OWith so many people still reluctant to travel too far from home, and with many in Houston in the midst of spring break, it’s only natural that minds will turn to vacations. Not the kind you book in a quaint Victorian in The Heights or a luxury suite at the Granducca Hotel.
Rather, we are talking about a rather permanent stay – in a house that consists of living in a complex without leaving the city. There are homes for sale in Houston that could make any day a vacation with resort-worthy settings. Let’s take a look at some of Houston’s most popular real estate listings:
802 East Friar Tuck Lane
Behind the gates of this nearby Memorial neighborhood awaits a 10,200 square foot residence that is an oasis of luxury in the hubbub of Houston. The new construction home could be a dream full-time getaway, the ultimate vacation spot with enough resort-style amenities to discourage ever leaving. The expansive heated pool and spa serve as the backdrop for harmonious indoor-outdoor living with outdoor amenities including a fireplace, summer kitchen and full sports court.
DeeDee Guggenheim Howes of Compass has the list with the asking price at $6,295,000.
3842 Rock Piping
Architect Scott Strasser designed this modern 5,000 square foot home that practically screams “resort living.” Floor-to-ceiling glass walls open to create a sophisticated indoor-outdoor living space reminiscent of Bahamian resorts. And the spa-like master bathroom is connected to a private open-air atrium and features a large soaking tub, walk-in shower, and something you don’t usually find at a resort, a fabulous cupboard. In addition, the side yard features a living and dining room, a grass lawn, a modern and elegant swimming pool and a summer kitchen.
The five-bedroom house with office, extra room and wine cellar is listed for $3,780,000 with Lisa Kornhauser of Compass.
The double lot of this retreat in The Heights offers the feeling of leaving Houston behind and with the ability to walk to all neighborhood favorites such as Coltivare and Donovan Park, you won’t feel like you’re in the city that worship the automobile. Speaking of cars, extras here include an electric vehicle charging connection and a whole-house generator. Nine stained glass windows and skylights add to the allure.
