A well-preserved homestead once belonging to astronaut Neil Armstrong is on the market, and sellers are asking $550,000 for the sizable property.
Nestled in the outskirts of Houston suburb El Lago, the property at 1003 Woodland Dr. is credited with preserving some of its original features with additional updated amenities like an HVAC system, a newly upgraded kitchen with granite countertops, and updated cabinets.
Sitting on a 17,102 square-foot lot, the house itself is 2,883 square feet and has a backyard featuring a brick-lined pool, fire pit, and backyard patio.
The property was listed on the market on Aug. 31 and highlights original features like a wood beam living room ceiling, stone fireplace, pink pool decking, and original staircase railings of the house built in 1964.
A listing realtor did not immediately respond to requests for additional information on the home Wednesday.
Just three miles from the Johnson Space Center, the home, often referred to as the "Moon House", housed the astronaut's family during the Gemini 8 mission, and the Apollo 11 mission, when Armstrong was credited for being the first to walk the moon on July 21, 1969.
The Clear Lake and El Lago areas, known for a rich history involving space exploration, have been called home to more retired astronauts and aerospace workers in the region.
Armstrong died in a Cincinnati hospital in 2012 at 82, following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, according to NASA.
