Located conveniently close to the Galleria, Highland Village and the areas around Afton Oaks --- 9A Lana Lane -----is a sweet find. This traditional brick home is wonderfully appointed with premium finishes and many desirable features.
So, it is located in a very desirable close-to-the-Galleria location, in a neighborhood with abundant mature oaks and green space -- and you can tour it online right here! Let’s open up the SMARTePLAN and get ready to “OOOO” and “AAHHHH” as we launch the photos and take a closer look.
Clicking Photo # 1 launches the curbside view and reveals sculpted shrubbery, a thick expanse of grassy lawn and landscaped planting beds enclosed with custom wrought iron fencing with two (lockable) pedestrian gates. All the walkways and also the driveway are edged with contrasting paver-stones, including the front open air terrace. (Photo # 2)
The front door is stunning! This gracious entryway features a one-of-a-kind entry door with beveled and leaded etched glass panels, twin beveled and leaded etched glass sidelights and a matching arched glass transom overhead.
As you enter the home, the hardwood floors immediately catch your eye. Gleaming hardwood floors are throughout the downstairs with extended height carved baseboards and double waterfall edges. The Living Room features a gas log fireplace with built-ins on either side that also feature accent windows, that keep the room light and bright.
Twin cased, block-paneled archways lead from the Living Room to the Kitchen and Formal Dining Room, with its wallpaper over chair rail, multi-tiered glass chandelier and recessed display case with adjustable glass shelves.
The Granite Kitchen is the star – no question. Slab granite counters, tumbled-stone backsplash and custom cabinetry with some glass-faced cabinets and top-of-cabinet display space are just a few of the features you’ll note with pleasure. And who cannot be pleased with the 10’ x 4’ granite-topped island, with an under-counter microwave, built-in wine storage rack, bookshelf and breakfast bar seating on 3 sides?!
I love, love, love the size of this island .. such a wonderful uninterrupted expanse of workspace ---- usually a cooktop unit eats up space on the island, but not here. No worries about not having a cooktop on the island; your stainless steel professional grade Wolf® 6-burner gas range with self-cleaning glass-faced oven will have you cooking up a storm.
Use the Amenities Text with its detailed room-by-room description of features and finishes as a guidebook to tour this kitchen --- and the whole property – that way you won’t miss a thing. Clicking any arrowhead in the floor plan launches the photo ---and the description for that area will appear beneath the photo .. but its all linked together so you can’t get lost.
The photos really showcase this property with its gorgeous carved millwork, moldings slab granite counters, built-ins and abundant walk-in closets, most with jamb lights. Speaking of walk-in closets, there are three “elevator-sized” ones. This home is elevator ready (to all three floors), complete with 220 volt electrical service and wiring and telephone service to the elevator shaft area*.
The Master Suite, and all bedrooms, are upstairs. Each bedroom on the second floor has its own bath and the rooms are all a really good size. The Master Suite is quite large. Just by looking at the drawn-to-scale floor plan you can see that the Master Suite takes up nearly one-half of the space on this floor … and also has two large walk-in master closets! Large? Yes, one master closet is 10’ 10” x 12’ 5” – now that’s large!
The Game Room (20’ x 10’ 10”) on the third floor also has a full bath and is spacious enough for a pool table, although it would also make a great media room. In fact this “flex” space can easily be configured to whatever purpose you desire --- even another bedroom; the current owner uses it as an Office with an adjacent Exercise Room.
Touring 9A Lana Lane is easy to do right here online --- but if you are interested in a property near the Galleria or Afton Oaks or Highland Village, you need to come by and see it in person! Feel free to compare it to other homes in the area … just print out the Amenities Text and take it with you -- with this one, you just get “more”!
Thanks for stopping by!

SMARTePLANS® have photos embedded inside the floor plan that launch with a mouse click .... each photo arrow is positioned in the plan where the photographer was standing --- so you can see where he was and what he was aiming at when he took the shot ... in relationship to the drawing. Beneath the photo is a description of that room. Once the photo launches you have a choice to link back to the floor plan and choose another photo, or read the amenities text for the WHOLE property (not just that particular room). All the files are inter-linked so you can seamlessly click around this property, viewing the photos and reading the descriptions. This is not a video ... you choose what you want to view ... or not
[NOTE: SMARTePLANS® are PDF files so they magnify to over 100%. When the file launches, click "View" on the top toolbar and make sure there is a checkmark next to the toolbar named "Select and Zoom". Every time you tap the plus key inside the circle the view screen enlarges (the minus key shrinks the magnification); and the magnifying glass with the plus sign in it marquee selects a specfic area of the drawings to be enlarged. Using the hand key and the scroll bars, its easy to move around inside the file, and then magnifying the features you want to see.]
