Near Meyerland and never flooded is this nifty flat-roofed mod priced very affordably. The 1963 design incorporates the popular barrel vault theme over the entrance, double front doors, terrazzo floored living areas, built in shelving and planter box and many vintage fixtures, all in good condition.
Pace Setter Homes developed the neighborhood about 1961 and built the house in 1963. Mitchell-Dobbins Land Development Corporation, consisting of George Mitchell and Norman Dobbins, lead the firm. Norman Dobbins was an experienced homebuilder and Mitchell was mainly in the oil industry until this time. Mitchell-Dobbins went on the develop Pirates Beach and Pirates Cove in Galveston. George Mitchell later developed the Woodlands, an award-winning new town development, population 115,000 today and restored much of Galveston’s downtown.
