Mid-century modern style home on magnificent village acre lot (39,997 square feet per HCAD) on sought after cul-de-sac street in Piney Point. The house has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, an open floor plan, high ceilings and walls of windows, beautiful grounds with mature trees, pool/spa and tennis court, architecturally desirable home ready for your updates.

A potential buyer has recently made an offer on this house and has asked Houston Mod for recommendations on how it can be improved. Interested architects, designers, and contractors are welcome to come take a look and contact the potential buyer with your ideas.

HAR Link

11706 Longleaf Lane

Mayerling, 77024


According to the HAR listing: Lovely, treed lot on cul-de-sac in sought after Memorial community that is being developed with $1 million + homes. Great schools, easy access to business, cultural and shopping areas.

There is more here however- included with this great lot is a wonderful 1950's mid-century modern house which can be attributed to architect William Jenkins. This house has many details which are often found in his custom designed houses. You will want to see this house, especially if you are going on the Jenkins tour on April 25. Count the similarities such as saltillo tiled floors, bridge connecting the public areas to the private areas, plate glass windows extending to the floor, and spectacular large central atrium/indoor-outdoor room. By researching other known houses by Jenkins, information on the atrium rooms was discovered showing they often contained screened walls and ceilings, fish ponds and even lawn turf. This example even has a built-in brick bar-b-que. (Presently, this space has been enclosed and air conditioned.)

You can learn much more about the documented work of William Jenkins from the soon to be released Houston Mod publication High Style in the Suburbs- The Early Modern Houses of William R. Jenkins, 1951-1958. The book will first be available at the Lawndale Modern Market, April 24 - 26. The Jenkins tour will depart from and return to the Modern Market on April 25.

Please note the work opportunity:

If you offer some kind of service or skill that you would like to make available to a potential mod homeowner, please be sure and visit the house on Green Oaks. The new owner is looking for proposals.

Others needing help with their mod may find it here too.

the HAR link isnt working for me

The HAR links are working now.

The person who made an offer on the Green Oaks house and asked for professional help regarding its "many needed upgrades" would like proposals on what to do in the kitchen, baths, and facade. They want to insure the changes are appropriate for the house.
