HOUSTON – A River Oaks mansion is on the market for $6.1 million.

The home -- considered a “landmark revitalized,” according to the listing -- is on nearly half an acre within the Country Club Estates. With four bedrooms and four full bathrooms and two half baths, the home was built in 1938 and has an English traditional style that doesn’t skimp on space with bright, airy rooms comprising its 7,835 square feet of building space.
