5917 Lake Street - Houston, TX
Renaissance on Lake Street. Architecturally captivating, this high-design, classical 2-story brick home offers approx. 5,100 square feet for living and entertaining, with 5 bedrooms and 4 full baths up. Its Italian Renaissance-inspired symmetry and rich, red brick elevations give its commanding curb appeal. Inside, the traditional, steady classical calm reveals the public and private rooms masterfully in a medley of creamy tones. Triple-arched windows are adorned with fanlight transoms, all set amid rooms of classical trim, with crown molding, fluted casework and carved rosettes. The home savors a formal bright sitting room with adjacent study (down) and an intimate, triple-windowed nursery (up) adjacent to the master bedroom. The 24’ long game room is just down the hall for the rest of the gang. Red oak flooring is extensive. Seven new KitchenAid stainless appliances (refrigerator, cooktop, dishwasher, ice maker, wine cooler, microwave and wall oven) update the kitchen's functionality and reliability. From kitchen preparations to breakfast chats at the eat-at circular counter, family life extends through a 28’ den with a wood burning fireplace, richly stained coffered ceilings, and 3 sets of Mission-style double French doors. It's truly very special.
