Help us find a new preservation-minded owner for this vintage modern house located in the Parkwest neighborhood, about 10 miles southwest of downtown Houston.

Located about two miles outside the loop in the attractive Parkwest neighborhood, this nifty vintage contemporary style house has been carefully preserved and thoughtfully updated. The sensible flow of the original 1960 layout has been preserved yet freshened and refinished to sparkle once again. Note the broad glass expanse with views to the beamed patio. The den features a raised ceiling, and the kitchen’s flush-front cabinetry has been renewed. Parkwest is a deed-restricted community within the City of Houston and is served by the HISD. There are 956 houses with a median size of 2,200 SF and median 1960 construction date. Several vintage contemporary style houses are generally located on each block.
