$1.4 Million Mansion in Houston Is an Architectural Enigma (House of the Day)

House of the Day, Houston mansion

This mansion in Houston is one of the weirdest things we've ever seen: It's like someone took pieces of a classic, stately chateau and an uber-modern spread and smashed them together. The listing calls the home "masterfully re-imagined," but as our friends at Curbed put it, that would be "totally accurate if said master is keen on imagining the weirdest ways to mash up architecture."


The 5,116-square-foot home's $1.425 million price tag might seem like wishful thinking for such an odd-looking place -- until you've seen the interiors. A dreamy recessed ceiling in the master bedroom, a dining room with a disco-inspired light fixture, sweeping living spaces and quaint his and her bathrooms all give this home an eclectic assortment of styles that at least won't bore you. Of course, Curbed doesn't see it the way we do, calling the interiors "cheesy." But friends can agree to disagree. (Love you, guys.)

With five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a wine cellar and wet bar, and a terrace with gorgeous 360-degree views, we're just looking on the bright side.
