This intriguing 1958 flat-roofed mod is available for the first time in decades. The long curving driveway links two streets through the front positioned carport with attractive brick screen wall.  Streamlined original details are still present to inspire appropriate restoration.

In 2011, after a three-year struggle, the neighborhood of Glenbrook Valley, consisting of 1,256 houses, was designated Houston’s first historic district outside of the Loop 610 Freeway and is believed to be the largest mid-century era residential historic district in the United States. While visiting, note the recent vintage-styled neighborhood entrance markers, extensively landscaped recreational medians along Broadway and the many newly reconstructed streets with new utilities throughout the area plus the ever-improving condition of the houses and landscapes.

Nearby are the 1940 Air Terminal Museum and the Houston Botanic Garden.
