  1. March Mod of the Month Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, March 17, 2019 for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2 - 4 PM. Please help Houston Mod find a new preservation-minded owner for this vintage modern house in the Glenbrook Valley Historic District, located approximately 8 miles southeast of downtown Houston. Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event. 8015 Glenforest Court, Glenbrook Valley, Houston, TX 77061 HAR Link | Google Map Last month's Mod of the Month house was the home of a NASA astronaut - the Space Age theme continues with the marvelous Sputnik House as the focus of the March event. The house was built in 1957, the same year as the launch of the world's first space satellite called Sputnik, which so captivated the period that the original owner put into orbit a replica floating above the front door. The Sputnik fixture is sensational as is the rest of the custom built house complete with sought after features like poured terrazzo floors, brick interior walls, pecky cypress siding, loads of custom cabinets and shelving, colorful original light fixtures, a handsome brick fireplace wall, baths with sparkling original ceramic tile, and glass sliding doors leading to a spacious patio and back yard. The house is prominently situated along a sweeping curve on a street of attractive mid-century era houses in the Glenbrook Valley neighborhood. In 2011, after a three year struggle, the neighborhood of 1,256 houses was designated the city's first historic district outside of the loop 610 freeway and is believed to be the largest mid-century era residential historic district in the United States. It is within Harris County and served by the Houston Independent School District. If you have more information about this, 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. In Other News April is MODern Month in Texas! This is the 10th annual celebration. The calendar will be available soon. If you are aware of an event focusing on modern design, please inform Houston Mod so it can be included. Look for a kickoff event at the first of the month.
