THE HOUSTON ASSOCIATION of Realtors, gathering information from the statewide Multiple Listing Services, has noted the “10 Most Expensive Single-Family Home Listings in Texas” for the month of July, ranging in price from $10.5 million to $24.5 million. One H-Town neighborhood — tony River Oaks — is where you’ll find both the Houston homes that made the list, which highlights homes that hit the market in the last 35 days.

At No. 6 on the statewide list, this 7-bedroom French traditional estate, whose back yard boasts a covered pavilion and gleaming pool flanked by a rose garden, is offered for $14,999,000. Set up nearly two acres, “the home is approached by way of imposing gates and a long circular driveway before reaching the dramatic entrance,” reads the listing. “Doors open to a two story rotunda with domed ceiling, drenched in natural light.

2121 Kirby Dr., #33

A unit in River Oaks’ most storied high-rise, The Huntingdon, hits number 10 on HAR’s list of the priciest new home listings in the Lone Star State. It’s on the 33rd floor of the elite tower, with a price tag of $10.5 million. With an Italianate sensibility, the 12,000-foot condo is rife with what the listing calls “completely custom” accents of wood, iron, glass, stone and “single-quarry-sourced book-matched marble.” The listing goes on to reference other amenities and luxuries including faux Venetian plaster, gild work, trompe l’oeil ceilings, multiple foyers and a Renaissance-style grand salon.

The recently renovated, design-award-winning modern setup has “outdoor loggias and terraces, stunning pool, tennis court, treehouse and a zipline,” the listing notes. Number two on the list is the $17.9 million “entertainer’s dream home” at 7841 Escala Dr. at Barton Creek in Austin.
