Walk through

Welcome to penthouse 802 at Briar Place, 21 Briar Hollow Lane, now on the market and under contract for $899,000. Just four years ago, the unit was taken down to the studs and remodeled in a collaboration between local interior designer Brian Beatty and noted Houston photographer and builder Fulton Davenport.

Enter into the open floor plan to the comfortable living room and walls of windows filling the penthouse with natural light. An office with custom built-in bookshelves is tucked nearby. A large wet bar with mirrored back wall reflects the light from the living room.

 AstroTurf extends from the deck to the edges of the terrace, which is lined with filled planter boxes placed atop landscaping rocks. 

The dining room sits beyond the living room, with the kitchen just around a centered partition. Highlights in the cooking hub include an oversized island with bar stool seating and, of course, state-of-the-art appliances.

The master suite is accented with the headboard wall in a contemporary wall covering depicting trees. The master bath is complete with dual vessel sinks, walk-in shower and large soaking tub. A second bedroom with private balcony and full bath serves as a den for the current owners.

Step outside

Access to the terrace is from the living room. A wooden deck defines the outdoor kitchen and dining area, as well as the shaded covered arbor with more seating. AstroTurf extends from the deck to the edges of the terrace, which is lined with filled planter boxes placed atop landscaping rocks.
