As early as 1925 when Glendower Court was first platted on the shoulder of River Oaks, the 141 homesites have held a certain prestige well beyond the coveted 77019 zip code. Today, it is one of Houston’s most sophisticated and charming neighborhoods, thanks in no small part to thoughtful changes in deed restrictions and the owners association bylaws in 2004. This week, one of the hamlet’s award-winning residences hits the market.

The contemporary neoclassical beauty at 2521 Westgate, designed in 2016 by Mirador Group, was awarded the 2015-16 Sub-Zero Wolf KDC Kitchen of the Year Award and two 2017 ASID Ruby Awards: Best Outdoor Living Space and Best Primary Bath. In short, this residence is a contemporary knockout.

This 6,300 square dwelling carries a $3,990,000 asking price. Patricia Reed of Douglas Elliman Real Estate is the listing agent.

The arched gateway entry provides a direct sight line through the front door, past the courtyard and entry foyer into a secluded pool courtyard that boasts a stunning two-story outdoor fireplace as a dramatic centerpiece. The summer kitchen and the first and second floor loggias add to the outdoor living space elegantly designed for entertaining and relaxing. 

“Aesthetically, we designed this home to be a striking modern oasis in the city with highly contrasted black, white and brass finishes in classic silhouettes,” says Jerry Hooker, principal of Mirador Group. “A playful conceal and reveal layout allows one to discover the unique features of the home as they explore around every corner.”

The floor plan includes five bedrooms each with a full bath, one half bath, elevator, a library/home office, climatized wine room, spacious second floor family room, and beaucoup light as the townhouse wraps around the private pool courtyard.

“Extreme attention to detail can be seen throughout the property,” Reed says. “This home is designed for art and design lovers, Mirador Group created an expansive gallery-like setting to display your favorite pieces while still maintaining the perfect balance of a comfortable home.”

Our only question is, because this residence is so divine, will there be a bidding war?
