This attached home was the final to be built in a gated development of eighteen luxury townhomes in the Upper Kirby District of Houston, Texas. The design required the home to be attached to homes previously built. The project team paid particular attention to foundations, walls and roofs and their connection to existing neighbors. With a buyer signing up prior to breaking ground, the design team’s creativity and careful planning paid off.

With careful design and planning, this 5,700 square foot home was outfitted with both a front and rear courtyard on the tight 6,434 square foot lot. The exterior materials and style were dictated by the community, which required a white painted brick and a galvalume standing seam metal roof.
The target market segment seeks ample entertaining space, so the design includes a media room, billiards room, exercise room and sauna, wine bar and sleeping porch off the master.
The third floor media room joins with the billiards room and features wool carpeting, custom built mahogany cabinets and wainscoting and a custom wood countertop with mahogany and walnut inlays. Photo by Michael Hunter Photography.

This thoughtfully designed, exquisitely detailed and carefully executed townhome surpassed the very high expectations of its downsizing empty-nester buyers moving from the suburbs into the bustling urban neighborhood.
