Historic & updated home of NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong with pool & yard

Here’s your chance to stay in a piece of history at this unique El Lago home, formerly owned by NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong during the iconic Gemini and Apollo missions! Also featured in the movie Apollo 11, this historic mid-century home sits on nearly one-half acre in a quiet neighborhood yet within easy reach of downtown Houston, a little more than 30 miles away. Nearby you’ll find many restaurants and bars on the shores of Clear Lake and Trinity Bay, as well as attractions like the Space Center Houston and Kemah Boardwalk, both around four miles away.

At home, spend time outside enjoying the expansive, enclosed yard. Relax on the pergola patio while the kids play in the private pool or spend the evening roasting marshmallows around the chiminea.

Inside, you’ll find a thoughtful blend of modern updates and original charm, including stylish mid-century-inspired furnishings. High, beamed ceilings, a stone wall in the great room, updated flooring, and abundant natural light create a characterful, bright space. The updated kitchen boasts sleek stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, tons of cabinetry, and an open layout ideal for spending time together. Grab a bite at the breakfast bar or sit down for a complete meal at the adjacent dining table.

After a day of exploration, unwind in the central air-conditioning while the washer/dryer takes care of any laundry. Use the free WiFi and dedicated office space to knock out any remote work, then sit down with the family to stream the latest release - or rent Apollo 11 - in the great room. A restful night’s sleep awaits in any of four serene bedrooms, including a primary suite with a private, spa-like bath. Whether you’re an aspiring astronaut or just want to relax by the pool, you’ve found the perfect getaway at Over the Moon - all that’s left to do is book it.
