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.

Who needs the Cote d'Azur when you can have 2111 Troon? This stucco dwelling with its red tile roof bespeaks of the mansions that line the waters of the Mediterranean, belying its elegant perch on a hilltop (yes, a hilltop) in the heart of River Oaks. The house is overlooks a wooded ravine.

Architectural detailing captures the spirit of the luxe villas favored by French Riviera homeowners Angelina Jolie, Bono and Elton John. Thoughtful landscaping further enhances the romantic ambience.

What's inside: From the get-go, the house is impressive, even by the numbers alone — five bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths, an elevator, three fireplaces, four elegant covered terraces, a seven-car garage and quarters. To the count, add a spacious media room, a game room and an even larger den. And the best room of all — the climate controlled wine cellar.

Completed in 2010, the custom home is replete with luxe touches including designer wall and ceiling finishes, stone and walnut flooring. 

Views from the covered terraces on the ground floor are of the gardens and wooded surroundings while second floor balconies overlook the gardens with one offering a grand view of the downtown skyline.

Square footage:  7,258 sq.ft.

Asking price:  $3,495,0000

Listing agent:  Mike Mahlstedt with Heritage Texas Properties.
