This stunning Mediterranean style mansion is located in Houston, TX. It’s not for sale, however I still wanted to share this beauty with all of you. It was designed by Patrick Berrios Designs and built by Melrose Custom Homes. It features a grand 2-story foyer with curved staircase and domed ceiling, a 2-story great room/dining room with fireplace, butler’s pantry gourmet kitchen, double height breakfast room, paneled home office with fireplace and coffered ceiling, family room with fireplace and custom built-ins, game room with wet bar, lavish master suite with white marble bathroom and 2-story closet, home theater, porte-cochere with 4+ car garage, covered patio with fireplace, outdoor BBQ area, resort style swimming pool with rock waterfall and spa, pergola with fireplace and more.

    I know I saw that dressing room on Houzz.com, but the rest of the house looks familiar as well. Did you feature this before, Kenny?

    I love an open floorplan but sometimes I think it can be too open. I expected the beige on beige interior so that didn’t bother me. I think the beautiful dome ceiling and chandelier are wasted by being stuck in the corner and not liking the placement of that sitting room. When the floors are tiled and the rooms that open, noise is going to be an issue.

    But enough of that. I will love any house that understands what a butler’s pantry is supposed to be. I’m tired of mansions sticking a tiny cabinet somewhere and calling it a butler’s pantry. Pet peeve of mine. And hats off to anyone who can make avocado green cabinetry work and not come off as 70’s hideous fad reincarnated. I personally would NEVER have ever considered green so kudos to them for thinking outside the box.

    I will also love any home that would give the queen of the castle a closet so large it has to be two stories. Someone was using their little gray cells. The largest closet I’ve ever had was a 13′ x 6′ and I managed to fill that up no problem. I’d probably sell my first born for a closet like Mariah’s or Kimmora’s. Though I think it was an error to use a winding staircase there. If you’ve ever been running late for a formal event, you’d know the last thing you would want to do is to be navigating narrow winding stairs in a gown or heels or just carrying armfuls of possibilities. Forget gown. Any scenario that involves rushing to get ready and those stairs will be an issue. No issue with having stairs in the dressing room, just not this particular style of one. It’s asking for trouble.

    Oops, my bad. Ignore the earlier question, Kenny. I clicked on the link. I knew it looked familiar. I’d scoped it out on Houzz.com some time ago.

    Generally speaking, I like it. There are some quirks that I would change though. The two trees and double path blocking the entrance would go; I’d put a fountain in instead. I would spruce up the groin fault ceilings with some minimal faux finishing. The butler’s pantry and breakfast area would need to be repainted/re-tailored. Everything else ain’t bad at all.

    LOL To each his own. One set of cabinets I can deal with. An entire kitchen in green, no matter how well done. I don’t think I could handle it. Though I do love the detailing

    Not a bad house. The stone mason needs to come back in and finish the job in pic #9.
