For the modernist, this 1964 Houston home on the bayou offers entertainment: a private pool, tree-covered patio. The estate has a well-balanced mix of original aesthetic and modern conveniences.

This classic Mid-Century Modern estate has been lovingly preserved with a modernist aesthetic that is rare to find. 4-5 Bedrooms/5 full baths with 2 half baths and over 4,300 square feet of living space in the main house are emphasized by an open floorplan and an abundance of floor-to-ceiling windows that fill each room with ambient light, seamlessly blending each space with the beauty of the surrounding landscape.

The updated gourmet kitchen features sleek bamboo cabinetry that is complemented by the under-cabinet lighting, black granite counters, and stainless-steel appliance suite including a Thermador refrigerator and freezer towers, Bosch dishwasher, Dacor convection microwave oven in an appliance garage and Dacor warming drawer, and a best-in-class six-burner gas range. The nearby entertainment bar includes an additional prep sink and 52 bottle wine refrigerator. A cozy breakfast nook is directly adjacent to informal dining.

The living room overlooks the pool and includes vaulted ceilings, a double-sided fireplace, and Terrazzo flooring that continues throughout most of the home. Working from home is easy with a dedicated office space complete with ample built-in storage, desk, and commercial-grade Wi-Fi from the street to bayou. In the gym, enjoy floor-to-ceiling mirrors and a ballet bar that runs the length of the wall.

The main-floor primary bedroom is spacious and features a newly installed Berber carpet and a large walk-in, cedar-lined closet. The spa-like ensuite bathroom is stunning with a custom, oversized glass and tile shower. This room can be easily converted to a media entertainment room with sound system wiring and projector wiring. Upstairs, the owner’s retreat luxury suite includes a wood-burning fireplace with granite surround, a coffee and wine bar, wiring for the sound system, workout room, an office, and a private balcony with a bayou view. The ensuite bathroom includes marble flooring, an oversized jacuzzi tub, Graff fixtures, and a cultured marble makeup vanity.

Ideal for entertaining, the grounds include a mother of pearl-finished swimming pool, Zen rock garden, sprawling manicured lawn, and a pool house with retro décor. Take a stroll along the wood walkway amongst the verdant landscaping that leads to a deck overlooking the bayou. Enjoy Elm, Ash, Oak, Hackberry, and Cherry Laurel trees throughout the property.

Three HVAC units—the main unit being commercial grade—will keep comfortable year-round, and the gated entrance to the garage with six security cameras and alarm system will give peace of mind. Energy efficiency with these units, the TPO roof, high-efficiency appliances and LED lighting throughout the home, and abundance of natural light all contribute to incredibly low electric bills.
