One of the most distinctive homes in this River Oaks Area neighborhood, this California-style contemporary home was custom built by the original owner/builder with design features and finishes ahead of their time. This elegant residence sets itself apart with its striking exterior elevations, sophisticated floor plan, extraordinary outdoor dining and living spaces with remarkably-appointed summer kitchen and pneumatic elevator that opens to living areas on each floor. The beautifully-appointed kitchen, with a huge island and pull up seating, opens to the generous living and dining areas. The formal dining is privately situated across from the home office/study and accessible through the butler's pantry off the kitchen. The striking wrought iron staircase takes you to the second floor where you find the main suite with screened porch and treetop views of the pretty patio. The home theater, den/office and terrace/summer kitchen are on third floor. Please view photos and video to capture flow and features!
