This newly constructed mansion is located in the guard gated community of Farnham Park. It’s address is 24 Farnham Park, Piney Point Village, TX. The home, which was designed by renowned architect Robert Dame, is on the market for $6,999,000. The home encompasses over 15,000 square feet of living space and boasts 5 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.


The home’s wings enclose an expansive central courtyard with tiered, brick-edged flagstone terraces, parterre gardens, pool, koi pond, fountain and loggia, all visible from ground-floor rooms through surrounding Palladian-style mahogany French doors. The stunning interiors were created by Sarah Eilers, ASID.

The massive central hall, floored with variegated-width hickory wood planks laid in a herringbone pattern, stretches from the entrance past the open formal rooms and the double volute staircase into the rear cross hall and light-filled solarium. Quality craftsmanship is evident throughout: egg-and-dart deeply stacked moldings; wide, paneled cased openings with recessed display niches; and a delicately carved cast-stone fireplace mantel in the living room.

An area most suggestive of Old World character is the imposing, double-height rotunda library. Upper galleries lined with bookshelves and cozy reading alcoves accessed by a hidden staircase are among the many highlights in this impressive room that also features glazed cypress paneled walls and cabinets; a raised masonry fireplace with rich marble surround; a built-in saltwater aquarium; and a large, flat-screen television wall recess.

Elegance also abounds in the home’s informal areas. An extended, groin-vaulted gallery, sided with French doors and courtyard vistas, leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, family room, game room and service areas. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a towering, elaborately trussed cathedral ceiling; recessed clerestory windows; exposed cedar bayou brick walls; a double masonry fireplace, which also serves the adjoining family room; butternut cabinets; and beveled Ayers Green granite countertops. Appliances include a Wolf gas range with custom-designed hood; double farm sink; pair of SubZero refrigerators with freezer drawers; pair of Asko dishwashers; appliance garage; and GE Monogram refrigerator drawers.

The family room joins the kitchen through a pair of arches and has access to the loggia and terraces. A furniture-quality entertainment cabinet fills an entire wall and features a large-screen television recess with doors. Another pair of arches opens into the adjoining game room, with plenty of room for a full-sized pool table. Amenities include built-in glass-display cases and sets of French doors accessing the back yard.

On the second floor, the master suite occupies its own wing and includes access to the upper galleries of the library through a charming morning room. The light-filled master bedroom has a radius ceiling with cove lighting; deeply stacked molding; an antique French walnut fireplace mantel with marble surround; and built-in bookshelves and cabinets.
