Nestled in the heart of Houston’s Memorial Close-In, an exclusive, oasis-styled property is now available on the market.
Inspired by the great luxury retreats across the world, 2 Longbow Lane has recently been listed by Douglas Elliman for $23,500,000. The 16,818-square-foot waterfront property boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and 4-half baths.
Sitting on 4.4 acres, the secluded estate offers a private forest oasis behind its gates accentuated by a lush landscape of mature trees and streams with multiple outdoor patios edging on the Bayou River. From your initial drive up the winding Longbow road, the wooden oasis welcomes your arrival with its mesquite front door and beautifully vast portico. The home’s proximity to downtown Houston whilst perched in a picturesque topography of the wilderness provides the homeowner with the ultimate escape from the big city.
The pristine property’s interiors are intricately designed with dramatic architectural features at every turn. From vaulted ceilings and hand hewed timbers to stone details and two story floor-to-ceiling windows, 2 Longbow Lane has a bespoke mountain retreat feel immediately upon entry. Built on a curve, each room exhibits panoramic views of the romantic rolling hills and winding paths wrapping around the entire property.
At the center of the home, the great room bodes a sublime blend of sophistication and comfort. Inspiring surroundings with exceptional natural light flood the great room’s floor-to-ceiling windows as floating bridges and libraries line the walls on the second floor. Its versatility allows one to cozy up in the nook of the great room with family or host a lavish party with friends in the lodge-style space.
Crafted for large-scale entertaining, 2 Longbow Lane provides multiple flexible spaces perfectly suited for any event in mind. Be it an intimate family gathering or a grandiose celebration, the sprawling home’s environment ensures a relaxing setting for one to one hundred guests.
For those who crave an indoor-outdoor living experience, the primary bedroom features a private patio overlooking the Bayou River waterfalls. Begin your day with a fresh cup of coffee on the patio in the morning or unwind by the stone fireplace before retiring to bed.
“It’s very forward thinking in its design with a feeling of being totally away from civilization”, says agent Mark Menendez. “Perched at the end of a long and private road that is hard to find without intention and all just minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown” establishes 2 Longbow Lane as one of the most coveted properties in Memorial Close-In.
