Longtime Swamplot readers may remember Richard Maier as the listing agent who advertised his own Talbott Wilson modern as a freebie that just happened to come with the 1.35-acre lot on Glencove St. he was selling. (The pitch was successful, luring buyer David Mincberg and later, a demolition crew.) Michael X. Flynn was the designer and contractor responsible for transforming a small Upper Kirby office building into this little villa of vaguely Corbusian pleasures. (That one’s still on the market.) Now they’ve put their own little uh, white house on the market. The pair moved into 26 Crestwood Dr. a few years ago, though they previously owned the 2 properties that flank it. All 3 mansions share a gated driveway that faces directly into the southern reaches of Memorial Park.
Now’s your chance to peek around what they’re leaving — the scene of that Annise Parker fundraiser you missed:
The property measures just under an acre, and comes with this little 9,000-sq.-ft. playhouse:
Hidden in the library pictured above: A “secret door” that leads to an underground “game” room. Which bookcase could it be? Also lurking down there: wine storage, a media center, and a 4-car garage.
In all: 4 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Asking price: $7 million.
