A 1960s River Oaks mansion just hit the market, with a prestigious address and steel-and-glass back rooms set out among the trees.

The house was built by architect Howard Barnstone for original owners John and Lois Maher. In 1987, it was sold to oil company president Mary Ralph Lowe.

Since 1996, it's been in the hands of personal injury attorney Richard Mithoff and his wife, philanthropist Ginni Mithoff, and has received several rounds of updates from the current and former owners, including a new front facade. Its distinctive feature, the rooms at the back of the house with three glass walls that overlook Buffalo Bayou, has remained intact, with the Mithoffs simply updating the glass and adding solar screens.

The 11,700-square-foot house at 2930 Lazy Lane has five bedrooms, 7 baths, a guesthouse and a four-car garage, and sits on five acres on a street that was named, in 2015, one of the top five priciest in America. If you have $20 million to spare, it could be yours. If not, click through, and you can still get a peek at one of the most coveted addresses in Houston.
