{Home Tour} DRAMA, English Decor & London Style in Houston!

London townhome style with this stucco townhouse in Houston with dramatic interiors featuring black.

{Home Tour} English Decor, London Style Townhouse in Houston!

Love English decor style? Fan of black and white decor? In the mood for high drama? Cool. Don’t have a heart attack, but yes, indeed, JUST FOR KICKS, we are pausing from our usual programming of almost exclusively white, all white, white on white, neutrals, and shades of white decor today to peek inside a real estate listing I stumbled upon. Isn’t the stucco facade lovely!?!

While it may appear to be a home in London, it’s Houston! This English inspired, 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom four-story home is located at 1729 Sunset Blvd. in Houston, TX, and was built in 2006. According to Zillow, the 4,658 square foot townhouse located in the Rice/Museum District is fashioned after a proper London townhome can be yours for $1.8 million. The home has been used as a backdrop for numerous advertising and print ads in the past few years and was featured on the Property Envy television series.

From Zillow: “Four gorgeous floors of sophistication and style. Dramatic entry on first floor with full bedroom/bath and workout room. Second floor is open kitchen with breakfast room, balcony off kitchen, formal dining, living area and powder bath. Third floor is comprised of master suite, master bath and closet. Fourth floor with full bedroom/bath, living area, wet bar and dramatic balcony overlooking med center.”

It tickled me that the listing failed to mention the hundreds of cans of black wall paint which clearly played a starring role in the interior design of this townhouse! I recognized the kitchen counter stools right away as strikingly similar to those stools Drew Scott chose for his Honeymoon House kitchen in LA, and I have a bunch of other decor suggestions for you as well (affiliate links follow and when used for purchases may earn me a small commission).

    WOW! So beautiful, that room with the large black&white floor rug, decorative ceiling and gallery wall so cool. Can’t help but imagine all that black cabinetry painted white though. (I do struggle to embrace a black kitchen) Great to see something so unique, thanks for keeping it interesting michel

      Omg, Debbie, I would get tired of black cabinets in a week or less and you know I would have my paintbrush dripping with white paint! I thought it would be fun to mix it up and provide some contrast to push buttons! Happy weekend, friend. 🙂

    This house is fabulous! I think the man might love clothes, ties, shoes etc more than the lady of the house. That is some closet!

    • April 15, 2018 / 12:55 pm

      I have never seen such a closet!!! Happy Sunday, friend. xox

    So sorry to say this was too dreary, dark and dismal for me. I was so excited seeing the front of the house thinking it was going to be a beauty, but entering I was so disappointed. The highlight was the top terrace, I could finally breathe again and could see without squinting.
    Your blog is my happy place each morning, the beauty of all you see and your writing puts a smile on my face. Thank you

      I totally get it, and I could never live with such moody dark trims! Thanks for tuning in and all the kind words, friend. You know white decor will never be in short supply here! xox

    It’s lovely…but not for me 😉 In my area, all that black wouldn’t be much fun on the cloudy, long winter days. But it does have a certain class to it for sure!

    About that kitchen island…..Yes, I do like the butcher block but that ‘cut out’ design just says to me “Ouch! It’s a place I’d certainly bump into!”

    That walk in closet….. My goodness! It looks like a clothing store right in their own home! Does anyone truly wear and/or need that many clothing items, shoes, ties, etc? Just sayin’…… y’all 😉 But it IS Texas and everything’s bigger in Texas, as they say.

    This was a treat to see this home. It never hurts to see other designs. One never knows where inspiration may come from.

    • April 15, 2018 / 5:15 pm

      Yes! The closet is a boutique in and of itself. I love browsing real estate listings as a voyeur since when are we otherwise going to see closets or private living areas!?! 🙂

  5. April 15, 2018 / 2:01 pm

    It really does look as if it were in London.
    The only thing I don’t like are the notches in the kitchen island. I am sure I would always get a corner in my gut.
    I love all that black!

      Ha! I somehow manage to bruise my side regularly no matter what the countertop edge! Way to point out the liabilities! 🙂

    I’m sorry, but it’s too dark for my liking. I find the decor to be rather tacky and old fashion looking, as well. And, the cabinets and trim too dark. The outside is magnificent and the groomed gardens welcoming but once you enter the sun is blocked and darkness is your companion.
    I fancy the man of the house is a fashion horse. I don’t like that in a man. It seems shallow and not quite manly. But, one shouldn’t judge. 😉

    • April 15, 2018 / 5:07 pm

      The facade is so beautiful and was what captured my attention right away! Thanks for playing along! Happy Sunday, friend.

        I hope I didn’t sound too judgemental. After all, variety is the spice of life.
        Must say I am jealous of the walk in closet, or should I say closet room?
