Recognized as one of Houston’s most upscale neighborhoods, River Oaks is home to designer stores, gourmet restaurants and a collection of extraordinary estates. Flourished with oak trees and well-manicured lawns, the neighborhood is a dreamy residential area home to Houston’s wealthiest residents. 

While the homes in the area may vary in architectural styles, all seem to sport original craftsmanship and stunning designs that reveal why River Oaks is one of the city’s most sought out neighborhoods. Adding to the list of estates we can only dream about is this 13,630-square-foot home located near Lazy Lane.

Built in 2021, the home features six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and four partial bathrooms. Heading up to the home, visitors are greeted with a stunning French White cast stone exterior and massive glass windows. This home is an ideal space for entertaining with its expansive backyard pool and climate-controlled wine room. Here’s a closer look at the property.
