Once in a while, an architect gets a call for the dream job. Several years ago, Graham Greene, a principal with Oglesby-Greene Architects, got that call. The client wanted a timeless home built on a beautiful lot that would capture its natural setting  Green went above and beyond, creating an architectural icon at 40 Braewood Place in Glen Abbey. Every iconic home needs a name, so we’re christening this estate the Glen Abbey Glass House.



I am being sooo lazy this week, but I could not stay away from the keyboard when I saw this home. Oh. My. God. I honestly almost called Vicki White at Keller Williams to tell her she had a typo on the price — but no! This is the real deal: 2550 beautiful and renovated square feet for $289,900. The split-level home is located on a gorgeous, treed one-half acre in Lindenwood Park, the “L Streets”, and has been totally updated. Built in 1963, you get those lofty Cathedral-style ceilings that were a precursor today’s soaring heights in every new construction. The home has four bedrooms and three baths, and is very light and bright. Get this: master and one bedroom on the first floor! Other updates include the kitchen, HVAC, wood floors and carpet. And yes, Virginia, there is granite in the kitchen and all baths. Want a real treat? An oasis awaits right outside the back door, and you are only a short run from White Rock Lake or Casa Linda.
