Charles Tapley designed this attractive, well appointed house with an open feel organized around a private large central courtyard bringing in shady views.  Abundant windows are balanced with gallery like art spaces.

Charles Tapley was an architect, landscape architect and taught architecture at the University of Houston.  He was a 1955 Rice graduate and perhaps most known for his work to preserve and restore Buffalo Bayou.  Tapley designed the now endangered Tranquilly Park that honors the Apollo 11 moon mission.
