The Country French esthetics at 11 Crestwood are complimented by a nod to modern tastes.
The 11,475 sq.ft. house was built in 2013.
White-washed cedar beams plays to traditional while the vast expanse of windows is a contemporary detail.
Every regal dwelling needs a parlor such as this.
While the stairway winds through all three floors, the house has an elevator for convenience.

We have the perfect 2019 gift for our multi-millionaires looking for something special. How about the keys to 11 Crestwood, a splendid French chateau-inspired homestead overlooking Buffalo Bayou?
For a tidy $8.5 million, this gem of a residence quietly tucked off of Memorial Drive and within a stone’s throw of Memorial Park can be yours. Of course, there is probably some wiggle room in the asking price. But you will have to reach out to John Daugherty Realtors broker/associate Clayton Katz to express your interest.
In the meantime, this beauty at 11,475 square feet appeals with its clever mix of French architectural traditions and modern elements. For example, white-washed cedar beams cross the ceilings of the kitchen and living room where soaring windows offer views to the infinity pool and the tree-shrouded bayou beyond.
By the numbers, the dwelling has six bedrooms, six full baths, three half baths, a four-car attached garage, three gas fireplaces, a family kitchen, a catering kitchen, an outdoor kitchen and patio/deck, a rooftop deck, a media room, a study/library and “an extra room.”
The three-story house, stucco with a slate roof, was built in 2013 and is surrounded by parterre gardens and mature trees.
