From the street, the bits of the facade of this 1970 home in Piney Point visible through the swath of greenery are mostly covered over in stone — but the sides and remainder of the house features numerous floor-to-ceiling windows and glass walls (not only separating the mirrored bath chamber above from the master suite, but separating a fully indoor pool from the dining room and living room areas). The 3-bedroom home went on the market originally for around $2.4 million, but the asking price dropped to $1,995,000 late last fall. Other conspicuous features include what the home’s listing describes as 20-pound sheets of copper wallpaper employed in the master bedroom, extensive mirroring around the house, and the dense swirl of fantastical beasts wallpapered onto the kitchen ceiling:
The master bedroom is windowed on 2 sides, and contains a fireplace:
The master bath provides options both for those who wish to bathe in relative visual obscurity and for those seeking the opposite experience:
The master suite has 2 closets . . .
. . . the second of which comes with a salon chair and sink:
The listing claims the movie theater is furnished with refurbished seats from Radio City Music Hall:
The hallway-length wine stable includes a dining nook:
The remaining 2 bedrooms share an elephant- and camel-filled full bathroom, and also have access to that mid-house pool:
A landscaped pond feature with a self-contained creek are visible from the house in the back yard:

Wow. Private blackjack dealer always on call?
That is absolutely TERRIBLE!!! Ethnic designs at their worst.
actually there are no windows in the back of the home… all of the windows are up front.
Thanks, Shane — we’ve updated the first paragraph to clarify!
So this is now the 0.1% live ….
First of all, yuck. This house cannot be called a “mod”. More like, ostentatious contemporary.
Second of all, I miss these features, and I hope Swamplot starts trolling HAR more often :-)
The kitchen ceiling has a rug on it.
As I scrolled through these, ABBA songs started playing in my head. Make it stop!!!
This whole house screams: “More money than taste.”
I’d like to pass on this showcase and see what’s behind Door #2.
Further proof that money can’t buy taste.
Is this Tony Montana’s Houston estate? The only thing missing is “The World is Yours” statue.
Throw some more gold accents around and you’d have a perfect Houston home for DJT.
Why is the stove top on?
Oh, I give this one a few points for some Auntie Mame audacity.
