Rare opportunity to own this iconic property in Houston's Upper Kirby District. Known for his mastery of proportion and sculptural gracefulness, this home was designed by the famed modernist architect Ike Colburn and is the epitome of casual elegance. While centrally located just steps from some of the city's finest shops and restaurants, this home offers a peaceful refuge from the hustle and bustle. Elegantly enclosed by 13’ brick walls, sit 2 lushly landscaped courtyards where walls of French doors bring the outdoors in and offer a multitude of possibilities including escaping the heat with a dip in the pool or enjoying a winter evening in front of the outdoor wood burning fireplace. The charm and sophistication of this treasure is further captured in the thoughtfully reimagined and updated interior by esteemed interior designer Tom Scheerer and featured in his book: Tom Scheerer More Decorating. This beauty is not just a home, it's a piece of Houston architectural history.
