Welcome to utter comfort, style and serenity in this gorgeous five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom showplace in Houston's desirable Bunker Hill Village. Built in 2009 and carefully overseen by proffesional golfer Mark O'Meara, this fine residence is filled with premium finishes and personal touches throughout.

The dramatic barrel-vaulted marble entry, travertine floors and wide walls of windows create a stunning first impression in this spectacular 7,072-square-foot residence. To the right, a formal living area features a custom trophy case waiting to house your own personal achievements. To the left, the formal dining area is outfitted with a wine grotto, securing the home's position as an entertainer's haven. A well-positioned butler's pantry leads to the state-of-the-art chef's kitchen stocked with the finest appliances, including Viking vented six-burner range, double ovens, warming drawer and microwave; Sub-Zero refrigerator; two Asko dishwashers; and wine refrigeration by Uline. A sunny breakfast room and large family provide space for casual relaxation, while just outside, the covered summer pavilion invites seamless indoor-outdoor living with a gas grill, sink and fireplace. There are smart storage spaces, a built-in desk and a powder room off the kitchen, and a bedroom suite sits near the separate service entrance.

The first floor's northern wing is dedicated to the enviable master retreat and private study. The bedchamber features bay windows, a fireplace and stunning coved ceiling. Further on, boutique-like, his-and-hers dressing rooms flank the spa-inspired en suite bath, outfitted with two water closets, separate vanities, a jetted soaking tub and double shower. Gorgeous iron hand railings guide you upstairs to three more lavish bedroom suites with private bathrooms and walk-in closets. The large computer alcove is perfect for homework, and both the spacious media room and the game room include smart sound-attenuating insulation.

Beautifully landscaped by Glauser-McNair, the 25,000-square-foot lot is filled with gorgeous flowers and plants. There's a sparkling swimming pool and a hot tub, a large paved patio, and of course, there's also an oversized professional Green Links Inc. putting green with challenging contours and slopes. Mark's even promised to throw in a private putting lesson to the buyer!

Premium construction and top-notch systems ensure year-round comfort and safety, including double-paned windows, two tankless water heaters, full security system with cameras, and four-zone HVAC with touchscreen thermostat/humidostat controls. The large three-car garage adds ample parking and storage, and there's a convenient pool bathroom as well. Set on a quiet lane, a graceful circular drive and lush landscaping welcome you home to this fantastic Mediterranean abode in one of Houston's most sought-after neighborhoods.
