Posh. Need I say more? This three-story mansion in a quiet, gated community is glamorous enough for a starring role in a Hollywood film. Think the swank contemporary beach house where Weekend at Bernie's was filmed. But rather than a view of the ocean, this pink beauty in the Memorial area is wrapped in a generous cloak of shade trees with views to the verdant bayou.

What's inside: Focal point of the open floor plan is the main living area with 35-foot ceilings that deliver a warming flood of light into the dining and living rooms, which are joined by a double-sided fireplace. Also at ground level, the chef's kitchen opens to a cozy morning room with views to the bayou.

Five bedrooms, six full baths, one half bath, a study, home theater, two game rooms, a 1,500-bottle wine room, saltwater pool, striking loggia, and quarters are assembled in thoughtful, contemporary plan.

The property includes a walking trail that extends along the bayou.

Square footage: 7,978 square feet.

Asking price: $2,350,000.

Listing agent: Richard Ray with John Daugherty Realtors.
