A Sugar Land Contemporary Chateau for $1.5 Million

The symmetry of this home’s front elevation extends right down to the his-and-hers garages off the motor court. It’s a stylized chateau in the Enclave at the Waters of Avalon development. But the interior of the 10-year-old property, newly listed last weekend, is all contemporary:


An etched glass front door opens to the sunken living room. Curling like a wisp of smoke, a sleek spiral staircase rises into a lit dome.  The curvy features also play out in the upstairs balcony, the bays of the dining room and study, the recessed ceilings in many rooms, and the master bath shower stall.

Listed for $1,499,000, the home occupies a third-of-an-acre lot that overlooks a greenbelt underlining part of a Sweetwater Country Club golf course. Two of the 5 bedrooms are downstairs; the 7,485-sq.-ft. house has 5 1/2 bathrooms. Also part of the package: a pool, a putting green, and a “sport court,” with a little yard left over.

A view of the patio and pool from the living room appears through a 14 ft.-wide sheet of glass:

The master bedroom has direct access to the pool.

This black granite tower in the master bathroom is a steam shower:

A cedar-lined closet:

Part of the patio just outside the living room: an outdoor kitchen.

Lighting in the pool changes color.

The neighborhood association has a $1,075 annual maintenance fee.
