Gretel "mystery" house for sale
You might have seen me post this little tidbit on the Memorial Bend web page before.
Well, this house has always intrigued me. There were a couple of pictures a while back posted on an HAR listing but it looks like a new listing shows much more.
Really, little is known about it... I don't know who designed it and the position on the lot really makes you wonder what's hiding behind the plain facade. The closed in carport seems to be a rather unsightly addition but it looks easily fixed. Anyway, wonder no more...
Hopefully someone will restore this great house before some developer razes it and replaces it with a zero lot line 5,000 sq. ft. Mediterranecolonialtudorgeorgian monstrosity. It needs some work but has a ton of potential. You have to dig the freestanding fireplace. Also, if I remember correctly, the roof may be butterfly shaped.
