It’s big, but not the biggest home on its cushy Bay Oaks block. Bigger still are the fairways of adjacent Bay Oaks Country Club, on display behind this fully loaded property that’s located south of Clear Lake Blvd. The updated 1989 contemporary clad with stucco, stone, and tile was listed this week. The asking price of $1.399 million marks a noticeable spike from the $898,000 paid in 2011, when the current owners took hold.
Tightly trimmed landscaping peppers the front lawn (above), located at the top of a T-intersection in the middle of the neighborhood. The leaf placement strategically screens portions of the dining room, otherwise still somewhat visible through a window-clad corner of the checkerboard finish:
More full-height windows rise and multiply across the back of the home. The effect momentarily suggests a reflected living room — but it’s an indoor-outdoor space pairing we’re seeing in the scene below:
The kitchen wing also faces the mega-sized patio (with summer kitchen features) by the pool:
Finishing out one side of the floor plan, there’s an informal dining area between the kitchen and open-ended family room . . .
from which the course is clear:
One of the 3 (0r 4) secondary bedrooms, currently a study, is off the family room:
The master suite is also downstairs, in a private wing with bath . . .
a set of closets . . .
and a home gym. A sliding door leads to the poolscape:
Upstairs, there’s a media room/game room . . .
and more secondary bedrooms. This one, for example, is right off the entertainment zone:
This one connects to a sun deck that provides a quick commute (via spiral staircase) to the poolscape:
Real cars, however, might prefer to park it in the 3-bay “collector’s garage” on the ground level, behind glass panel doors:
The home has 5,136 sq. ft. if you believe the listing or 4,971 sq. ft. if you go strictly by HCAD. Could the difference have something to do with the patio’s overhang flying off the back of the home?
Here’s the terrarium-with-aquarium view of the steel-framed living room available from the back windows:
The golf course’s 6th green lies beyond the third-of-an-acre lot:
