From within the private gates of Stablewood, one of the most prized residential enclaves in Houston, the majestic Mediterranean-styled dwelling welcomes both large gracious formal gatherings and quiet family pursuits. An arched entrance door underscores its European heritage at the outset, as do traditional stone and wood floors. From here, guests enter the living room, a handsome space appointed with a fireplace flanked with tall bookshelves. Beautiful picture windows overlook the lawns, and a cozy den beckons nearby. Also on the first floor, the lovely master suite, created as a private oasis unto itself, features an elegant fireplace and luxurious bath. The second floor is devoted to family and guest bedroom areas. Outdoors, an inviting veranda offers alfresco dining in a setting from which to enjoy evenings under the stars.
