2240 Inwood Drive - PRICE REDUCTION
This dazzling Beverly Hills-style Spanish Colonial Revival villa has caught the eye of passersby since it was built in 2014. Authentic details – white-washed stucco walls, rustic terracotta roof, ornamental wrought-iron work, balconies, hand-painted tiles, striking archways and heavy wooden doors – are a marvel of workmanship, and it’s all integrated with state-of-the-art modern amenities, including an elevator and house generator. Spacious entertaining spaces include a grand reception hall and oversized formal dining room. An impressive chef’s kitchen opens to a large family room and resort-like loggia and pool. Spanish revival architecture became widely known as a result of the 1915 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, and prominent examples include the Ponce de Leon Hotel in Florida and the Hearst Castle in California. This River Oaks home is surely Houston’s most outstanding expression of the style. Price: was $4,200,000 – now $3,725,000. Click here.
