Nestled atop verdant rolling hills, this 1961 mid-century modern home is a wonderful example of the many intact, ranch-style structures in the historic Kiestwood neighborhood. The current resident is the second owner of this nearly two-acre property. The home was in severe disrepair when the current owner purchased it in 2002. Over a period of several years, it became a labor of love as he restored many of the home’s original features.

Built in 1950, this home was purchased by the current owners in 2011. The house had fallen into disrepair, so before moving in, the mission was to give it a complete facelift that would give a nod towards both Texas and French Louisiana influences.

The current owner purchased this home in 1994 for $5,500. It had been in been in poor condition, but a lightning strike coupled with a tragic fire did further damage. After the fire, the structure was left open to the elements for an extended period, and it was finally slated for demolition. To rehabilitate, the owner had to work with the Urban Rehabilitation Standards Board, which delayed permits for six months. The board eventually issued permits with a deadline for completion and a penalty of $500 per day for overage. In the end, only some of the foundation, about 200 square feet of flooring, and a small exterior wall were salvaged from the original structure. The neighborhood gave the house the “Nicest Renovation” award at the celebration for the tenth anniversary of the Kings Highway Conservation District.
