This marvelous mid-century modern house is situated on a large heavily wooded lot along a ravine, near a park and elementary school, just minutes outside the loop. It has all the sought after mod features such as terrazzo floors, flat roof, and walls of glass- all still in good original condition. The exterior composition consists of an interesting arrangement of brick panels and voids. It is a foreclosure so some repairs are needed but the price seems low for such a rare find. The living spaces are open concept and include a living-room and den plus there are four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Meadow Creek Village is one of Houston's best undiscovered neighborhoods.

A friend of mine is interested in this (the foreclosure) and we toured it Sunday with my real estate friend. It was clearly a showpiece in its day but has had LOTS of deferred maintenance. Obviously some foundation problems and a mysterious concrete patch in the kitchen area that indicates something, possibly plumbing work, was done. He actually likes the yard but it's very overgrown right now. He also likes all of the original things about the house like the kitchen and bathrooms, but lots of cracks in the tile, etc. The terrazzo floors in the entry look to be in good shape, if I were restoring, I think I'd lay down some sort of wood flooring where the carpet and vinyl now are and try to fix the existing baths.

The realtor was going to do some comp work, etc and try to find out more from the listing agent, but I haven't heard from my friend since. If he ends up buying it, he will stick to restoring rather than remodeling, the house could be a beauty for someone with patience...and money.
