Houstonians love high living — and whomever buys this stunning home in Tanglewood will have all that in spades. The $4.2 million estate sits on nearly half an acre, and its 8,400-plus square feet beckon with endless luxurious touches. In fact, 718 Tanglewood Blvd., offered by Agatha Brann of John Daugherty, Realtors, boasts so many amenities, it might feel more like permanent staycation living.
A grand entrance
Walking through the grand entry way, the black marble flooring dramatically sets the stage for what's in store in this five-bedroom, five-full-bath home. The soaring ceiling, recessed lighting, and wood details make a statement that this is not just another chic mansion. Gathering spaces abound for hosting family and friends.
The palatial family room is an epic two-story affair with glass-panel doors opening to the sprawling backyard. The first-floor game room has its fridge and ice maker, with entry to a half-bath. Upstairs on the second floor, a state-of-the-art multimedia room boasts Savant sound and a projection system to rival any movie theater. Computer desks and built-in bookshelves highlight the home's den. There's even a third-floor exercise room, perfect for those who want to keep fit without leaving home.
718 Tanglewood has a cook's fantasy of a kitchen, with a Sub-Zero and a six-burner Wolf gas range, microwave, and warming drawers. The inviting space with a central island makes it perfect for both creating culinary masterpieces as well as hosting easygoing gatherings.
Meanwhile, the dining room is a fantasia of glass-front cabinets and stunning natural light, a space capable of seating more than a dozen people comfortably. For convenience, there's a butler's pantry and wet bar, adding to this home's ability to be a hub for entertaining.
The three-tiered master bedroom has a private balcony, hardwood floors and ample space to relax. Its dual closets have built-in dressers. In the master bathroom, a glorious marble-and-tile-affair, there is a dual vanity with counter-to-ceiling windows, designer lighting, a massive jetted tub, and steam shower. A wall of windows allows for natural lighting in this calming oasis, and there's a wall-mounted TV and refreshment counter for those who want to escape for a while.
Outside, the luxury continues in the form of a stunning outdoor kitchen and bar, not to mention the dazzling horizon pool that's perfect for gatherings or chilling out. The covered patio has its own TV and speakers, and will certainly be the place to be during patio season.
This is a home that beckons those who want the perfection of small details. But it's also a home that lets its residents know they need never leave, because everything they would ever want in a vacation is already right here; 718 Tanglewood proves there's really no place like home.
