Listed earlier this week, for $3.8 million: This 3-story home, designed in 2008 by Houston architect Allen Bianchi for the president of a stone supply company. That would explain the more than 20,000 sq. ft. of stone surfaces attached to the house, including the limestone cladding outside. The 4-bedroom, 5-1/2-bath block sits on 3 3/4 gated acres on West Rivercrest, just a few mansions south of Briar Forest Dr.
Plenty of imported stone underfoot, too:
Also on the grounds, according to the listing: a clay tennis court, a stable, an orchard, and this 50-ft.-by-25-ft. pool.
