This large 2-story home in West University is one you want to add to your list to see. It has 4 (or 5) bedrooms, vaulted and coffered ceilings, inlaid travertine floors and premium finishes.
Tall windows (over 5+') with plantation shutters are throughout, most with upper level glass transoms that illuminate this open floor plan, making it light and bright from every angle.
Let's go over and look at the floor plan to give us an overview. Open up the SMARTePLAN with its embedded photos, and look at some specifics of interest... c'mon let's peek inside.
This house is clearly designed for entertaining. The entry foyer and reception hall is quite large and easily accommodates the arrival of multiple guests.
The foyer, with its tall ceilings and inlaid travertine tile floor, opens to the handsome block-paneled study/library and formal living room ... and then also leads to the dining room, past the grand stair hall.
We call it the grand stair hall because of the wide hardwood staircase with dual scrolled ironwork banisters ascending to the second level. Three tall arched and leaded stained glass windows illuminate the stairway and are one of those "extra" features you just don't find in homes nowadays.
Tall ceilings, inlaid travertine floors, arched and cased openings to each room are all lovely detail touches that make this property's craftmanship stand out.
But if we're going to call this home one designed for entertaining there are certain elements that must be present --- good flow and an exceptional dining room --- and this property does not disappoint. The Dining Room (18' x 12' 5") is quite large and the arched opening to the Butler's Pantry is a wonderful surprise.
This Butler's Pantry is not some dark closet; it runs the whole (18') length of the dining room, with beautiful built-ins of glass-faced cabinets, above a granite counter with still more beautifully crafted drawer and cabinet storage below. What a stunner!
Of course you have a granite kitchen with updated and stainless appliances, you expect that level of detail in this home; but the wrap-around granite breakfast bar open to the Family Room is a nice surprise.
You don't have to "get by" with the granite breakfast bar because this home also has a spacious 13' x 14' Breakfast Room with tall windows on three sides! Verrry nice!
The Family Room with fireplace has a wall of glass doors that open to the rear covered porch with summer kitchen. The fenced rear yard has plenty of play room and a large grassy lawn, providing a soft landing for even the most rambunctious playmates.
Bedrooms are all upstairs and the SMARTePLAN shows you the configuration. The very private Master Suite is quite large, with a unique paneled and barrel-vaulted ceiling, marble master bath and coffee/juice bar.
I see a lot of houses and honestly, this one just has more "extra stuff" in it. If you review the floor plan and photos you will see premium finishes and thoughtful details are integrated throughout this property --- this will be the house you compare to all the others you see.
The SMARTePLAN has 14 photos embedded inside it, so your online tour will be quite detailed, informative and EASY! Take the time to see everything this home has to offer.
This is a unique property with outstanding features designed into it and premium finishes used to construct it.
3306 Amherst in West University is a must-see 4-5 bedroom home close to the Galleria, close to the Medical Center and close to Houston's Museums. Come see it.
Thanks for stopping by!

SMARTePLANS have photos embedded inside the floor plan that launch with a mouse click .... each photo arrow is positioned in the plan where the photographer was standing --- so you can see where he was and what he was aiming at when he took the shot ... in relationship to the drawing. Beneath the photo is a description of that room. Once the photo launches you have a choice to link back to the floor plan and choose another photo, or read the amenities text for the WHOLE property (not just that particular room). All the files are inter-linked so you can seamlessly click around this property, viewing the photos and reading the descriptions. This is not a video ... you choose what you want to view ... or not.
[NOTE: SMARTePLANS are PDF files so they magnify to over 100%. When the file launches, click "View" on the top toolbar and make sure there is a checkmark next to the toolbar named "Select and Zoom". Every time you tap the plus key inside the circle the view screen enlarges (the minus key shrinks the magnification); and the magnifying glass with the plus sign in it marquee selects a specfic area of the drawings to be enlarged. Using the hand key and the scroll bars, its easy to move around inside the file, and then magnifying the features you want to see.]
