Situated on a prime 2+ acre wooded lot at the end of a cul de sac in prestigious close-in Memorial, this Neoclassical residence’s Palladian proportions, soaring ceilings, and sweeping, light-filled interior vistas offer architectural grandeur and magnificent design. No detail to please the eye has failed to be addressed in this splendidly finished and meticulously maintained estate, from the knife-like phalanx of columnar magnolias that screens the south boundary to hand-selected de Gournay wall coverings, book-matched Carrara marble floors, and platinum and gold-plated door handles. Set well back from the street and shielded by thick woodland from views of surrounding homes, this property’s exceptional seclusion is the more remarkable given its location a mere two miles from Uptown Houston and easy access to downtown. The floor plan in this magnificent home can accommodate a grand gala event, a dinner party with friends, casual poolside parties, or an intimate family gathering. The entry foyer is an ideal reception area with its’ open flow to the formal living and dining rooms. A cozy bar area is screened by the living room fireplace. The kitchen opens nicely to the family room. There is a luxurious guest suite downstairs. The free-standing circular staircase curls up past a wall of windows to the upstairs landing. A luxurious master suite with a spa-inspired master bathroom and custom-fitted walk-in closets. The paneled study offers a sophisticated work environment. There is a trio of secondary bedrooms with luxurious en suite bathrooms. Two bedrooms feature expansive lofts with vaulted ceilings. Accessed by staircase or elevator is the lower level which features a climate controlled wine cellar and intimate dining room. There is a spacious gym/playroom on this level. The outdoor living areas include a full summer kitchen, at 75-foot pool with race lanes, three water walls, and a spa. An open-air cabana faces the pool and features a bathroom with shower.
