Steeped in history, this magnificent home rests on approx. .83-ac. of verdant grounds lush with an immensity of aged greenery, in the gated and walled subdivision of Shadyside. Timeless architecture embraces each of the 16 homes exclusive to the neighborhood where Rice University and the Houston Museum District serve as its backdrop. Imposing yet gracious, this 1922 masterpiece designed by renowned architect, Birdsall Briscoe, is engulfed in architectural purity as it blends grandeur and inspiration at every turn. The vintage Briscoe feel is enhanced as the front porch graced by a soaring ceiling and Antebellum-flavored columns, introduces the majestic estate. The breathtaking entrance hall and stair hall artfully interlace the impressively proportioned rooms that are distinguished by lavishly detailed millwork. The living room boasts a stone surround fireplace and banks of windows yielding gorgeous views of the impressive front porch and circular drive. Epitomizing formal elegance, the dining room is empowered by an exquisite chandelier as it seamlessly flows to the breakfast room that has access to the balustrade framed patio. The mahogany library is replete with green marble surround fireplace while the bar cloaked in stunning marble walls, is an ornately dressed room that is ideal for intimate entertaining. The sun-lit family room interconnects with the kitchen which features professional appliances, private butler’s pantry and granite study hub. An elegant sitting room introduces the master retreat that boasts a veranda showcasing the picturesque rear grounds. Luscious bath and large walk-in closet accompany the suite. An English library landing unites 4 bedrooms with lavish en suite baths. A large hobby room is on the third floor. The writer’s cottage continues inspired architecture with marble entry, curvilinear staircase, living room, reading room, study, bedroom, 2 baths and kitchen. There is a porte cochere, basement and 5-car garage.
