    The asking price is about 3 times what it will sell for. I know we are expected to coment on style, furniture, landscaping etc, but when some bean bag real estate agent lists a house at such a @#$%^ price, I can’t help myself.

      I agree, the asking price is way above what it will actually sell for. There are nicer homes located in upscale neighborhoods in Dallas that are cheaper than this! haha

        And as a Houston suburb it will sell for about 65-70 percent of what a similar Dallas suburb will.

    I don’t mind the exterior. That landscaping is perfectly manicured it almost seems fake. Who decided on that color scheme for the living room? It’s so dour and morbid looking. The rest of the house seems very cramped.

    I can’t help but think of the exterior of the Southfork Ranch when I look at this. The details are completely different, but still it reminds me of that. I exterior of this does not excite me at all. The front grounds do look perfect, but they’re also perfectly boring; large flat lawns (that I doubt ever get used) and some trees off in the distance is not exactly breathtaking.

    The interior has some OK spaces, but stylistically it’s a mess. The pseudo-baronial style combined with other decorative elements just doesn’t work. The living room looks as if it’s supposed to feel like something out of a castle, but then the Polynesian-style fan on the ceiling looks so out of place. The kitchen bar stools are an interesting idea, but the foot rests are ridiculous. They look more like they’re trying to prevent someone from getting near the stools more than anything. The rest of the decor is pretty much just a jumble of dichotomous elements.

    For the Houston area (one of my least favorites), the price is definitely too high.

    This is Richard and Pam Reynolds place. Their son, Shane, is a former pitcher for the Astros (#37) and that is who is in the paintings in the office. Nice place but odd location against a higher density development. Some sales justify the listing, but they aren’t on this street. Further north about a 1/4 mile is the “athlete row” where many of the Rockets and Astros have homes and there have been some mid-teen sales and $5M-$9M is not an unusual sale.

    Except for a few furniture mis-steps, I liked everything about it. Workable spaces, no glaring errors in style, and the idea you could live there comfortably show in the pictures. (From the office picture, the owner isn’t much of a reader.)
    I can’t comment on price, but overall very nice.

    I think the exterior is fantastic, very laid back and self-assured, in contrast to some of the more “look at me” insecure facades we often see. Inside is confused, I’m not a fan of it. Seems expensive.

    Traditional Texas done well. If I owned a ranch, I’d build this on it. I wouldn’t build this in a suburb though. No indeed. River Oaks? Yes.
