"Frank Lloyd Wright meets the 21st century," begins the listing for this 1977 home in the Houston suburb of Tomball—and it's not an exaggerated claim. Designed by Leon Lee, an architect under MacKie and Kamrath Architects, a midcentury Houston-based firm that faithfully followed Frank Lloyd Wright's philosophy of organic architecture, the four-bedroom home was built as Lee's own residence. The house, however, had deteriorated to tear-down status by the time current owners scooped it up nearly three years ago, subsequently embarking on a painstaking restoration of the place. Now, the home's Frank Lloyd Wright-style touches—exterior lighting fixtures, wooden cabinets, and nature-worshipping glass walls and doors—mix right in with modern luxuries like Quartz countertops and Brazilian slate flooring.
Sitting on two-and-a-half acres of woodlands frequented by deer and rabbits, the roughly 3,200-square-foot house also flaunts soaring ceilings, a wet bar, plus tons of redwood millwork and built-ins. The owners, who've put it on the market for
$689K $649K, hope to find a preservation-minded buyer to maintain the legacy of the home.
