  1. Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, September 28, for a Mod of the Month event from 2 - 4 PM. Help us find a new preservation-minded owner for this endangered dramatic 1950's modern / contemporary style house situated 8 miles southwest of downtown. Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event. The next MODern Market will be held in October 20-26, 2014. 9110 Bassoon Drive Woodshire, Houston, Texas 77025 This dramatic house was custom designed and built for Joseph T. Finkelstein, co-founder and former president of the Alley Theater. Finkelstein was an actor in New York and Houston and commissioned architects Dunaway & Jones to model portions of this 1957 house after stage sets he admired. The living area has a high-sweeping beamed ceiling terminating in a second level loft space accessed by an open-riser stairway with landing on the elevated hearth. A brick fireplace flanked by double-height plate glass windows commands the longest wall of the room. Entertaining is made swanky yet casual with the kitchen and dining areas flowing freely into the living space. The kitchen is mostly original with the addition of a full sized Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer. This ultimate bachelor pad has only one bedroom (but has plenty of room to add more if necessary as the lot is almost 1/3 acre in size). The master bath is impressive for its time, approximately 256 SF, and contains the original sunken tub, double shower, portioned commode and urinal, plus a large mirrored corner hair and makeup station. A private sun terrace is accessed by a sliding glass door flanked by plate glass windows separating two indoor/outdoor planter boxes melding inside and outside. The grounds were handsomely developed with walkways and plantings from the period. A large vintage swimming pool and terrace can once again be the scene for memorable entertaining. Note: The event will provide full access to the exterior areas. The house interior can be viewed only through the windows. Interior tours can be scheduled with the agent. HAR Link Upcoming Events Downtown Modern Walking Tour: Houston Mod and Preservation Houston invite you to examine the historic layers, styles and technologies of Houston's skyline built between 1940 and 1980. The event is part of Docomomo US Tour Day, a nationwide celebration of mid-20th century architecture. October 12, 2PM. Advance tickets are required. Details Houston Modern Market: A Texas-sized weekend full of lectures, films, parties, tours, and a market showcase of modern fine art, furniture, jewelry, objects, design, architecture, clothing and more. Exhibitors will offer deals of the century on their best modern wares. The evening of October 24, put on your best mod chic for the Preview Party with libations, lite bites, and live entertainment. October 22-26 at Winter Street Studios. Details Support future Mod events by becoming a member of Houston Mod. Houston Mod is planning several members-only and members get-in-free events. If you need to check your membership status, please e-mail info@houstonmod.org Houston Mod publications will be sold at Sunday's event. We hope to see you Sunday at Mod of the Month!
