Next Friday we will conclude our six-part series on Patricia Altschul, written by Luzanne Otte. As you know, Patricia has worked with the legendary designer Mario Buatta to design four of her exquisite homes over the last 35 years, including her iconic antebellum Charleston mansion. Today we are heading to my home state of Texas to tour a 1930s Houston home built by the celebrated architect John Staub and decorated by Buatta.
The classic Georgian-style house is located in Houston’s River Oaks neighborhood, and it was featured by Architectural Digest in 2007. In 2012 it was listed for sale, and thanks to Joni Webb’s fabulous blog, Cote de Texas, I recently discovered the real estate listing. I always enjoy comparing magazine images with those on the MLS, and this one is an extra special treat. Architectural Digest photography is by Gordon Beall with captions by Nancy Collins.
Originally built for the Heyer family between 1935 and 1937, this classic John Staub estate represents Staub’s architectural timelessness. It features 8,150 square feet, five bedrooms, and 7.5 bathrooms. The exceptional grounds (1.2 acres) were originally designed by C.C. Fleming, and the pool and entertainment pavilion, fashioned after Claridges, were built in 2007. You can read more via Cote de Texas and Architectural Digest.
