living big in memorial
Memorial mansion boasting massive lot hits the market at $11 million
There's an old country song that declares, "Give me land, lots of land." To be fair, the song was talking about wide-open vistas under starry skies. But there's still something about a home on a huge spread, and that's just one of the things that makes 402 Timberwilde Ln. in Memorial so distinct.
The five-bedroom, six-bath home takes up 9,584 square feet and sits on nearly three tree-lined acres — on a lot that's more than 107,000 square feet. The sprawling estate is offered for $10.9 million by Lisa Kornhauser of John Daugherty, Realtors.
Built in 1995, its white walls and arched doorways evoke mission-style architecture, while the stunning dark wood beams that accent the ceilings give nods to farmhouse style. Add to that generous room sizes, an art studio, a tennis court, and breathtaking wooded views, and it's clear that whomever next owns 402 Timberwilde might never want to leave this enclave.
The home's front door opens onto a tiled entry way whose centerpiece is a stunning wood staircase. Formal living rooms and a first-floor library showcase the home's striking attention to detail, with hardwood floors. Wide windows allow for endless natural light. Imagine a space with 12-foot ceilings that feels welcoming and bright — that's the beauty of this home's layout.
The exquisite downstairs master suite has windows with plantation shutters, wide-plank floors, a ceiling fan, and a fireplace that gives the massive space a cozy feel. The modern bathroom has a long double vanity, a huge walk-in shower, and a soaking tub.
Upstairs, four additional bedrooms have en-suite baths, and there's a gorgeous, sloped-roof game room with its own fireplace and a view of the backyard. The pitched roof is outlined with 100-year-old wood beams. The home also features a mini-apartment suite with its own kitchenette, perfect for live-in in-laws or visiting guests.
The property at 402 Timberwilde is a showstopper, with giant trees and artfully done landscaping. The in-ground pool with a brick-tile pool deck is a natural place for outdoor entertaining, and there's ample space for a summer kitchen. A red-brick pathway leads to the tennis courts, and sweeping lawns give the home the feeling of being on an island in a sea of green.
Just off Memorial Drive near Hunter's Creek Village, 402 Timberwilde is close to everything Houston has to offer, but manages to be a world away from the city's clamor. This is a home that is inviting and made for living.
