$24.5 Million Memorial Mega Mansion Hits Market as One of Houston’s Most Expensive Houses Ever

A Rare Look Inside a Personal Palace

BY // 12.03.19

Hold onto your champagne dreams and caviar wishes homebuyers. A Memorial area mega-mansion has just entered the Houston luxury real estate market and if you are yearning for a 21,738 square foot abode with 15 bathrooms and a basketball court, this baby is for you.

Of course, you might have to sell your stocks in order to even approach the asking price — a cool $24.5 million.

That price tag puts this astounding property at 9030 Sandringham among the most expensive listings in the city, second only to nearby 120 Carnavon, which went on the market in October for $29.5 million. That 26,639 square foot home rests on four acres just half a block from the Sandringham property.

The just-listed dwelling, rising in modern splendor across two acres, is the first Sullivan Stevens Henry Oggero & Associates residence to go on the market in Houston and it is stunning. For starters, we love the contemporary feel of the luxury aluminum Fleetwood windows and doors, just as we applaud the design which makes use of every square foot, no vast wasteful spaces as found in some of today’s new dwellings. 

Soaring ceilings, granite tile floors, a 10-foot long double-sided Montigo fireplace, a Carrera marble 42-inch walk-up bar, custom chandeliers,  two wrap-around staircases in glass and steel, Miele kitchen appliances, and a glass-paneled Sub-Zero fridge and freezer are just a few of the amenities that set this house far above the norm.

The eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms notwithstanding, the mansion boasts a library with spiral staircase to a cigar room, a true-to-size half basketball court, two kitchens, a state-of-the-art gym, a formal office, a raised playroom, a hair salon, a main gathering room, a family room, guest suite, and a fabulous loggia featuring a Viking grill, a wood burning pizza oven, bar seating, and terrace reaching to the vast swimming pool.

The dwelling, completed in 2011 after fours years of meticulous construction, is listed with Mike Mahlstedt and Katie Forney of Compass. Click thru the photo gallery below for a closer look inside 9030 Sandringham:
