Midcentury modern masterpiece just steps from Buffalo Bayou strolls onto market for $3.15M
What happens when Mid-Century Modern style is blended with wooded trails along Buffalo Bayou? That would be 419 Westminster Drive, now on the market for $3.15 million and listed by Sotheby's International Realty.
This recently updated Hunters Creek oasis seamlessly blends the flat planes, huge windows and open planning that are hallmarks of MCM architecture with contemporary updates like a fully remodeled kitchen and extensive bathroom renovations to create a space that is a welcoming retreat.
Originally built in 1968, 419 Westminster Drive was remodeled in 2018 by the current owners in concert with Daniel Hall from Stern & Bucek Architects. Unfolding across more than 4,600 square feet, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home sits on nearly two wooded acres tapering down to Buffalo Bayou.
The stunning home's interior pops with flagstone accents and wooden-beamed ceilings. Its open floor plan offers seamless flow and plenty of space for entertaining. This is a home that was meant to be shared.
Renovations include custom cabinetry throughout and touches that maximize the home's views, such as a standing tub centered against a window in one of the bathrooms. A sitting room offer a panoramic view of the home's forest surroundings, giving the feeling of floating above the flora and fauna.
Outdoor spaces include cozy seating areas, bridges leading to larger entertaining spaces, and the beautiful quiet that accompanies 419 Westminster Drive's location. Trails and wooded areas are but a short stroll away from the backyard.
Those who fear being too remote, have no worries. Zoned to Spring Branch ISD, 419 Westminster Drive is close to I-10 and 610, offering easy access to the city.
Although, with a home like 419 Westminster Drive, owners might simply want to stay put. No one could blame them.
