For years, Odessa, Texas, has been known as the setting of the hit book and film Friday Night Lights, but it’s time to also recognize the unique buffet of midcentury architecture that the western city houses. Case in point: this reimagined 1950s dwelling that is now up for grabs.
Nestled on a nearly half-acre lot, the single-level home was originally built in 1955 and has been tenderly cared for throughout the decades. Apparent immediately upon arrival are its striking details: A large attached carport extends over the right-hand side of the lot, while steel beams resembling the legs of a spider elegantly span across the exterior and into the home’s front courtyard.
Inside, the residence offers more than 4,000 square feet of living space. A generous entryway opens up to the primary gathering areas, where vaulted ceilings enhance the home’s grand proportions. Large, wood-trimmed windows invite plenty of natural light inside, while also framing views of the landscaped backyard.
Nearly every room of the house boasts original character, whether it be exposed brick, tongue-and-groove paneling, or refinished hardwoods. Sliding glass doors allow for seamless indoor/outdoor connection.
Toward the back of the home sits a spacious music studio and lounge, complete with direct outdoor access. The residence also features an airy corner office, as well as a bonus room that currently serves as a gym. The backyard is fenced in, creating a private suburban retreat.
