We’ve got some stellar news for you: An iconic abode nestled on Lazy Lane Boulevard in Houston’s illustrious River Oak’s neighborhood just hit the market -- and it’s perfect for you.

The Hines Villa, the former estate of one of the world’s most iconic real estate developers, the late Gerald D. Hines, is up for grabs.

Listed for $34,500,000, the sprawling villa features Italian influences reminiscent of the mogul’s holidays in Tuscany. Hines passed away last August at the age of 95. He enlisted world-renowned, New York-based Robert A.M. Stern Architects to design the 17,000 square foot estate, which was completed in 1992, according to a release.

The pricey property is represented by Cathy Cagle and Patricia Reed of Douglas Elliman. For more information, visit har.com.

Widely regarded as a visionary in the commercial real estate industry, Gerald Hines founded his namesake firm in Houston in 1957. He grew his business from a one-man operation into an enormous international real estate company.

The real estate firm is responsible for several of the city’s most recognizable buildings, including the Pennzoil Place, Williams Tower ( first names the Transco Tower), the Galleria, 910 Louisiana (formerly One Shell Plaza) and the 75-story Texas Commerce Tower (now JPMorgan Chase Tower).
