Sleek New Designer Penthouse on Westheimer Hits Market for $8.99 Mil

A SEXY CONDO a rep for its listing agent is calling Houston's most expensive new penthouse has just hit the market.


The River Oaks high-rise's Penthouse Two West, which combines 6,200 square feet of interior space with more than 2,200 feet of terraces and balconies, comes furnished for an asking price of $8.99 million. It boasts "14-foot ceilings, four bedrooms, four full-baths, plus a half bath and floor-to-ceiling windows with spectacular views," gushes the rep for Douglas Elliman's Rosie Meyers and Adriana Banks.

Houston-based, internationally in-demand interior designer Lauren Rottet is responsible for the décor, which boasts an updated midcentury vibe. A mostly neutral palate lets the sprawling panoramic views provide the color.

The River Oaks on Westheimer in recent years undertook a massive renovation and expansion and now markets itself as a white-glove property with posh concierge service for residents, in the heart of Houston's most desirable neighborhood — just minutes from the best shopping and restaurants in town.

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
