A classic residence designed in 1936 by Birdsall Briscoe for his own family, this classic courtyard home showcases the architect’s gift for proportional design and ornamental detail. At the same time, to provide for today’s modern living, amenities include an updated island kitchen opening into spacious living spaces, a master suite and bath carefully designed for livability, three additional ensuite bedroom/baths, and landscaped patios and gardens. Recent updates include exterior paint (2018), new roof (2018) and McDugald Steele decorative fencing (2011). This home is located on one of River Oaks’ desirable park-like “courtyards” that offer splendid green space and buffer homes from busy streets and through traffic. A note on Birdsall Briscoe: Houston’s earliest residents chose this architect (as well as John Staub) to build their generational homes in River Oaks and elsewhere. He is considered one of the city’s greatest classic architects. All per Seller
