A Home For Sale With Segreto Finishes

Mar 15, 2021

Hi Friends! We just completed a high-end spec house in prestigious River Oaks which is a beauty I wanted to share with you. The good news is this home can be yours! So… imagine yourself living inside this stunning property, built by Elron Construction who collaborated with the talented Julie Dodson to select the surfaces! Mike Mahlstedt with Compass holds the listing. So let’s take the tour together!

A Home For Sale With Segreto Finishes- Exterior

Curb appeal is so important and this gem certainly has it. With Old Texas Bricks slurried with Chateau Domingue’s all natural lime base product, a beautiful walkway, that stunning 10 ft. oak and glass door, and weather shield insulated double glazed, wood clad aluminum windows, the house not only exudes charm but is energy efficient.

A Home For Sale With Segreto Finishes- Entry Way

Looking from the inside out, the beautiful 100-year-old reclaimed hand-hewn floors from Custom Floors Unlimited Inc. run throughout the house. We were able to showcase the front doors with a three-coat staining process. The first coat toned the wood taking out any hint of orange, yellow or red while allowing the next layers to add richness and pick up the darkest colorations of the beautiful entry floor pattern.

A Home For Sale With Segreto Finishes- Study

The study, off the entry, features fully paneled white oak which we stained to pull the lightest version of the floors. Cool feature- there is a secret room to tuck away printers and work supplies. Can you guess where it is? Love the light fixture in this room and all throughout the house. They all fit with the homes natural, warm organic feel but give the spaces that contemporary twist!!

A Home For Sale With Segreto Finishes- Butlers Pantry & Bar

Leading from entry back to the kitchen hosts a beautiful butlers pantry/bar. It is all hidden but beneath the beautiful marble counters house a dishwasher and icemaker. The antique glass inset panels with sconces placed on top creates an art-like wall and beautiful focal element. I love the contrast of the darker paint tone coating the cabinets, panels and walls painted in the same tone. This gives any space a dramatic effect and all done with paint!

A Home For Sale With Segreto Finishes- Great Room

Its hard to pick a favorite space in this home but I must say this room would be at the top of my list. With the large open space flanked with a SegretoStone fireplace, and white oak cabinets stained by Segreto, connected by a wall of windows, this would be such a warm place to enjoy and gather.

The kitchen is a chefs dream and for me has ample storage space to house my obsession with dishes!

This kitchen has too many designer finishes to list. The Faber 48″ metal ceiling vent hood accentuates the large window which is flanked by Circa sconces and that custom breakfast table complements the marble shelving wall!

SegretoStone Fireplace

I adore the design of this SegretoStone fireplace. Clean lines, and customized to fit the scale of the room. Rona, with Elron thought of everything, even the sconces flanking the TV or art.

Powder Bathroom

This picturesque powder, with plastered walls and a raised peony plaster design really offsets the floating marble sink and designer sconces.

You can really see the raised part on the left corner. We plaster the walls first, then hand-draw the design, then use a little spatula art tool to create the raised effect! I love the soothing, yet dramatic effect it creates.

The master suite is upstairs- and what a suite it is. With a bedroom, sitting and full coffee bar this gives you a true retreat to rest, relax and unwind. Our part- the finish on wood ceiling and beams.

The master bath is just as spacious, complete with walk-in shower, free standing tub and AMAZING tile designs!!

I love the bench in the walk in shower! And look at all that storage space!

Boutique Style Closet

Every homeowners dream, this boutique style closet, with ample storage and plush rug is just over the top beautiful!

This secondary bath features a beautiful walk in shower enclosed in glass making the bathroom feel light and bright. The tile selection throughout is just fabulous!

This stunning marble in-shower bench floats above the floor doubling as seating and storage. Both beautiful and useful!

Media Room

Who wouldn’t love a movie night in this media room? If in need of more space, this would also be awesome as an office or additional bedroom.

Glamorous Utility Room

Now this makes laundry feel glamorous! The utility room showcases marble countertops, plenty of storage and a pet washing station. Muddy paws won’t make it around this house.

I could move in today! Could you? What an amazing job this team did! Every detail is so well thought out. We have worked with Rona and Julie on a home previously featured in Segreto Impressions also featured here. Dream team! I hope you all are ‘springing forward’ and enjoying the extra hour of daylight in evening. This means spring is right around the corner! Till next week! XO Leslie
