Because Californians do this Italianate/Spanish Colonial kind of thing much better, we tend to dismiss those styles out of hand when we see them in Texas.
This one in Tarrytown, though, seems secure in its style; it doesn't overreach out of fear of not measuring up or ostentatious inclinations. The 2007 build with its 7,178 square feet could seem sprawling or be packed with heavy leather furniture and ironwork. Instead, it speaks to the more monasterial side of the style, demonstrating how simple, eclectic elements can bring a cozy elegance to its six bedrooms, six bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, and five living areas.
The home also includes an exercise room, a game room, and outdoor patio and understated yard by the pool.
