Green tree, tanglewood home, houston

Our Green Tree Showcase Home in Tanglewood is officially on the market! We hope you all love this home as much as we do.

Two years ago, our founder Chris Sims stumbled upon this beautiful half-acre lot and snatched it up. With five mature live oak trees lining the property, he knew this would be a perfect site for an extraordinary showcase home. We spent many months meticulously planning every architectural detail with the extraordinarily talented Robert Dame and fleshing out the vision with Kevin Spearman Design. After a year of high-quality construction, the home is finally complete and ready to share with you!
