It will surprise no one that River Oaks has more than its share of stunning homes that offer any number of over-the-top amenities. The manses and estates that line the neighborhood's shaded streets are some of the most sought-after in the city.

A River Oaks address tells the world: I have made it. And that is certainly something the next owner of 2511 Del Monte Dr. will  be able to say. This 8,900-square-foot, Al Ross Luxury Home offered by Compass is on the market for $5.75 million and it has a mind-blowing array of luxury lifestyle necessities.

Consider the showplace closet in the master bedroom. The two-story affair was inspired by Chanel's flagship boutique in New York. The spiral staircase is a dramatic touch, and the space is accented by LED lighting. In addition to floor-to-ceiling shelf space for shoes, handbags and more, there are stunning wardrobe cabinets with glass doors, ample seating space, and a mini bar. This is not just a space to store clothes and accessories: It is a place to revel in stunning fabrics and fashion and celebrate the fine marriage of function and form.

It would be easy to say the closet is the top wow-factor on the home, but that would belie the rest of 2511 Del Monte. A dramatic staircase winds elegantly from the first floor to the third, taking in the full sweep of the home. The wine room echoes a mini boutique wine shop tucked into a tiny Paris street, with modern lighting and shelf space that showcases the owner's wine tastes.

The state-of-the-art kitchen has a massive marble kitchen island, creating seating for six, with guests surrounded by a space made for the home chef. The backyard offers a pool and spa, with a cozy outdoor kitchen space allowing for effortless entertaining.

The master suite upstairs has a fireplace, along with striking bathroom with a soaking tub that overlooks the home's spacious, green grounds, and wide vanities, and marble-tile floors. The home's three guest bedrooms are oversized, giving the feel of an opulent resort hotel room, and offering plenty of space for relaxing and living. There's also a large apartment in a separate building on the home's property, and exercise and media rooms on its third floor.

“Our goal in building a home is to anticipate the features and amenities our homeowners crave,” said Al Ross, in a statement. “We create spaces with an eye towards making every inch not only beautiful, but equally important in functionality.”

2511 Del Monte offers a home experience that effortlessly blends modern details with River Oaks' traditional style. This is a house where past and present seamlessly exist, and every thoughtful detail has been considered.
