Mod Open House 8-24-14 Larkwood


Recommended Posts




Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, August 24, for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2 - 4 PM. 

Help us find a new preservation-minded owner for this well designed 1950s modern / contemporary style house, situated about 12 miles southwest of downtown Houston.   
Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event.
The next MODern Market will be held in October 20-26, 2014.


 8901 Larkwood Drive, 77074 


The original design intentions of this attractive 1950s contemporary style home continue to shine through, making it a great house for today and tomorrow.

A number of talented architects including William Floyd, Harwood Taylor,  William Jenkins and Lucian Hood designed houses in this neighborhood.  It is not known who designed this house.

Situated on a spacious tree shaded corner lot, the architect-owned house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two car carport. The living room features a tall sloped ceiling, long unpainted brick wall, hardwood flooring and a glass sliding door leading to the patio and back yard.
