Do you have $2.7 million dollars burning a hole in your pocket? If so, this beautiful house on Shasta Dr. in Hunter's Creek can be yours.
According to HCAD, it currently belongs to Dr. Alan Stanton, who is a dentist. I have no idea where he's moving or why--none of my business--but I was impressed with his art collection.
This large abstract painting is a bold splash of color in an otherwise pale, colorless room. I can't identify it. I get a mild Dorothy Hood vibe, but the shapes don't seem quite right. Any of you eagle-eyed art mavens know?
The two black-and-white paintings in this room seem more in keeping with the house's generally chilly interior. (Notice the awesome geode on the bottom left.)
That color-constrained elegance was carried over here. You almost expect Bryan Ferry to walk through the room--or at least for his music to be on the stereo.
This room has several smaller pieces, including the sculpture on the right resting on a mirrored pedestal.
Finally, here is one more shot of the exterior, featuring two mammoth geodes. I doubt they come with the house.
OK readers, I leave it to you--can you identify any of the art in this house? I can't, although three paintings here remind me of Dorothy Hood, in terms of her handling of paint.
