If you missed out last time around, the 2-story, ambiguous-dozens-bedroom building at 2354 County Rd. 59 is back on the market as of this weekend after spending the winter in hibernation under contract. The property, tucked just 1 mile west of 288 at the edge of Pearland, made the rounds late last April for its current asking price of $3.5 million before an October relisting and a quick switchover to the “sale pending” category.
The newest listing calls the house 46-bedroom, but also holds the buyer responsible for counting. Mona Miller of RE/MAX told the Chronicle back in May that the structure has “probably more like 70″ bedrooms — because interior construction is incomplete, it’s hard to tell. The unfinished structure started going up in the early 2000’s, possibly intended for use as a medical rehab institution by its doctor owner, who instead built a slightly-smaller similarly-styled facility on the lot next door in 2003 (on the right, in the aerial photo below)
Thanks to a lack of zoning laws in the area, however, the house can now become pretty much anything an imaginative buyer can dream up. Hotel? Office space? New cult headquarters? Go ahead and dream big: Miller also told the Chronicle that the property would probably have to be cleaned out down to shell and studs, anyway.
At present, the structure boasts 9 garages:
Plus a loading area:
A reception space (merely a suggestion) is partially finished:
Other areas are less polished:
The building also includes a large swimming pool (also just a suggestion):
There’s also an elevator, or the makings of one:
