    3 Remington Lane

    Listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, 3 Remington Lane offers an impressive history of ownership. Commissioned from the architect John Staub by Margaret Cullinan Wray, daughter of Joseph Cullinan, founder of the Texas Company (Texaco) and later owned by Texas Governor Mark White, this stunning, Regency Revival estate has been home to Houston and Texas history for many years. The Wray house’s cruciform pattern takes full advantage of the fan-shaped, 59,400 sf (+/-) homesite. Substantially renovated by the present owners in 2021, interiors offer tempered contemporary flair that freshens and invigorates the irreplaceable classicism of Staub’s design. The reception hall transitions rearward into the dining room (the former library) which overlooks brick patios, magnificent gardens and heirloom trees, and the lawn-dropped pool. Opposing wings angle away from the reception hall. One wing houses the main staircase, living room, formal powder room, and wine closet (first floor). The second floor includes a magnificent primary suite with a study; lavishly appointed bath with opposing sink cabinets, double-entry shower, dual water closets, and large bespoke closet. The opposite wing encompasses the inviting great room (formerly a palatial dining room) and walk-in full bar; a spacious gathering kitchen and breakfast area with exposed original brick walls, professional grade appliances, quartzite countertops, and front and rear banks of windows; a drop zone with rear staircase and storage; gym or media room; and two half baths (first floor). The second floor features large bedroom suites, accessible from either the main staircase or rear staircase, equipped with updated full baths and custom-fitted walk-in closets. Park-like grounds offer a stunning landscape of ancient mossy oak trees with trailing branches, serpentine beds of azaleas, fountains, brick patios enhanced by Staub’s signature ironwork, and sweeping lawn.
