This close-in Memorial mansion brings some Old World magnificence to Houston with its neoclassical chateau-like grandeur.
The main home is virtually secluded, as it sits at the heart of 2.5 wooded acres, surrounded by park-like grounds. The mansion itself offers an astonishing 27,000 square-feet (2.500 sqm) of lavish living spaces, which include 8 bedrooms, as well as 7 full and 4 half bathrooms. Among its high-end amenities one can count the exquisite gilt and delicately-wrought, hand-painted decoration, the meticulously reproduced period molding, the white marble tile and inlaid, hand-scraped hardwood floors, as well as the antique boiserie, chandeliers, and marble fireplaces.
The main rooms are spacious and inviting, whether it’s the reception hall, Versailles Room, music room, East gallery hall, or family room. The extensive kitchen is comprised of a number of distinct spaces, including a sophisticated entertaining kitchen, catering kitchen, sizeable butler’s pantry, and office.
A sumptuous chateau the likes of which you are unlikely to see many in Texas, this property is currently on the market for a staggering (yet fully justified) $43 million.(34.702.500 Euro).
