Former Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub's Tanglewood-area residence hit the market just recently, a $4.29 million, three-story manse with luxury amenities - including a great media room, of course.
Located at 5620 Bordley Drive, the traditional-style residence sits on more than 26,000 square feet of manicured grounds. Enter into the grand reception hall to an elegant spiral wrought-iron staircase. Formal dining and living rooms flank the entry.
From the dining room, owners walk into the butler's panty followed by the chef's-quality kitchen with bar seating around the expansive island. The adjacent morning room is the perfect place for informal meals overlooking the swimming pool in back. The den is fashioned for relaxing.
Take the spiral staircase or elevator to the second floor, where the master suite enjoys a large sitting area with fireplace and two full master baths and walk-in closets. In total, the house includes five bedrooms, six full baths and three half-baths.
The media room is a special treat, with star-filled ceiling and comfy, oversized seating. A fitness center is located on the third floor.
A summer kitchen with fireplace serves as a place for entertaining. The swimming pool and deck complete the inner courtyard, with expansive lawn just beyond. A gated motor court leads to the three car-plus garage.
