If you are looking for acreage in the city of Houston, look no further than this beautiful Palladian style villa sitting just inside the beltway on 3.7 acres of land. This 21,032 square foot 7-8 bedroom, 8 full and 3 half bath home has its own 3 bedroom guest house, entertaining pavilion, pool and stables.
When you drive up to this Rivercrest estates country manor you are welcomed by a beautiful gate and amazing fountain in front of the home. As you enter through the 11 and a half foot double iron doors you are greeted with a massive entry and double staircase featuring hand-milled wood and beautiful iron work that guide you to the upstairs.
The rotundas from each porte cochere entry features gold-leaf domed ceilings and built-in glass front cabinets. The great room shows off its custom bowed ceiling and Taj Mahal marble fire place surrounded with an Evos hand-carved mantel supported by gilded lion caryatids.
The kitchen is perfect for a family dinner or entertaining. It features blue Labradorite countertops, Evos cabinetry, wolf wall and steam ovens, range and warming drawer, under mount stainless-steel sink, Asko dishwasher and full sized sub-zero refrigerator and freezer. And if that's not enough, there is an adjacent catering kitchen and butler's pantry that supports the main kitchen.
The master suite occupies its own wing on the second floor. The bedroom has beautiful curved ceilings with gold leaf highlights and French oak hardwood floors. It also has its own wide open balcony overlooking the perfectly manicured grounds. The master suite also has not one, but two unique master bathrooms. One features a wallpapered ceiling, crystal river marble counters and beautiful shower and tub. The second master bath shows off its deep blue sea granite steam shower with dual heads, carved cabinetry and gilded accents. It also has a custom free-standing claw-foot porcelain tub.
But it's the grounds that make this home truly spectacular. The 3.7 acres has its own guest home overlooking the commercial grade pool and beautiful six stall barn that can also double as an entertaining venue or a spacious six car or more garage, if desired.
This mansion isn't cheap. Current list price on 6 Rivercrest Dr. is $18,999,000.
