This elegantly composed estate designed by renowned architect Birdsall Parmenas Briscoe exhibits gorgeous American-eclectic architecture, harmonious proportion and full-bodied ornamental detail.
Exquisite crystal chandeliers grace almost every room, adding sophistication to each space. An original Otis elevator with brass cage doors, walnut hardwood and marble floors as well as custom Oncken & Sons cabinetry are just a few of the delightful details showcased. A distinguished interior aesthetic will excite guests from the moment they step through the stunning formal entryway.
A completely renovated kitchen spares no detail showcasing white granite counters, custom designed cabinetry with coordinating walnut-topped island, Carrara marble floors, dual porcelain farmhouse sinks and state-of-the-art appliances including dual KitchenAide dishwashers and a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator. A lovely private library features extensive mahogany woodwork.
The striking master suite beautifully accommodates crystal sconces, a welcoming gas fireplace with antique Georgian-style marble surround, plantation shutters and luxe dual baths. Two full guest suites, a chic morning room, air-conditioned basement, walk-around attic and laundry room complete the interior.
The exterior provides an immense tree-lined yard featuring stunning professional landscaping by John Troy as well as original ornamental ironwork on balconies, walkways and gates by Weber Iron and Wire Company. Multiple statues, fountains and an outdoor fireplace contribute additional ambience. A three-car garage offers a hobby room on the second level. Previously a two-bedroom apartment, the entire area has been gutted and converted into an extensive home gym with rubber floor and full bath.
Located in gracious Olmos Park, this trophy property beautifully blends designer updates while preserving the invaluable history of this home.
