Love it! My wife and I have a ranch style house built in 1989 here in Bakersfield and we have taken it back to the 60's. Bakersfield 1989 is what everyone else had 15 years earlier so our house is almost period correct. LOL

WOW!!! They did an excellent job....great furniture and placement in the rooms. I love the front door too. It is nice to see people that want to restore modern homes like that. I love your pictures...thanks for posting them.

I had a chance to buy and "resurrect" one of these beauties.. unfortunately, My budget was $50k short of the asking price.. The people who ended up buying it, of course, butchered it.

This is my latest odd little find in Glenbrook. Who knew Franciscan Starburst also came in a bath tile? Apparently they may have been produced to be used as "trivets" but in the case of this house I went in this week, they were placed randomly in the bath as "accents." Once again, I hope this doesn't end up on the curb in favor of "bead-board" or slate!

Big BUMP on this thread. FYI for any one in the Houston area, or in town on July 13th.

Houston Mod, the local "mod" preservation group, has chosen one of the Glenbrook mod houses as their mod of the month, and it will be held open on Sunday, July 13th from 2 to 4. They pick one mod that is for sale every month and try to draw attention to it so that it helps get a sympathetic person who "gets it" to hopefully buy it and save it.

http://www.houstonmod.org/resources.aspx?sub=props

In addition to the one mod, there will be four other mid-century swankiendas open, creating a sort of home tour. These include a roman brick ranch with a kitchen featured in Atomic Ranch magazine, a boom-a-rang shaped jolly rancher on a ravine lot, and a one-owner all original colonial with lots of terrazzo that looks like Samantha from Bewitched should be living in.

Wow - just looked at the HOM and it can't hold a candle to the other one you've been posting. The other is fantastic! Wish I could pack it up and move it to the Seattle area (better yet - move it to the Big Island!) Nice tile by the way - looks like the work of Sophista-Tiki! How old are those tiles? Newer?

Which other one? The one with the kitchen with glass tile backsplash? (called, of course, the TIKI blend from modwalls)

Sorry - sometimes I forget to look at the dates these were originally posted. I meant to say the HOM you last posted compared to the very first house you posted. I was also going to say the bar in the first post reminded me of Quagmire from the show Family Guy - his infamous comment "Giggidy" jumped into my head the second I saw it! LOL Thanks for bumping this post - I haven't gotten through HALF the old material here yet!

This will actually make it easier. Here are links to the five that will be open. One is a true mid-century modern, a couple are good mid-century ranches, one is very colonial but has great terrazzo floors. (Edit - the links were not working for me but I think I have them fixed now)

http://search.har.com/engine/dispSearch.cfm?mlnum=3536620&backButton=Y

http://search.har.com/engine/dispSearch.cfm?mlnum=4981736&backButton=Y

This one is traditional but will also be held open, the more the merrier

Had a great turn out. In case you missed it, there is always a story in the hood..
