A gentle crest within walled and gated grounds emphasizes the classic architecture of this 1930s estate rimmed with lush landscaping. Period glamour begins with a parking court edged with a dual entrance staircase wrapping around a fountain and ascending to an entrance punctuated with archways and columns. Sculptural stucco ceilings and doorways, pegged wood floors, and a tiered, iron-embellished staircase offer a fitting entrance to the finely restored interior that doesn't stray far from its original charm. The foyer classically separates the sunlit living room with Italianate fireplace surround and arched windows paired with French doors to the outdoors. Banquet dining is off the other side, plus has easy access to the gathering kitchen for occasions. Work and play come together with a crisply tiled library and card room with wet bar and fireplace, plus a separate adjoining home office. The kitchen has been opened and expanded to encourage gathering with a columned dining island as well as a freshly decorated, sunlit breakfast spot and a Redondo tiled conversation area. Color-washed cabinetry integrates a gas cooktop and custom front SubZero, with glass front cabinetry for display. Nearby French doors invite you out to a loggia with exposed beams and fans, for al fresco dining across views of the tiled pool, while a Redondo tiled terrace adds chic entertainment space under the palm trees and shady large oaks. Upstairs, grand bedrooms offer privacy with personal space including a master bedroom with a sitting area, and a second bedroom with a Juliet balcony overlooking the grounds. Two other bedrooms, equally spacious, suit your needs with ease. The four unique baths offer the magic of the era with tiled wainscot and mosaic floors plus a touch of vintage fixtures. At the lower parking level is a basement home gym, with an outdoor view. Conveniently located close to The Pearl, Zoo, and Brackenridge Park.
