This sophisticated modernist home in a secluded, upscaling, near northside location, has southern views of the Houston skyline and is adjacent to 5 acres of adoptable Harris County preserved land. Designed by Benjamin Notzon, AIA, whose “driving design concept was to frame views of the landscape,” this gracious home brilliantly blends indoor/outdoor living. Peaceful private areas flow seamlessly into large scale entertaining spaces. A commercial builder began with a steel skeleton and incorporated commercial grade components throughout. No expense was spared when selecting top quality materials, amenities and finishes. From the dramatic entrance you notice spacious gallery walls, dark bronze windows, and the impressive open staircase around which the home is centered. 2nd floor horizontal ribbon windows in the living, dining and double island kitchen areas frame the treetops. Retractable glass doors open onto an expansive outdoor terrace. The tranquil primary bedroom and luxurious bath share the third level with a clerestory windowed library, adjoining office and two terraces, one with a spectacular Downtown view and the other overlooking 95 protected acres.
