Glass house in Texas for sale
It turns out New Canaan isn't the only town with a glass house. Texas has one too–and, while it's not a National Historic Landmark like Philip Johnson's Glass House, this one is for sale.
Elevated atop pilings in the center of a four-acre stocked lake, a small bridge connects this island of a home to the 23.83 acres upon which it's situated. If guests prefer, they can also enjoy a short boat ride to the home's dock and first-floor patio area.
Inside the three-story contemporary house, walls of windows and slate panels encircle an entertaining and lounge area adjacent to the kitchen. Upstairs, an open floor plan is the perfect place to watch a movie or catch up on work at the small built-in desk space.
On the third floor, a bedroom suite and seating area is the perfect place to fall asleep with panoramic views of the private lake. Other amenities include a five-car garage with two car lifts, waterfall with swimming pool at the top of a hill, separate guest quarters and three RV stations.
The price of the home also includes all furnishings (including a grand piano), skeet shoot equipment and a utility vehicle in which to roam the property.
Take a photo tour of the house above and compare it to New Canaan's Philip Johnson Glass House.
