6 W Rivercast Drive
Everyone wishes their home could feel like heaven, but few compare to this Mediterranean-style property.
The house looks like a mansion from the outside and has just the right size – the massive property sprawls across 3.7 acres of gated land and is 21,032 square feet.
At first glance, the house’s Italianate design is obvious, from the terracotta roof, exterior columns, and round arches. The home’s finishes include the finest selection and craftsmanship around the world.
The interior is nothing short of lavish. The entry enhances the home’s Mediterranean style with an emphasis on symmetry. You are greeted by a large chandelier and a double quarter turn staircase that leads to a majestic landing on the second floor.
The second floor opens to the living quarters. The master bedroom is decorated with not one, not two, but three chandeliers, a huge open window looking out onto the backyard, Victorian curtains and a built-in fireplace.
The master bathroom is fitted with blue marble countertops, convex mirrors, a clawfoot tub, and an enclosed oasis encased in matching blue marble. You’ll find similar Calcutta marble in the kitchen, nine bathrooms, and a walk-in shower.
The upstairs game room is ideal for entertaining large parties. The interior corridor includes a small bar, sofas for lounging, and access to the second floor balcony, which is also spacious enough for an overnight stay.
The complex is fitted with dark walnut furniture, adding to the home’s stately appearance. The kitchen offers walnut wood cabinets, but the deep colors are offset by a pair of cool teal light fixtures, a focal point in the breakfast nook.
Where the family eats will never be a question as at home there is seating in the kitchen and dining room. You’ll fall in love with the wine cellar on the first floor, where you can let your favorite cabernet aged and stock your best whiskeys.
The bookworm in the family will delight in the dorm’s wood-panelled library and adjoining study. The room is perfect with a fireplace and antique tufted furniture, especially for nights when you want to relax with a good book.
As you tour the property, the extravagance only deepens. The house contains world-class stables for the horse rider in the family. Tell Laura Sweeney and Colton Wilson, the real estate agents who have listed the home Houston“6 West Rivercrest Drive offers a rare opportunity to own one of the premier equestrian properties within the city limits of Houston.”
The pool is an extension of the home’s luxury, with a serene waterfall tucked between double cast iron gazebos with vaulted ceilings. You can see the beauty of calm waters from the main house and a distant view of the three bedroom guest house.
