On the Market: H-town dream home


Old always beats new... it really is the truth isn't it? At least for me, I will generally prefer something that is vintage to brand spanking new. This is true not only with home decor/fashion, but also wilth a house itself.

So when I came across this home (you know I am kind of a real-estalker, right?), I flipped! It is the *perfect* Houston home. Houston, you say? Well yes, I keep tabs on the real estate market in a few different cities. And yes, sometimes my eye wanders out of my price range.... did I mention this home could be yours for a cool $6 mil? Nevertheless! Doesn't stop me from appreciating the gorgeousness.

Location, location, location is right up there in importance-level as the house itself. And this house is in an established area with beautiful, old TREES. Not having large trees, to me, is a huge drawback for newer construction.

It recently got a gut reno and I think the work they did ended up being spectacular- just truly a blank canvas! They have it staged beautifully, but I hope whoever ends up living here gives it loads of personality. Because, unfortunately, I feel like alot of homes in Houston are decorated in the same style. And the french style is gorgeous... but isn't variety the spice of life?

If it were my house, I would slap some high gloss paint on the back of those shelves and paint the window casements BLACK.

I think I could handle this being my bedroom. How cute are those tiny original windows on the left wall? Things like that are the best thing about old houses- love the quirks! I'm thinking I would make this room look something like this.

I would wallpaper that kitchen in something bold. Also, check out that butler's pantry...

And the mar.ble. And the arched doorways. It's just too much goodness.

The family room is perfection as well. I really love the ability to open the room up to the outside.

This backyard... I die. I can just see the boxwoods on the corners of the pool.

I would eat breakfast out here literally everyday. Rain or shine, like the mail.

Be sure to check out the full listing here, it gives some great detail about the extent of the renovation, the work that into this home and more pics. So, with all that said, anyone want to loan me some $$$?
