Strung Between the Towers of a Museum District Condo Building


Warwick Towers, 1111 Hermann Dr., HoustonAptly named a “bridge unit,”  this eighth-floor space spans between the 30-story Warwick Towers just north of Hermann Park in the Museum District. The 3,385-sq.-ft. condo it’s part of had $5oK knocked off its initial asking price earlier this week in its relisting by the same agent after a 6-month previous listing expired. The million-dollar view (which curiously is not pictured in the listing) is now priced at $1.15 million — plus a not-insignificant monthly maintenance fee of $2,694.



Semi-separate, the living and dining rooms share their views through windows on both the north and south sides of the unit.


Room-darkening shades and a retractable screen convert this built-in storage area by the baby grand (above) into the focal point of a media room:


Does the cactus sculpture on the balcony indicate the unit’s south side?




The off-kitchen breakfast area has built-in seating just off the bi-level countertop.


The kitchen appears to have been updated at some point:




The building was built in 1983. This condo has 2 or 3 bedrooms.


In the master suite, there’s a mock fireplace built into the corner’s shelving and storage:



In case of bathrobe emergency, break glass:



A little room used as a study is off the master suite as well:



The secondary bedroom stows a Murphy bed amid the built-ins. Windows face west, where several Rice University-area neighborhoods huddle beneath the tree canopy:


The unit’s other bathroom has doors to the guest bedroom and to the hallway:


Far below in the garage, 2 parking spaces are designated for this unit. The property’s other shared amenities include a pool, terrace, dry sauna, exercise room, party room, spa, service elevator, storage, and tennis court. (Up on the 28th floor, Unit 28B is significantly smaller, has no bridge cachet, and costs a good chunk less: $650,000.)

  • So is that building FILLED with people paying $ 1 mil? I’m impressed.

  • That is one robust maintenance fee. You could pay down the mortgage and taxes on a $400,000 house for that.

    Also, dat bathroom. (shudders)

  • Semper Fudge: You aren’t lying about that master bath. That is some pretty damn fugly countertop and tile. And a Murphy Bed in a 1 million + dollar condo? Interesting idea. I suppose the view is pretty good and I do like some of the interior.

  • I used to visit the Warwick Towers. The views ARE quite nice. The HOA fees are a tad high. But it’s all relative …

  • Ugh, I might want to visit once or twice but I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live there.

    I’m thinking the novelty would wear off quickly. Someone out there will love it and good for them!!

  • I like the table lamp echoing the fake saguaro on the terrace. But I’m easily amused.
