HOUSTON – This Neoclassical residence’s Palladian proportions, soaring ceilings and light-filled interior vistas offer architectural grandeur and design. The 14,362-square-foot home sits on a 2.13-acre wooded lot in a resort-like setting at the end of a cul-de-sac in close-in Memorial.

The elegantly appointed estate, located at 324 Buckingham Drive, has hand-selected de-Gournay wall coverings, book-matched Carrara marble floors, and platinum and gold-plated door handles.

The estate, on the market for $13.7 million, features 3 levels which include five bedrooms, eight full baths, three half baths, private two-bedroom guest quarters, a master suite with a sitting room and a spa-like master bath; formal dining, a home office, a wine cellar, a wine dining room, a family room, six fireplaces, a lounge with full bar, an exercise room and sauna, a four-car garage and a heated pool plus 9,800 square feet of covered terraces and a patio.

The single-family home, built in 1992, is shielded by thick woodland. The property’s exceptional seclusion is remarkable, given its location two miles from Uptown Houston and easy access to downtown.
