Houston Manse From Terms of Endearment Wants $3.5M

New, 1 comment


Aficionados of eighties cinema will surely recognize this stately Houston, Texas manse as the home of fictional former-astronaut Garrett Breedlove—played by one Jack Nicholson—in Terms of Endearment. Now, the real-life property is on the market for a cool $3.5M, looking largely the same as it did on screen, though with some tastefully remodeled interiors. Even before its brush with fame, the 6,600-square-foot, three-bedroom estate—called the Waldo Mansion—was quite the impressive place, built in 1885 by noted railroad tycoon J.P. Waldo. Mr. Waldo's original woodwork, ornate glass windows, and other "custom appointments" remain, paired with such swanky perks as 15-foot ceilings, massive bedrooms, and a stately entryway. Outside, there's a wrap-around porch, a nearby guest cottage, and a peaceful little koi pond courtyard—which appeared as a pool in the movie. By all means, do take a peek:
