Luxury Homes: Since everything is big in Texas, it is not too much of a stretch to assume that a luxury estate might be on the beefy side too. Well, there is no letdown relying on such a corollary from this prime River Oaks residence that overlooks the Buffalo Bayou. The noble mansion, which was originally built for royalty, sets regally on three-plus acres in a wooded area of the acclaimed subdivision. River Oaks is one of Houston's most coveted residential areas. It has the spurs on my boots spinning wildly!

Private balconies are ideally situated throughout the house offering a place to relax and take in the view of the greenery and the spectacular view of the river. Double bronze doors open to a lavish three-story reception hall that features marble floors, high ceilings and two elevators. There are two staircases, 11 full baths and nine plus bedrooms in this roomy estate that has over 24 rooms, including servants' quarters. The area around the outdoor swimming pool offers a cabana, dressing rooms and kitchen. Additionally, there is a cellar and a four-car detached garage. A separate building for office quarters also is on the property.

The prestigious River Oaks Country Club, whose golf course was previously ranked by Golf Digest, is less than a mile away. This is one of the most exclusive country clubs in the nation.

More information regarding this modern-era castle, which was built in 1986, is easily obtainable from MK Luxury Homes & Condominiums. Ms. Margie Kaplan is the founder of the company. The firm specializes in locating premier luxury properties in the Houston area.
