HOUSTON – River Oaks has many homes that lean toward the classic and modern, but this home on the market for $6,500,000 is a subtle mix of the two styles, blending new and older sensibilities -- at least as it is decorated at this moment.

The home at 3320 Chevy Chase Drive, built in 1989, has many modern staging elements -- modern paintings, abstract lighting fixtures and splatter paint. They’re likely a way to reach a multitude of buyers -- catnip to buyers who would see the home as a modern showroom, but also to traditionalists things that could easily be changed out without too much effort.

The Georgian Colonial home has a fanlight transom and a swans neck pediment over the front door, as well as stenciled hardwood floors in the foyer and moldings throughout. The staircase is grand, drawing the eye up to the 12-foot ceilings in the main living areas on the first floor.

A walk-in wet bar is between the living room and back library room. The massive, blue-painted library has a wall of windows and offers access to a climate-controlled wine room. The sunroom has pairs of French doors that open to the backyard patio and pool area. The kitchen and family room were remodeled by Houston-based architect Dillon Kyle for a more open living area concept, according to the full listing. The mansion features four or five bedrooms and a two-bedroom apartment or quarters upstairs. On the third-floor, there’s a game room and media room. An elevator goes to all three floors. The backyard has a green space, slate patio, pool, and outdoor dining areas.

Take a look inside the stately home:
