Houston Real Estate: Katie Stassi’s Fabulous Home

I like to visit the website for the Houston Area Association of Realtors on a regular basis. I love real estate and houses, so checking the new listings has been a regular habit of mine for quite some time. Yesterday, I came across designer Katie Stassi’s fabulous Houston home. It just came on the market for It has been featured in both Domino and Paper City. Katie was recently named one of Domino’s Top 10 Designers.

The house, which was originally built in 1960, was taken down to the studs and completely remodeled between 2006 and 2007. The result is decidedly fresh, feminine, modern and traditional all at once. It looks like it should belong in the Hollywood Hills. Upgrades include bleached parquet floors, Carrara marble, and Viking appliances. The one story house is nearly 4,000 square feet in size and is within close proximity to Houston’s best shopping and restaurants.
If you’re interested, you can see the MLS listing here.

Fantastic kitchen (I think I would need more cabinets, though.)

Master Bathroom

Office complete with seagrass carpet

Lovely playroom

Beautiful little girl’s room. It reminds me of Apple’s room in Gwyneth Paltrow’s Hamptons House.

These images are from the MLS listing. It’s interesting to see how different it is styled when compared to the images from Katie’s website.

  1. That’s it. I’m moving to Houston. Because that house here in Marin County, the Bay Area? It would be AT LEAST $5 million. $989k buys you a 1200 sq ft 2 bedroom not touched since 1967. I should know–that’s what my house is. *sigh*

  2. One of the perks of living in Houston. I browse HAR all of the time, even when we’re not officially looking for houses (it drives my husband nuts). Beautiful home.

  3. Bandelle, I can’t believe I didn’t know you were in Houston until now. You will have to join us (Houston bloggers) the next time we get together.

    Annechovie, thank you for the compliment. I have admired your art work for quite a while now. I look forward to getting to know you better. :)
