Even before hitting the courtyard pool, an Asian-inspired home in Pearland’s Green Tee Terrace golf community takes a dip with its pagoda-style roof — and hand-dipped gold leaf panels on the living room ceiling (top). Could the distinctive 1982 property be too distinctive for the area? In a series of successive listings, its price has kept dropping. Last week, the stately home popped back up on the market again, this time seeking $699,000. In its initial listing back in 2011, the asking price started at $1.2 million and was whittled back to $895,000 over a 2-year period. A 6-month interim listing in September 2013 found no takers at $800,000 or at the $750,000 reduction in December. Back in 2005, it sold at $614,000, down from a 1999 sale for $649,000.
Attention to detail is one of the property’s hallmarks; so are shoji screens in many of the rooms . . .
A porte-cochère shields and serves the 6,983-sq.-ft. home’s further-recessed front entry:
As in the rock solid foyer, much of the wooden flooring throughout the floor plan features an inlaid pattern:
In the living room, the decorative ceiling is recessed and the floor steps down a level from the surrounding rooms:
Silk tapestry walls lend a subtle counterpoint to the wood trim on the dining room ceiling:
Twin kitchen islands double the work space. One of them fields the veggie sink.
Windows also have blackout panels:
In the master bedroom, the flooring is marble, the shoji screens mother of pearl, and the ceiling mirrored:
Behold the trim package of the spa-scale bathroom
. . . and its tub-top chandelier:
The closet count includes this cedar version:
Laminate flooring shows up in at least one of the secondary bedrooms:
Over in the guest quarters, the game room comes with a kitchenette and a lot of built-in storage:
And there are 2 more bedrooms with bathrooms:
Back in the main home, the media room (above) could be the sixth bedroom; it has its own bathroom, as do all the secondary bedrooms:
The high-drawer-count craft room accommodates a variety of artsy supplies:
A courtyard pool laps up its central location:
There’s also a 2-car garage and a 3-car carport toward the back of the property:
