Share News:

It’s hot in Houston and we’re not just talking temps. This week’s Splurge vs. Steal is a fiery competition between two fantastic offerings in Houston’s tony River Oaks neighborhood.

Which would you choose? 

Splurge: Houston Chateau Stunner With High-End Designer Upgrades For $1.299M

First, we kick off our Splurge vs. Steal with a rare offering in prime river oaks. Condo living never looked so good! Am I right? Ideally situated in Chateau 10, a six-story mid-rise with only ten residences, rests our 2,834-square-foot splurge. 

The three-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bathroom home affords a semi-private elevator, designer wallcoverings, and luxury finishes throughout. This includes marble bathrooms, a fully-equipped chef’s kitchen with Eggersmann cabinetry, and a gracious wine room with storage. 

In the master, an oversized bedroom with marble-clad bath steals the show. It comes complete with a Victoria + Albert soaking tub and frameless glass rain shower. Other highlights include hardwood floors, soaring 10-foot ceilings, plus a fabulous balcony with built-in grill. The only thing it needs is you!

Martha A. Adger with Sotheby’s International Realty Central Houston Brokerage has listed 2221 Welch Street #301, Houston, Texas for $1.299 million.

Steal: Briar Hollow Beauty That Lives Like A Luxe Treehouse For $650K

For over half-a-million less, you could find yourself living in this fantastic River Oaks condo in the heart of Houston. It’s gated, it’s private, and it offers a sparkling pool surrounded by a canopy of mature trees. 

Inside the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home you’ll find a gorgeous 3,948 square feet. There are herringbone wood floors, a Viking chef’s kitchen with warming shelf and drawer, plus a fantastic master suite. 

Every corner of the home is light and bright for a tranquil feel that brings the outdoors in. That is except in the warm and inviting study with wall-to-wall woodwork.

Even better, the unit is wired for surround sound indoors and out. And when you want to connect with nature, you have two-acres of wooded trails to enjoy. So much luxury for the price!

Linda Ricca with Compass has listed 45 Briar Hollow Lane Apt 11, Houston, for $650,000.
