A new listing features a new set of decorative delights gleaned from the interior of a Swamplot-reader Memorial Plaza favorite. Put on sale for a spell in 2011 at $1.5 million (without success), the big-windowed stucco home just outside the Beltway at 12930 Memorial Dr. returned to the market over this past weekend at a more au courant price of $2.25 million, accompanied by a set of what appear to be hastily snapped cameraphone photos — which, for the most part, do little justice to the many splendors of its occasionally indescribable furnishings. To appreciate the interior tableau in all its rococo, you’d likely have to tour this spread yourself. Imagine that all the luscious decor featured in the previous listing is still intact, though, and that this new set of snaps merely adds depth to your sense of discovery — maybe that’ll help you get the full picture?
From the exterior, the shiny, balloon-on-a-string windows glimmer in the daylight:
The house measures 5,865 sq. ft., not including a separate 1,000-sq.-ft. garage apartment in back. The garage has space for 3 cars, but the listing boasts there’s room for a full 16 cars inside the driveway gate, including 9 under a carport.
Do step inside:
Inside, there are 5 bedrooms and 7 baths, 2 of them halfsies.
The famed animal den is still intact:
CityCentre is just a half-block traipse over Beltway 8, so it’ll be easy to add your personal touches to the interior.
