Italian Villas for Sale in Houston, Texas for $ 6.5 Million
Some estates define the word “extra” in the best possible way, and this gem that recently hit the Houston real estate market is a perfect example. Known as The Villa, this $ 6.5 million mansion was inspired by seemingly old-world Italian luxury, but has all the smart features that help it thrive in modern times.
The 5-bedroom, 5.5-bath estate was built in 1925 and has been remodeled twice and is essentially “a new home,” reported the Houston Chronicle. The villa even made an appearance on HGTV’s “Million Dollar Rooms” in 2011.
“Located in the prestigious historic district of Boulevard Oaks, the villa combines the best materials and ancient architectural ornaments collected from all over Europe and Italy,” the listing on Realtor states. “The kitchen has been beautifully redesigned and the renovation of the second floor included the addition of several luxurious en-suite bedrooms and a fully renovated owner’s suite.
The house is equipped with modern conveniences including an elevator, whole house generator and smart home technology.
Greek statues are featured in the 8,602 square feet housekeeping – both inside and out – as well as stained glass and paintings, as the photos show.
“The statues throughout the house are truly Roman, Italian, Pompeii and they are all exact replicas of the originals,” listing agent Mitch Beasley told the Houston Chronicle.
Other features of the estate include a new master bedroom (the original master bedroom has been converted to an additional guest bedroom), a 2-car garage, summer kitchen, swimming pool, and spa / hot tub , according to the Houston Chronicle.
