Although being grounded gives us a sense of security, there is nothing quite like a refuge in the skies of one of America's most dynamic cities. Perhaps not everyone knows this, but Houston has one of the most impressive skylines in the nation, and the city is one of the largest by area in the world. The only way to admire Houston's vast beauty and grandeur is from the altitudes. This property is perfect for those who value fantastic architecture, amenities, and beautiful classic decor and are not afraid of an experience in the heights overlooking the city's skyline.
This 12,000+ square foot of European-inspired living is located on the 33rd floor of The Huntingdon, a premier residential building. The property was designed by nationally renowned architect L. Barry Davidson, built out by Tyne Sparks, and gently updated by present owners.
It features utterly custom wood, iron, glass, and stone accents. Italian single-quarry sourced book-matched marble. Faux Venetian plaster, gild work, and trompe l'oeil ceilings and walls by Jay Iarussi and Leslie Segreto.

There are four full bathrooms, four partial bathrooms, and four bedrooms. The residence was built in 1983 and is located in a prime location in the world's energy capital.
