The Beinhorn

Meticulously designed and constructed, this six-bedroom, 17,369-square-foot manor 10 miles from Houston is a bastion of timeless aesthetics: a Mansard roof, shuttered dormer windows, and a refined façade of stucco and brick. Throughout the interiors, ceilings with thoughtfully positioned lighting soar above rich hardwood floors, exceptional millwork, and walls in a soothing neutral palette. Highlights include formal living and entertaining spaces, main and catering kitchens, a wet bar and wine room, a summer kitchen, covered patios with fireplaces, and a pool and spa.
