November Mod of the Month

Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, November 18, 2018, for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2 - 4 PM.

Help us find a new preservation-minded owner for this vintage modern house located in the Parkwest neighborhood, about 10 miles southwest of downtown Houston.

Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event.

Located about two miles outside the loop in the attractive Parkwest neighborhood, this nifty vintage contemporary style house has been carefully preserved and thoughtfully updated. The sensible flow of the original 1960 layout has been preserved yet freshened and refinished to sparkle once again. Note the broad glass expanse with views to the beamed patio. The den features a raised ceiling, and the kitchen's flush-front cabinetry has been renewed. Parkwest is a deed-restricted community within the City of Houston and is served by the HISD. There are 956 houses with a median size of 2,200 SF and median 1960 construction date. Several vintage contemporary style houses are generally located on each block.


Other Mods of Interest:

5134 Braes Heather Drive in Meyerland is OPEN 12-2 on Saturday, November, 17 and said to have been designed by the same architect who designed the Astrodome! Note the vintage drawings shown in the listing.

4614 N. Roseneath Drive in Riverside Terrace is a large, well maintained early modern house, yet it is being promoted as a dream home construction site.  

If you have more information about these or other vintage modern homes and architects please contact Houston Mod so we can include it in our Modern Houston Index on our soon to premier all new website. 

We hope you will join us at Mod of the Month!
