Houston Property Dreams: A Mansion in the Woods and a Multi-Floor Library

We’re tracking all the most breathtaking homes in Houston for our property dreams.

By Stephanie Bartels

Houston is filled with unique and exciting neighborhoods with homes of every size, color and shape. From River Oaks to The Woodlands, there’s a variety of floor plans, bedrooms, bathrooms and even backyard landscaping that sparks the question, “are we really still in Houston?” 

This week we found a home with super-tall ceilings and a backyard oasis, homes with personal libraries, and a storybook-like cottage that looks like you flew out of Houston, and landed on Snow White’s property (after she totally revamped and supersized it, of course).  

Whether you’re on the hunt for your dream home or just window shopping, fantasize with us on the list below of our current property dreams. 

Outdoor Oasis

9 Gage Court, Houston TX, 77024

Featuring 5 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, stone tile floors, soaring ceilings and a dramatic entryway, you’ll find exquisite elegance at every turn of this property. Starting with a gated circular drive, porte-cochère and four-car garages; followed by a dramatic entryway that leads to an elegant formal dining room. The outdoor pavilion features a huge entertaining area and outdoor kitchen. If an outdoor summer soiree is what your summertime dreams are made of, this oasis is your property dream. 

Dreamy Personal Library

24 Farnham Park Drive, Houston TX, 77024

If you ever dreamed of owning your own personal library, this three-story home is your property dream. The first floor has a double-height rotunda library, vaulted gallery, bar, kitchen and breakfast room.  And since the library is a bibliophile’s dream, the primary suite on the second floor has access to the second level galleries of the library.  

Self-Care Retreat

With a classic farmhouse exterior and a spectacular curved staircase in the foyer, this property has "dream” home written all over it. The 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home in Spring has a stunning resort-style primary bedroom which includes a sitting area and an en-suite bathroom with a soaking tub. The kitchen has a huge center island and stainless-steel appliances, all located in a bright and airy room that is perfect for entertaining. It will be difficult to not feel like you’re on vacation when at home in this property.

Castle In Houston

Find yourself at home in a castle-like property without leaving Houston. This stunning River Oaks home features five bedrooms, five full and two half bathrooms. The open floor plan has high ceilings, hardwood floors throughout, a deluxe wet bar with a built-in wine fridge, a winding staircase and a 3rd floor game room. If you love to cook, then this kitchen is your spot. The chef’s kitchen has luxury Wolf appliances, quartz countertops and designer chandelier lighting. 

Cottage Retreat

2 Longbow Lane, Houston TX, 77024

Snow White’s cabin or a majestic home in Houston? It’s hard to tell at this 16,000+ square foot home near Houston’s Bayou River. Tucked behind tall willow and pine trees, this home includes 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 4 half baths, lush koi ponds, stone paths, natural elements and intimate spaces throughout. Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by a grand, two-story receiving room and library with a floor-to-ceiling view of the grounds.
