One of the most distinctive homes in this River Oaks Area neighborhood, this California-style contemporary home was custom built by the original owner-builder with design features & finishes ahead of their time. This elegant residence sets itself apart with its striking exterior elevations, sophisticated floorplan, extraordinary outdoor dining & living spaces with remarkably appointed summer kitchen & pneumatic elevator that opens to living areas on each floor. The beautifully appointed kitchen, with a huge island & pull up seating, opens to the generous living & dining areas. The formal dining is privately situated across from the home office/study & accessible through the butler's pantry off the kitchen. The striking wrought iron staircase takes you to the second floor where you find the main suite with screened porch & treetop views of the pretty patio. The home theater, den/office & terrace/summer kitchen are on third floor. Please view photos & video to capture flow & features!
