2 Mod Open Houses Sunday, Aug 19, 2-4PM Braeburn Valley


Recommended Posts


Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, August 19, for Mod of the Month from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

Two vintage modern houses in the Braeburn Valley neighborhood will be open for touring. The houses are presently available for purchase and looking for new preservation minded owners. They are located close to Houston Baptist University and Memorial-Hermann Hospital in SW Houston.

Special thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event.



7818 Nairn Street, Houston, Texas 77074

Braeburn Valley, Section 2


This mid-century modern house was designed in 1956 by the talented and prolific architect Lucian Hood, Jr.. It overlooks the manicured expanses of the Braeburn golf course in Braeburn Valley. The exterior is a composition of ledge stone, brick and redwood along with expansive walls of glass. The present owner has maintained and restored the house including removing layers of paint from the redwood siding, exposing it's natural grain. Inside, spaces flow freely with views of the shaded private back yard on one side and country club grounds on the other. The dining room has a 16' wide ledge-stone wall separating it from the living room. The guest bathroom is completely original and features vintage pink plumbing fixtures and elevated cabinets.

Braeburn Valley, Section 5


Braeburn Valley is the location of this all-original custom designed and built family-sized mod that is a step back to another era. You will be amazed upon entering thru the impressive double front doors into the terrazzo floored foyer complete with dramatic custom built stairway and two-story picture window. Pose for your Brady Bunch-like portrait here!

Step down into the family room with soaring vaulted ceiling and brick fireplace. Formal living and dining rooms are also reached from the foyer area. The kitchen has original wood cabinets and brick accents, all in excellent condition. There are four bedrooms- two down-stairs and two up-stairs plus a study and a three car garage. This section of the neighborhood was planned with convenient alleys behind the houses, a very uncommon feature in Houston.
