The Skinny: Here's a classic Texas home. Despite an "extensive renovation and expansion" before it was listed for all of $2.75M back in 2012, "considerable effort" was made to preserve the original 1930s detailing: the ironwork on the covered second-floor balcony, and the grooved walnut ceiling and stone fireplace in the living room, to name a few examples. Such "exquisite formals" and "generous living areas" turn this whitewashed brick beaut into the "ultimate entertaining venue," and to that end, the loggias, stone terrace, and pool out back also help quite a bit. Because the place is fresh off a modern update, the kitchen offers the holy trinity of Wolf, Thermador, and Subzero appliances, plus an island with a lot of real estate. The current ask for all this, along with a finely paneled library and a blood-red lounge with a colorful cast of stuffed and mounted beasts, is $1,999,900.
