Eclectic Home

The current owner's eclectic taste is reflected in the dining room.

A very cool house just came on the market in Houston's West University neighborhood (home to the fabulous Joni of Cote de Texas fame). West U, as Houstonians call it, is known for its high-end real estate, its proximity to the medical center and the city's best shopping, dining, and fine arts district, as well as its small town feel.

This five bedroom house was built in 1997 and features four full and two half baths, over 5,000 square feet of living space, custom cabinetry and paneling, lighting, and finishes throughout, and a pool for the Texas heat. I love the eclectic, funky look of the house. The finishes, particularly the paneling in the kitchen and the geometric wall in the secondary bathroom are quite unique and although one could easily picture them in Metropolitan Home, they are unusual for Houston, which makes me love them even more. Overall, I get the impression that the family who lives here has a great sense of humor and knows how to have fun.

The exterior of the home features lush landscaping.

The hip kitchen and breakfast area

Living room

The formal living room is currently being used as a music room.

The built-ins and paneling in the study are decidedly modern (and refreshing) for Houston.

Serene Master Bedroom

The bright Master Bath is a very nice size

I just love this kids' room! The color palette is so fun and I really like the fact that there is symmetry present in almost every element. I particularly love the bedspreads and the rolling bunk bed ladder.

Awesome built-ins in the play room featuring galvanized bins

Another adorable kid's room

One of the secondary bathrooms features a very cool geometric pattern on the wall

The backyard features a modern pool and landscaping.

This fabulous home is being offered at $1,750,000.
