November Mod of the Month
Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, November 22, 2015 for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2:00 - 4:00 PM.
Help find new preservation-minded owners for these two well designed houses located in Hilshire Village, about seven miles west of downtown Houston. Hilshire Village is a city incorporated in 1955 and is one of the six Memorial Villages. It has a population of about 750 and is about one-third  square mile in area.
Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event.

The complementary relationship of this well designed 1950s modern house to its beautifully landscaped almost half-acre ravine-front site results in forming a truly attractive property.  The long-term first owner was the well known landscape architect Joe P. Teas of Cornelius and Teas nurseries. His work strengthened the indoor-outdoor flow of the still mostly original house which includes such sought-after mod features as: tall sloped ceilings, a natural stone fireplace wall, stone floors and planter boxes, stained wood walls, special lighting, numerous built-ins, skylights, and wall to wall glass bringing in the picturesque setting. Beyond the glass, there is a large curved wooden deck with built-in seating extending into the naturalistic reserve complete with rock-enhanced trails through the sloping terrain. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a study, and a four-car garage complete the scene.

This unique early 1970s modern house has been thoughtfully designed, maintained, and updated by its original long-time owners. Privacy is maintained street side by brick walls with articulated slot and clear story windows while other elevations open wide to forested yard and patio views. A streamlined modern double-sided fireplace wall punctures the rear glass wall while it defines the living and dining areas. Many  walls, floors, and built-ins are covered with natural light-toned wood as is the barrel-vaulted rounded master bedroom.  A sauna, kitchenette and a large master bath complete this memorable suite. Special features continue into the other two bed and bath rooms plus the study.
