Houston Estate Comes With a Rolls-Royce That May Have Been Shaq’s
Attention, luxury home and auto enthusiasts: Here’s a package deal that’ll have you revved up.
The owner of a custom-built, 10,050-square-foot estate is now offering an added incentive to lay out $9,250,000 for the sprawling Houston home.
Included in the sale is a 2004 Salamanca Blue Rolls-Royce Phantom that’s reported to have been previously owned by basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal.
While you’d certainly turn heads in that ride, the house is also worth a look.
Built in 2021, the seven-bedroom manse is in Houston’s prestigious Hunterwood subdivision at Memorial Villages.
“The house is just stunning,” says listing agent Toktam Ettehadieh, of Compass. “From the moment you walk in, it is just jaw-dropping.”
For starters, the library has a 36-foot-tall ceiling and is designed to hold up to 2,000 books.
And prospective buyers will be thrilled to learn that the home is being sold with everything in it.
“All of the furniture was custom-made for the home, so we are offering the home for sale fully furnished,” Ettehadieh says. “The owner-builder is moving out of the country, so it will also be available shortly as a rental.”
Luxury finishes and amenities include Italian marble at the foyer entry, 12-inch maple hardwood floors, an elevator, a wine room, and a home theater.
A chef’s kitchen features a breakfast nook and a gorgeous marble island with waterfall edges.
Also found on the first level are spacious dining and family rooms, a butler’s pantry, and a guest suite.
The primary suite has a fireplace, dual walk-in closets, a soaking tub, double vanities, and an adjacent room that could be used as a workout room or nursery.
Five en suite bedrooms can be found upstairs, with a kitchenette, game room, and home theater.
On the second floor, which overlooks a private yard, there’s a balcony with a surround-sound speaker system and slate flooring.
“The backyard is like an oasis,” Ettehadieh says. “When you are out there, you don’t feel like you are in Houston. You definitely get the feeling you are somewhere else.”
There is a heated freshwater pool with a Jacuzzi, a mosquito-control system, and a 2,100-square-foot deck—where you can relax and soak in the Texas sun.
As for the next owner, Ettehadieh believes it will be someone with a lifestyle similar to the seller’s.
“The seller has multiple residences, so I think the home might go to someone who owns several properties as well,” she says. “The town has exemplary schools, so I also think it will be a family that will buy it.”
The home is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, close to Memorial Park and five minutes to The Galleria shopping center and Memorial City Mall.
Just be sure to gas up the Rolls before cruising on over there.
