5202 Green Tree Road - Houston, TX
The refined elegance of this custom Federal-style home is reminiscent of a John Staub, Cameron Fairchild, or Birdsall Briscoe era home that has been translated for a modern day lifestyle. The gracious entry foyer with its warm hardwood floors, arched doorways, thick crown moldings, and serpentine staircase is the welcome area that sets the tone for the rest of the home. The entry is flanked by well appointed formal dining and formal living rooms that are flush with natural light. Cozy study with richly stained mahogany millwork, a marble fireplace, and outdoor porch. Informal family room features large beveled glass French doors, beamed ceiling, custom cabinetry, and grand arched opening to the kitchen. Kitchen has a huge center granite island, breakfast area, farmers sink, slate floors, and high- end appliances. Master retreat downstairs with coffered ceiling, sitting area, and separate bath/closets. Secondary bedrooms and game room upstairs. An architectural classic.
