Luxury Home in Park-Lke Setting w/Separate Executive Suite of Offices in Upper Kirby


April 16th, 2013


UPDATE- SOLD in 16 DOM - Links to Floor Plans Have Been Disengaged
2801 Colquitt is an elegant brick home, with integrated professional office space,  located in the Upper Kirby District,  near the Galleria and with convenient access to the SW 2801 Colquitt, Houston Texas - Entry FoyerFreeway and  Greenway Plaza.

Built by the architect who both designed it, and maintained professional office space in the residence,* this 4-story brick home has a unique layout that appeals to many buyers. 

It is loaded with architectural features and extra little detail touches that you would expect to find in a home designed for an architect's own use.

The "basics" of large rooms, good flow and an elevator to the top floor head up the list of notable features, but don't overlook  the specialty features like the separate office space with its own glass-door entrance, the 4-car tandem parking garage and the spacious Wine Vault with built-in wrap-around wine storage racks surrounding 11' x 6' of open floor space. 2801 Colquitt, Houston Texas - Wine Vault

In addition to the features designed into this home, particular attention was also placed on the "setting" ... for example,  the Breakfast Room has a curvilinear glass wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that overlooks the oversized rear yard's  park-like setting of mature trees, flowering shrubs, planting beds and a center bubbling fountain.

Lets open up the SMARTePLAN floor plan and take a better look at the overall layout, as well as the wonderful details in each room.

Yes, you have a formal Living Room and formal Dining Room for ease in entertaining, and the adjacent Family Room with fireplace and built-ins is quite large and very nice.  The modern Kitchen with slab granite counters has updated appliances, a center island and abundant storage space.

Click on the Amenities Text and read the very detailed room-by-room description of the features and finishes in this home.  As you can see, premium finishes and thoughtful details are integrated throughout this property  --- feel free to use this text to compare it to other homes in the area.

By far the outstanding unique element of this proper2801 Colquitt, Houston Texas - Office Spacety is the office space that is both spacious and functional consisting of a Reception Area (20' x 17') with built-in coffee/juice bar; the Conference Room (8' x 13') and a large Storage Room (11' x 10") with built-in storage units.   

Despite being on the lower level, this space is filled with abundant natural light from the triple bay window, the glass front door,  and even a large skylight. The office space is distinct and separate from the residence, yet integrated and accessible with skillfully designed  proximity

One of the Seller's favorites* is the oversized underground tandem 4-car garage with a built-in work bench, utility sink, hose bib, and sealed concrete floor with drains.  According to the Seller, the garage with its sturdy and insulated below-ground cinder-block construction (illuminated by glass-block windows) naturally maintains a pleasant 65-85 deg temperature year round*.  The Seller explained the "joy" of always being able to get into a "temperature controlled" car ...never too hot, never too cold... and the distinct pleasure of being able to wash the cars indoors in the winter*.

As you can see this is a unique property that has outstanding features designed into it and premium finishes used to construct it. A desirable blending of a residence and professional office space in a great neighborhood with easy access to Upper Kirby, River Oaks, the Galleria and the SW Freeway.

Thanks for stopping by!

Photography by T-K Images of Houston, Texas

========================

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.]
