French Country Inspiration
A unique gem in the Lone Star State, this refined manor — in the idyllic environs near the River Oaks Country Club and Memorial Park in Houston — was inspired by the quintessential estates of Provence. Balancing French country design with a dedication to modern comfort and convenience, it boasts a stately limestone façade, five bedrooms, nine luxurious baths, top-tier appliances, an elevator, and impressive storage.
Many elements in the home are antique or were created using the finest materials and craftsmanship, from hardwood floors, marble fireplace mantels, impeccable millwork, stalwart ceiling beams, eye-catching ceramic tile, and brass hardware to a carefully chosen collection of French and Italian-crystal sconces and chandeliers. The home is infused with regal openness and a gracious Old World aesthetic yet remains warm, welcoming, and cheerful.
Each featuring wood-beamed ceilings and ornate fireplaces, the formal living and dining rooms feel ideal for intimate gatherings or large, festive crowds.
Both stylish and state-of-the-art, the kitchen is impeccably appointed with marble counters, an oversized artisan-crafted island, abundant cabinet space, a dramatic copper hood for the dual-oven six-burner range, and a full complement of appliances from Sub-Zero, ASKO, and Wolf.
A scullery and a peaceful family room are steps away.
With its steel and glass walls, the sophisticated orangerie is an alluringly sunny oasis with a wet bar, a nearby wine chiller, and a sweeping view of the serene landscaped grounds.
In the secluded backyard, an inviting swimming pool with deck jets is surrounded by an emerald lawn, mature oak trees, and a whimsical pergola designed for alfresco amusement and leisure. Just off the four-car garage, a motor court offers ample parking for visitors.
