On the Market: Check Out the Eclectic Montrose Home of Art Collector George Lancaster

EYE-CATCHING, ARTFUL and eclectic are three words to describe what will surely be one of HAR’s most-viewed listings this week. The home of George Lancaster, a Hines exec and Houston philanthropist, has hit the market for a cool $2.1 million.


Located in Hyde Park, between the heart of Montrose and the River Oaks Shopping Center, the 2019-built home, constructed in a modern Tudor style by Gotham Development, boasts four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a formal dining room, a study and an enviable open living room, all with contemporary interiors by Allie Wood Design Studio.

Designer Wood fearlessly selected rich fabrics, textures and paint colors that played up and played off of Lancaster’s sizeable collection of art, which includes large sculptures, sprawling canvases and more. A charcoal-swathed study has geometric built-ins and upholstery in teal and cranberry velvet, colors pulled from the wall-size painting. Meanwhile, in the living room and kitchen, Wood’s spin on classic black-and-white is stunning, as in floating shelves with uniformly matted photographs and subtle yet seriously chic light fixtures.

Outside, the black-and-white trend continues, this time offset by kelly-green turf and a sparkling pool beckoning guests to dive in.

The home at 2028 Park St. is listed by William Finnorn of Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty.

RECIPE FOR SUCCESS, the Houston-based nonprofit founded by Gracie Cavnar, has become known for its annual Delicious Alchemy banquet dinner. This year, the feast was a more intimate gathering at Hope Farms, hosted on a crisp fall evening instead of the usual late-spring date. But what didn’t change: The tradition of serving course after course of delectable treats, prepared by some of Houston’s best chefs, often utilizing produce from the farm.
