A swanky new mansion has hit the market in Friendswood. Tucked away in a secluded 10 acres, there’s plenty to praise — one of the largest residential pools in the entire state, a 24-seat hot tub, three separate garages, personal sauna and more — but the most appealing aspect might just be its former owner.
If it’s good enough for Tony Buzbee, Houston attorney and mayoral candidate, it may be good enough for many. The renowned lawyer, famed for winning millions upon millions in high-profile cases, designed this mansion himself.
Buzbee’s lavish former home at 405 West Spreading Oaks Avenue sprawls over an impressive 12,954 feet, boasting seven grandiose bedrooms featuring high vaulted ceilings, and five full Hollywood-style baths and two half baths. The master suite features a massive walk-in closet and a bulletproof door.
You can live in the lap of luxury at this one-of-a-kind estate for just $6.89 million — or a little more, if you’d consider buying the gleaming Aston Martin parked in the showcase garage, near the six-car climate-controlled garage and eight-car additional garage.
The classic but forward-thinking contemporary manse features an upgraded interior, from shining hardwood floors to soaring ceilings with exposed beams.
The home has it all and then some, whether you can’t live without a state-of-the-art kitchen or you’re lusting after a wine cellar, cigar room, poker bar, mirrored fitness room and full tennis court.
But it’s not all about the amenities. The home’s interior brings spacious, airy rooms, custom rich wood, stone accents and floor-to-ceiling windows.
“My favorite parts of the home are the actual layers and the flow. It truly creates a zen with all of the natural lighting and large windows,” realtor Veronica Weir of The Weir Team at RE/MAX 1st Class tells PaperCity.
“With a 360-degree view, you are sure to have a beautiful view, whether it’s looking over at the pool or the trees backing the creek.”
The mansion is encircled by acre upon acre of lush, towering trees and abundant flora. It’s all part of a breathtaking backyard oasis, with the pristine resort-style pool and hot tub fit for a party, expansive patio and built-in grill. Call it entertainment central.
Not to mention convenient, with plenty of room for your helipad in this non-air restricted flight area.
With all of these features, the residence’s crown jewel is that it’s something of a hidden gem, settled in the very heart of Friendswood behind a private gated entry.
“Driving down Spreading Oaks of the Liberty Tree Estates neighborhood, you simply cannot see the full masterpiece until you are inside of the entry gate. And even when you step inside, you never run out of space,” Weir notes.
This residence offers easy access to George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Hobby Airport (for times when you’re going too far to take your helicopter) and was high and dry during Hurricane Harvey.
You could say Buzbee’s former playground is creating a lot of buzz.
