Mid-Century Modern Brookhollow Masterpiece In Lufkin, Texas
Today we see many different Mid-Century Modern (MCM) elements come back into style. They are usually recreations of the aesthetic and are limited to furnishings.
What if your entire home was legit MCM through and through? I was amazed that I had never seen this house in Brookhollow, as it is essentially a Millennial Valhalla.
It has the iconic sunken living room, floor-to-ceiling windows, and other quirky features that you just can't find anymore. Current architects trying to recreate this type of open-concept home should take note.

The MCM movement started in the mid-1940s and ended around 1970. The home is at the end of a cul-de-sac and was built in 1966.
To me, that means that this home was built at the pinnacle of everything MCM. The original clean and functional design fits in nicely with all the updates.
It's located at 1407 Brookhollow Drive and has five bedrooms along with three full bathrooms situated on an entire acre. The large main bedroom has a fireplace and an oversized closet.

The kitchen has been completely remodeled with soapstone countertops, a gas range, stainless steel appliances, and open shelving. The large lot, mature trees, and landscaping create a retreat-like atmosphere.
You will notice in the pictures below that one of the bathrooms has the most interesting toilet placement. I can only imagine there is a story of how it ended up that way.
