Because of its amazing architectural design, this one-of-a-kind Heights home has been recognized in the AIA Houston Architectural Guide and featured in Texas Architect Magazine.
This special "House for Elena" sits on a 7,605 sq. ft. corner lot in the Heights' charming Norhill neighborhood, just across the street from a grassy esplanade.
As explained in its feature in Texas Architect Magazine, the home is “walled off from the surrounding neighborhood, protecting enclosed outdoor spaces to preserve privacy and security.”
While the home’s closed off presentation places a premium on privacy, its prime location allows you to easily interact with the community via the esplanade or nearby staples along both Studewood & White Oak. Antidote, Sonoma, Mastrantos, Good Dog, Maison Pucha & more are all within a few blocks.
The unique design of the home obscures the entrance, but allows the entry to establish a circulation space that acts as a boundary between the living and dining areas.
Designed by Pia Wortham and Joan Callis, this home features amazing architectural elements throughout.
The lovely living room receives an abundance of natural light and showcases some of the home's impressive architectural detail.
The kitchen connects to the dining room via the opening on the left, with a breakfast room situated to the right.

From the AIA Houston Architectural Guide: "Reflecting the influence of their mentor, Enric Miralles, the Houston-born architect Pia Wortham and her husband Joan Callis, who practice in Barcelona, shaped this house and studio as a series of spatial facets. Its interiors open to a walled garden and protected views of the neighborhood.”
A truly sublime (and unique!) outdoor space. Don't forget that, in addition to your own private greenspace, you have a grassy esplanade available for public use just across the street.
Sublime outdoor living on this large corner lot with multiple decks, a pool, covered patio, greenspace, and mature trees for shade.

The home's huge studio is ideal for anyone seeking a light-filled creative space.
There's no reason this huge room has to be limited to a studio though. It really could be used in any number of ways depending on your needs.
This adorable space adjacent to the breakfast room could be the perfect spot to start your day with some coffee or wind down with a glass of wine in the evening.

It also makes for an abundance of serene views of the lush outdoor spaces, which include a variety of decks, a covered patio, greenspace, and a pool. The large studio is climatized and could be utilized in many ways. Simply put, the contemporary design of the home is unique, timeless, and the perfect backdrop for your updates.
