Editor's Note: Houston, the surrounding areas and beyond are loaded with must-have houses and properties for sale in all shapes, sizes and price ranges. In this continuing series, CultureMap snoops through some of the best and gives you the lowdown on what's hot on the market.

Entertaining is always en vogue at this brand new Museum District residence where the entire first floor is designed in grand lobby-style fashion with a chandelier- and column-lined entry leading through the large open floor plan. The kitchen is easily at hand to keep the party food coming and the drinks flowing.

Walk through
Located at 1302 Milford St., the three-story house has a red-carpet style entry with a marble-inlaid runway traveling from the front door, through the living and dining areas and all the way to the kitchen. A sports bar is complete with four flat-panel screens for multiple viewing. Beveled oak floors are throughout the first floor, including the tucked-away study detailed with antique barn wood. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring natural light into the study and the entire space.

The kitchen includes top-of-the-line Thermador appliances, oversized island and butler's pantry. A mud room is located off the attached two-car gated garage on this corner lot.

All four bedrooms are located upstairs, accessible either via the staircase or elevator. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and walk-in closet. The master bath features dual vanities, soaker tub and large walk-through shower separated from the bath by a partial privacy wall. Also on the second floor are the media/family room and three spacious bedrooms with full en-suite baths. The third-floor room is a bonus.

Step outside
A covered patio plumbed for a summer kitchen and wired for a flat-screen television overlooks the courtyard. The house, never lived in, sits on a 7,649-square-foot lot.
