  • The passage way to the wine tasting room and wine cellar shows a boiserie above the opening to the wet bar, custom antique cabinetry, granite counters and drawered storage space.
  • The wine tasting room is a tucked away gem, hidden by a pocket door. The walls are antique 18th century French panels with concealed access to the wine cellar. Northern exposed French doors permit for a soft glow of natural light.
  • Another hidden treasure, accessed by a panel in the wine tasting room, the wine cellar is climate controlled with brick floors and custom wood storage for an old world atmosphere.

  • This pathway surrounded by gardens and bayou views walks you past the bowed glazed wall in the sitting room and into the covered loggia area to more stunning views of the grounds and the dazzling blue pool.
  • The view down to the water and rolling landscapes command attention in this part of the loggia area just east of the morning room. Ceiling fans throughout the veranda provide a cool respite from the hot Houston summer.
  • Another respite from the hot Houston summer is the cool sparkling pool surrounded by pavers on the south side of the property. Views to the veranda and walls of green can be enjoyed while swimming or leisurely floating.
  • Back view of the property taken at a southeastern angle shows more of the attention to detail in the windows, arches, columns, Italian tile roof and fountain.
  • Back view of the property taken from a northeastern angle showing the curved window in the master suite, the floor to ceiling French doors along the width of the formal entertaining areas and the back lawn.
  • The summer kitchen off the covered loggia has a pull down door to protect it from the elements and features a gas grill, sink and full sized refrigerator. Iconic columns, archways, brick patio flooring and large ceiling fans form the covered loggia.
  • View looking from just outside the sitting room down to the bayou and across the back lawn. Flourishing foliage from mature trees and well-manicured lawn is reminiscent of the verdant French countryside.
  • Rolling landscape view down to the tree-laden bayou that feeds to Lake Carter in Memorial. The privacy of this property is exceptional with its close-in Memorial location. 835 Little John is a phenomenal opportunity for the right buyer.
