Houston House and Home featured the Beallmeade Addition in their April issue. Charles W. Oliver, staff architect for the River Oaks Corporation, designed this compact but extravagantly picturesque Spanish style house for advertising man Pierre L. Michael. It was completed in 1926 and renovated by William F Stern and Associates in 1986. Designers Andrew McFarland and Gretchen McFarland, the current owners, worked with HR Design Dept architect Eric Hughes to create a modern, respectful addition. In collaboration with the owners, Eric worked to adapt the older home to the growing family while preserving the landscape and scale of the original home. The 1400 SF addition and 600 SF garage were completed in 2014.
