Property Description

Take a trip to the Cotswolds in the English countryside without ever leaving Houston! This English Manor Estate is ideally situated in the bucolic Tall Timbers section of River Oaks. Quietly tucked away from the hustle and bustle yet just minutes from The Galleria and Downtown Houston. Beautifully designed to be an authentic Storybook Manor, this home was built of only the finest materials, from the imported English limestone to the rough hewn slate floors and textiles from European design houses. The perfect floor plan works comfortably for day to day family living but easily handles events for hundreds. Whether your catching a flick in your home theater, enjoying a Martini in the Billiards lounge, or just enjoying a special dinner in the wine cellar, this home can accommodate. Or get the whole family together in the kitchen and open family room. Separate guest house, loggia and summer kitchen, pool and hot tub add additional endless opportunities!
