Unit 401, one of only 20 condos at Memorial Luxury Lofts midrise at 6007 Memorial Drive, begins with a welcome off the elevator to contemporary furnishings in the lobby hallway. Walk inside to 18-foot-high ceilings in the great room accented by two custom floor-to-ceiling windows affording views of the park and downtown skyline.
The first level's open floor plan brings together the three most-used spaces in a home, with the spacious kitchen at one end, large living area in the middle and elegant dining room at the other end. Stained concrete flooring keeps the flow stylishly uninterrupted. Find pearl white quartz countertops, custom cabinetry and stainless steel GE appliances in the kitchen. The living area centers around an 88-inch-wide, built-in TV with projector and the dining room is framed by an art wall designed by Intexure Architects.
All lighting and music throughout the residence is controlled with integrated technology.
Upstairs, the master bedroom employs more state-of-the-art technology with a custom-built glass wall enclosure with fading screens offering privacy without blocking views of the outdoors. The guest suite includes a tree top-like sitting area overlooking the great room. Both the master and guest baths feature modern tiling, quarts countertops and large designer vessel sinks.
Just off the breakfast room, the generous balcony gives residents a panorama of Memorial Park and a straight, open view of Houston's downtown skyline.
