Samuel Brochstein Home At 2355 Kelving St.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

woah! Has anyone seem this amazing house on historic aerials or Google earth? Shame it was knocked down. 

From the neighborhood newsletter called The Old Braeswood News dated Summer 2010.

The home would have been built in the 1950s, I believe 1954 to be exact.



Short paragraph from the article detailing the 1954 home:

Issac and Mildred, his wife, often visited friends in Old Braeswood, and lingered at the park with their sons, Branard and Raymond. In 1947, Ike bought a triple lot that spanned the back of the park, but did not build on it until 1951, about when Ray was entering Rice University as an undergraduate in architecture. Rice didn't have dorm capacity for students from Houston, and Ray moved into the house with his parents [Three years later, Ike's brother Samuel built a house at 2355 Kelving, the peninsular site bounded by Kelving and Glenn Haven. That site is now an empty lot.]
