominent architect Lucian Hood. Vintage mod character preserved w/original cabinetry, cool mod light fixtures, lots of floor to ceiling glass, pecky cypress siding, int brick accent walls & original paneling.
RARE find for mod enthusiast seeking vintage cosmetic character intact yet w/some system/structural updates. The home’s car port is especially cool because of the beamed ceiling and the secret, fenced-in garden space — complete with palm tree.
