Regal River Oaks Mansion Hits the Market With a $17.5 Million Asking Price — a Traditionalist’s Dream

For the traditionalists among us, there could not be a more appealing dwelling than the regal Robert Dame-designed home at 2109 River Oaks Boulevard. On the market for only a few days, it is already gaining interest not only for the grand design but also for the rare corner lot that measures almost an acre.

Compass’ Laura Sweeney has listed the 12,900 square foot Houston home for $17.5 million, a handsome price that includes all of the lavish amenities one would expect in a dwelling of this quality including a remarkable guest cottage.

The so-called “cottage” adds 1,900 square feet of living/entertaining space to the property and features a great room, wet bar, wine grotto and upper-level guest suite.

In fact, all aspects of the dramatic dwelling are somewhat remarkable. The primary bedroom for example is a palatial sanctuary that includes not only the requisite separate bespoke baths, each with dressing rooms, but also a light-filled private parlor, home office and morning bar. Two stairways and an elevator lead to the second floor where all six bedrooms, including the primary one, are located. Seven full baths and two half baths guarantee a very clean household.

As one might expect in an English-themed design, the three-story house boasts seven wood-burning fireplaces with gas connections. An abundance of Ionic columns and rich crown moldings (Corinthian columns in the study) contribute to the Old World ambience. And as one might demand of a baronial Texas estate the package includes a pool, summer kitchen with fireplace and the all-important home generator.

Adding to the allure of designer Robert Dame ‘s creation is the interior decor with furnishings and appointments so rich that one might be tempted to purchase this beauty lock, stock and barrel.

We might guess that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle , aka the Duchess of Sussex, would feel quite at home here, except perhaps for the Bayou City’s subtropical climate.
