Nearly every detail in this 1962 residence is spot-on for the midcentury enthusiast.

Now up for grabs in Houston, Texas, is a delightful midcentury abode that underwent a recent restoration by its architect and interior designer owners. Offering 1,850 square feet of space, the residence features a free-flowing open layout, along with three bedrooms and two baths.

Nestled on a lush lot with mature trees is 5443 Whispering Creek Way, a charming one-level midcentury that was recently treated to a top-down renovation. 

Built in 1962, the meticulously maintained home boasts plenty of original detailing to transport you back in time. Vaulted, beamed ceilings enhance the sense of space in the wood-paneled great room, which features a painted brick fireplace and a trove of midcentury furnishings. Floor-to-ceiling windows lining the walls invite natural light inside. 

Sporting restored midcentury furniture, the great room is a time capsule itself. Beamed ceilings contrast with wood-paneled walls, and an original brick-painted fireplace sits in the corner. A small dining area sits just off the kitchen.

Custom built-in shelving lines a wall in the formal dining room, offering plenty of storage space for books and collected memorabilia.

In the kitchen, retro countertops and cabinetry contrast with newly added stainless-steel appliances. The terrazzo tile lining the floor of this space extends into the living room. A long hallway separates the main living areas from the home's three spacious bedrooms, all lined with richly textured hardwoods.

In the vintage-style kitchen, original cabinetry mingles with modern appliances. Terrazzo tiles extend to the adjoining dining and living rooms.

Another view of the kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets provide an abundance of storage. 

Another look at the eating area off the kitchen. A pass-through in the wall connects the two spaces for entertaining.

Updated with new faucets and fixtures, the home's two full bathrooms also feature period details, including vintage colored tiles that run from the sink to shower.

In total, the residence offers three bedrooms, one of which includes direct access to the backyard. In addition to the sliding glass door, a wide window above the bed invites warm light inside the large space.

A peek at the covered patio located at the back of the house. With no rear neighbors and a fenced backyard, the half-acre property offers a private place to relax.
