As Houston’s Post Oak Boulevard becomes more and more a glamorous high-rise canyon akin to New York’s Park Avenue, there are penthouse condos that would suit any aspiring Manhattan billionaire. This 9,500 square foot residence, priced at $7,999,999, is one of them. It would easily cost three times that amount in the Big Apple.

So with all of the Mr. Bigs moving to Houston in this post-pandemic rush, we present The Astoria penthouse, with six bedrooms, six baths and more amenities than probably any other penthouse in the city. Luxe, luxe, luxe.

The dream pad perches on the 28th floor of the high-rise at 1409 Post Oak Boulevard. The buyer gets the entire floor that includes a 1,338 square foot balcony covered in lush artificial turf. Plus, a private pool and spa.

The vast dwelling comes with a movie theater; a golf simulator space; a Himalayan sauna and steam room; an exercise room; a wet bar; a 600-bottle, climate-controlled wine room; and its own private-access elevator.

The grand residence, completed in 2014, was designed by award-winning Laura U Design Collective. Design notes include a dramatic entry with Italian Bardiglio marble flooring, a four-screen video wall, floating shelves and custom lighting fixtures. The main living area with grand views to the Williams Tower and surroundings features four-inch hardwood oak floors while the adjacent dining room in the open floor plan comes with Calacutta gold marble floors.

The chef’s kitchen is state-of-the-art with custom Eggersman cabinetry, glistening quartz countertops and glass backsplash and is equipped with stainless steel Miele appliances. In addition, there is the must-have (for the very wealthy)  butler’s catering kitchen.
