Nestled in one of the most desired areas of close-in Houston, this stately gated home harmoniously unites architectural interest with style. Greeted by distinctive clean lines and manicured hedges, imposing doors open to a two-story entry anchored by a Travertine floor. A sweeping staircase with wood treads and elaborate wrought iron balustrade serves as the focal point of the pristine downstairs. Perfect in scale, the grand foyer is flanked by beautiful formals each adorned with stunning wood burning fireplaces. Twelve-foot ceilings give an illusion of additional space, while plantation-shutter dressed windows impart ample light, yet provide privacy where needed. Deep crown molding, handsome wainscoting, substantial baseboards and overall rich millwork dictate the fine craftsmanship that is used throughout the home. An open floor plan artfully interlaces the flow of the formals, den and kitchen area. The granite wet bar is located off the entry, perfect for ease of entertaining. A soothing kitchen features a Travertine floor, granite counters, Thermador five burner gas cooktop island, two convection ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator/ freezer, ASKO dishwasher and pull-up seating area. Granite butlers pantry connects the kitchen and dining room. Windows and doors independently couple the indoor and outdoor spaces in the breakfast area, creating a natural flow to the inviting back patio area. The master bedroom fully integrates the quality that is indicative of this home. Plantation shutters, crown molding and dual marble surround fireplace servicing the master and well-appointed study, complete this suite. The marble master bath has dual vanities, a Jacuzzi tub and a large walk-in shower. Two walk-in closets have chests of drawers and one boasts a packing island. There is an elevator shaft to all three floors. The second floor has 2 well-appointed en-suite bedrooms, in addition to the master. The third floor game room has a full bath and could be used as 4th bedroom.
