The lowdown: Designed in 1970 by architect Jack Stehling, and extensively and thoughtfully renovated in 2018-20 by the seller, this midcentury modern masterpiece sits on a towering bluff above Buffalo Bayou.
Airy open spaces are complemented by full-length windows and glass slider doors, flooding the home with light. A magnificent, three-story glass atrium sits at the rear, offering panoramic views.
On the ground floor of that atrium you'll find a den with a fireplace, while a flex room with its own bath is on the third level. Elevated Ipe decks give the outdoor areas warmth.
Gleaming terrazzo floors can be found in the home's public areas, leading to a conversation pit surrounded by Madagascan Dalbergia rosewood paneling. A raised, octagon-shaped glass and metal skylight above the conversation pit focuses attention and increases already abundant natural light.
The secluded primary also comes with its own private atrium, along with maple floor and cabinetry, a rear wall of windows, and bespoke closet.
Its Zen-vibe bath also sports a wall of glass, while other fine touches include a herringbone-pattern marble tile floor, floating sink cabinet with vessel sinks, free-standing amoeba tub with floor-mounted fixture, and a glass and marble steam shower. A private coffee bar completes the retreat.
The modern island kitchen features sleek walnut cabinets and Italian statuario marble countertops, a Gaggenau cabinet—front refrigerator and freezer, Blumotion soft-close drawers, and a Bosch cooktop, all gleaming and sophisticated to match the home's overall vibe.
The sitting or breakfast area spotlights an antique Majestic indoor charcoal grill and is connected to a service hall with laundry, pantry, and access to the three-car garage.
