A remarkable Georgian-style residence originally designed by architect Lucian Hood and built in 1980 has sold after listing September for $4.65 million. The final sales price is unknown. One of River Oak’s most unique homes, this showplace features exceptional modern interior, glorious outdoor space and a superb park-facing location. The remarkable Georgian residence has been artfully reimagined by its interior designer owner to embrace a minimalist aesthetic that complements the home’s exceptional pedigree. Ebony stained floors dramatize the all-white walls and millwork in the formal living and dining rooms while black lacquer paint gleams in the stately library. The state-of-the-art Poggenpohl marble kitchen offers Miele appliances, a breakfast room, butler’s pantry and wine room. The adjoining family room opens to a chic rear yard with a new pool, covered patio and privacy fencing. In the lavish owner’s suite, enjoy a sitting room, walk-in closet and spa bath. Upscale secondary suites join an upstairs balcony, media room, gym, utility/mudroom and powder rooms. Extensive upgraded systems, smart home features, plus a three-car garage and gated entry. The property had been on the market for $4.65 million with Dolores Guggenheim of Compass.
