Sorry for the delayed post. HAIF was offline when this took place.



December Mod of the Month

Houston Mod invites you to join us Sunday, December 30, 2018 
for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2 - 4 PM.

Please join us for an open house to help find the perfect tenants for this vintage modern house for lease in the Parkwest neighborhood, located approximately 10 miles southwest of downtown Houston.

Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event.

This feature-packed 1959 vintage contemporary house was custom built by the parents of its current owner who has respectfully refreshed it to sparkle once again. The design responds to the corner location providing entrances within brick walled courtyards from both streets. Each entry courtyard features perforated brick walls and illuminated landscape features.

The U-shaped plan yields a central patio, accessible from several rooms, viewed through an expansive array of plate glass windows in the den. Many original features remain including light fixtures, wood cabinetry and terrazzo floor. The original kitchen has been revived with sensational turquoise-colored retro appliances.

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.



Another Mod of Interest:

This home on Sandpiper Drive in the Larkwood neighborhood, located only a few miles from the Parkwest Mod of the Month. The house was featured as a Mod of the Month in 2014, and once again is in need of a mod-minded new owner. See it on Saturday, December 29, 10 AM – 1 PM at an open house hosted by the listing agent, or drive-by Sunday after visiting the Mod of the Month.
