The 20-foot-high gallery, just off the entry, with its polished concrete floors and museum-white walls, is flooded with natural light from the quadrant of oversized skylights. The flexibility of the space allows it to function in a variety of ways — from intimate dining to lavish entertaining. Just beyond the gallery is a spacious living room, highlighted by a floor-to-ceiling glass wall with sliding door that opens onto the landscaped courtyard shaded by mature trees. Punctuating the glass wall is a fireplace encased in striking custom steel panels.

Adjacent to the living room is a dining space opening to both the kitchen and courtyard. The gourmet kitchen features custom Danby marble counters and white oak cabinetry. The stainless appliances include a Bertazzoni gas range with convection oven, Liebherr refrigerator, and under-the-counter wine refrigerator.

The dramatic custom steel and white oak staircase leads to the second floor, which is finished with white oak flooring throughout. The master bedroom features a fireplace with custom surround, sitting area, and a balcony overlooking the backyard. The spa-like master bath includes marble counters with double sinks and custom cabinets, as well as a white-tiled shower room with soaking tub and frosted glass wall overlooking the treetops. The walk-in master closet contains built-in custom cabinetry.

A stunning glass and steel bridge overlooks the gallery and connects the master to the utility room and a second bedroom. This bedroom includes a walk-in closet with additional under-eave storage, along with an ensuite bath surrounded in white tile.

With a metal roof, powder room, sound system, gated alley and two-car garage, the home is conveniently located near the Katy Trail and the Knox/Henderson/Uptown shops and restaurants. Listed by Faisal Halum with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
