Located in one of Houston's most coveted locations, The Broadacres Historic District, this home is a stunning masterpiece. Situated on nearly an acre, this one-of-a-kind estate offers four bedrooms and five and one half baths, a 2-bedroom guest house and pool. Some of the many special details executed by Segreto are Venetian plaster walls, antique and glazed treatments on French-style carved paneling and molding, and stenciled flooring in one of the salons. Vintage oak floors in the Versaille pattern and antique French limestone are found in much of the downstairs living areas. Elegant and elaborate custom glass and steel doors flank the entry way and refrigerated wine closets. A Louis XV 19th C. French mantle fireplace anchors the living room surrounded by the polished look of the plaster walls with windows dressed with satin, gown-like draperies that are hand embroidered and hung from gilt rods with custom floral finials.
The perfectly proportioned kitchen designed for intimate entertaining has white quartzite countertops and a solid pewter center island with a carved, glazed antiqued border. Reclaimed beams and glazed perimeter cabinets with select pieces embellished with hand painted French designs inject a country French but dressy feel. An adjoining breakfast room has vast windows to the front garden. Multiple salons adorned with antique architectural elements are featured throughout the residence. The award winning master bath suite is distinguished by Sherle Wagner hardware at the main sink and floor-to-ceiling marble. Segretto finishes grace the ladies lounge with special treatments on the walls and cabinets. The master suite also has his own marble clad private bath. The backyard includes a storybook air conditioned playhouse.
This breathtaking estate is a rare beauty with countless enchanting features that exceed all expectations one might have for a luxurious yet comfortable lifestyle.
