This was not your ordinary realtor’s open house for oh so many reasons. Let’s start with the bottomless Veuve Clicquot pours and then move on to the caviar and smoked salmon servings. With such, the stage was set for a party that moved through Strasser Design’s stunning contemporary dwelling at 2169 University Blvd.

The party atmosphere was well orchestrated for this 5,280 square foot home was built for a very social lifestyle. Spaces flow indoors and out and the open floor plan speaks to a modern conviviality. Designed and built by architectural designer Scott Strasser, the two-story home (which did not flood) is a dream of clean lines and minimalist sentiments but with a warmth provided by abundant over-sized windows.

Guaranteeing that this look-see evening would be appropriately elevated, host John Daugherty, Realtors tapped Diane Roederer‘s DR Delicacy to provide the caviar while Veuve Clicquot filled the many flutes in Veuve’s signature orange. John Daugherty president and COO Cheri Fama and listing agents Kathy Dreyfus and Laurie Maloney provided a friendly welcome to the invitation-only guests who perused the house inside out.

What they discovered was a stunning four-bedroom contemporary with guest house, multiple garages, and infinity swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen and living area with fire pit, and a rooftop deck with views of the Rice University football stadium and the downtown skyline. The second floor master suite opens via a Nana Wall to a glassed-in terrace that not only has the views but also overlooks the swimming pool.

For dedicated home chefs or your favorite caterer, the kitchen is a modern masterpiece in its own right with all Gaggenau appliances, lacquered cabinets, white glass cabinet fronts and Corian countertop and sink. Not into cooking? The kitchen is designed so that it is easily concealed, despite the open floor plan, when not in use.

The house is listed with John Daugherty, Realtors for $3,950,000.
