The residence, which Neil Armstrong called home during his historic expedition to the moon, has been listed for $550,000, according to a release from the brokerage firm.
El Lago, Texas resident Armstrong, who died in 2012 at the age of 82, lived with his family in the mid-century home between 1964 and 1971.
The late astronaut became the first human to set foot on the moon in 1969.
It was not only his home, but also a kind of community. Built in 1964, Armstrong and fellow astronaut Ed White, who died on the Apollo I mission in 1967, bought three lots to divide among themselves. They built their houses and lived side by side for those years.
Set on half an acre, the architecture includes the original stone fireplace, stair railing, and nostalgic pink pool deck, the listing says.
Over 3,000 square feet, features include a lower-level family room with vaulted ceilings and large windows overlooking the backyard pool.
The kitchen, which has since been updated with new furniture, features quartz countertops with a breakfast bar.
The four bedroom, three bathroom property features a study, built in “secretary” desk in the master bedroom and a three car garage.
There is also a separate garage workshop with three spaces for restoration work.
The neighborhood is located at 1003 Woodland Drive and also features a community pool, splash pool and tennis courts.
Debbie Ashley of Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty holds the entry.
The house was last sold in 2020 and before that the previous owners Melinda and Richard Sutherland had lived there for 25 years.
The purchase would lead to some star power, so to speak.
“The community … has a long history of astronauts. There were over 47 astronauts living in this community and [Armstrong] was one of the first to actually be built when NASA moved here,” said Eric Shacklette, the former real estate agent. said fox 26.
