Houston’s housing market recently welcomed its latest eye-catching addition: A striking three-bedroom, five-bathroom residence in the popular Museum District. Local architect Allen Bianchi built the contemporary 3,783-square-foot home in 2010. He worked closely with his client—who is the current owner—to create "a marriage between the indoors and outdoors," as the client puts it.
"My objective was to bring elements of nature inside," states the homeowner. To accomplish this goal, the main level features a tall, curved glass wall that frames the interconnected living spaces. The dramatic glazed partition brings an abundance of natural light into the home and also offers direct views of the private backyard and pool area.
Throughout the interior, light marble floors complement the predominately neutral palette. A formal dining area and open kitchen are located just steps from the light-filled living room. The modern kitchen features all-new appliances and a central island that provides additional storage and seating. On the other side of the glass wall, a covered outdoor dining area sits adjacent to the heated saltwater pool and hot tub.
While the free-flowing layout of the main level caters to entertaining, the second floor presents a more private atmosphere for residents and guests. Each bedroom features an en suite bathroom. The primary suite also offers a large walk-in closet, as well as a balcony that overlooks the private outdoor area.
The home’s upper level also includes a spacious media room with a wet bar and desk area. In addition, floor-to-ceiling windows flank a number of rooms on this level, which offers residents generous views of the lush front yard. "One of my favorite features of the home is the view of the towering oak tree from inside," states the owner. "Throughout the seasons, you can watch the colors of the leaves change shades."
