This home is a warm, modern villa with garden gates and courtyards, decks and verandas. Tightly sited on a busy street in Bellaire, the home features tall walls of natural wood and abstract stucco. Stairs take occupants between four split levels, each with unique views of the gardens. A carved out metallic roofline creates a sky-window for the front veranda. Both guest and master bedrooms have deep screen porches with long garden views of the sunset. Intricate metal awnings soften the southern sun streaming in the living room through huge glazed openings. The interior has a rich contemporary palette of cork floors, black stained concrete counters, stainless steel edges and sandblasted glass cabinets. Polished concrete countertops in the kitchen contrast a white cast-iron farm sink. Stairs of black concrete climb past recessed art niches. Windows and glass ceilings surprise and delight throughout.
