French dreams meet Bunker Hill and Memorial elegance in a special Nouveau Luxury Builders-Tracy Design Studio project. The result? A Houston manor fit for kings and queens with one acre-plus grounds and a multitude of grand fittings and features that would impress even the most jaded architecture and design connoisseur.

Say hello to 721 Ourlane Circle in the exclusive Manior D’Ourlane subdivision. The experience begins as you arrive and admire the warm light flowing from the property’s large and abundant windows. A glass door beckons from the formal entry. You’ll know you’re home, ready to live and entertain in more than 12,000 square feet of space surrounded by lushly landscaped splendor.

One look at the understated formality of the swimming pool will make you swoon. . . and yes, that is Belgian limestone around the pool and spa.

Robert Dame designed this home, and his vision was expertly carried out by Nouveau Luxury Builders.

Michael Afshari of Happen Houston is this unique home’s listing agent. The asking price for 721 Ourlane Circle is $9,980,000.

Robert Dame designed 721 Ourlane Circle, and his vision was carried out beautifully by Nouveau Luxury Builders. The home’s expansive public spaces make it more than ideal for COVID-19 era gatherings, and you’ll appreciate the way the indoors and outdoors flow artfully into one another. Open the steel and glass folding doors in the formal living room and gain access to (and get unfettered views of) the pool and spa.

Imagine the pre-dinner cocktail conversations that could play out in these spaces.

The formal living room features expansive views of the pool and spa through foldable glass and steel doors.

Entertaining means food and drink, and if you love to cook and uncork, this Bunker Hill estate’s culinary centers will not disappoint. There is more than enough space for your own cooking brigade.

And wine lovers will be truly wowed. The glass-enclosed wine cellar holds more than 1,000 bottles and boasts limestone walls and intelligent storage solutions. A 15-foot tasting bar completes the scene. It’s almost like having your own mini Napa. At home.
