The stately brick Colonial nestled in poolside gardens high atop one of the exclusive drives in River Oaks beautifully expresses the traditional elegance of Houston’s most legendary estate setting. A floating staircase greets you in the entrance hall. Beyond, formal living and dining rooms display lustrous wood floors, crown moldings, and lovely marble fireplaces. A family room, bar, study, and exercise room offer other enjoyable settings. The five bedrooms are accompanied by a playroom and highlight a two-room master suite with marble his-and-her baths. Two staff quarters with a kitchen sequester privately. The handsome island kitchen area supplies one of the favorite settings with a charming firelit breakfast room that opens to the gorgeous pool patio, rose garden, and poolhouse.
