Resting on over 4 acres of lush grounds and nestled behind custom wrought iron gates and manicured hedges awaits a lavish three-story French Renaiisance-style estate that exudes grandeur. Lying in wait, a duo of bronze lions serve as masters of the domain. Here, it’s easy to envision a life brimming with exquisite soirees and celebratory Great Gatsby-inspired affairs. While those particular occurrences and capabilities may not be essential for today’s lifestyle, the elegance and luxury of such remain.

A simple step past the threshold unveils an elaborate foyer entry. The extravagance of the 30,000 square foot interior immediately comes to life with crystal chandeliers, grand columns, art niches, soaring ceilings with detailed treatments, and a custom-designed birdcage elevator. Natural light dances across the marble flooring emphasizing the breadth and depth of the home while sparking the imagination concerning what awaits around the corner.

 

Just imagine elegantly clad men and classically dressed ladies wandering the main floor, a cocktail in-hand, and notes of smooth jazz drifting throughout. The formal dining, alive with chatter, would lavishly display gourmet dishes while the separate wine room would host an array of vintages. Once dinner has concluded, the formal living with cozy fireplace or inviting gentleman’s library would be ready to receive guests for gossip, relaxation and the possibility of another refreshment.

 

Whether for a simple family affair or large holiday get-together, The Estate on Grand Regency knows how to entertain guests. When overnight stays are necessary, six bedroom suites offer everything and more that a guest could possibly need. Emulated after Gone with the Wine, the Scarlet Suite features velvet curtains that adorn the windows, a crystal chandelier that illuminates the space, and two access points to a private balcony. The Casablanca Suite, on the other hand, utilizes a Gothic groin vault with chandelier, Gothic arches and Moroccan colors to capture the mystery of Casablanca an set the mood for a relaxing stay.

 

Aside from immaculate sleeping quarters, 88 Grand is also equipped to meet the needs of family, leisure, health and work all under one roof. 

 

Gamers, for example, will experience a thrill at the prospect of a friendly, yet fierce, competition in the gaming lounge with pinball and video games. Another large game room is even complete with an understated fireplace, shuffleboard, pool table and balcony access. For those who enjoy experiencing the latest box office releases, the Theater of a Thousand Stars features tiered seating for optimal viewing pleasure and an oversized screen that will make hearts flutter. A pre-screening snack or rootbeer float perhaps could be enjoyed at the 50’s-style diner that is complete with retro black and white checkered tile, and iconic red booths and bar stools.

 

The backyard is an oasis for year-round activity. During the summer, diving into the cool waters of the sparkling pool with waterfall and water features will be a welcome respite from the heat and humidity. Cooler weather will be offset by the summer loggia complete with detailed wood ceiling, fireplace and television, as well as the heated pool and two separate spas. For philanthropic entertaining, a family wedding, or a simple outdoor barbecue, the grounds are complete with a coliseum pavilion and extended patio for relief from the hot Texas sun.
