The original Villa d’Este is an Italian landmark renowned for. Just like its namesake, Houston’s Villa d'Este exemplifies design and aesthetics, setting the bar for unsurpassed high-rise living.
Developed by Giorgio Borlenghi, who has also fathered Four Leaf Towers and The Montebello, Villa d’Este was the first expression of high-rise living in Houston since the 1980s. Tucked away on the banks of Buffalo Bayou, Villa d’Este is situated on Uptown Park Boulevard, an exclusive thoroughfare that allows residents access to the world-class shopping and dining on one end and on the other, discreet and direct admittance to Loop 610, a main artery waiting to whisk them to any destination throughout the bustling city.
Residents enjoy the privacy created by the six exquisitely landscaped acres that surround the 27-story building and a sunken recreational area complete with spa and heated swimming pool. They also benefit from the trademark Concierge Center catering to resident needs 24 hours a day. Access to the property is monitored by security professionals and parking is restricted to an underground garage. Among the 100 homes in Villa d’Este, there are maximum of four per floor, accessible from four high-speed elevators.
There is great attention to detail, from the 10-foot ceilings and hardwood and marble floors to the dramatic living spaces and breathtaking views of the city. Gracious formals are perfect for entertaining and walls of windows create a light and open environment. Island kitchens have granite countertops equipped with stainless steel appliances, including a warming drawer and other amenities. They also feature a walk-in pantry and a silver closet. Each residence has ample storage and at least one large balcony. There are also a limited number of domestic units available for live-in staff.
Villa d’Este is where urban living joins secluded tranquility in perfect harmony.
