When an architect is given carte blanche on a home’s design, the result can be spectacular or overwhelming. At 6230 Chevy Chase Drive, the results are stunning. The current owners spared no expense when they commissioned the home to be built in 2009 by Mark Atkins of MASA Studio Architects.
The Praire-style home in Houston’s Briargrove neighborhood has four bedrooms and four-and-one-half bathrooms within 4,228 square feet. Listed by Jamie Barrere of Douglas Elliman Real Estate for $1,785,000, the house is a showstopper with its shallow hipped roof, arch entrance and clean lines. The architectural details are evident before opening the door. A large picture window, a commissioned art piece, sets the tone for the home with its etchings and circles.
