Located in Houston’s River Oaks neighborhood, this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath beauty is a bit like living in an art museum. The 6,300-square-foot modern home was built in 1989 and designed by noted Texas architect Scott Strasser.
The boxy space is organized around a private courtyard with walls of custom-designed windows that let in light and provide views to a fountain, trees, and mature landscaping. A minimalist, industrial feel dominates the home thanks to concrete floors and steel beams, and the modern kitchen is decked out in sleek grays and whites with a floating concrete countertop.
Designed with sight lines in mind and monorail art lighting, it’s the perfect place to display art; a sculpture visible from a hallway takes on a different feeling when viewed from the living room. Other perks include expansive bathrooms, a sauna, and a barrel ceiling in the master suite that runs nearly the entire length of the home. Looking for a museum-worthy home for your art collection? 3021 Avalon Place will be on the market for $3,250,000.
