    Is this on top of a hotel, because that is the only way that I would see it as a penthouse

    Whatever it’s on top of, it is beautiful, BUUUUUUUUUT………..it’s in TEXAS! Totally ruins it for me. I’d live in THREE MILE ISLAND New York first.

    Not bad at all, especially being 30 years old (obviously remodeled). However, it looks like it would be dark during the daytime, almost as-if you would need to turn on lights. Price seems fair, though I’m going to assume people don’t want a condo in Texas as much as they would in Florida or California.

    It’s definitely nice, but the interior looks somewhat dated to me. I do like the outdoor spaces. But, it’s in Houston! That has to be one of my least favorite cities in all the world.

    I’ve seen better interiors, but the basic part of the place is ok. With furniture I like this would fine. I like the exterior more, it’s basically a block of concrete but somehow I still like it. The terrace looks great, nice pool and view; great place for a party.

    But I agree with others, it’s Houston. Not a place in the US-of-A I would move to. In my eyes, Houston is only good for one thing/sentence, and you know which one…

      And what is that Iemand? As a Houstonian, I can’t wait to hear this.

      Remember that next time you become violently ill, and require worlds class medical care. Houston has the best medical facilities on the planet!

        That’s a nice sentiment, and completely true, but has NOTHING to do with real estate. And considering Iemand lives in Europe (correct?) he probably would have no use for Houston’s medical facilities.

          Yes, I do live in Europe (The Netherlands to be precise).
          I guess Houston will be a fine place to live, but to me it’s just not the place I would move to if I would decide to live in the United States.

          That comment of mine was just a joke, don’t take me seriously all the time 😉

          My apologies, not trying to divert from the topic at hand, just felt the need to point out that Houston is more than, just space / science.

            Being a Houston, I do agree that Houston is indeed more than just space/science. Despite the fact that it isn’t a suburban mansion that one would expect to find in Houston, its still very nice. Its obviously intended for the person that wants the River Oaks prestige without the lawn care that comes with a mansion. I personally love it, but I would go with a mansion in the neighborhood, not a condo. But sill, its very very nice and a truly special residence.

        Hmm, Mayo Clinic is in Minnesota, Johns Hopkins is in Maryland, Cleveland Clinic is in Ohio and the University of Michigan in of course Michigan are some of the best medical facilities on the planet so Houston can shove it.
        Not to mention there are fabulous facilities in NY and Boston.
        Typical Texas attitude.

          You know what all those things have in common? They’re all in different states. The Texas Medical Center (largest in the world) is right here in one location, albeit it does cover over a thousand acres. However, as others have pointed out, this has nothing to do with this penthouse or real estate in general.

    Not too shabby… for a condo. It’s just in the wrong city 😉

    Houston is one of the strongest cities economically in the country. Not sure what all of the fuss is about.

    Well I agree with the general consensus that this is the wrong location, but otherwise this place just leaves me feeling cold. There’s not much inviting about it, and I agree with Grrrowler that it does feel dated, even though I’m sure it’s been updated one or two times. I really don’t like the wall treatment in that two-story living room…perhaps it’d feel different in person, but at first glance it looks too much like that industrial painted cinder-block construction you see in schools and other public buildings.

    All that being said, however, the terraces look like fabulous places to do some serious entertaining, and the views are killer. Agreed that the price sounds low.

    I think it is pretty cool and definitely unexpected for Houston. Atlanta, LA, or Miami maybe. It might be nice for some oil man who comes into town for business and is looking for something low maintenance. Overall I find it very interesting.

    Houston is improving itself gradually, and as pointed out by Chris Williams, is one of the strongest cities economically in the country right now. It hasn’t been known for being a first-class city regarding things like entertainment, shopping, restaurants, etc…but it’s getting up there.

      A number of my friends in the Midwest have moved to Houston in recent years. The city has changed quite a bit over the past 8 or 9 years that I have been visiting there. As you rightly point out, it is not as sophisticated about entertainment etc as Austin, for example, but it is fast getting there. There’s no question about the superb medical facilities – one of only two proton therapy centers in the country are in the city. Also, NASA develops a lot of highly advanced stuff in nearby Friendswood and this filters in to the various industries. There’s excellent universities there and good private schools for children though the public school system is bad. If you’re in the healthcare, aerospace or oil industries, it is a major center to consider. And its not a bad place at that, though the smaller adjoining cities in the Greater Houston area like Friendswood, Pearland etc are better than even wealthy enclaves like River Oaks IMO. They’re a lot cheaper too. And, don’t forget The Woodlands either – an excellent planned community now growing into a city.

    Stunning Penthouse. Looks a bit old though. It could use some remodeling. Actually, Texas is absolutely beautiful. The people are nice and it’s way better than Florida and California. They have one of the largest malls in the nation in Houston. The people in Texas dress the part, too. Also, you get more for your money in Texas.
