Talk about a multi-million dollar listing. With its $10.25 million price tag, this ultra-contemporary custom build by Frankel Building Group just became Houston's most expensive home sale since May 2016, closed this week by Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty agents Susan Boss and Stephen Warrell.

What does over $10 million look like? Specifically, eight bedrooms, eight full and five half baths, an accompanying two-story casita and fitness pavilion, and a 60,000-gallon pool and grotto connected to a resort-sized spa all on 3.5 acres.

There are all the other trappings of a super-luxury home, too, like a chef's kitchen, glass-walled wine room, six-car garage, and home theatre. Want a fireplace? Have three.

Perhaps most impressively, this is a bona fide smart home—fully equipped with a "Crestron system" that literally runs everything, from lighting to temperature to full audio and video surveillance.

Built in 2017, the property was designed to feel like "a boutique hotel managed by a world-class hospitality name brand," the listing declares.

And though it represents the priciest home sale in a hot minute, it's far from the most expensive asking price—for that, we turn to a neoclassical chateau ($30 million) and a River Oaks estate (literally) built for a prince ($20 million). And, if you missed your chance to jump at the 17,000-square-foot Rivercrest abode, both are still for sale.
