  1. February Mod of the Month Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, February 24, 2019 for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2 - 4 PM. Please join us for an open-house event to help find a new preservation-minded owner for this vintage modern house in the Bayou Bend neighborhood of Dickinson located approximately 29 miles south of downtown Houston. Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event. 221 West Bayou Drive, Dickinson, Texas 77539 HAR Link | Google Map This true space age mod, built in 1962 for the NASA Director of Engineering & Development, is situated on 1.4 waterfront acres along picturesque Dickinson Bayou. The property has recently been thoughtfully restored and updated by the daughter of the original owners. The approach to the house is made by a sweeping circular drive leading to a spacious covered porch complemented by an open screen block wall, large spherical hanging light fixture, and a double-door entrance surrounded by glass. The entry sequence continues through an ample brick-walled foyer opening wide to the family room with high beamed ceiling and three walls of glass viewing the swimming pool and treed bayou-scape complete with dock. Four bedrooms, 4-1/2 baths, fully stocked mother-in-law apartment, and many more additional features complete the scene. The house was built for Maxime A. Faget (pronounced fa-jay) who came to the area in 1961. He designed the Mercury spacecraft and contributed to the design of the Gemini and Apollo spacecraft as well as the Space Shuttle. Bayou Bend is a subdivision of 59 properties located in Galveston County and served by the Dickinson Independent School District. Another Mod of Interest: This house on Oleander Drive will also be open on Sunday, 2 - 5 PM, and is only a few miles away from the Mod of the Month. 1701 Oleander Drive, Dickinson, Texas, 77539 HAR Link | Google Map If you have more information about these, or other vintage modern houses and/or architects, please contact Houston Mod so we can include it in our Modern Houston Index on our soon to premier new website.
