HOUSTON – A Memorial-area home in the midcentury modern style is on the market for $1,799,000.
The updated home at 503 Timber Terrace Road -- called a “one-of-a-kind classic” -- was originally designed by architect Philip G. Willard and completed in 1955.
This 4,628-square foot house has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and sits on a 26,989-square foot lot that backs up to the ravine.
The home sports original parquet flooring, angled windows, and exposed brick walls, offering “modern amenities (that) blend seamlessly with old-world charm and luxury,” according to the listing.
Nan and Company Properties also note in the listing that the home has never flooded.
“When you step into the home, you are greeted by floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the expansive landscape,” the real estate company notes. “The original parquet floors lead to the beautiful sitting area and the piano room, where you can sit down at the piano or marvel at its craftsmanship. As you go through the piano room, you step down into the main living room, showcasing floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the beautiful backyard beyond. The adjacent dining room shares this brilliant view, brick wall features, as well as original textured grasscloth wallpaper.
“The home at 503 Timber Terrace not only showcases the exquisite taste of Philip, but it showcases both mid-century and modern, past and present. The high attention to detail and the natural aspect of this space allows the architecture to take center stage in the design, and it does so brilliantly.”
