It’s no secret that Houstonians love their cars nearly as much as they love luxury. Drive through the tree-lined, winding streets of Memorial or River Oaks and you’ll see pristine Bentleys, Bugattis, Teslas, and Rolls. The city’s pretty spring and summer days sees vintage Caddys, ‘Vettes, their tops down, their owners enjoying the sunshine.
Now, there’s a home on Houston’s market that’s tailor-made for the car enthusiast. Imagine an eight-car garage with a work station, full air conditioning and industrial doors to keep the car collection safe. Now, imagine it in the heart of Piney Point, an oasis of serenity.
You’d have 1 Derham Parc St. Available for just over $2.8 million and offered by Nikki Simpson of Beth Wolff Realtors, the home’s sweeping front lawn and brick facing give the illusion of a manor house in the English countryside. Sprawling across 9,673 square feet, with seven bedrooms, eight full baths, formal living spaces and stunning grounds, this is a home that redefines gracious living.
The brick-laid front pathway through the green lawn leads to double doors that open into a breathtaking marble foyer flanked by the formal dining room and living room. Overhead, a massive, glittering chandelier catches the light spilling into the space. The wide staircase leads to a second floor bordered by a carved-wood railing and anchored by a massive multi-paned window.
Hardwood floors, brick accents and built-in shelving accent this home’s living spaces. A deep soaking tub sits against a mirrored wall in the master bathroom, while a third floor flex space seems to float at the top of the home.
The chef’s kitchen is a cook’s delight, with stainless steel Wolf appliances. Five fireplaces throughout the home provide not only architectural talking points, but cozy gatherings spaces on chill nights.
The resort backyard is place for entertaining and relaxation, with its lagoon pool, mosquito system, speakers and a putting green. A carriage house offers a private place for guests, featuring its own kitchen, living room and a full bathroom with sauna.
This is a home made for luxury, perfect for those who want every comfort imaginable. The garage alone will excite any car enthusiast, even as the house itself is easy to fall in love with.
This is a place where high living meets serenity, with access to every convenience Houston has to offer. In a world class city that loves gracious living, 1 Derham Parc stands in a class by itself.
