End of an Era: Becca Cason Thrash’s Famous Party House Is Up for Auction
A HOME OWNED by Houston’s most famous hostess-extraordinaire is hitting the auction block next month.
Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty announced that it will offer up the 20,000-square-foot Memorial-area manse owned by Becca Cason Thrash and her husband, John Thrash, via its online auction marketplace, Concierge Auctions, May 18-23.
Many Houstonians and revelers around the world are familiar with the Longwoods Lane home, built in 1965 and situated on nearly four acres, thanks to the epic parties the Thrashes have hosted over the years. Guests of philanthropic fetes, intimate dinners and glam galas have included the likes of George Clooney, Anna Wintour and even former presidents.
Obviously, the estate is made for entertaining, from its atrium-esque dining room and catering kitchen to an indoor gathering space home to a 44-foot-long pool (or, in some instances, a pool covered with a black-and-white tiled dancefloor, elevated runway or performance. stage!). The three-bedroom property was originally a modest midcentury brick home, transformed over the decades into a sprawling, 18,000-square-foot masterpiece of East-meets-West architecture with swaths of oak, slate and glass at nearly every turn.
